It's time for the Jaguars to think outside the box

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

There's been a lot of talk on the World Wide Interweb lately about the Jaguars search for an Offensive Coordinator. Many are wondering why we haven't hired anybody yet and I can't blame them. After all, with the Miami Dolphins quickly moving to secure their General Manager of their General Manager, the Jaguars should have at least interviewed several qualified candidates at this point. With no end in sight in the coordinator search, I could only come to one conclusion...It's time for the Jacksonville Jaguars to think outside of the box.

Ever since the Jaguars cursed themselves by unjustly getting rid of David Garrard, who still had several great seasons left in him, they have been unable to score a significant amount of points in an NFL football game. It has become crystal clear that no matter what the Jaguars do, they will never be good. No matter what. It's written in the stars at this point and there's nothing you can do about it. With that in mind, it's time to try the only thing we could possibly do to find the next boy wonder genius kid Offensive Coordinator:

Hold an open tryout for the position at the Senior Bowl.

Think about it. We all love that new Offensive Coordinator smell until the first play in the regular season is a 2 yard run or the dreaded bubble screen. What's with these guys, it's the NFL not college. You throw the ball 30 yards down the field every other play or you go back to being a RB coach, it's as simple as that. What better way to prove that you aren't pulling the wool over our eyes than to tryout for your position at the Senior Bowl? Give a handfull of guys 5-10 plays to show what they are all about and then hire the guy who gains the most yards. It's not like we really needed to worry about coaching up a bunch of future undrafted free agents anyways.

Here are a few candidates for the job that I would give this exciting, inovative opportunity to:

1. Marc Trestman - Trestman coached exciting offenses in the NFL and CFL, proving that he can coach both cold and colder weather teams. Imagine what he could do in warm weather! Blake Bortles would be throwing for a Jaguars record 24 touchdowns in no time. As an added bonus, members of Jaguars Twitter would have an even easier time stalking his daughter.

2. Greg Roman - Nobody better to hire (and fire at a later date) than your old college roommate. Who hasn't ever dreamed of doing that? We all hated that guy and he more than likely stole one or more of your girlfriends. His name is also very similar to WWE Superstar Roman Reigns, which means that we would likely only need 5 plays to beat our opponents. Now that's what I call efficiency! Buleeeeeeeeee dat!

3. Scott Frost - Probably my favorite choice out of all the candidates. You may remember him from his masterful play calling in Oregon's National Championship victory this coming Monday. One NFL insider told me that he's as "innovative and cutting edge as it gets" and that's all I needed to hear.

4. Myself - As the Godfather of the Three QB System, I know more than anybody what it takes to think outside the box and buck the system. Way before the NFL became a pass first league, I was throwing the ball 78 times a game in Madden 2005. Everybody else was just going 4-wide with Michael Vick and running the ball all the time. Ben 4 Jags OC, why not?

5. Mike Smith - I'm only putting this guy on the list because he used to be the Jags OC. Not sure if he'd be willing to come back after Blaine Gabbert got him fired.

6. Somebody 1010XL has never heard of - I bet you've never heard of him either! He's probably a great candidate and deserving of a shot at the next level in the NFL coaching hierarchy, but he'll never be good because of his name. It's probably Kirby or something LOL!

So what do you think? Should the Jaguars have an open tryout for OC and make them prove their worth?
