Jacksonville Jaguars: Hugh Douglas

RTC: Gus Bradley's father dies

October, 22, 2013
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley did not travel with the team to London on Monday because he was with family members after his father died late Sunday night.

Defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker is serving as the team's interim head coach until Bradley rejoins the team, which is expected to be on Wednesday. The Jaguars (0-7) play the San Francisco 49ers (5-2) on Sunday at Wembley Stadium.

In an interview with the Florida Times-Union last summer, Bradley talked about the influence his father had on him and his five siblings.

"My dad demanded a certain way of how things should be done," Bradley said. "He really cared about how we performed, not only in school but athletics. He took great interest in what we did but rarely did we get home to him saying, ‘Hey, you did a great job.’ He drove us and would say we were never ‘there.’ But he wasn’t negative."

Roy James Bradley was 85 years old.

RTC: Jags aren't only winless team

September, 25, 2013
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's not lonely at the bottom of the NFL.

The Jaguars are not the league's only 0-3 team. In fact, there are five other teams that are also searching for their first victory of the season: The Steelers, Vikings, Giants, Redskins and Buccaneers. Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union breaks down all six teams and tells us how it can get better and worse for each.

He also predicts when each team will get its first victory. He has the Jaguars beating St. Louis in Week 5 and the Steelers being the last team to snap their losing streak by beating the Jets in Week 6.

Here are some other pieces of Jaguars content from around the web:

The T-U's Ryan O'Halloran breaks down which Jaguars coaches are in the press box and which ones operate from the sideline on game days. Both coordinators -- Jedd Fisch and Bob Babich -- are on the sideline, which is a change from last season. Quarterbacks coach Frank Scelfo is one of the few who do sit in the box.

How bad has the Jaguars' offense been through the first three games? The T-U's Ryan O'Halloran has listed where they rank in the NFL in 12 categories. They're no higher than 25th.

Former Jaguars defensive lineman Hugh Douglas has been arraigned in a Connecticut court on charges of third-degree assault and second-degree strangulation, according to WFSB-3 in Hartford, Conn.

Here's a roundup of items from this blog: the Jaguars' decision to start Blaine Gabbert over Chad Henne may not be popular but it is correct; it was another tough task finding the team's top 10 playmakers for my weekly list; the Jaguars are No. 32 in the ESPN NFL Power Rankings again.
