Jaguars Fire OC Nathaniel Hackett

Jaguars Fire OC Nathaniel Hackett

The Jacksonville Jaguars' seven game losing streak claimed a victim Monday morning, as they fired offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett after yesterday's 24-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Hackett, who previously worked for Doug Marrone in Buffalo, was in his third season as offensive coordinator. Prior to this week's games, Blake Bortles had a passing DVOA of -13.4%, down from the 0.3% he had last season but not far off from the -9.9% and -10.0% he posted in 2015 and 2016. In other news, sometimes coaches get fired because you can't fire the players.

Injury Aftermath: Week 11

Another major injury for Washington, as they become only the second team this season to lose their starting quarterback for the year. Also, the Chargers lose another starting defender, the Eagles are again in danger of running out of cornerbacks, and the Buccaneers likely lose a member of their vaunted receiving corps for a while.

Le'Veon Bell's Holdout Is a Historic Disaster for Le'Veon Bell

Le'Veon Bell's Holdout Is a Historic Disaster for Le'Veon Bell

In honor of today's announcement that Le'Veon Bell is not reporting to the Pittsburgh Steelers and therefore is ineligible to play for the entire season, we bring you Mike Tanier's opinion piece on the Bell holdout from last week. He's not a fan of Bell losing a year of prime earning power because of the risk that he might get injured before signing a big free-agent contract elsewhere.

Top Potential NFL Head Coach Candidates

A good conversation starter here, as Trevor Sikkema puts together a list of possible head coaching candidates for next year. Obviously, the hot young offensive mind everyone in the NFL wants is Lincoln Riley of Oklahoma, but there's also Vikings OC John DeFilippo and Titans OC Matt LaFleur. There are some defensive minds on here, and some older retreads who may get new consideration. Norv Turner again? I suppose it's possible. Who's your favorite head coach candidate?

The Match Game: How NFL Defenses Lost Their Way

The Match Game: How NFL Defenses Lost Their Way

Great, really must-read series here from our old friend Doug Farrar about how NFL defensive schemes have fallen so far behind NFL offensive schemes, and just what coaches might be able to do about it. Part I breaks down how so many passive NFL coverages are just not prepared for the schematic complexity of modern offenses.
