That it's the end of the season is the good news for Paul Posluszny, who will have the offseason to recover. But the rest might not be so good. Posluszny injured his shoulder in the first half of Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. He'll have an MRI on Monday, according to a source, to determine the severity of the injury.
With the Jaguars beginning to request permission to interview coaches, thought I'd chime in with the league's rules about when coaches on playoff teams can interview. First of all, teams are required to grant permission to their assistant coaches to interview for head coaching jobs. Lateral moves are up to them, but head coaching jobs are not.
On the first day it could officially begin, the Jaguars were aggressive with their coaching search. The Jaguars requested and received permission to interview five NFL offensive coordinators on Monday — Atlanta’s Mike Mularkey, the New York Jets’ Brian Schottenheimer, Carolina’s Rob Chudzinski, sources confirmed. ESPN also reported the Jaguars will interview Denver’s Mike McCoy and New England’s Bill O’Brien.
Some things we learned from the season finale Here’s what we learned from the Jaguars’ 19-13 victory over the Indianapolis Colts Sunday. Some of it’s good, some of it’s bad, but here it is.
We overestimated ourselves. Even if we stayed healthy, as a dominant defensive and running team we serve as a blueprint for just how necessary an effective passing offense and true receiving weapons mean to a team. No, we didn’t intend or want to start Blaine Gabbert in 14 games. But we allowed a framework to exist where that is what we had to do, and we paid the price for it.
