The Jacksonville Jaguars ran into a buzzsaw named the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday and looked completely outmatched much of the game. Despite the beat down, there were some positives and Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley knows the team is still trying to find themselves and figure out what they do well.
"Coaches have to evaluate, players have to evaluate and we really have to find out what we're doing well," Bradley said in his post game press conference. "I know for you looking from the outside it might not look like there's much, but I know there's a lot that we can build on."
A lot of things went wrong for the Jaguars against the Seahawks and Bradley acknowledged that, even laying some of the blame on his own coaching staff because players don't seem to be getting the message down just yet.
"I think all sides can take blame in this," Bradley said. "As coaches I think we can find better ways to coach the techniques and principals so our players have a clear understanding. I don't know that they have a clear understanding yet. Some of the things they got yards on, even the quarterback keeper by Tavaris Jackson, a fall back principal that we use in that formation we didn't execute. So I think that's where the accountability has to be.
"This is your job, this is what you're supposed to do, now you've got to do it. And what you're asking is 'What happens if he doesn't, what are you going to do?' We've just got to do a better job of coaching them," Bradley continued. "If we have to shrink our package and go through the principals again and start small, than that's what we have to do."
The Jaguars can't do much, as far as replacing the players on the roster, but they can scale things back and try to make it simpler for the players they do have.
