TLDR SHOW INFO
Jaguars fans can breathe a sigh of relief because the losingest coach in NFL history has now been fired. Along with Gus Bradley and Jaguars franchise future talk, we get into college players saying no to playing in bowl games, Christmas boobs and more.
PLUS we finally share our thoughts on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story after seeing it a second time over the weekend.
Gus Bradley is no longer the coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars and hope has finally been restored to the franchise.
After the firing was announced, I said on Twitter it’s entirely possible to like Gus Bradley as a person and still not want him as the head coach of your football team. But when former head coaches in Jack Del Rio and Mike Mularkey beat your team in consecutive weeks and have either secured a playoff spot or currently have playoff hopes alive, it’s more than overdue to relieve the current coach of his duties.
THE OTHER BIG part in Monday’s show is reviewing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. I attempted to review the movie in Friday’s podcast but because Periscope video didn’t play nicely, I cut it out of Friday’s show, saw the movie again on Sunday and decided to do another review in Monday’s show.
The Rogue One talk starts around the 33-minute mark on the audio file should you want to jump straight to the spoiler filled review. And it should be about the same mark on the Periscope video below.
