Titans vs Jaguars: 7 Questions with Black and Teal Editor Daniel Lago
Joshua: Two years have gone since Del Rio was fired. In hindsight, do you or many Jaguars fans wish that the franchise would’ve stayed loyal to him?

Daniel: In retrospect Jack Del Rio wasn’t the entire problem, but he needed to go. He was dealt a terrible roster by arguably the worst general manager in the history in the NFL in Gene Smith. Still, Del Rio’s message was falling on deaf ears and the Jaguars needed to completely overhaul the front office and coaching staff. Del Rio being the head coach would not have changed the fate of the 2013 Jaguars.
