One wonders why Gus Bradley didn’t think of it sooner. The elated Jacksonville Jaguars head coach said after his teams’ unexpected win Sunday, “It kind of just came to me all of a sudden around 10 o’clock this morning after watching some game film for the third or fourth time. Our chances of winning are much better if we don’t use a quarterback. At all. So I just sent them home.”
“It’s definitely exciting for us. We treated this week one game at a time and kind of like a new season. We are really excited for Gus.”, Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne said when we tracked him down at the Jacksonville Home Depot, his cart filled with several bags of no-float mulch.
“To have the ability to stay the course, stay true to who we are and come out and execute the way we did is an awesome deal and an awesome feeling for our guys.”, Blaine Gabbert added from a local area Best Buy, “I’m fairly certain this Kindle Fire HD would work for me, but that Retina iPad mini sounds really good too. I just wish it was out already.”
Ricky Stanzi, the third string quarterback was equally vocal. “Did we play this week?”, seemingly undistracted from his test drive of the new Nissan Altima.
While the Jaguars will no doubt still have a high pick in the 2014 draft, it’s now widely expected they will not select a quarterback. In any round. Ever again.
