The Jacksonville Jaguars are out of options at quarterback.
Veteran Mike Glennon was solid in his first start for the Jaguars. He threw two touchdown passes and didn’t turn the ball over. However, he couldn’t sustain that kind of performance and came crashing down in his second start, where he turned the ball over three times and took a safety.
Things didn’t get better against the Tennessee Titans in Week 14 and he threw another interception yet again, which prompted the coaching staff to play Gardner Minshew. Just like that the Jaguars came full circle.
On one hand, it’s a good thing the ‘Jags’ kept trying things to see if something panned out. On the other hand, they wouldn’t be in this position if they had had a plan other than ‘let’s see what happens if Minshew flops’.
The team is currently 1-12, and there are many reasons for the team’s subpar record but quarterback is one of the main ones. Despite the fact their defense has been struck by injuries in recent weeks, the unit has played hard and kept the team in games a few times. Had the Jaguars gotten more from the quarterback position, they could have won a couple of games. Instead, the offense held the team back due to the lackluster performance by the quarterback position.
The team’s inability to address the quarterback position cost former general manager David Caldwell his job. Doug Marrone could be next in what has basically become a lost season. Whoever is at the helm next season needs to look at what the ‘Jags’ did this year to avoid making the same mistakes.
