Bradley says Jaguars’ self-assessment provided “good feedback”

AP

To the rest of us, the Jaguars may look terrible. But from within, head coach Gus Bradley says the Jaguars see things they can feel good about.

Bradley said the Jaguars like to start their week with meetings called “Tell the Truth Mondays,” and this week’s candid meeting was all about the self-assessment that the team did during the bye week. According to Bradley, the Jaguars see things they can feel positive about.

It was very good,” Bradley said, via the team’s website. “We had good feedback from the team.”

Yeah, I’m sure the Jaguars got real good feedback on the state of their team. Just like the writers of Homeland are getting good feedback about all the Dana Brody scenes this season.

It’s hard to imagine how a team that’s 0-8 and has lost all eight games by double-digit margins could have anything to feel good about, but Bradley says he is seeing improvement.

“The last four games offensively we’re seeing better perfection both in the run game and the pass game,” he said. “Those things are good and we want to keep building on those areas. We were also telling the truth as far as some of the things that have affected us and why defensively we’ve taken a little bit of a drop in our performance. There are many things.”

It’s hard to blame Bradley for wanting to accentuate the positive. But whatever good things Bradley is seeing, they’re not translating to playing competitive football on Sundays.

  1. Let’s see, last four games the passing game has been much improved…what was different about the last four games compared to the first four in terms of passing?

    Oh yeah, the now banned-for-the-season Justin Blackmon was playing. Time for regression…

    I am a Jaguars fan, and this season cannot end quickly enough for me.

  2. The NFL is simple: If you have a QB you win games, if you don’t, you don’t.

    The decision to not get Tebow was absolutely the right decision– he would have led the Jags to an 8-8 season and they’d still not have their QB of the future. Now they will have a top 2 pick and will likely get a pretty good QB for the next decade.

  3. I like Bradley. He’s a players coach. If the Jags can get a real, franchise qb, and he can fill a few holes over the next couple seasons, he can definitely coach them up. I honestly wouldn’t hold this season against him when he doens’t have anything to work with. Give him a chance to create something.

  4. Well, they’ve certainly got nowhere to go but up. I think, if they’re given some time and the organization has some stability and continuity, after a couple more drafts, we’ll see a much better team. But like dalcow4 said above, everything hinges upon their ability to secure/develop a franchise QB within the next 2 years or nothing else they do will matter.

  5. Having the first overall pick doesn’t guarantee a franchise quarterback. Raiders fans know this very well and the Chargers can relate with the No.2 overall pick in Leaf as well. Blaine Gabbert was a top 10 pick and he’s on the express train to Bustville… not the one where Dolly Parton is the mayor.

  6. Two years ago, the 0 and 13 Colts played my Titans and … WON. Then last season, the Jaguars who finished 2-14 had one of their wins against the Titans.

    Guess who the Jags play next? Yep.

    To say this is a “trap game” for the Titans doesn’t even begin to describe how serious this is for them and their playoff aspirations.

    … Blaine Gabbert was a top 10 pick and he’s on the express train to Bustville… not the one where Dolly Parton is the mayor.

    Bro, Gabbert arrived in Bustville 2 years ago. He’s already built a mansion and is running for city council.

  8. Gus was in Seattle and watched PC/JS overhaul a full roster that was in the dumps. I see each week the Jags are picking up young prospects on the waiver wire, acquired draft picks for players they weren’t going to keep.

    A rebuild means it gets worse before it gets better.

    Did he really use the word “perfection”

    ________________________

    Not only did he, but he said “better perfection”, which in and of itself is impossible

    Bradley sets the bar low, he sets it on the ground

    I think it’s the bar that James Cameron had to get in that episode of Southpark

    James Cameron doesn’t do what James Cameron does for James Cameron. James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is James Cameron

    It’s never automatic, that’s for sure, but when they picked Gabbert it was simply a down year for QBs (outside of Cam) and they figured they had to take the chance.

    You just hope that when your team has enough of a horrible year that it’s a year with QBs. Some years, Andrew Luck and RG III are sitting there, other years, it’s Jimmy Clausen and Tim Tebow.
