Jacksonville Jaguars: Mediocrity Accepted as Jack Del Rio Gets Another Chance

Wayne Weaver, the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, announced today that head coach Jack Del Rio will be retained after another disappointing season in 2010.  At one point, the Jaguars were in the driver's seat in the AFC South but choked it away by losing the final three games of the season, including to rival Indianapolis Colts.

Prior to the 2010 season, Weaver promised the Jaguars fans that he would not accept mediocrity, hoping that fans would return to Everbank Stadium after staying away in 2009.  The fans believed him, and what did they get for their blind faith?  Another lackluster season without a trip to the playoffs.

Jacksonville Jaguars fans did their part by attending home games and preventing blackouts unlike the 2009 season.  Every 2010 Jaguar home game was televised due to fan attendance and support.

However, Wayne Weaver did demand a few changes, and coupled with circumstances and finances, some would argue he had no choice but to keep Del Rio.

Let's review everything that went into his decision and determine if it was the best course of action.
