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.
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.

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.
