My biggest question is how does this impact Gabbert?

They Probably find a vet in FA. I'm sure they can find a better QB in the FA field. So many descent better QB will be out there ...

It puts Matt Barkley in a Jaguars Jersey next year.

Hasn't he decided not to declare already?

Talking about the draft after this one. Would not be surprised at all if they end up with #1 overall.

So they hired a guy who tried (and failed miserably) to throw the ball and ignore a good RB...

So they can have Gabbert throw the ball and ignore MJD? #1 overall, here Jacksonvil... LA comes.

MJD will get the ball a ton. Mularkey loves to run the football. He sort of stopped here though when Michael Turner decided to suck.

Dear lord...Mularkey and Gabbert working together to eliminate every last ounce of joy we poor, downtrodden sons of bitches can glean from an NFL game.

Never again will the NFL know excitement. It is the end of days!

The next coach of the Jags was ****** anyway with Gabbert for a year; couldn't have happened to a better guy than Mike Mularkey. This team will be absolutely atrocious next year and probably my leading contender for the #1 pick.

Interesting hire. I'm curious to see how he deals with Blaine Gabbert. Hopefully for Jaguars fans, this won't resemble his tenure as Buffalo's head coach.

Jacksonville should be interesting on offense, that's for sure.

At least they went with a guy that will just try and run MJD into the ground(which is about their only chance at mediocrity.

I would have taken a good look at Rick Dennison, offensive coordinator for the Texans. He comes from the same mold as Kubiak and Shanahan and that offensive zone blocking scheme I'm guessing. Personally, that's my favorite type of offense in the league and it's nice to see it revived in Houston after a few years hiatus. In any case, I think Dennison would have been nice. He also doesn't have the baggage of a failed head coaching stint.

I think Jacksonville would of been smarter to just run without a Head Coach for 2012 and try it again the following year.

I'm more interested to see who the OC and QB coach will be.
If Mularky's number 1 goal the next two seasons isn't to develop Gabbert, he's a piss poor HC.

Gabby looked like crap as a rookie, but he wasn't Jimmy Clausen bad. You still see if the guy can be developed.
Besides being antsy in the pocket, I think Blaine was making a huge adjustment to reading NFL defenses.
The game is still way too fast for him IMO, and add on top of that the difficulty in diagnosing coverages and you end up with a subpar rookie campaign.

I think more comfort with the offense and better WRs will take some of the ***** out of Gabby's game.

I think guys are in for a rude awakening if they think Matt Barkley is going to shred the NFL the minute he takes his first snap.

Tools wise he's Andy Dalton IMO with better pub.

I remember buddies of mine giving me a tough time when the Titans picked Locker instead of Gabbert during the draft. They never mentioned it again after about week 7 this year.

My thoughts exactly. I've seen a lot of Mularkey playcalling being that the Saints play the Falcons twice a year... I just don't see it if we are strictly based off of his track record as a OC.

The thing that Mularkey did was get a young QB primed and ready for success, his problem wasn't developing Matt Ryan, it was that he never kept developing him. He's now an anchor for Matt Ryan and the offense holding the entire team back. He can be just fine in J-ville and help Gabbert get going.

Not to mention he's not going to be the OC there, he's going to hire one, so he won't be calling the plays. He could be fine in the HC chair possibly too.

I am super glad he's gone, but I'm not hoping for failure in J-ville.

This hiring is not going over very well in Jacksonville. With a new owner in town, most were expecting a splashy hire. Instead, they get Mularkey.

Mularkey did make Kordell Stewart look like an NFL QB once upon a time...

who the team to decide to go to as OC and DC is more important to me

Sounds like he's hiring Clements, his OC in Buffalo, and that Mel Tucker is staying on as DC.

Also, Mike Mularkey was the runnerup to Jack Del Rio for the Jaguars job in 2003. They just hired the guy who couldn't beat out the coach they just fired last time they held a ******* interview.

This team is seriously dysfunctional.

they've never picked higher than 7 ever.

still the dumbest hire in the history of professional sports in the world of the history of the universe. stupid as hell.

I really wouldn't be surprised or disappointed with this hire. This is the least desirable head coaching spot in the entire league even among teams that don't currently have head coaching vacancies. Any good coach was going to recognize the lack of power they'd have there with Smith as GM and the investments that he's made in the team recently through the draft (a ****** QB, posluszny, MJD and a bunch of okay linemen is about all they have that a coach can count on to possibly be around for more than a couple years). This is Smith's team, not Mularkey's, and Mularkey's success will have more to do with the players that Smith can give him than Mularkey's ability to coach the team.

This team won't be succesful unless Smith can significantly increase the talent on the roster. If he can't do that the Jags are going to be rebuilding completely in a couple years when both Smith and Mularkey get fired. The only other possibility for this team becoming succesful that I can think of is if Mularkey can actually make something out of Gabbert and potentially take advantage of the Colts and Titans looking like they could both be "average" (being generous here for the Colts because of the uncertainty at QB) teams for at least the next couple years.

Clement is a good QB coach if its the packers one but IDK if he perform miracles. He did it once with Tommy Maddox but will see.

So the fact that they never have picked higher than 7 means there is no chance they pick higher than 7 next year? Good logic.

Thats not always the worst thing in the world. Mike Nolan beat out Jim Schwartz for the 49ers HC job in 2005, but one is clearly the better HC. If the 49ers hired Schwartz back in 09 it would have been a good move (not as good as Harbaugh IMO but i digress)

This brings up an interesting question. Pretend you're Tom Clements. You have two offers to become an OC, from the Raiders and Jaguars, respectively. You've worked with people in both organizations and know them very well. At one gig, you get Blaine Gabbert; at the other you get the three-headed monster of Campbell/Palmer/Pryor. Which offer is more/less appealing?

Raiders they can bring in a QB if they don't like any of them.

The Jags are set on Gabbert.

You don't think the Raiders are pretty much set with Carson Palmer? They just gave up a first and second round pick to get him. The Raiders are just as stuck, if not more stuck, with Palmer.

I'd say the Raiders. The three-headed monster isn't all that appealing itself, but there are a lot more weapons to work with overall on the Raiders. And Clements has worked with reclamation projects before at QB with some success.

next year they'll be better than this year at every position, and that was 5 wins. I'm not seeing 1st overall pick with a top 5 defense they have

oh yeah former steeler.

while i hated gabbert as anything but a second round prospect, and while i thought he was a terrible pick in the top 10, and while he played awful this last year....he really was throwing to nobodies (tiny ones at that) so i dont think its time to write him off completely. hes still so young

crazy how i go from despising him as a prospect to feeling bad for him as a player lol

Mularkey said he did extensive film study on Gabbert and concluded the lockout slowed his development.

Already toeing the Gene Smith company line.

BTW, Mularkey's son has been a scouting assistant for the Jaguars the last few years.

You'd think Jimmy Clausen would have gotten more of a chance in Carolina given how bad the rest of the team was, but both Gabbert and him were bottom of the league in almost every passing statistic.

We saw how that worked out for Clausen. The only thing going to save Gabbert might be a paper thin QB class.

The lock out gave him more time to think about all the scary pass rushers that could potentially hurt him.

We have a winner.

Think this hinders the Jags for anther couple of years. I feel for MJD, he's the best RB in the division and has been since '06. CJ's two great years don't cover for the down ones.
