Del Rio to Stay on as Jaguars Head Coach

One job that does not appear that will be opening up is that of the Jaguars coaching position. The AP is reporting that Jack Del Rio’s job with the club is safe, despite a collapse at the end of the season that cost the team the playoffs.

Owner Wayne Weaver has not made his decision public. Weaver will address the media at 5:30 p.m.

The Jaguars wrapped up the year Sunday at 8-8, as they fell to the Texans in Houston. The team wrapped up the season with a three-game losing streak, blowing a chance to clinch the AFC South and return to the postseason for the first time in three years.

Jacksonville ended last year on a four-game slide, and the team is 4-11 in December and January under Del Rio the last three years.

    Here we go again. Another promise not fulfilled by Jack Del Rio and Wayne Weaver. They promised us better play and that this team is on the rise, but where it counts is in the win/loss. I love football, but not the football played here in Jacksonville. It’s hard to sit around and hope for more when your local teams bring nothing more than false hope. Other cities and owners seem to understand that winning sells tickets and fan loyalty. Two names come to mind: Mike Tomlin and Sean Payton. My question to Mr. Weaver is why should we spend our hard earned money to buy tickets to watch a team make a home in mediocrity?
