Titans vs. Jaguars Monday Night Football: Can Gene Smith Be Jags' Bill Parcells?
The way the Jacksonville Jaguars have played tonight against the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football, outside observers might be tempted to argue that they need a new direction as an organization.
Considering Jacksonville's past experiences with the national media over proposed moves to London and Los Angeles, a few writers will put a premature two and two together with the Jaguars and Bill Parcells— who, per ESPN's Adam Schefter on Twitter, has left the Miami Dolphins.
"Miami knew this move was coming," Schefter commented, "just not this soon."
But over the past two offseasons, Jacksonville's been under the direction of Gene Smith, the first official "general manager" in franchise history.
In two drafts, Smith's list of starters has amounted to an impressive haul: Eugene Monroe, Eben Britton, Terrance Knighton, Derek Cox, Mike Thomas, and Tyson Alualu have all won significant roles on the Jaguars' offense and defense.
Where Parcells brought his hard-nosed football philosophy to big-market teams with deep pockets, Smith's nose for football players in obscure places seems a better fit for cash-strapped Jacksonville.
