Shahid Khan's first step: Remove interim tag from Mel Tucker and hire Norv Turner as Offensive Coordinator

In the past two days the Jags have made some of the best decisions in their history. First, Wayne Weaver ridded ourselves of the worst coaching hire in not only modern football history but all of human history but that is neither here nor there, his decision to make Mel Tucker interim head coach was a brilliant and underrated move. His first two decisions as head coach, to demote Mike Sheppard and fire Johnny Cox, further prove that. Tucker has created possibly the greatest defensive unit ever to put on teal. This is a unit that last season couldn't stop Betty White if she decided to thrown on a uniform and give it a go as running back. He built a cohesive unit with many new pieces and he hasn't had the luxury of having any offensive to speak of to give our guys a rest. In short, he has worked a miracle no Jaguar fan believed was possible at the season's beginning. Wayne Weaver's best offseason decision was to strip Del Rio of his defensive coaching and play-calling duties and give them to Tucker. Del Rio was a blight on the team but Tucker is one heckuva coach and our guys respond to him. He motivates and despite the injuries and the losses piling up there has been no drop off in the defense's play or effort. There is no doubt in my mind he will make an excellent head coach and he will be great for the community of Jacksonville. That settles that issue. We also have a new owner who loves football! According to reports he has great football knowledge and with deeper pockets than Wayne we will spend a lot of money in free agency to upgrade this roster. That leaves us with one big question: the offense. The answer is simple: Norv Turner as offensive coordinator. Our opponent of this Monday Night's game will have a huge coaching shakeup in the offseason and Turner will be fired. It is a foregone conclusion. One thing no one can argue with though is that he is a BRILLIANT offensive mind. One only has to look at his track record at developing QB's and his success as an offensive coordinator to see that he would be the perfect fit to come in and take Blaine to the next level. Need I mention his success developing Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin in Dallas or that he was the only coach to get something out of Alex Smith before Jim Harbaugh came on this year. Importantly, his offenses are not only known to be high-powered and exciting but also balanced and consistent. He will solve the offensive woes and he will be able to focus only the offense. His abilities as a head coach are certainly questionable but he is one of the best O-coordinators in football history. Jaguars fan deserve an exciting hire and someone with rings and proven track record of success. I hope this article gets Jaguars fans pumped up and Alfie I would love to hear your take on how plausible a move like this is. He coached in Miami and he has been moved all across the country so I do not think uprooting his family would be an issue and I also believe Khan would be willing to pay him the high salary he would command. He certainly can afford it. He would be the last remaining piece we need in Jacksonville. GO Jags and let's go help us out this Monday night by kicking some Charger ass. Buy tickets! Support the team!
