Gus Bradley has worst head coaching record of modern NFL

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars were blown out by the San Diego Chargers on Sunday to the tune of 38-14 in a game that wasn't nearly as close as the final score would indicate, moving the Jaguars to 0-2 on the season. The loss also pushed Gus Bradley's overall head coaching record to 12-38, which now qualifies him for the worst head coaching record through 50 games in the modern NFL era, and probably technically the worst of all time.

While September isn't over yet, during Bradley's tenure the Jaguars have just one win in total in the month of September in his four years as head coach. The loss on Sunday, which was the 38th loss in Bradley's tenure, doesn't necessarily mean the 2016 season is over, but it certainly makes the team's chances of making the NFL playoffs and even having a winning record exponentially worse.

While one could argue that the first two seasons of Gus Bradley as a head coach should have an asterisk, because he was hired to take over a football team that was completely gutted and built from the ground up, you could counter that argument pretty easily pointing at a few games over the past two seasons; including the 38-14 drubbing against the Chargers on Sunday. It was eerily similar to the beat down Washington handed to the Jaguars in 2014. Or the beating the Jaguars took from the Seattle Seahawks in 2013. Or...

The reality is, Sunday's loss felt no different than any of the other bad losses in the Gus Bradley era, except it happened in Year 4.
