Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Despite speculation, Jaguars don't make any coaching change | jacksonville.com

Wayne Weaver showed again Monday that he is one of the most patient owners in the NFL. The Jaguars are 3-8 and eliminated from the AFC South race, but Weaver didn’t make a head-coaching change Monday. There was much speculation that Weaver might make a move after the 20-13 loss to Houston. Two of the Jaguars’ next three games will be on national TV, against San Diego on Monday night and Dec. 15 at Atlanta. Del Rio’s status will likely be the subject of much speculation during those national telecasts.

Jack Del Rio gambled to start the 2011 season when he jettisoned David Garrard in camp and inserted Blaine Gabbert into the lineup in Week Three. It didn’t pay off, and the Jaguars have a 3-8 record with the worst passing game in football.

This week’s performance was true to form…the defense performed admirably, and the offense stunk it up.  The Jaguars put up a -15.5 offensive rankings to put them at -63.8 on the season, which ranks 27th overall offensively.  Their +65.6 defensive rating, however, ranks fourth overall.  They rank third in coverage at +19.7 and seventh in run defense at +54.5, but the astounding rating is their passing rating:  -32.9.  The next-lowest passing rating is the Arizona Cardinals at -17.7.  The only team with a worse passing rating in 16 games last year was those same Cardinals at -57.8; the next-worst was the Panthers at -24.7.

Still the starter

What was true of the Jaguars’ quarterback situation late Sunday remained true Monday. Blaine Gabbert is the starter. Luke McCown is the backup. And although Jaguars Head Coach Jack Del Rio said Gabbert must continue to improve, he said the rookie will start when the Jaguars play host to the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football next Monday.

Pocket presence and a willingness and ability to step into throws are the two biggest issues facing Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Jack Del Rio declared Monday that Gabbert, who was pulled in Sunday's loss to Houston, will start a week from tonight against San Diego. But a day after Gabbert absorbed six of the Texans' seven sacks, Del Rio addressed a question about Gabbert's courage in a collapsing pocket.
