RTC: Evaluation begins early

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars still have four more games until their bye week, but the normal evaluation a coaching staff conducts during the break can't wait.

It has to be done now.

The Jaguars have played so poorly during their first four games of the season that coach Gus Bradley said his staff has already begun looking at personnel and schemes to see what changes need to be made, writes Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

"I’d say there’s a greater sense to do it now because, generally, you do that at the bye week when you look at all your stats and you scout yourself and see," Bradley said Monday. "But we’re trying to figure those things out now. It may not be as in-depth as bye-week study, but we still have to take a look at it."
