Malik Jackson Says Jacksonville Jaguars Are Going To Win The Super Bowl This Season
The Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t had a winning season since 2007, which was also the last time the franchise made the playoffs. And they’ve only had two playoff appearances since 2000.
That’s a lot of terrible football, but none of that means anything to Malik Jackson, who believes the team is on the cusp of doing something great this year.
The Jaguars star defensive tackle told “The Simms and Lefkoe Podcast” that the Jags would be winning their first ever Super Bowl in franchise history this upcoming season. He was serious.
“That’s what I believe and, until we lose, that’s when I’ll believe different,” Jackson said, according to NFL.com’s Marc Sessler.
“The Panthers did it. If the Panthers can do it after the season they had (going 7-8-1 in 2014) … But we’re going to win the Super Bowl. If they can do it, why can’t we?”
Jackson’s new found confidence apparently stems from the much-improved leadership on the squad.
“I’m very confident. It truly feels different … I think it’s a lot of guys coming in here and coming to Jacksonville saying, ‘I’m gonna change this. I’m gonna do this. I’m gonna do that,'” Jackson said. “We have leaders. We have a lot of great players. We just need to be consistent, and that’s on all three sides of the ball: offense, defense, and special teams.”
He added: “I think having that and being who we all are, it should be a great year. After the Super Bowl, we’re going 16-0, we’re going all the way.”
