Jags boast of bigger videoboards with jab at Cowboys, Texans
The Jaguars soon will unveil their new video boards with a soccer match and a country music show. (“Hey, you got your peanut butter in my mayonnaise!”) As the team anticipates unveiling the largest such structures in the NFL, the Jags have taken a shot at the team with the giant, hovering four-sided drive-in theater screen.
“Not everything is bigger in Texas,” the Jags proclaim on a billboard at the I-95 and I-10 intersection in Jacksonville, via the Florida Times-Union.
The 362-by-60-foot video boards at EverBank Field are significantly larger than the 160-foot screen in Dallas or the 277-foot device in Houston.
Like many other teams, the Jags hope to give customers reason to choose coming to the stadium over staying at home. Unless and until someone puts a 4,344-inch flatscreen in his or her house, the TV will indeed be larger in Jacksonville. Especially since the Jags have two of them.
