JACKSONVILLE – The starters remain to be seen.
So, while who will start and how long starters will play remains unknown, Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said he does know what he wants from Thursday’s 2014 preseason finale:
A lot more of what he has seen so far – and a little better.
“It’s always tough for the fourth game, because you’re going into it saying, ‘All right, we’ve got the regular season next week,’” Bradley said Tuesday following a 45-minute practice at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields.
“I think for us it’s that discipline. I think we’ve come out with good energy every opportunity we’ve had, either at the stadium or away from the stadium or on the practice field. If we can go out and play with really good energy, good effort and good enthusiasm, I think that’s another piece.
“We’ve done it game after game, and when you do that it becomes real. I think that’s why this game is important, to add to that.”
Bradley, asked specifically about playing time for quarterbacks
“We’ll gather all the information and come up with a plan,” Bradley said.
The Jaguars will play the Atlanta Falcons in the 2014 preseason finale at EverBank Field Thursday at 6 p.m. Tuesday’s work focused on that game, meaning second- and third-team players got most of the repetitions. While Bradley said specifics of playing time for Thursday are unknown, starters and front-line players rarely play more than two series in the preseason finale.
“They (the reserves) are the ones who will primarily play,” Bradley said. “It was good. It accomplished a lot.”
