Calling for Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley’s job has almost become an annual ritual for Jags fans and it has started early in 2016.
With a recent Big Cat Country poll netting over 75 percent of respondents in favor of firing Gus Bradley either at the bye week or before (the number may have been higher had they made the “before” option clear initially) the fire Gus Bradley movement has gotten off to an early start.
It isn’t just BCC that’s getting in on the action. Jaguars Twitter is responding to the Week 2 beatdown of the Jacksonville Jaguars at the hands of the San Diego Chargers in a big way.
All in all, the 2016 season hasn’t been great thus far for Gus Bradley. It’s been the kind of season with huge expectations for an unproven team under an unsuccessful head coach and he probably can’t deliver.
The loss to the Chargers showed that the Jacksonville Jaguars are simply not prepared enough by the current coaching staff to handle the quick change from a close loss to getting ready for the next week. It was an embarrassment for the team in a game that should have been close on paper and on the field.
Beating the Chargers isn’t necessarily difficult and plenty of teams do it. The Jags couldn’t do it this year or last. It’s been the Philip Rivers show every outing and the Jags have shown no response to that.
So far, it looks like Bradley is going to limp through 2016 and, maybe, not make it to the end. Hopefully we see the Jags rebound, but it’s clear that he’s lost the faith of much of the fan base.
