Re: 2012 Jacksonville Jaguars
Well, the Jags have essentially finalized their coaching staff. They kept the big names on the defensive side. Mel Tucker stays on as Defensive Coordinator. The great debate about Mel in town was how much of the big improvement on defense was due to him. They had significantly spent money in free agency to improve the defense. But they did perform and the players loved him so he is back.
He interviewed for DC at at least one spot (Vikings). Mel is not a very dynamic speaker. I think that will hurt him in the future.
The biggest news to happen recently is the Jags held a free pep rally at Everbank field. About 7,000 showed up. Shad Khan had indicated that he was going to spend to put a winner on the field.
When pressed for specifics, Khan said they would spend to the TOP of the spending cap. Considering that the Jags were among the teams with the most room left to get to the minimum, it would appear the Jags are going to really open the pocket book.
