Trevor Lawrence is great, but the Jacksonville Jaguars were literally a clown show

In the craziest game the NFL has seen since 28-3, the toothless Jacksonville Jaguars put on a clown show vs. the Indianapolis Colts. As it turns out, all of Duval got the last laugh. Jacksonville may have improved to 3-14 on the year by beating a division rival for the seventh time in a row at home, but this team stinks. They are now about to hire their third head coach in as many seasons.

This is all about cleaning up the mess Urban Meyer created. Owner Shahid Khan being committed to Trent Baalke as the team’s general manager could prevent the best candidates from going to North Florida. Unfortunately, this organization is scraping along at rock bottom, but the right head coach can become a legend if he turns this thing around with Trevor Lawrence as his quarterback.

AFC. Miami Dolphins. player. 59. Scouting Report. East. 5. Pick Analysis

The Miami Dolphins firing Brian Flores was the biggest shocker by far and away

Make it make sense. The Miami Dolphins firing head coach Brian Flores, but retaining general manager Chris Grier is beyond head-scratching. Miami overachieved in his first season on the job and were essentially one game away from making the AFC playoffs in his last two years. This is a prime example why the Dolphins have not done much of anything at all since Dan Marino retired.

Ultimately, whoever Miami hires will have to embrace the chaos that is this franchise. The Dolphins may have more draft picks than god, but the only thing that matters is what Flores’ successor thinks of Tua Tagovailoa. The second-year pro out of Alabama did make great strides in the second half of the season, but year three is beyond critical for his overall NFL trajectory.

With these two jobs, it is all about how a candidate views a Floridian NFL organization in chaos.
