The Jaguars have found the first scapegoat for a season gone wrong.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Jaguars fired offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.

The Jaguars are 22nd in yards and 28th in points, so a case can clearly be made for a shakeup.

But they’ve been beset by dubious decisions and bad luck since the end of last season.

Their choice to extend quarterback Blake Bortles and not bring in legitimate competition for the job (when options were plentiful) was clearly colored by sentiment from last year’s run to the AFC championship game.

But they spent heavily on offensive linemen, and then running back Leonard Fournette was unable to stay on the field, and the entire plan fell apart.

Hackett has deep ties to head coach Doug Marrone, which suggests that there is plenty of pressure throughout the organization after a rapid fall which includes seven straight losses.

NFL coaches who will be fearing Black Monday.
Almost every NFL coach knows when they're hired that they will eventually be fired. Judgment day for head coaches is better known as Black Monday, the Monday after Week 17 games when some head coaches are handed their pink slips.
