The Jacksonville Jaguars’ second day of voluntary mini-camp proved to be as good as the first. The team was up tempo, learning, and developing along the way the coaches desire. Head coach Gus Bradley called it a good day as the team begins to form under his leadership. “The big challenge was we thought we had good energy (Tuesday).The challenge for them was that’s past. It’s not about what yesterday could bring. It just put us in a position to have two good days in a row. That was it. I thought they did,” said Bradley.
The tempo was big for the Jaguars, especially on offense. OC Jedd Fisch talked about its importance:
Our tempo is really our core belief. We’re going to play fast. We’re going to emphasize that our guys are going to get on and off the field quickly. We’re going to be moving. We’re going to be running. We’re going to be coaching on the move. I think the guys have responded.
The Jaguars are looking to find their playmakers and help them lead the way toward a more successful season than last year’s disaster 2-14 season. During 2012 it looked like the Jaguars had no playmakers and there always seemed to be a player or two who looked lost on any given down. The cohesion and understanding begins now for the new Jaguars regime and as the tempo builds, so does the development of the team into a contender.
