A 5–11 season, following a playoff run, tends to be a warning sign that a team is nearing the end of its relevance. Teams can either hang on and hope for one last hurrah, or make a drastic shift to try to nip the problem in the bud before bad habits and losses become a yearly occurrence.
Thankfully, the Jags chose the latter, and after an offseason purge, they are back with a fresh new look.
The most noticeable change comes in the form of one of the coordinators. Gregg Williams, bastion of giving up the big play and defender of all things sloppy, is gone.
Apparently, when the Jags hired defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, the job description stated something like the following: “at absolutely no point should our defensive line be counted upon to either sack the quarterback or to stop the run. Defensive backs should jump at the receivers’ first twitch; odds are, he’s not going to make a double move.”
Gregg Williams fulfilled that requirement and then some. However, the drunken intern who logged into the official Jags’ defensive coordinator online application and mucked it all up eventually fessed up to the changes and was canned (it's handled much like a wiki, you can really add whatever you want).
After management cleared up that mess, they fired Gregg Williams as well as he had coached the Jaguars' defense to some of the worst numbers in head coach, Jack Del Rio's tenure.
Replacing Williams is ex–Cleveland Brown's defensive coordinator, Mel Tucker.
Two, often overlooked positions—the special teams coordinator and the strength and conditioning coach are held by shining, new faces as well.
You will get to meet each of the new guys, but you won't get to haze them. We adhere to a strict, no hazing rule here in Jacksonville.
You'll also get to re–meet the old guys.
After five months of other useless crap getting saved on your brainputers, you've probably forgotten all about the Jaguars (I know I deleted 2008).
