SAN JOSE, Calif. – A long, long week away is nearing an end.
And although the week has been extended and unusual, and although the task at the finish is difficult, Head Coach Gus Bradley said the week has been productive – particularly so.
And the Jaguars? They’re as prepared as possible.
Bradley, in his first season as the Jaguars’ head coach, said that if the idea behind staying in Fremont, Calif., and working out at San Jose State University, was to create a positive bonding experience, then consider the objective accomplished.
“I think that with our team, they’re coming together and we’re facing a lot of challenges,” Bradley said late this week as the Jaguars (0-2) finished preparing to play the Seattle Seahawks (2-0) at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Wash., Sunday at 4:25 p.m.
“There are some injuries, and the two travel dates on the West Coast . . . and I’m excited to see how our team handles this.”
The Jaguars do enter the Seahawks game with issues of injuries.
Lewis will miss the third consecutive game to start the season, while
The Jaguars have struggled in their first two games, losing by double digits to the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders. With the Seahawks unbeaten and considered by many a Super Bowl favorite, many consider the Seahawks overwhelming favorites Sunday.
Bradley said this week that’s not something he or the team are thinking much about as the weekend approached. Rather, Bradley said he likes how a young team is coming together, and how the players are handling the early stages of a building process.
“I think there’s growth taking place with our team right now,” Bradley said. “We all would like to have it happen faster, but I'm pleased with how it’s taking place right now.”
