Coming off an embarrassing loss that put him firmly on the hot seat, Gus Bradley needs to show up and secure a home win this week against the Ravens to buy more time.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are only 2 games into the 2016 regular season but their backs are firmly against the wall. After a valiant effort in a game they probably should have won against Green Bay, the Jaguars flew to San Diego and got their doors blown off by a Chargers team riddled with injuries to key players.

The Jaguars have historically been terrible against Philip Rivers under Gus Bradley, but it doesn’t excuse such a pathetic effort in what is a make or break year for this coaching staff. Now they have to dust themselves off and prepare themselves to face John Harbaugh and a Baltimore Ravens squad that is anxious to make up for last year’s loss.
Blake Bortles has been off for the most part over the first two weeks and he’s failed to get Allen Robinson – the best player on the team – involved early on. While the quarterback has to shoulder some of the blame, it’s hard not to be disappointed with how this revamped defense has looked as well. A lot of people need to do better in order for the Jaguars to recover.
So what’s going to actually happen this Sunday when the Jaguars host the Ravens? Are they going to bounce back, or is this going to be another nail in Gus Bradley’s coffin? Click ahead to see my “rock solid” predictions:
