Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley doesn't remember calling important timeout

The Jacksonville Jaguars are stumbling through their worst season in the franchise's history. Their current record is 2-9 and it doesn't look like it's going to get any better, with games against the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings coming up.  

After another disappointing display against the Buffalo Bills, fans and the media alike are turning to head coach Gus Bradley for answers. Unfortunately, he doesn't have them, quite literally. 

When asked about a timeout the Jaguars took around one minute before halftime at the weekend, Bradley seemed completely confused.

After the reporter clarifies the question a number of times, asking why they did call a timeout, the head coach responds.

"Why didn't we call a timeout? There was about 40 seconds left and we talked about calling a timeout to get the ball back but we decided not to do it."

However, play-by-play reporting from the game confirms that the Jaguars did call a stoppage with around one minute remaining in the second quarter. 

One of the head coaches main jobs is to manage the clock and call effective timeouts, so the fact that Bradley seems to have completely forgotten he made one and didn't know why is very concerning.

To add to the Jaguars troubles, their head coach now boasts the worst career record of all time among coaches with at least 59 games of experience.  

With just four games left of the regular season, Jacksonville will need a miracle to lift them from the foot of the AFC South. They perhaps have no choice but to move on and replace Bradley at the end of this season.
