Doug Marrone gives subtle hints that the Jacksonville Jaguars training camp will be different in 2017.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have wrapped up mandatory minicamp and OTAs. Doug Marrone dropped a fews hints about this year’s trading camp agenda during his final remarks. Seems like the new coach means business.
John Oehser reports on jaguars.com that Marrone spoke about areas of interest concerning training camp this July.
"Marrone said while the Jaguars will “start from the beginning” in training camp when it comes to installing the offense and defense, working on situations, etc., the hope is that “now we don’t have to go back as far” into the foundation…“"
In the summer of 1961, legendary Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi famously said, “Gentlemen, this is a football.” Marrone is taking a similar approach and will undoubtedly challenge this team. Because of the past losing seasons, things must change.
Every Jacksonville Jaguars fan has their area of interest. Some love defense and others love offense. Probably all have opinions as to which player is on the field. Questions will be answered as training camp unfolds.

Second, a high priority seems to be getting the team into a high level of football shape. Per John Oehser of jaguars.com:
"“We’ve got a long way to go, but I think now there’s a vision of where we need to get to as far as being in shape, how strong we want to be, how fast we want to practice and how many plays we want to get run.”"
Finally, situational football is being stressed. As a result, expect the red zone offense to be dramatically different. Remember in Week 1 last season that Jacksonville was in position to win? On fourth and one, late in the fourth quarter, inside the red zone, Jacksonville loses two yards on a wide receiver screen.
It’s a new season with a new regime. Let’s hope the new regime brings new results due to a winning season.
