Jaguars have an incredibly young roster

The Jaguars need to rely less on young players and supplement the team with experienced veterans.

The Jaguars are one of the youngest teams in the NFL. Without a significant emphasis on veteran players on the construction of the team’s roster, many of the team’s longtime veterans have been lost, replaced with budding talent. While being a young team oftentimes leads to thoughts of promise and optimism, the Jaguars haven’t been successful, and...

The Jaguars historically rely on the SEC in the NFL Draft

There is still playoff football going on in the NFL, but the Jacksonville Jaguars are in full offseason mode, currently searching for a new offensive coordinator and evaluating talent for the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft at the East-West Shrine Game.

Speaking of the draft, the Jaguars seem to, for better or for worse, have a love affair of players from the Southeastern Conference (SEC). This makes sense, given that the SEC is widely considered the best...

Jaguars are just bad at winning

Jacksonville Jaguars executive vice president Mark Lamping spoke with the Florida Times-Union editorial board earlier this week, in what was mainly a story about the development of Lot J downtown and where it’s at, but another comment made by Lamping drew both the focus and the ire of Jaguars fans.

“We have done a crappy job of winning,” Lamping told the Times-Union. “Hopefully we will get better. But just to sit back and say winning is going to...

Jaguars part ways with OC John DeFilippo

The Jacksonville Jaguars are making a late and unexpected change to their coaching staff. The team announced Monday that it has mutually agreed to part ways with offensive coordinator John DeFilippo after one season. DeFilippo oversaw the 26th-ranked scoring offense in the NFL in 2019. He had a hand in quarterback Gardner Minshew’s development into a viable quarterback option, but Jacksonville still felt that a change was needed. The veteran coach is an experienced hand, having served as...

Jaguars and OC John DeFilippo mutually part ways

While the Jacksonville Jaguars have decided to retain embattled head coach Doug Marrone, there are going to be some dramatic changes within his staff. After meeting with assistants on Monday, Marrone and offensive coordinator John DeFilippo mutually agreed that their marriage should come to an end after one season. This is somewhat surprising news given how well rookie mid-round pick, quarterback Gardner Minshew, performed under DeFilippo during the 2019 season. It’s also going to have...

Jaguars part ways with OC John DeFilippo

The Jaguars announced that they have parted ways with offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. This marks yet another short-lived stint for DeFilippo – all three of his OC stints have lasted one season, or less. DeFilippo served just one year as the Browns’ OC in 2015 and was fired as the Vikings’ OC after Week 14 in the 2018 season. Although the Jaguars say this divorce was mutual, it was likely a decision made by the team. In 2019, the Jaguars finished 26th in points scored and with an...

After just one season, the Jaguars will begin their search for another offensive coordinator

After just one season with the team, the Jaguars and offensive coordinator John DeFilippo have mutually parted ways, the club announced today.

Hired in 2019, DeFilippo was brought in to provide the Jaguars of a much-needed boost in offensive production after the team fired former Jaguars offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett during the 2018 season.
