Jaguars Offensive Coordinator Dirk Koetter Takes Scoring Personally

The Jacksonville Jaguars offense has struggled to put up points this season, averaging just 9.8 points per game and scoring more than 10 points just once, in the opening game. Some have attributed it to the bouncing around of the quarterback position and starting a rookie quarterback. Dirk Koetter dismissed that as a factor when he met with the media on Thursday saying, "Other teams are doing that. I can't even go there with my brain on that. It is what it is."

Koetter also takes is personally that he's the offensive coordinator for the lowest scoring offense in the NFL. "It feels bad. It's a bad feeling, it is," Koetter said. "I take that very personal, as do our other coaches. It's tough. You don't feel good about yourself," Koetter continued. The team looks to increase that scoring on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, but it won't be easy. The Bengals are allowing just 18.1 points per game, which ranks 6th lowest in the league. "I feel like crap the last two weeks," said Koetter. He added, "You'll have that feeling in your gut until you get on track, hopefully Sunday."
