Gus Bradley has 18/1 odds to win NFL Coach of the Year in 2016

There are only eight NFL coaches with better odds to win Coach of the Year. God help us all.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley has better odds to win NFL Coach of the Year than two-thirds of the league.

The Bovada oddsmakers have released their list and while Bruce Arians (deservedly) tops the list, Gus Bradley is conspicuously tied for ninth with Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio... and my only question is, "Why?" What has Bradley done that would make you think Year 4 is the one that turns it around? And even if it does turn around for the Jaguars, how is it Bradley's doing? His specialty is defense and that unit was worse in 2015 than it was when he got here in 2013.
