The coaching staff nearly complete, Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell and HC Gus Bradley have started looking at the Jaguars’ 2012 game video. Caldwell has watched all 16 games and individual cut-ups of players who entered the starting lineup late in the year.
“I’m actually encouraged by what I’ve seen so far,” Caldwell said. “I kind of went in without any preconceived ideas of the team and just graded each player individually and how they’re going to fit into our schemes. … On defense, they played hard, aggressive and physical. On offense, there is some talent there. Obviously, not having [Maurice Jones-Drew] hurt the team but Marcedes Lewis is a very good tight end and the offensive line has a chance to be solid.”
The biggest question the Jaguars need to address is QB. The offense was respectable once Chad Henne took over, but the team has invested a lot on Blaine Gabbert. The new regime has no ties with Gabbert, so now is a good time to make a clean break.
