Their O isn't much to be proud of either 

Offense is pretty good when Julio is healthy. Without him they struggle to get things going.

To be fair, their entire secondary has been DECIMATED.  Doesn't mean they were top-notch anyway, but some of those guys were signed off the street to play.

 

I highly doubt this firing is all due to this season.  They were likely looking for a reason and 0-5 will do it.  But I think this has been brewing since the Superbowl meltdown vs. the Pats IMHO.

To quote Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon, "Who's f'ing next?!" I think it'll be Adam Gase. If Joe Judge wasn't in his 1st year with the Giants (and Barkley hadn't gone down) then he'd be in real trouble too but if they're 0-10 at the bye, he may be sacked anyway.

Im not sure why Adam Gase is a head coach.  He road the coattails of Peyton Manning and hasn’t done anything since.  Did the Jaguars get a new coach this offseason?   I can see Matt Patricia for the Lions getting canned soon. Anthony Lynn and Vic Fangio are also good candidates to be fired.

Doug Marrone has been the Jaguars coach since the end of the 2016 season. He served as interim coach for the final 2 games after Gus Bradley was fired, and he got the permanent gig that January. The Jags made it to the playoffs for the 1st time in a decade in his 1st year as their coach, advancing to the AFC Championship game before seeming to fall off a cliff, winning only 12 games over 2 &1/2 seasons since then, to include this one.

 

Lynn & Fangio are both candidates for the chopping block, although I don't think Anthony will be fired during the season but barring a postseason run by the Chargers, he's probably one of the 1st casualties on "Black Monday". GM Tom Telesco may also be in danger, although he has put alot of talented players on the roster, he's had back-to-back flops in his Head Coaching hires in Mike McCoy & then Lynn.

Fangio keeps his job because of his QB situation, which was brought upon by Elway. Unless Elway is fired, Fangio stays.

 

Lynn, if Telesco is gone, he is gone too. Doug Marrone has been hamstrung by both David Caldwell, the GM, and Tom Coughlin. I think he can do better without Caldwell in the picture.

Joe Judge seemed like a rushed hire, like Freddie Kitchens last year for the Browns.

I don't know, Elway canned Vance Joseph after only 2 years, and he wasn't exactly dealt a decent hand as far as starting quarterbacks go: in his 1st year he had Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler & Paxton Lynch all start games for the Broncos, and Case Keenum for his final season at the helm. Of those four, 2 are currently backups on other NFL teams, 1 is a free agent & the other is completely out of football.

 

I don't know if Telesco gets canned, he may or may not but in general, he's done a good job as a GM in stocking the roster with talent, and being able to extend a few of his better acquisitions. If he's made any mistakes, it's been his 2 head coaching hires, but he may get 1 more kick at the can in that regard. I could easily see Lynn going and Telesco staying, but I can't imagine the opposite scenario in which they keep Lynn & dump Telesco so you're right, if Telesco goes, then Lynn is definitely gone too.

Man, Justin Herbert looked good yesterday. That was a game the Chargers should have won in regulation. In 21 games, Anthony Lynn has lost 13 games of 1 score or less, that might bring him a lot of scrutiny.

Herbert is the real deal 

He's played well enough to win all 4 games that he's started, especially last night: 4 TD passes & no picks, and he got the Chargers within range to kick a game winning 50 yard fied goal (Badgley's max is 59 yards) but it hit the upright and bounced out.

Chargers should've won last night. Vinatieri did that too us last year as well. FG kickers are critical.

    • And if you don't want to include UM and name just players from South Florida or Miami attending Non UM schools, I will have a field day with this discussion. Don't do it to your self. I'll save you now.
    • You are not equipped to hold this conversation. Bringing up a small moment of "dirty laundry" of a program doesn't discredit anything that you cant findout, or know. which Im sure you know very well that South Florida is the mecca of football talent. Why would any sound/knowledgeable student/fan of the game of football, ever bring up PENN State (scandal) to disparage  or take away the impact, records, of "The Great" Joe Paterno? (Just like with Jeff Simmons, some slick fan wants to air out someones dirty laundry.)   Every program recruits heavily out of south florida. including Bama, Clemson, LSU, Mich, Oregon, etc. Dont be a hater now.
    • I hope not, you beating them would go a long way in helping us, even though it wouldn't be a conference or divisional loss but if they pick up 1 or 2 of those in addition to an "L" to you, we may run them down for the AFC South title as long as we take care of our business.
    • You didn’t know it was going to be a snooze fest when the schedule was made, I think around May.   Sometimes it just turns out that way and all the NFL can do is point to the TV ratings.   Ultimately, they are important for everyone. 
    • And you got beat by Florida International and Louisiana Tech last year......    But, I mean, The U does have the highest paid players. From the Pell Grant fraud, to Shapiro handing out cash and cars, I would hope they put more in the NFL than most teams. Add on the hidden drug test to keep players eligible...    Not sure why Miami's history of NFL draft picks is relevant in general, or has any bearing on why you're football takes are any better than anyone else?
