Around 2000 was the time I got into the Saints. New coach, Aaron Brooks was just starting, and the franchise's first division title in nine years. As a byproduct, I grew up thinking that Ditka's tenure with the Saints was the worst tenure for any multi year coach for any franchise. I still think that to this day.
But does it hold up? Gus Bradley has a career record of 14-40 with Jacksonville and they're down 17-0.
Is Bradley's Jaguars worse than Ditka's Saints?

I don't know, but I know this game is almost completely unwatchable. I'm going to weep considerably if the Saints' offense ever descends to this level...

The Jags better get their act together. Too much talent to do nothing with it.

From a pure win/lose angle, yeah, the Jags are worse. I think the Jags might have better talent than some of those Saints teams too, especially offensively. Defensively, Ditka's Saints were watchable but you knew they wouldn't have much help.

Wrap your brain around this...
The Jaguars have the same number of wins as we do through 6 weeks.

Obviously, winning doesn't tell the whole story but I'd be lying if I said that doesn't depress me a little.

Cowher is straight up calling out Bradley for being out of touch. All I know of Ditka's tenure is the record. I've only seen a half a interview when he was with the Saints.
Does anyone recall the media calling him out like this?

Apparently so.

“There have been 170 coaches in NFL history who coached at least 50 games, and Bradley’s winning percentage ranks 169th out of those 170. The only coach with a worse record was Bert Bell, who coached the Philadelphia Eagles from 1936 to 1941. And the only reason Bell wasn’t fired is that Bell was also the Eagles’ owner.”

Welp least Gus didn't trade an entire draft for one player ...then smoked a big Ole gar on TV when interviewed about it.

I think Coach Bradley might just be Bradley by the end of this week. :covri:
