I’m not sure how this took so long to get out in the open but it is absolutely hysterical.The Jags are a mess. They put their playbooks on some players iPads and then forgot to wipe them before player went to another team.— Plato Lombardi (@NFLosophy) December 23, 2012Because the Jags didn’t remotely delete the playbooks off of iPads, other teams had access to it when the player went to another team.— Plato Lombardi (@NFLosophy) December 23, 2012The worst part…the playbook was updated with practice film. Teams could see how the Jags were preparing for them.— Plato Lombardi (@NFLosophy) December 23, 2012FWIW, the Jags fixed the iPad playbook problem this offseason when they hired a coach who enjoyed the benefits of the screw up last year.— Plato Lombardi (@NFLosophy) December 23, 2012So their current Head Coach Mike Mularkey knew about the problem when he took the job this past off-season, because the Atlanta Falcons had an old Jaguars player on their roster when they faced off against Jacksonville December 15th, 2011.  Not that this would have been a huge deal, because a new coaching staff would mean new playbooks.That being said, this is hysterical, and it shows exactly why they’re such an inept franchise.  How can you forget to get a players playbook back, or in this case to make sure you delete the program from his iPad?  Just brutal.  I’m sure this was only part of the reason they lost to Atlanta 41-14.I will say this though, having your iPad update with practice film and an updated gameplan each week is awesome.  I wonder how many teams in the NFL are currently using a similar program?  I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before all of them are using it, if they aren’t already.H/T: SBnation
