Where do the Jacksonville Jaguars go from here?

That's the question asked by Gene Frenette of The Florida Times-Union in today's article of the day.

With the offense floundering beyond what anyone could have imagined, the Jaguars have gone out and embarrassed themselves and the city with three consecutive home losses.

Vito Stellino of The Florida Times-Union says Shad Khan promised to "stay the course" Sunday, but he said those words before the 41-3 wipeout.

There are no fixes coming this season, and it's clear a complete roster overhaul is needed. At this rate, there's no sane argument to be made for keeping Gene Smith on as general manager.

Whether or not there are sweeping changes remains to be seen, but for the time being, everyone in Jacksonville is left wondering where it all went wrong and how they can possibly fix it.
