The AFC South produced two playoff teams last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans. Both clubs actually went a few games deep into the postseason as well.
Jaguars: The Jags won the AFC Championship. However, I’m not impressed with either team, from an overall league standpoint. The AFC was not very good last season when you consider both the Colts and the Texans finished 4-12 and played most, if not all of 2017, without their star players. The Jaguars return their entire coaching staff intact for 2018 and that will give them a head start on both the Colts and Titans who made wholesale changes.
Titans: Tennessee cleaned house in their coaching department. Mike Vrabel takes over at the head coach helm. Mitt LaFluer is in at offensive coordinator and Dean Pees takes over the reins of defensive coordinator. That is a lot of changes for one team in one season and we’ll see how long it takes this team to mesh and get the chemistry and styles right. Quarterback Marcus Marriotta has been hit and miss so far in his career. He has certainly not lived up to his hype coming out of college. Sure, there have been flashes of brilliance from the young signal-caller, but he has to get more consistent in his passing game, which would really give balance to an already strong running game.
