    AThe Jacksonville OL coach was oft-criticized and fired. Hmmm.
    .

    And he collapsed on the sideline and was hospitalized at least once in 2005.

    Why would we even bother hiring a guy like that?

    Because the Jaguars didnt have a lot of talent on the offensive line to start with. Yet still managed to have a great running game and keep an immobile Byron Leftwich upright. He did a pretty decent job over there.

    Jack Del Rio and the GM in Jacksonville disagrees with you. His firing was the first thing Jacksonville did when their season ended.

    I see you're smiling! He was fired when Tice was thought to be headed for a head coaching job. With all the Head Coaching jobs floating around, it was thought Tice would get one, or at least an OFFENSIVE COORD position.

    If fact, the JAX papers stated their OL coach was fired without the JAGS having a plan to replace him.

    Well, you cant spin gold out of thin air. He never had a lot of talent to work with, and that offensive line did a nice job opening up some holes for Taylor.

    You seriously think Mike Tice was a legitimate candidate for a head coaching job? The only interview he got for HC was with the Jets, who also considered Joe Vitt [all due respect] for the position. The Jaguars must've had somebody in mind for the job; you don't just fire a coach without a plan to replace him.

    Re: Notes from KFFL

    The Jags were unhappy with Boudreau.

    With all the HC jobs and OFF-COORD positions floating around (still), it was conventional thinking to believe Tice with a winning record, would find himself a position of at a minimum an OFF COORD.
    Or even sit out the year.

    Let me put it this way, if you're happy with your Coach, your not out looking for replacements.
