Locker Room Buzz: Jacksonville Jaguars
By Michael DiRocco
DENVER -- Observed in the locker room after the Jacksonville Jaguars' 35-19 loss to the Denver Broncos:
Henne time: Quarterback Chad Henne quickly left the locker room after the game because his wife was in labor back in Jacksonville, Fla. Team spokesman Dan Edwards said he wasn’t sure whether Henne was taking a commercial flight, a private plane or just wanted to get to the team charter before everyone else.
Emotions: Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said he believed the players got caught up in the emotion of the game and it got the better of them at times. He included himself, when he was talking about the two-point conversion attempt just before halftime. "Maybe I got a little emotional," Bradley said. "I know I’ve got to make smart decisions that keep our team in position to earn a victory, but I just felt that at that time, that’s what we needed."
Aggressive: That was the key word in the locker room. The Jaguars' plan was to be very aggressive in every phase of the game, which is why they tried a fake punt from their own 26-yard line and went for it on fourth down three times. "Right now we’re going to do whatever we can to find a way to win," Maurice Jones-Drew said.
