JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley let his players jump around on the field, dance in the locker room and hoot and holler as much as they wanted Thursday night.
He also rewarded them with three days off.
When they return Monday, Bradley plans to ground them a little bit.
He says, ''If we're going to boast, we boast our weaknesses to each other.''
Following Jacksonville's 27-20 win over Houston on Thursday night, a few players used the spotlight to respond to critics who called them the worst team in NFL history during their 0-8 start.
But the rookie head coach is trying to keep his players humble and hungry, sticking with his motto of ''eating crumbs'' after wins.
