Jaguars to Sit Down with Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan About Coaching Job

Kyle Shanahan

The Jaguars are tentatively set to interview Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan on Friday, Albert Breer of MMQB reports.

The Jaguars have already interviewed former Giants coach Tom Coughlin.

They are expected to be looking at offensive minded head coaches to replace Gus Bradley.

Jaguars Fire Head Coach Gus Bradley After Teams’ 9th Straight Loss

Gus Bradley

This was supposed to be the season the Jacksonville Jaguars challenged in the AFC South, but now with two games left in another awful campaign, they have just canned their head coach.

The team announced they fired coach Gus Bradley, just after the team lost another tough game, 21-20 to the Houston Texans after they appeared to be in control all afternoon.

Bradley, who was supposed to be an up and coming coach who would take the team to the next level, leaves the organization with the second-worst winning percentage of any NFL head coach who has coached at least 50 games.

Owner Shad Khan canned Bradley after the Jags lost their 9th straight game, which is the most in franchise history in a single season.

GM Dave Caldwell will hold news conference on Monday afternoon to announce an interim coach for the season’s final two games. It’s likely to be offensive line coach Doug Marrone or defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker.

“I thanked Gus Bradley today for his commitment to the Jacksonville Jaguars over the past four seasons,” owner Shad Khan said in a statement. “As anyone close to our team knows, Gus gave his staff and players literally everything he had. Our players competed for Gus and I know they have great respect for him, as do I.

“Gus also represented the Jaguars, the Jacksonville community and the NFL in nothing less than a first-class manner as our head coach. That counts for a lot. It is unfortunately evident that we must make a change. I thought it would be best to do it immediately after today’s result so Gus can step away, relax and regroup with his family during the Christmas and holiday season.”

Bradley was 14-48 (.226) in three-plus seasons with the Jaguars. The only coach with a worse winning percentage is Bert Bell (.190), who also was the Philadelphia Eagles’ owner.

Jaguars Woeful Season Continues; Fall to Vikings at Home 25-16

Minnesota Vikings v Jacksonville Jaguars

Matt Asiata scored on a short touchdown run, Kai Forbath kicked four field goals and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 25-16 on Sunday, winning for just the second time in nine weeks.

Asiata had a chance to score three times, but he was stopped on a fourth-and-goal run in the second quarter and fumbled at the goal line in the fourth.

Those mistakes hardly hurt against the hapless Jaguars (2-11), who dropped their eighth consecutive game and fell to 0-6 at EverBank Field this season.

Minnesota (7-6) hadn’t won on the road since Sept. 25 at Carolina. A loss to the Jaguars would have weakened their playoff chances.

What if the Jaguars Logo Was Made in the Likeness of President Elect Donald Trump?

Donald Trump

Like it or not, next month Donald Trump will be the new President of the United States, and one thing that can’t be denied is it’s going to be an interesting four years in our country.

There’s been plenty of fun poked at the President elect, and one site – Uproxx, has taken it upon themselves to design every NFL logo in the make of our President elect.

Check out what they think the logo of the Jaguars will look like made in the likeness of Trump!


Jaguars QB Blake Bortles Talks About the Nightmare 2016 Has Become

Blake Bortles

While the entire Jaguars season has been a nightmare for fans and the team, one player who spoke about it after the 20-10 loss to the Broncos Sunday was quarterback Blake Bortles.

After it looked like last season Bortles was turning the corner into being a top flight NFL quarterback, this season he’s been downright bad, throwing 15 picks, three of which have gone the other way for scores, like Sunday against Denver.

“It’s the biggest nightmare possible,” Bortles said after Sunday’s 20-10 loss to Denver in which he committed three turnovers. “But what are you going to do about it? You can’t sit there in a corner and pout. You can’t blame people. You can’t feel sorry for yourself because I think all that’s going to do is affect the way I play.”

“You can’t press,” Bortles said. “I think I was doing some of that early in the season and that didn’t go well. You’ve got to stay true to what we do and what we believe in and go through the process. For me, it’s obviously still trying to take care of the ball. All you can do is put your head down and continue to play as hard as you can and prepare each week.”

“It’s been tough, but something that’s cool about it is you get 16 opportunities, so we’ve got four more chances,” Bortles said. “Obviously, the first 12 didn’t go the way we wanted to by any means, personally or as an offense or as a team. I think everybody knows that and understands it. You’ve got four more chances and then a bunch of time off, so let’s go try and play as well as we possibly can for four games and see what happens.”

Jaguars Stumble at Home Again; Fall to 2-10 After 20-10 Loss to Broncos


With a rookie quarterback and arguably the NFL’s best defense, the Denver Broncos were content to play conservatively at Jacksonville.

It was the perfect formula against the self-destructing Jaguars.

Bradley Roby returned an interception 51 yards for a touchdown, and the defending Super Bowl champions beat the mistake-prone Jaguars 20-10 on Sunday and gained ground in the AFC playoff picture.

Roby picked off Blake Bortles’ wobbler across the middle in the third quarter — star linebacker Von Miller hit Bortles as he released the ball — and went untouched the other way. It was one of three turnovers for Denver’s defense.

“They were exceptional,” Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said.

Jaguars Early Lead Not Enough; Fall to Bills in Buffalo 28-21

Jacksonville Jaguars v Buffalo Bills

LeSean McCoy scored twice, including a career-best 75-yard run, and the Bills won their second in a row by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-21 on Sunday.

Tyrod Taylor’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter with 10:46 remaining put the Bills ahead for good during a second half in which the teams traded the lead five times. Taylor also scored on a 7-yard run in helping to keep Buffalo in the playoff hunt.

The Bills (6-5) won for the second straight week when trailing at halftime after doing so just once last season.

Buffalo trailed the Jaguars 7-6 after two quarters on Sunday, and overcame a two-point deficit in a 16-12 win at Cincinnati last week.
