Not sure at this point how far off the Jags are from being respectable again
Yeah, poor guy. There are only 32 people in the world that can say they're NFL head coaches and he's one of them. Give me a break, you "feel bad" for him? He's making millions of dollars and it's not like he's unaware of the state of the Jags, he could have turned it down if he wanted to.
FWIW, as far as 2 win teams go, the Jaguars were competitive. They beat a solid division rival at home, beat a Playoff team in *THEIR* building, lost 3 games in OT, lost to the Pats on the road by one score, almost beat the Packers on the road as well and were in a couple other games in the fourth quarter as well, before falling apart.
They say "You are what your record says you are." And I agree, but this team has some nice pieces in place and really was a few TD's away from really having 3-5 more wins. Still not a great team, but it's not the worst either.
