Jacksonville Jaguars Offense: The focus of 2019
How will the Jacksonville Jaguars change their focus on the offense in 2019 after a season where there was little production from that side of the football?
The 2018 season left us wondering about the maturity of the Jaguars running backs.
With Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon’s seemingly disregard for their team being caught and displayed for the whole world to see in the final game of the season, the Jaguars need to go into the 2019 season looking to add some maturity on that part of this team.
Running backs coach Terry Robiskie must find a leader among this year’s roster to be the superstar. There needs to be a passion and a determination not to quit, to not give in, to dive deeper and to push harder in the red zone attempts.

With Nick Foles at the helm, these guys will need to step up to the plate and provide some real depth. With an $88 million investment in the new signal caller, this offense needs to be running on all cylinders.
With Foles, who has a quick ball release, these guys are going to have to be the right position to make plays.. No more waiting around to see what is going to happen. They really are going to be challenged to step up and to make big plays. We have the quarterback, but do we have the receivers?
We believe so, but do they?
And if these are our guys, what else does this team need to add?
Foles brings some fire and hopefully will attract some offensive line powerhouse players. If we have the quarterback and the receivers, we need the offensive line to protect Foles and to open holes. That seems to be the thing that we are lacking if we mix all this together.
We need these guys to be Jimmy Smith, but we need a Tony Boselli as well. Our defense being led by Calais Campbell has carried the weight of the Jaguars for too many seasons. We need the offense to match that output.
The Jaguars to continue to invest in this area of the team, but we also need them to be quality players, Our roster must want to do its job and want to be on a team that has the potential to reach the playoffs with all these changes.
As we hit on free agency opportunities and with our draft picks, this is the area that needs to be the focus. We need size, we need determination. We need head coach Doug Marrone and EVP Tom Coughlin to make this a priority.
The chain is only as strong as the weakest link. This seems to be a glaring issue. Progress is being made. Lets just hope that when we get through these next few weeks the puzzle begins to come together.
