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.
