Jags Fire Their Befuddled Offensive Coordinator

The Jacksonville Jaguars entered the 2016 season with actual playoff aspirations.

What a ridiculous notion.

The Jags are arguably the most disappointing, underachieving team in the NFL right now.

And true to their incompetent form, they're flailing about helplessly, searching for answers.

The typical blueprint for such a scenario is to look for a scapegoat, perhaps one of the coordinators.

But on what side of the ball?

Hey, the offense is really struggling, so let's fire the corresponding coordinator.

This is why Greg Olson was unceremoniously relieved of his duties this past week.

He'll no doubt be the first domino to fall, as the Jags seem to have little direction, despite an abundance of young talent.

Olson was likely not the problem, nor will his replacement -- Nathaniel Hackett -- be the solution.

The Jags have problems, plural.

As long as Blake Bortles continues to regress and the team ignores the running game, this downward spiral will probably continue.

Head coach Gus Bradley will likely be the next to go, despite a recent vote of confidence from owner Shahid Khan.

And so it goes.
