4 ways Jaguars can salvage something from the 2021 season
The Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t very good but there are reasons to be optimistic heading into the offseason. The Jags took a big burden off their shoulders when
they fired Urban Meyer a few days ago
. Earlier this year, the Ohio native was brought up to turn the team around and transform it into a perennial contender. Things didn’t play out that way and he often showed he was unqualified for the job, frequently
making questionable decisions on and off the field
Without Meyer at the helm, the Jaguars should be more competitive and more fun to watch. Moreover, their coaching staff and the players should be excited to prove they’re a better team than they’ve shown over the last 13 games. Although the Jags are eliminated from playoff contention, there are still four games left in the season and they can use them to finish on a strong note.
After all, the Jaguars have more than enough talent to compete and it wouldn’t be shocking to see them win two of their last four matchups, which would tie Meyer’s totals in his short stint. Even though Jacksonville has a 2-11 record ahead of Week 15, they have some solid pieces in place to compete.
Interim head coach Darrell Bevell needs to put his playmakers in a position to succeed, something his predecessor rarely did. He told the media Wednesday he was grateful for the opportunity to coach the Jaguars for the remainder of the season. He will surely make the most out of it and here are four ways he can salvage something from the 2021 season.
