Been calling for it all year. Hopefully this lights a fire under Jerry Gray as well.
I brought this up in the game thread that the offense was outcoached. They have the personel to be an amazing hurry-up offense and instead week after week we see Craig Stevens and Taylor Thompson on the field as much as Jared Cook and Kenny Britt.... Chris Palmer is too old be a playcaller in the modern NFL where the rules are built around the passing game. This is what the Titans get for going with a guy that has been a coach at what 11/12 different teams?

Was there a replacement named?
They gave it to Loggains, the QB coach. Not sure if it's an interim position or if he's the permanent hire but seeing that he was under Palmers system, it may be more of the same.
He has been with the franchise for many years before palmer joined...It should and will def be a different offense

This is a huge step in the right direction. They need a passing minded playcaller who can draw up creative ways to make use of all the weapons on this team. They spent a first round pick on another receiver and I hardly ever see them find creative ways to get Wright the ball. With Wright, Washington, Britt, Cook and CJ to utilize in the passing game and an athletic quarterback with a rocket arm, there's no reason why this offense should have sputtered the way it has this year.
I admit I'm not familiar with the QB coach, but hopefully he can help Locker's game develop a little bit more until they find another OC in the offseason.
Good news! Should see much more of Cook in the passing game, Britt too. I think this will do nothing but keep CJ's performance progressing as well. I still think Gray gets canned after the season. Too much talent on both sides of the ball to be as inconsistent as they are. If Loggains proves himself , fine. But I hope they actually find a real OC in the offseason, not an old has been.
He is a Mike Heimerdinger guy and his offense will resemble that so expect more playaction and down the field passing. He also is gonna give Jack Locker room to make changes at the line something that Palmer was against according to what Ive read online.
This is a move that the players wanted as well.
Thank God! An offense with this much potential should not be stifled by the Jaguars. -_-
Apparently Loggains is very highly regarded within the organization. Knowing Bud, I'd wager that he's the new OC, not just an interim guy.
Well we are forced to give him the benefit of the doubt as it stands to see how he makes adjustments to the offense. Defensively speaking, thats a whole new kettle of fish.
