In Jacksonville, Jack Del Rio’s future no longer seems like an open-ended question.
Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union writes that it “seems like only a matter of time” before Del Rio is let go. We’ve heard the same thing from Vito Stellino of the same paper; the only question is when Del Rio goes.
“How does the game feel when you have 21 points [at halftime] instead of 13?” Del Rio said. “I’m seeing those things and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Holy cow, you have to be ——ing me — it’s unbelievable.”
Jacksonville could be 1-7 heading into their bye with games against the Steelers, Ravens, and Texans coming up.
That Week Nine bye makes sense as when a “matter of time” turns into reality.
