While Dave Cadlwell and Gus Bradley came to Jacksonville in the same year, Bradley has been fired, yet Caldwell still has his job. It will be highly debated whether or not the Jaguars should continiue to employ Dave Caldwell as their General Manager, but it does appear that Caldwell will get another shot at finding the right head coach. Shad Khan had this to say regarding Caldwell moving foward:
(Dave Caldwell) will now be charged with exploring all options to hire the best head coach possible.
That sure makes it seem like Caldwell will get at least another season. Is it the right move for the team? Only time will tell, but Caldwell has been far from infallible as the Jaguars GM. He missed on essenitally the entire 2013 draft class, missed on his franchise QB, missed on the entire 2015 free agent class, and missed on his head coach. While Caldwell has had many blunders as the General Manager so far, he has done some good things too. Several of his mid to late round draft picks are shining. Telvin Smith, Aaron Colvin, Brandon Linder, and Yannick Ngakoue are all playing solid football despite being drafted in the third round or after. He's also seemingly hit on some quality free agents in 2016. Malik Jackson is the real deal, and it appears he will be a leader for years to come in Jacksonville. Caldwell was also able to completely turn around the Jaguars wide receiver group in one draft when he selected Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson in the same round, and aquired Allen Hurns as an undrafted free agent.
Can Caldwell find the right guy? Should he even be in charge of finding the right guy?
What do you think? Let us know it the comments below.
