Jaguars HC Urban Meyer running out of answers, hits rock bottom
Nowadays, two things come to mind when you see Urban Meyer’s name is trending on social media. Either he got fired or he made a questionable decision and neither development would be shocking right now, as the Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-11 and regressing by the week. The worst part is that the way there are no signs things are going to get better any time soon.
In Week 14, the Jags got shut down by the Tennesse Titans, the first time since 2009. Things were relatively even during the first two quarters but the game quickly got out of hand in the second half and lost 20-0. Tony Pauline reported late Sunday that if the Jags can’t beat the Houston Texans in Week 15, the organization could move on from head coach Urban Meyer.
Jaguars owner Shad Khan is one of the most patient owners in the NFL and has given former coaches more than enough time to implement their vision. Nevertheless, Meyer isn’t showing signs he’s the right man to lead the team. In fact, he’s proving the opposite and you will be hard-pressed to find someone who believes the Jags are better right now than they were at this point last year with Doug Marrone at the helm.
On the days preceeding the Titans game, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reported Meyer diminished his coaching staff and got in a heated argument with veteran wide receiver Marvin Jones. Pelissero goes on to say that the head coach — not running backs coach Bernie Parmalee — was behind the decision to decrease runnning back James Robinson’s carries.
As bad as the Jaguars’ outing against the Jaguars was, things got worse after the game, when Meyer made a series of puzzling comments.
