Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley said Monday he planned to be more hands-on, emphasizing attention to detail among his players this week in the aftermath of Sunday’s 38-31 loss to Tampa Bay.
"That part, they should always feel that in me,” Bradley said, per the the team’s official website. “Is it going to be stronger? Yeah, they might feel it a little bit more in that context. Maybe I haven’t been as strong or demonstrative on the field as I need to.”
While Bradley said the team may feel his presence more at practice, he also reiterated that turning around Jacksonville’s 1-4 start will largely depend on individual improvement from the players.

"I’m hoping they solve it; I’m really putting it on them,” Bradley said. “These conversations that we have I want to shock them, like I said (Sunday) night, for them to take personal responsibility and I’m going to hold them accountable for that. I’m going to watch them closely and make sure they take it upon themselves. This group is special, they take personal responsibility. If they’re not, we’ll ensure that they do and we’ll hold them accountable for it.”
