RTC: Khan's support means a lot
By Michael DiRocco
During an interview in London last week, Jaguars owner Shad Khan pledged unequivocal support for head coach Gus Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell.
Those words meant a lot to both men, writes Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
"It's unbelievable," Bradley said. "When you have support like that from the owner and [Caldwell] it allows you to stay true."
The Jaguars (0-8) are in the beginning of a complete franchise overhaul and need a little more work than maybe Bradley or Caldwell anticipated, so it was important for them to hear Khan say he's behind their plan.
"It just gives you more strength," Bradley said.

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew went '90s old school for his Halloween costume. Remember Homey D. Clown from "In Living Color"?
Are the Jaguars worse than the 2008 Detroit Lions? Depends on who you ask. Las Vegas bookmakers seem to think so, according to Grantland's R.J. Bell.
