Video: Minshew Back at QB for the Jaguars as they Host the 4-8 Chargers Sunday

Coming off a tough loss to Tampa Bay, the 4-8 Jags will go back to Minshew Mania Sunday as they play at home against the 4-8 Chargers in a week 14 showdown.

Here’s a preview:

Jaguars Place Linebacker Myles Jack on IR

The season for Jaguars linebacker Myles Jack is over, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the team has placed the veteran on injured reserve, ending his season.

The knee injury that will keep Jack out the rest of the year was suffered in week 13 against the Buccaneers.

Jack was the Jags second round pick in 2016, and many were concerned about his history of knee injuries, but he’s never missed a game in his pro career.

The linebacker’s salary for 2020 will see his cap hit jump to $15.4 million next year on his four-year, $57 million deal.

Doug Marrone Names Gardner Minshew the Starter Over Nick Foles

Minshew Mania has returned to Jacksonville as Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone announced Monday that the talented rookie quarterback will start in Week 14 against the Chargers according to John Oehser of jaguars.com.

Marrone added that this move is “ideally” for the team’s final four games in 2019. He credited Minshew’s mobility as the reason for the change but Nick Foles’ fate was sealed after Sunday’s abysmal three-and-out fest against Tampa Bay’s porous pass defense.

Minshew didn’t complete the comeback against the Bucs on Sunday but did previously evade pressure and play above expectations in his last eight starts. Plus the mustache is cool.

The Jags have a huge offseason problem on their hands after signing Foles to a massive free agent contract in March. They will likely attempt to sweeten the pot with a draft pick when attempting to trade Foles’ contract this offseason but we would be surprised if there are any takers.

Designating the veteran as a post-June 1 release would entail the Jaguars take on dead cap hits worth $21.3M and $12.5M over the next two seasons.

On top of the Foles contract and salary cap issues, the Jaguars have to determine if Minshew is truly good enough to be their quarterback of the future.

The final four games of the season will be part of that evaluation but you have to wonder if any of the folks doing the evaluating-including Tom Coughlin and Marrone-will still be in Jacksonville to make decisions about 2020 and beyond.

Jaguars Can’t Claw Out of Early Hole Against Buccaneers, Fall 25-11

The Jags went to Gardner Minshew II after Nick Foles couldn’t get it done, but it was a defensive letdown and a bad day from the offense that cost the Jags in a 25-11 loss.

Here’s the highlights.

The 4-7 Jaguars will look to keep their slim wild card hopes in the AFC alive, as they stay in state to take on the Buccaneers in Tampa.

Here’s a preview:

Jaguars Executive VP Tom Coughlin Speaks Out, Declines to Speak on Marrone’s Future

The Jags are sitting at 4-7 after 11 games, clearly not where the team wanted to be just two years removed from playing in the AFC Championship game.

Tom Coughlin took it upon himself to speak to the media on Wednesday, and it came off as a testy press conference to say the least as he spoke for just about five minutes about the state of the team.

One thing that Coughlin refused to speak about is the future of coach Doug Marrone, who many think won’t back in 2020.

“The head coach is the voice of the program, OK,” Coughlin said. “I feel at this point in time that I’m needed to speak. Doug has come before you with his message literally every day since the start of the season. If I can help reinforce that message, then that’s why I’m here.

“We’re all in this together. We all want to win. You all want to win. I know that. You don’t want to write about a team that’s not winning; that’s not any fun. And we’re all in this thing together.”

Coughlin, who is 73 and has won two Super Bowls as the coach of the Giants declined to discuss whether he plans to return in 2020.

“There are five games to go,” said Coughlin.

Coughlin, Marrone and General Manager David Caldwell, signed a two-year extension in 2018 that puts them under contract through the 2021 season.
