The Jacksonville Jaguars have dropped their offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett following a 7- time losing streak.
After a 24-21 loss to the Bills in Buffalo on Sunday coach Doug Marrone made a statement on Twitter Monday saying, “We would like to thank Nathaniel for his hard work and dedication to the Jaguars organization, and we wish him and his family the best moving forward. These are always tough decisions, but as the head coach, I have to do what I think is best for this football team.”

It’s nothing personal it seems to be strictly business.
While the team isn’t living up to the hype around its mascot they are living up to their reputation for mediocrity. These NFL- ers are barely scoring 16 points a game during this slump. Their overall point average per game is down to 17.9. They are barely hanging on to their ranks as the 28th team in the league (points per game).
The quarterback, Blake Bortles, seems to be having a hard time under all this pressure.
Coach Marrone is expected to address the media at 2:45 p.m. Monday to elaborate on future plans and provisions for the team.
