His choice of phrases like "not a very good effort", "they (Miami) dominated the game" and "it wasn't good enough, period" were descriptive and probably on target following the 19-14 loss to the visiting Dolphins in a game where the Jaguars scored two touchdowns in the final six minutes of the game to avoid being shut out.
Del Rio hasn't publicly criticized his team much in the past, but its recent outing left him little choice. The Jaguars had 295 yards of total offense, but nearly half of that total (144) came on the team's last two possessions, when players who likely won't make the final roster were playing.
"We have a lot of work to do. Starting Monday morning, we'll get back to work and look to be better because that was disappointing," Del Rio said afterward.
"I think the whole team played poorly. Evidently I've got to do something a little different, a little better because it wasn't what we're looking for."
