Jaguars staying motivated, despite their record
Jacksonville- The Jags' confidence has been optimistic in the locker room, despite their 1-6 record.
This week, the Jaguars are going into their bye week and have a lot to improve on for the second half of the season. Even though the Jaguars are sitting with a 1-6 record, they are still fighting each down, each game, and still have the confidence to never look back at the past.
Jaguars' head coach Doug Marrone have encouraged his players to go out there and play their game, limit their mistakes, and always find something they need to improve on. Marone wants to worry about the second half of the season and get back to playing Jaguars' football.
"Let’s play at our best, let’s coach at our best, and let’s coach each game like it’s the most important game in the world. I know that’s cliché because every game is, but I also have a level of excitement too for me thinking [of] it that way because if I keep going back and going, ‘Oh s#$%, we should’ve done this or hey we’re 1-6 and we’re this,’ I mean that’s going to get you down," said Marrone.
"There’s no doubt about it. I’m not wired the same as a lot of people. I think you guys know me for a long time now, so I’m going to be able to block that out of my mind and go forward and be the best I can be for the coaches and the players.”
When Jacksonville comes off their bye, they will have a tough schedule. They play the Packers, Steelers, Browns, Vikings, Titans, Ravens, Bears, and finish the season out playing the Colts. If the Jaguars can play non-mistake football, they may have a chance to compete and pull the upset off on some of these teams in the second half of the season.
