The Jaguars somehow found a way to top their 9-6 loss to the Titans earlier this year, by getting plowed 30-9 by the Titans last night.

While they scored more points, it was hard to call it an offensive improvement, amid all the changes they’ve made on that side of the ball.

At least Jaguars coach Doug Marrone knows more changes are coming.

“They have us right now,” Marrone said of the Titans, via Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. “It’s the last time we play them this year, and next year it will be a different team.”

He might have been speaking of the offense in particular, but there’s no reason to think they’d stop there. The Jaguars have followed last year’s AFC Championship Game run with a complete flop, falling to 4-9 in the most embarrassing fashion.

Jaguars fire offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett

Jaguars fire offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett 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 [more]

He knew he was a good football coach. He felt good about what his teams did in Syracuse and Marrone 's next big moment in front of the cameras came in late December 2016, when Jaguars coach Gus Marrone and Coughlin were on the same page with the changes in the Jaguars ' locker room.

Doug Marrone and Tom Coughlin both have historically had 4-3 defenses when News came out late last week that the Jaguars interviewed former San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly prior I’m sure everyone knows my feelings on positions you should and shouldn’t pick in the Top 10 in the NFL

Marrone has already offered up offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett (who has been with him for years, going back to Syracuse), and they benched Blake Bortles. But nothing replacement play-caller Scott Milanovich or backup quarterback Cody Kessler could muster was going to fix an offense that’s missing a number of key starters.

They’re down to their fourth left tackle (Ereck Flowers, oy), and their starting left guard and center are on IR, along with wide receiver Marqise Lee and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

But mostly what they’re missing is direction. That could change too.

Jags sticking with QB Kessler despite woeful, 3-game stretch.
Quarterback Cody Kessler has taken the Jacksonville Jaguars to a new low in 2018. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); The Jaguars (4-10) have totaled 658 yards in three games since Kessler replaced inconsistent starter Blake Bortles, including a season-low 192 yards in a 16-13 loss to Washington on Sunday. It's the franchise's worst three-game stretch of offense since Blaine Gabbert's second year in 2012.
