Reaction from fans after the Jaguars' 42-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday:

The two defensive back coaches need to be replaced, and take D-Coordinator Mel Tucker with you. And they thought getting rid of Reggie Nelson would solve their problems. Let me guess ... Gerald Alexander re-signed for next week.
