JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars center Brad Meester remembers every detail of the play.
His snap, his block, his celebration. Every nuance is as clear as David Garrard’s run on a fourth-and-2 play that stunned the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2007 playoffs. Meester also recalls the officials failing to flag what seemed like an obvious hold.
Equally memorable, and certainly a topic of conversation as the Jaguars (1-4) prepare to return to Pittsburgh, is the aftermath of Jacksonville’s 31-29 victory. It was the franchise’s first postseason victory in eight years, but has since been dubbed the “worst win” in team history.
The Jaguars rewarded Garrard and Del Rio with huge contracts, then traded seven draft picks to select defensive ends Derrick Harvey and Quentin Groves. The moves altered the landscape of the franchise.
