Eric Bieniemy can turn the Jacksonville Jaguars offense into a top unit.
The Jaguars’ offense ranks 28th in points scored after 13 weeks of NFL football, and there are different reasons behind the unit’s dearth of production. The main one is their lack of a franchise quarterback, something their next general manager will certainly address in the offseason.
The Jaguars are projected to have the second overall pick in the 2021 Player Selection Meeting. They could use that selection on a prospect such as Justin Fields or Zach Wilson, but regardless of whom they draft, they will need the right person to mentor him and develop him. Eric Bieniemy can be that man.
Under Bieniemy’s tutelage, Patrick Mahomes has become arguably the best quarterback in the NFL, and even if he isn’t the best, he is among the top 3. While the former Texas Tech quarterback owes most of his success to his natural play-making prowess, his offensive coordinator has put in the time to tap that talent.
Keep in mind that Mahomes isn’t the only player that has benefited from Bieniemy’s coaching. Running backs Damien Williams and Clyde Edwards-Helaire have thrived with the offensive coordinator at the helm.
The same is true for wide receivers Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Mecole Herdman, and All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce. Simply put, Bieniemy knows how to get the most out of his players.
