Del Rio’s Job… Safe?

I thought this was an odd article concerning Jack Del Rio’s status as the Jaguars’ head coach in 2012, but the poll results are even more surprising.

“I’ve explained before that Del Rio could easily get a “free pass” from playing Blaine Gabbert for part of the season in 2011, but wanting to sit him for the entire 2011 season would seem like Del Rio already knows he’ll be back in 2012. Earlier in the year Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver made the comment that if the Jaguars weren’t in the playoffs in 2011 there would be coach changes, but that was after he was peppered with questions from reporters after a press conference in which he announced Del Rio would be back for 2011. A few months later, Weaver backed off those comments stating he’d simply like to be “competing for the playoffs”.”
