Filed under Archive, Editorial, Sports

I don’t even know where to begin this week. In my last column I called for Jaguars’ head coach Gus Bradley to be fired even though there are others that disagreed with me. But after the way the Jaguars lost to the Houston Texans, it is tough for anyone to argue in favor of Bradley. Or is it? Are there some bright spots and signs of improvement on this team? Yes.
