Jags ‘threw a tantrum’ when Marrone started making changes

By Mark Long, Associated Press JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville’s locker room was abuzz late last season. Four guys played table tennis while others crowded around a small table for dominoes. Two 80-inch televisions were tuned to a sports highlight show, and music blared from one corner of the room. Doug Marrone, the team’s offensive line coach at the time, walked through and shook his head. “Can you believe this?” Marrone whispered. The Jaguars were in the middle of a nine-game losing streak that would ultimately cost coach Gus Bradley his job. Marrone had watched from afar for two years, witnessing an atmosphere he felt was too loose, too laid-back and too lenient amid losing. So when Marrone was hired to replace Bradley last January, high on his to-do list was to change the culture in Jacksonville. His success is one reason the Jaguars (12-6) are in the AFC championship game against New England (14-3). The ping pong table was the first to go. Dominoes followed. The locker room stalls were overhauled, too, with Marrone mixing and matching position groups and putting certain players next to veteran leaders and/or NFL role models. “We definitely threw a tantrum,” Pro Bowl defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. “Went in there and talked to him about it. Definitely wasn’t happy. I learned just to be quiet, you know, and go with the flow. He’s been at it longer than I have, and I’m just the football player. He says do this and I go do it. Just learn to follow him, and I’m glad I did.” Marrone saved the most significant changes for the practice fields. Marrone, top executive Tom Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell wanted a much tougher and more physical team. They drafted bruising running back Leonard Fournette and fiery left tackle Cam Robinson to complement a defense that was significantly beefed up in free agency with the addition of All-Pro pass-rusher Calais Campbell, Pro Bowl cornerback A.J. Bouye and veteran safety Barry Church. They also designed an offseason program that was more grueling than most players had experienced. Marrone’s message was clear: Go hard or go home. “You remember guys in camp talking about this took a few years off their lives,” Jackson said. “It’s pretty funny just to see us now. I guess he does know what he’s doing.” The Jaguars were in full pads nearly every day during training camp, a tortuous stretch in draining heat and humidity that left rookies and veterans questioning the process and wondering if it would pay off. It was the NFL’s version of boot camp. Break them down, then build them up. It ultimately brought players closer, making them accountable to each other and causing them to care more for each other. Winning was the final piece, and thumping Houston 29-7 in the season opener was all the proof players needed. “It was the toughest training camp I’ve ever been a part of,” said linebacker Paul Posluszny, in his 11th season. “Coach Marrone would talk to us and say, ‘Listen, I have a plan and you have to trust me.’ With that, guys were able to say, ‘OK, we haven’t gotten what we wanted in years past doing things a certain way, so we have to buy in, trust the head man and know that that’ll bring us success when it’s time.’ “It was difficult just because of so many changes from what we were used to. I think the most important thing is we always said, ‘Well, if it helps us win, then it’s all good.’” Jacksonville had lost 63 of 80 games over the previous five seasons — the worst record in the NFL during that span — and had been through two coaching changes. Coughlin’s return was a key part of the team’s revival, and although the two-time Super Bowl-winning coach with the New York Giants gets much of the outside credit for the team’s turnaround, the reality is Marrone was the one pushing all the right buttons. Marrone has been other places where players resisted, prompting personnel moves that would slow progress. That wasn’t the case in Jacksonville, and he credited his players for being open to change. “They gave our staff the opportunity to say, ‘This is what we want to do. This is what we believe in as coaches or as an organization. This is how we want to handle ourselves,’” Marrone said. “We are still working toward that. It is not perfect by any means.” It’s clearly working, though. The Jaguars are in the title game for the third time in franchise history, one victory away from their first Super Bowl appearance. “They say (stuff) rolls downhill,” Jackson said. “Well, the good stuff rolls downhill, too. ... It’s all worth it when you win.”.....»»

Alaska destroys Kia by 37 points

Last Wednesday, Kia absolutely fell apart in the third quarter againt Magnolia. Well, against Alaska on Sunday, the Picanto did it again and it was worse. The Aces dropped a 36-5 bomb to start the second half of their matchup against Kia, cruising to an easy 102-65 win in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup at the Araneta Coliseum. Alaska completely flipped the switch in the third period, turning to its signature defense to pick up a second straight win and even out its record in the All-Filipino at 2-2. "I don't know what to say except for defense. I thought our defensive energy was a little undirected in the first half, and it caused us to give up some baskets we didn't want to give up," head coach Alex Compton said. "In the second half, I think it was a little more focused," he added. Jeron Teng was the star of the show for the Aces as the no. 5 overall pick scored a game-high 23 points, 13 in the third period, to go along with nine rebounds. Five other players scored in double digits for Alaska led by Carl Bryan Cruz's 16 off the bench. The assault started near the halfway point of the third when Alaska unloaded 24 unanswered points to go up, 75-38. By the fourth, the Aces' led by as many as 40 points before settling for a 37-point victory. The Picanto, now owners of the third-longest losing skid in PBA history at 16 games, got 16 points from Rashawn McCarthy. Similar to their game agaisnt the Hotshots, Kia just couldn't sustain its solid start. The team's five points in the third period was the fewest by any team since Alaska, ironically, also scored only five ppoints in Game 1 of the 2015 Philippine Cup Finals against San Miguel. However, the Aces won that game in overtime.   The Scores: ALASKA 102 — Teng 23, Cruz 16, Banchero 11, Abueva 10, Manuel 10, Pascual 10, Enciso 8, Galliguez 5, Thoss 5, Exciminiano 2, Potts 2, Casio 0, Racal 0. KIA 65 — McCarthy 16, Camson 15, Tubid 13, Ababou 5, Caperal 4, Reyes 4, Cabrera 3, Celda 3, Yee 2, Galanza 0, Jamon 0, Paniamogan 0, Sara 0. Quarters: 20-21, 39-34, 75-39, 102-65.   ---- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Renaldo Balkman to Arwind Santos: ‘I’m looking for you. Let’s just talk.’

Renaldo Balkman’s redemption in the Philippines is underway. And of course, in that redemption, Arwind Santos has to be involved somehow and someway. With the San Miguel star already having said he has moved on, it was the Alab Pilipinas’ import turn to show gratitude. “I heard about (what he said). People told me and I just want to thank him,” he told reporters. He then continued, “Soon to come, I’ll meet him. I’ll meet him over lunch, dinner, or whatever.” Back in 2013, Balkman was an import in the PBA and was a teammate of Santos in Petron, now known as San Miguel. In the dying seconds of the Blaze Boosters’ game against Alaska on March 8, the Puerto Rican was livid following what he felt was a non-call by the referees. He wound up shoving game officials, his coaches, and his teammates Ronald Tubid and Santos. The incident ended with what is the most infamous image Balkman has in the minds of Filipinos – him putting his two hands around the neck of Santos. Not long after the incident, then-PBA commissioner Chito Salud banned him for life and fined him PhP 250, 000. Five years after, the six-foot-eight forward said what better way for him and Santos to bury the hatchet by teaming up anew. “That would be great. Not only for him, but for me too. To team up with him again and to go and have another run at it, that would be great,” he said. Balkman went 5-2 in his time as Petron reinforcement. Playing without him, the Blaze Boosters then went 3-5, bowing out in the quarterfinals of the Commissioner’s Cup. While that reunion is just wishful thinking at the moment, the now 33-year-old said that what’s certain is that they have both moved forward from that incident. “With all the things that happened, the past is the past. The time will come (for us to be teammates again) and we’ll see what happens next,” he said. For now, Balkman just wants to set a man-date with his former teammate. “I haven’t gotten in touch with him, but I’m looking for him,” he said. And speaking directly to Santos – through reporters, of course – he the continued, “I’m looking for you, man. If you get this message, I’m down here. Maye one day, we can go out and have lunch, dinner, or whatever you want to do. Let’s just talk.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
