Shad Khan sits in on Jaguars quarterback interviews


The Jaguars are obviously in the market for a quarterback, but they’re casting a wide net in Indianapolis looking for one.

According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the Jaguars have already interviewed 10 quarterbacks so far, including the top three prospects — Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater.

Since finding a quarterback is more than just another spot on the depth chart to fill, the Jaguars are throwing all their resources at the decision. Even though the interviews at the Scouting Combine are just 15 minutes each, the sessions have included General Manager Dave Caldwell, coach Gus Bradley, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch and owner Shad Khan.

“Everyone was in there,” Bridgewater said. “It was a great meeting, a lot of energy, a lot of smiles and laughs. I was just able to be myself. That’s the biggest thing, just proving to the coaches who I am as a person.”

Finding the right person to lead their franchise is a key, since the Jaguars have made strides in other areas of the roster.

    Question number one, are you distracted by empty stadiums and tarps?

    Nothing helps you find that franchise QB like a meddlesome owner. LOL

    I know nothing about what type of dude Kahn is but I always assume he’s cool because of that world class ‘stache

    Go for the Kid from UCF! He has a big upside because he can adapt his play and survive in the NFL. Manziel is notg going to listen and get killed. Bridgewater will go to Huston.

    Khan looks miserable in that picture.

    Do you suppose Manziel pulled a Ryan Leaf/Colts job on the Jags, and tanked the interview?

    Nothing wrong with that, if your about to hand over millions of dollars to someone, you should sit in on the interviews.

    If there were any red flags, He can voice his concern, and see how those front office is representing and building his franchise.

    I love reading comments from you guys who know nothing about the jags. Kahn is not jerrah, he likes to be a part if it but has said he leaves the personnel decisions up to his staff. Empty seats? Jags havnt had a blackout in years! For a team with a horrible record recently thats not to bad when you have playoff teams struggling to sell out. Stop regurgitating tired old jags jokes that you heard years ago… New owner, coach, gm.. This is not that same team.
    And please, stop with the tarps. Jags built and oversized stadium for the market for the Florida Georgia game, the tarps just bring the seating back in line with the rest of the stadiums.
    Old jokes are old

    These quarterbacks are so lame, Shad is wasting time.

    Bortles is a fat slug who ran his 40 .33 seconds slower than Gabbert at the same size. He is a dumber, slower, version of Blaine. Without the good arm and smooth release.

    Bridgewater is a mouse. Geno Smith with less confidence.

    Manziel is Manziel. I can’t dis Johnny, but I wouldn’t draft him either.

    Wonder if “moustache ride” was one of the punch lines in all this hilarity.

    Even without Tebow inside one of the interviews?
