Jacksonville Jaguars: Rankings 6 best QBs in David Caldwell’s tenure as GM
The Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t had a good quarterback in recent years.
The Jacksonville Jaguars recently parted ways with David Caldwell. Although he had some hits and drafted some talented players during his eight-year tenure with the team, Calwell couldn’t find a franchise quarterback even though he had plenty of opportunities to do so.
They say quarterback is the most important position in a football team, and that’s true most of the time. Although some squads have won Super Bowls on the strength of formidable defenses, the truth is that most teams won’t get far without one.
Thinks of the 2000 Baltimore Ravens. Former general manager Ozzie Newsome assembled one of the stoutest defenses in recent times and won a championship despite getting mediocre production from the quarterback position. Sure, they were a perennial playoff team after the fact, but they weren’t able to play on Super Sunday once again, and not having a franchise signal-caller played a big part in that.
The same is true for the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the 2006 Chicago Bears. Both teams had a dominant defense, but could only reach one Super Bowl each. Even the 2017 Jaguars made it to the AFC Championship thanks to their defense and in spite of quarterback Blake Bortles. Alas, they came crashing down once their defense couldn’t perform at a high level. Looking back, here’s a ranking of the Jaguars quarterback during Calwell’s time as the team’s general manager.
