Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley has always been thought of as a player-friendly coach (probably a little too friendly) who doesn’t show the kind of emotion after poor performances that we think he should.
And while Bradley may never have that fiery postgame speech after a loss, but the players see a different coach at times.
According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Gus ripped into the players at halftime of a game where they were trailing 10-0.
Gus lit into players at halftime, telling them to "Grow up!" ... Beachum: "I thought he was going to have a heart attack." #Jaguars— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) October 16, 2016
I’ve wanted to see Gus show a little bit more frustration with the team and with individual performances after losses, but it’s just not how he does things. And that’s probably for the best — throwing a guy under the bus, no matter who he is, will have ripple effects with other players in that locker room. But it’s good to see he’s going to go in on his guys when they suck as bad as they did in the first half of today’s game against the Chicago Bears.
