  1. Fact is, senior bowl is in 9 days and there's no OC or QB coach in place. Might want to get on the same page with those guys and have a meeting or two before heading out to evaluate offensive/QB talent. I think Dorrell has a real shot at the job because he'll be the only guy who has worked with the staff and seen the current QB's extensively.
  2. Having been snubbed by the Eagles and things not working out with the Den RB coach, what will Bowles say when they eventually hire an OC or promote Dorrell? I'll start... "He was our number one guy from the start, we just had to make sure the timing was right. It's always a good thing when you get your top choice"
  3. Especially when you see what Coles and Moss did when they left for the Redskins.
  4. Impossible guy not to root for, but I'll never forget the season opener in KC when his first two passes literally looked like punts. He had WR's standing there wide open and waiting for the ball to come down. Made Fitz's arm look like Favre.
  5. Fans are worried about the team finding an OC who wants to come here, and the team can't even convince a position coach to join the staff.
  6. This place would be insane if Bowles had hired Hackett's kid. It would have been the best and worst time for @Maxman to run JetNaion, all at the same time. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000776268/article/jaguars-name-hackett-as-new-oc-kelly-still-available?campaign=tw-nf-sf51694895-sf51694895&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral Chip Kelly won't be coaching in Jacksonville anytime soon. The Jaguars on Wednesday named Nathaniel Hackett as their offensive coordinator, making his position a permanent role after he served as the interim play-caller for the latter part of the 2016 season. The 37-year-old Hackett worked as the team's quarterbacks coach last season and for the first seven games of this year's campaign before taking over for the fired Greg Olson after a Week 8 loss to the Titans. Hackett's handiwork was enough to convince new head coach Doug Marrone that the in-house option was preferable to Kelly, who interviewed for the position this week. "We are excited to announce Nathaniel Hackett as our offensive coordinator and he will immediately be tasked with installing and implementing our offense this offseason," Marrone said in a statement. "I have had the pleasure of working with Nathaniel for seven consecutive seasons and know firsthand how knowledgeable and passionate he is about winning." Hackett, of course, followed Marrone from Syracuse University to the Buffalo Bills before joining the Jaguars in 2015. The trick in Jacksonville boils down to turning quarterback Blake Bortles into a reliably functional starter. Fans saw progress in the signal-caller over Marrone's two-week coaching stint to close the season, but Bortles was a white-hot mess for much of the year. As the team's website points out, though, the Jaguars saw considerable improvement after Hackett replaced Olson, with the offense trending up in time of possession (30th to 13th), goal-to-go efficiency (15th to fourth) and red-zone efficiency (16th to fifth). During that span, Jacksonville also upped its ground game from 30th in yards to fifth and 26th to 13th in yards per rush. This bruised fan base can only hope for more of the same come September.
  7. Wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better.
  8. If only TD/INT ratios were important.
  9. Happy to admit when I'm wrong. I thought the guy might get beat out by Dozier or Watts and didn't look very good during the PS. I'm sure at one point I thought he might not make the roster. I know most weren't very big fans of his, but not hearing much of that now that he's an improved player.
  10. He did also sign Ivory and Decker who each had one good season, so of the 25+ players he signed/traded for/drafted, at least a couple of them turned out to be NFL caliber.
  11. I'm gonna' correct myself on the previous comment. I was just waking up (UK time) when I saw this story and thought it said 4 yrs/$8 million. Figured Wintes' agent hated his guts. Best guards in the NFL make $10 million, so I thought Winters would get somewhere in the neighborhood of $6-8 million depending on the bidders. Looks like the Jets locked him up now at what's neither a great or terrible price. One less gap on the roster moving forward, LOTS of big cuts on the horizon.
  12. Really surprised he didn't test FA. Got a lot less by signing that deal IMO.
  13. Never been out that way but my wife lived there before she moved to Wimbledon. Looking forward to getting back to Dublin for a few nights out. One of my favorite cities in the world.
