Did The Jacksonville Jaguars Sale Surprise Anyone Else?

I mean, we all knew the franchise was struggling and that eventually something had to give -- either a new owner or a new locale -- but I swear, this kind of felt like Wayne Weaver just ambled down to the parking lot and offered it to the first taker (not to rag on Shahid Khan).
