SJ - December 11, 2021

Urban Meyer's first year in Jacksonville has been a complete disaster on and off the field.  From his very public lap dance to issues with players and coaches it has been a complete shit show.

The latest report from the Jaguars facility reveals issues with receiver Marvin Jones and running back James Robinson.  But the most ridiculous thing might be Meyer calling out his assistant coaches in a staff meeting.

Like the asshole he is, Meyer reportedly called himself a winner then called his assistant coaches losers before forcing them to defend their resumes.


Receiver Marvin Jones -- one of the locker room's most respected and mild-mannered veterans -- became so angry with Meyer's public and private criticism of the receiver group that he left the facility until other staff members convinced him to come back and had a heated argument with Meyer during practice.

During a staff meeting, Meyer delivered a biting message that he's a winner and his assistant coaches are losers, according to several people informed of the contents of the meeting, challenging each coach individually to explain when they've ever won and forcing them to defend their résumés.

Contrary to his public statements that it was injury-related, Meyer ordered Robinson's benching after an opening-drive fumble in last week's 37-7 road loss to the Rams, then had running backs coach Bernie Parmalee stop Robinson from re-entering the game, insisting Carlos Hyde (who played for Meyer at Ohio State) stay in. Only after Lawrence questioned Meyer on the sideline about Robinson's absence was Robinson allowed to return late in the second quarter. (Speaking to reporters this week, Lawrence said: "Bottom line is James is one of our best players and he's got to be on the field and we addressed it, and I feel like we're in a good spot and the whole team, we're good.")

Is Meyer trying to get fired?  At this point what other logical conclusion is there?  The team is terrible and he's blaming everyone except for himself.  It's pretty obvious he wants out.
