The AFC South Offseason In A Nutshell

Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Despite the NFL playoffs still in action, all teams in the AFC South have already been busy making adjustments. Although some changes have been made, there still is plenty left to be desired for all the teams in the division. Just scratch the surface.

Starting from the cellar with the (3-13) Jacksonville Jaguars, they failed to reach expectations more than any other team in the NFL. The offense driven by Blake Bortles did not work for any fantasy owners who thought it was ‘the’ season for the Jags, but a bulk of their problems seem to be in the coaching staff. Doug Marrone has taken over as head coach and they simply have nowhere to go but up.

The (8-8) Indianapolis Colts have confidence in Quarterback Andrew Luck, but not in their offensive line that was nothing short of a dumpster fire. T.Y. Hilton has turned into one of the better wide receivers in the league, but being the lone weapon makes for a lopsided offense. Other than the line, the most lingering problem is also in their management and Chuck Pagano’s future again seems uncertain.

In Tennessee, the (9-7) Titans had their first winning season in a while and really drew some eyes later in the season. After losing Quarterback Marcus Mariota to a broken leg, his successful recovery is one of the few problems hanging around. More importantly, the Titans have two first-round picks in the upcoming draft and expectations are mounting in Nashville.

The division champion (9-7) Houston Texans seem to have just one big problem that has already begun to be sorted out with coaching changes. The offense is trying to figure out who will call the plays, how to call plays and also who will quarterback said plays. There don’t seem to be many question marks for the league’s top defense and they will get a boost with the return of Defensive Lineman J.J. Watt next season.
