Default Jack Del Rio fired

Not much of a surprise. 9 years on the job. Throwing your co-ordinators under the bus and mishandling the QB situation costs him then.

Mel Tucker - D co-ordinator - is the interim head coach.

Thank God.

The Jags need to completely clean shop, including Gene Smith. His gaff drafting Tyson Alualu at #11 Overall instead of trading back and taking Tebow killed this franchise. Alualu has been a bust, and Tebow looks anything but. Not to mention trading up for Gabbert, which at this point, looks really bad.

Regardless, this gives the fanbase a flicker of hope. Weaver is a very loyal owner to his coaches, giving them lots of time, and the weather is great in NE Florida. The team has some young talent. This should be an attractive job for somebody.

Koetter has been buried beneath Del Rio's ultra-conservative offense for so long, that he has lost the identity he possessed at Arizona State. Much like McCoys scheme has been buried beneath Foxes ultrconservative scheme.

Del Rios scheme reminds me of what Fox has been doing here as of late. Talk about ugly, watching this ultra-conservative offense move from one end of the field to the other is like watching a dog drag his ass across the rug.

There is a reason why our scoring offense is ranked 31st, and our No.1 rushing offense is ranked 23rd in TD's. STOP IT~!!

Overdue. He somehow found a way to hang around every year. I will say their GM is garbage.

I still wonder in amazement how you don't draft Tebow if you're the jags. Just purely from a business point of view.

God wanted Tebow to be as close to him as possible, IE Mile High, so he blinded Del Rio's heart, because he was not worthy; guy betrayed every starting QB on his team .

JDR hated QB's, guy refused to allow them to take the glory off the field. He is still pissed off at having to share the Rose Bowl MVP with you guessed it, the QB.

Del Rio devoted his entire playing career as a LB to shutting down the QB, having been tortured by them exploiting the front seven like cowards through the air, he saw to it as a head coach that they would not ever be allowed to get that opportunity, unless it was a life or death last resort sceneRIO. THE IRONY OF SEEING FOX PULL THIS STUNT IS MIND BLOWING.

Matt Jones despite his blazing speed, was relegated to being a possession receiver underneath the LB's. Jack Del Rio got off sending Matt Jones to be annihilated by the LB's. You guys remeber when he just laid therein the fetal position after making the catch underneath the LB's with no one around? Del Rio Broke him, no wonder the guy wound up being a coke head. You have to be on crack to play for Jack.

any time Todd McShay says something bad about a draft pick and everyone and their momma agrees with it. you might not wanna take someone that high.

their GM is awful, cutting QB's before the season, busts like Aluala,Harvey.
the entire structure is worse than Mike Brown in Cincy.

Don't forget that QB they took in the first and turned into a cocaine snorting receiver....a very poor one.

And....in typical Jaguars fashion immediately before selling the team, Weaver gives the horrific GM a 3 year extension.

This kind of dumb **** actually makes me thrilled we have Bowlen and EFX.

Rep, best line I read this morning. I hope the rest of the Broncos fan base really appreciate what a superb off-season EFX has had.

Knocked it out of the ballpark with Von Miller and had just a solid draft with the rest of the draft picks.

And getting Bunkley and McGahee are as good of FA acquisitions as any team in the league. Could they have done more? Probably so, but every team in the league could have done more also.

Sproles would have been nice. But that's okay. We can pick up Rodney Stewart in the draft.
