Now the Jaguars have to find someone willing to take over a flawed roster with a massive question mark at quarterback. Bill Barnwell over at ESPN took some time discuss Bradleys dismissal, juxtaposing the patience shown in Jacksonville to the similar rebuild performed in Oakland. Clearly the results have been very different , inciting Barnwell to say Patience is a virtue sometimes. The Jaguars took a little bit of criticism for bringing back coach Gus Bradley this season after going 12-36 during his first three years at the helm, but the Jags seemed to make headway last year by improving from 3-13 to 5-11. With Blake Bortles expected to improve, it appeared Jacksonville might have been smart to grant Bradley a fourth season in charge. It didnt work out. Bradley was fired after that heartbreaking loss to the Texans on Sunday amid a 2-12 season. Ironically, while the offense collapsed, Bradley finally delivered on the promise he came over with from Seattle and began to develop a talented young defense in Jacksonville. The Jags were 15th in defensive DVOA heading into the week, with exceptional Jacksonville draftees Jalen Ramsey and Telvin Smith each picking Osweiler off during the first half. Ramsey, in particular, was exceptional against DeAndre Hopkins before Hopkins began to get his in the second half. I wouldnt really call itirony that the defense is finally playing well the Jaguars have some legitimate talent on that side of the ball now. If anything, its an indictment on Bradley that he and his scheme need transcendent talent to field a respectable defense. Bradley failed to adjust over his first three seasons (he also did at times this year), but I dont think he deserves that much credit for FINALLY putting together an average unit on the defensive side. Now the focus turns on David Caldwell, who we know will be back and conducting the head coach search.
