Prowling The Web: Jacksonville Jaguars would accomplish nothing by firing Gus Bradley


The Jacksonville Jaguars’ fans are rising up in support of finding a new head coach, but some cooler heads may be thinking otherwise.

Jaguars would accomplish nothing by firing Gus Bradley after 1-5 start – CBS Sports

"There is talk in Jacksonville, and even some written word on the subject, that Jaguarscoach Gus Bradley should be fired. He is 8-30 in his career, and the Jaguars have lost four consecutive games to fall to 1-5. Losing 31-20 at home to the Texans, a team that came into Sunday’s game with one victory, isn’t a good way for Bradley to head to London.Firing him now, though, solves nothing. He should finish out the season and see where his young team goes. This was a complete overhaul of the roster three years ago. Now the offense looks to be filled with young talent, but the defense has issues."

Bryan Walters emerging as a slot option for Jaguars – Rant Sports

"With Marqise Lee and Rashad Greene dealing with injuries, Walters has seen increased action in recent weeks and has taken advantage. He had the best game of his career in last Sunday’s loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, posting a career-high in receptions, targets and yards. He now has 10 receptions for 136 yards on the season and is the team’s primary option out of the slot.The road to get to this point has not been an easy one for Walters. He was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the San Diego Chargers in 2010. After a couple of years bouncing between the practice squad and active roster, Walters was released in 2012 and had a brief stint with the Minnesota Vikings. He signed with the Seattle Seahawks in 2013 and spent time on their practice squad and active roster. In total, he has been cut 10 times in his six-year career."

Jacksonville Jaguars showing little signs of progress after Week 6 – Bleacher Report

"Last week, it was a matter of minutes in which the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scored 18 points and broke the game open. This week was a similar story, with the Texans scoring 21 points in less than four minutes thanks to poor defense and an interception returned for a touchdown.It’s become apparent that this team isn’t better at winning games than last season, despite improved performances from the offense and new, important talent on the defense. The team isn’t “built” yet, but it’s certainly not 1-5 quality either."
