The Jaguars are in a slump. Fans are beyond frustrated, the team has a lease keeping them locked until 2030, but the lure of L.A. is still strong.

The best solution, also the fastest solution, is to hire a new head coach.

One who knows how to win and maybe has a bit of a chip on his shoulder and something to prove. Maybe someone who is a bit of a Pirate, who would be ready to swing his saber like mad again.

If you don’t get the references the man is Mike Leach.

And Leach is the shot in the arm this team needs. He is more then a shot in the arm. He is a big boot to the ass.

Has he made some mistakes? Sure, who hasn’t? Does he deserve a second chance?

Can he win at the level of the NFL? Without a doubt he can and will, so why not Jacksonville?

Jacksonville and Leach are made for each other.

Leach and the Jaguars could redeem each other in the process, and most importantly they would be winning again. Not the 17-14 wins that has us all sleeping at half time, he would bring back fun to the city. He would bring back excitement. Leach may very well be the man that can save the Jaguars.

The man is an offensive genius, and his obsession with Pirates comes from their team-work, which the Jag’s need right now. Leach instills a sense of pride not only in his teams, but in the communities that those teams play. Leach motivates his teams to win. He understands that you can win with any talent you have as long as that talent is used in the right way.

His record in 10 years at Texas Tech was 84–43; his only five-loss season came in his first year in 2000. Before that as the Offensive Coordinator at Kentucky his offense broke 4 NCAA and 42 SEC records.

He is the most dangerous man on the sidelines in the game. He has the fire, passion, and creativity that Spurrier had in the 1990’s.

Leach and the Jaguars need each other, and Jacksonville needs them both.
