"Make no mistake about it so there's not a lot of talk about it during the week: We're going to play to win and we're going to do everything possible to win this game, period," Marrone said during a conference call Tuesday, via The Florida Times-Union. "I'm not even thinking about what happens beyond that. That's the way we're going to go about our business this week."
The move doesn't come as a shock given the history of Tom Coughlin, the Jags' executive vice president, who didn't believe in resting players before the playoffs during his time with the New York Giants.
"When we went over [the situation], I said, 'Hey, listen, we're going to bounce back, we're going to work our [butts] off this week and we're going to go out and win this game and win this quarter [of the year],'" Marrone said. "That was pretty much the conversation. There wasn't any wavering from anyone about what we wanted to do and what we wanted to accomplish this week. We're 100 percent all-in on winning this football game."
