3. The Jaguars can tweak their offense and try different things.
During Meyer’s tenure in Jacksonville, a report surfaced about scheme differences between him and the coaching staff. The report claimed the former head coach wanted to simplify the offense and use more Run-Pass-Option concepts like the ones he ran at the collegiate level. There’s a good chance he wasn’t on board with the things Darrell Bevell wanted to try but now that he’s no longer in the building, the Jags can try different things on offense.
Meyer didn’t use Robinson in the passing game often and that was one of his biggest mistakes in regards to coaching. The former Illinois State Redbird isn’t only great in pass protection, he can also catch the ball, hauling in 49 receptions for 344 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie. Why Meyer didn’t use him that role more often is anyone’s guess.
Also, Bevell needs to find ways to get wide receivers Marvin Jones Jr., Laquon Treadwell, and Laviksa Shenault Jr. the ball more often. In particular, Viska has shown the ability to break tackles and get deep. The coaching staff needs to give him a feature role on offense.
Since Bevell will most likely be gone after the season and isn’t fighting for his job, he should use the remaining games to experiment. He’s got all the incentives to try, as he can then tell his next potential employer he was able to thrive once the Jaguars gave Meyer the boot.
