Marrone has been fired is still on Channel 12 website.

Old news.

Debunked.

I've got a simple proposal for next year. JAGS: PUT ALL YOUR RESOURCES INTO FIXING THE OFFENSE. 

Do you think we have a 'franchise' guy with Minshew?

You are correct sir!  They left the same headline, but inserted a small update in the original story.

No... Not even close
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Disclaimer: if you have no interest in having more money, stop reading.
For returning season ticket holders, a piece of advice from a rather successful capitalist pig. Do not renew at your initial invoice. Be patient and then ask to speak to someone up the ticket food chain.
Last year, when we indicated we were not renewing, we were offered pretty impressive discounts and perks up the wazoo. Thank goodness, we still didn’t renew. I cannot speak for non premium tickets, but if you renewed last year without negotiating, you are either not smart or like to be charitable to billionaires. This off season should be even better for opportunities.

I understand people wanting to renew, but why anyone would  give this clown show of an organization free money is beyond my comprehension.

I'm not sure about Minshew. It would depend on who else is available. But I think we could fix the offense given our draft choices , free agents, and coaching/coordinator upgrades.  But I don't think we can remotely come close to fixing both sides of the ball, so to speak. So FOCUS on offense.  Now that it looks like Caldwell is coming back, we are gonna need 'divine intervention' to make any progress.  Now I could be wrong, and I'm OK with that. I'm NOT OK with a $2.1 Billion franchise where absolutely no progress has been made in 13 seasons.

Quick question, what is the net operating income for the Jags for 2019? Anybody know?

Last night on the radio Pete Prisco suggested this could be Shad making Caldwell and Marrone live with their own mistakes for one more season. 

Since Foles and his ridiculous salary are going to prohibit major rosters upgrades elsewhere (Free Agency), might as well let these bozos tend to this mess a little while longer.  Sure seems like Shad wants to tank the season and let a new regime start fresh without the anchor.

With a possible lockout on the horizon, this seems like the best move from a business standpoint.

Impressive statement from Con. After losing double digit games 7 out of 8 years, “accountability will be paramount”.

I hope they raise ticket prices again. That would be great.

Thanks.  I'll report back with what they offer us peasants.

I'm pretty sure they're putting a lot of the dysfunction on Coughlin (based on what I've read, I'm not arguing that) and by keeping Doug and DC, they essentially doubled down on Minshew.  Foles was TC's guy - Marrone wanted to keep The Stache in (per reports).

I think Gardner absolutely has the potential to be a franchise guy.  He has a swagger about him and it was noticeable that he elevated the team when he was on the field, not to mention that it was painfully obvious that he was the better QB on the field for the Jaguars this year.

Forget about where he was picked in the draft.  He's still a rookie and he led the entire rookie class in basically every statistic that matters.  Two of those rookies, Murray & Daniel, were 1st round picks and picked to be 'franchise' players.
