Del Rio's seat getting warmer

Earlier this week, Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union said he couldn’t rule out the possibility of Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio being in trouble if the team suffers its third straight blowout loss on Sunday, when they host the Colts.

The Jags have lost to the Chargers and the Eagles by 25 points each in back-to-back weeks.

Earlier today, Chris Mortensen of ESPN said that Del Rio could indeed be in danger of being fired, notwithstanding the Jags’ impressive ability to fill the non-tarped, non-premium seats at EverBank Field.

Del Rio likely won’t be counting on new quarterback Trent Edwards to help the cause today; per a league source, Edwards will be the No. 3 quarterback in his first game with the Jags.

In-house candidates to replace Del Rio include offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. 

We’d support defensive line coach Joe Cullen for the job, if only to see what he may decided to wear — or not wear — on the sidelines.

  1. One of these openings is going to Gruden. He told the NY Times this week that he almost passed up his ESPN job to move to Oregon to study the Ducks’ microwave spread-read offense. I’m sure that wasn’t just to be a better analyst.

  2. It is not uncommon for a fan base to want to run a head coach OR the starting QB out of town.
    Jacksonville wants both out. I have even heard on radio shows fans calling in to see if they can fire Wayne Weaver. Those fans are clueless, but it just goes to show that the fans want some pink slips handed out.

  3. His Name’s Del Rio
    And He Cannot Fill The Stands
    Got Crushed By Philip Rivers
    His Teams Headed For LA LA Land.

  4. I’m a huge fan of the Jags – season tix holder.
    I got a chuckle at the idea of Cullen coaching, and he and all the assistants are butt naked on the sidelines during gameday.
    with the motorola headgear, of course.

    wasn’t funny the first 17 times you posted it. I’ll give you a B for tenacity though.
