If you follow any Jaguars fans on Twitter or get any e-mails from fans like I do, they want Jack Del Rio fired.
As things are going, I believe it's inevitable that Jack Del Rio will be fired at the end of the season. I'd be shocked if Wayne Weaver fired Jack Del Rio mid-season. It's just not his style and I don't believe it'd change much.
If Jack Del Rio is fired mid-season, what's it really accomplish? All that would happen is someone like offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter or quarterback coach Mike Shula would be promoted to interim head coach. That might make the offense open up a little more, but realistically it accomplishes nothing.
I can't remember the last time an interim coach was installed mid-season and a team went on to have success. I guess you could point to Mike Singletary, but do you really want to point to Mike Singletary considering his football team is currently 1-5?
The frustration is understandable, as since the Jaguars signed Jack Del Rio to an extension after the 2007 season, the team has gone 15-23. Not only have they gone 15-23, but the team has looked like it quit and was il-prepared on multiple occasions. The team has tanked at the end of seasons in December multiple times.
Again, I'd be surprised if Jack Del Rio was fired before the end of the season, as the season's not totally lost. The team is just 3-3 with a lot of football left. It does feel however, as if it's dead man coaching.
