Jay Gruden is Ready
You could sense when listening to new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, he is chomping at the bit to get his players on the field. That’s the only way the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to prove that their office isn’t pedestrian the season.
Many of the same parts from last year’s team are still on this roster. The addition of Eifert at tight end should make a big difference in how Minshew uses the field and his wide receivers. I feel Eifert can become a solid safety valve for the young quarterback.
The running game could change as a West Coast style is predicated more on passing than running the football, but expect Fournette to still be in an intricate part of this game plan.
What I’m most interested to see is the offense of line, as we talked about, works in unison to protect the passing game. Nothing will move forward, especially in the red zone, unless the five starters out front play better and offer more protection for the quarterback.
Also, they must be able to open more holes at the goal line for the running game. Should that happen, this could be a quite exciting offense to watch this year.
