The Indianapolis Colts and the Jacksonville Jaguars will finish up their 2013 NFL regular season on Sunday. The Colts are playing for NFL Playoffs placement, and the jaguars are playing for pride. For more info from the Jaguars’ side of things, I got in contact with Daniel Lago, editor from Black and Teal.com.
Naptown’s Finest. – The Jaguars have gone 4-3, after starting 0-8. How to you feel about the that this team didn’t trow in the towel, like the Houston Texans seemed to have done?
Black and Teal – The Jaguars barely put up a fight in their first 8 games, but since then they have been competitive in every contest. It really is a testament to head coach Gus Bradley for keeping this team focused and playing hard despite a horrific stretch of play before the bye week. This team is playing well above its talent level and that bodes well for the future when the team acquires some game changing players.
NF – What is your overview of the 2013 season for the Jaguars?
BT - I had very low expectations for the Jaguars heading into 2013 and they seemed to somehow be playing below those expectations in the first 8 weeks. After the bye week however, the team has played much better than I or anyone else expected. Regardless of the outcome in week 17, the 2013 season has to be considered a success and something to build off of heading into the 2014 NFL Draft.
Stay tuned to Naptown’s Finest, for the rest of my conversation with Daniel Lago, which will be posted soon.
