This week, we asked Jacksonville Jaguars fans where changes need to be made this offseason.

(This survey was released after the Mike Caldwell news broke, so the ‘coaching staff’ option means fans want more changes made to that area.)

Fourteen percent of fans wished for further coaching adjustments, 21% voted for front office altercations, and 38% are begging for both.

As for the confidence tracker -- 29% of Jaguars fans are confident in the direction of the team, a freefall from last week’s 76% mark.

Doug Pederson was asked on Monday if this season was a step back from last year.

“I feel fine moving forward, I just think how we finished the last six games of the year, how we did it, we had opportunities to win these games. It wasn’t like we were out of a lot of games down the stretch here. It’s that we lost the game more than them winning the game and that’s really been our season.

“When you take a look at the whole thing, I tried to communicate this with the team: everything is connected. Everything is connected; go back to Week 1 and Week 2, we played the Chiefs in Week 2 and I mentioned to the team how this could have playoff implications. Even in Week 2, then Week 3 you play the Texans. This could have playoff implications for the AFC South. You show up here today and it’s like, ‘Oh, that’s what he’s talking about.’ We can’t get to that point; it’s got to be that sense of urgency where everything matters.

“This is all part of teaching the team to win and preparing to win; focusing in on preparation and doing all those little things that as coaches, we talk a lot to our players about and we can’t just push it aside and say, ‘Hey, we got 12 more games or 15 more games; we still got a three-game lead in the division, it’s okay.’ It’s really not. You can’t let things slide, you can’t let things slip and that sense of urgency is important to the success we have. Especially down the stretch here, when everything began to matter.”

Top comments from Wednesday’s post:

Doug needs to admit in the mirror; Press is not Doug 2.0. Doug is an excellent tactician and play caller, like Andy Reid, Sean Payton, Sean Mcvay, Shanahan Jr. He should go with his forte.
There are very few on team and coaching and management not responsible for the team's melt down. Drafting the wrong talent and mistaken priorities in position emphasis has led to this point.
Fortner is not the Strong Center. Guard play is average to below average and Sherff has fallen off his past skill level. Build those three back and you also have some adequate backups (Shatley & Ezra Cleveland).
Need an Edge rusher / pass disrupter, NT and another dynamic LB who can play in space, pass and run defense, and occasional rush/blitz. Maybe another fast, bulky TE to complement Engram. That's rounds 1-4 easily. Use other players for trad or cap relief and use extra rounds 5-7 for trades.
Need to hire a better 0-line coach and D Coordinator who knows talent and can adapt schemes for blitz and run defense.
The question is.... will Baalke be useful in creating this plan or become a bowel obstruction???
Fire Baalke!
It's my fervent hope/wish that Doug is at the very least having talks with Frank Reich. Taylor is clueless as to how to get and keep an opposing defense on their heels. Worst ,it's stunting Trevor's creative growth, to be perfectly honest.
