Earlier this season I wrote an article asking if this should be Coach Jack Del Rio's last season in Jacksonville. Today, my question was clearly answered.
By the time the plane touches down in Jacksonville late Sunday or early Monday morning, Wayne Weaver hopefully will have pulled the trigger and dismissed Coach Del Rio.
It's time to stop avoiding the inevitable. Please do not give me the "it's a young team," "give GM Gene Smith a chance", or "it's only five games into the season" excuses. Del Rio has proven time and time again that he is not capable of coaching an NFL team.
He has fired more assistant coaches than any other NFL head coach in the last three seasons. How many more players can he suspend or deactivate? Today's victim was Mike Sims-Walker. The reason behind the decision is unknown, but surely it was critical enough to sit one of the more productive offensive players while on the road.
Earlier this season I thought the players were without passion or desire. Could it be possible that they simply are not motivated or want to play for Del Rio? Seriously, what other reason could there be for such a pathetic performance after last week's victory?
The St. Louis Rams come calling on Jacksonville next week, and they have yet to win a game this season. I will not be surprised if they defeat Jacksonville for their first victory.
I think its time for Del Rio to "chop wood" and turn in his resignation before Weaver shows him the door. That would be the honorable thing to do.
Final score: 41-0. Thank you for playing, Jacksonville.
