So according to some sources it’s being rumoured that the jags are signing George Warhop (offensive line) and Tim Walton (defensive backs)....
Seems odd to me seeing as we haven’t hired a OC yet?
U’d think the offensive coordinator might want to sign his own assistants

Well ladies and gents (and all the rest) we have our OC; John DeFilipo!!!
Actually really happy with this hire compared to the other candidates that were left! I know he had an awful run in minesota last year but I’ll take him over McCoy and the hobos (sorry guys) any day of the week!
This has led to speculation we are looking to acquire Nick Foles as our starter. DeFilipo was widely credit in helping Foles as QB coach in philly’s run to the super bowl.
Jags have also signed Alex McGough to a reserves/future contract. Again, love this signing and hope he pushes Kessler out of back up position.

Tom Coughlin defends extending Blake Bortles a year ago

A year ago, flush with excitement over making the AFC Championship Game, the Jaguars gave quarterback Blake Bortles a $54 million extension.

This week, they got rid of the quarterback and the contract, leaving a $16.5 million pile of contractual ashes in the form of dead money on the salary cap.
And yet, Jaguars executive Tom Coughlin was compelled to defend it.

It was the right thing to do,” Coughlin said of the extension, via Phillip Heilman of the Florida Times-Union. “The guy took us to the AFC Championship Game, and there wouldn’t have been anybody that would have disputed the fact that he deserved the opportunity and we played well behind him.”

Actually, Coughlin probably could have found someone to dispute that. Bortles was a classic case of helping a team to the playoffs without leading a team to the playoffs, largely by getting out of the way and letting their defense take the lead. He had his moments, and wasn’t completely incompetent, but there’s a reason the Jaguars ditched him in favor of Nick Foles.

Certainly, letting Bortles play out 2018 on his fifth-year option was an option, since their books would have been clear now. But the Jaguars bet on Bortles. And lost. And now they get to continue to account for cap space for him, a heavier burden than the flimsy justification Coughlin offered.

Carolina Panthers. Zach Wilson.
DJ Chark is quietly becoming a superstar ...

The Minshew hype is warranted but this guy needs some love too. Some of the plays/catches he made against the Panthers last week were incredible.

Most improved player in the league on offense. And it's not close.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone has been informed that he'll be fired following Week 17's game with the Colts.
PFT's Mike Florio and the Jaguars have denied the report. Marrone's three-plus seasons as Jacksonville's coach have been largely unsuccessful, posting a 21-28 record (.429 win percentage) going into Week 17. The Jaguars have been in steep decline since Marrone led them to the 2017 conference championship. Marrone is the definition of replacement-level with a draconian style that clashes with today's NFL. If Marone is ultimately let go, the question becomes whether the Jaguars also fire GM Dave Caldwell.

About damn time, Marrone is slimy weasel. Will throw anyone he can under the bus to protect his own hide.

Khan should have sacked Caldwell's arse many moons ago also.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jaguars ownership will meet with coach Doug Marrone Tuesday.
There were reports over the weekend that Marrone was informed he would be fired following the Week 17 game, but co-owner Tony Khan vehemently denied those reports via Twitter. The Khans will meet with Marrone tomorrow and move forward with a decision. It would be a surprise if Marrone gets another shot, but crazier things have happened. GM Dave Caldwell also shouldn't be getting too comfortable.

I'm more pissed with how their handling the yannick ngakoue contract. He should've been secured ages ago and now likely we don't have the space to pay him. Dumb in the extreme.

with the jags announcing two of their 8 home games will be in london for the foreseeable future, fans are livid (for good reason) and some have begun action to prevent it from happening.

apparently the jags are going to have two HQs -- one in each city.
