His first four years in Green Bay were laced with a bevy of high-octane victories and playoff appearances. Not the case in Jacksonville, though, where the cover man watched the Jaguars manage just five wins last season as a bottom-feeder in the AFC.
That's all about to change, according to House. The 26 year old told reporters this week that Jacksonville is finally ready to make the leap.
It's fair to be skeptical, but Jacksonville has plenty of talent, starting with an offense led by promising young passer Blake Bortles.
Most importantly, owner Shad Khan has patiently refused to panic, giving general manager David Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley the time to develop a squad that looks ready to compete in the AFC. It's premature to ticket the Jags for January play, but House isn't the only believer in NFL circles.
