Jaguars HC Urban Meyer refuted report, says leaking info is ‘garbage’.
One thing Urban Meyer has been consistent about during his tenure in Jacksoville is not holding himself accountable for his actions. Back when he was caught on video with a woman that wasn’t his wife, he said a party tried to convince him into joining them on the dance floor. However, the recording showed a young woman dancing intimately with him.
When questioned why James Robinson’s usage has gone down, he blamed Bernie Parmalee. Thus, it was going to going to be interesting to see how what Meyer would say in regards to Pelissero’s report of him calling his assistants losers. He outright denied it during the media session after the Jaguars’ loss. The head coach says he does have high expectations and can be demanding and described the report as inacurate.
Meyer noted that he did have a conversation with Marvin Jones but it was far from a heated argument. Moreover, the head coach believes their relationship is incredible and says they both had a good laugh after hearing the report.
Nevertheless, Meyer sounded defensive when asked what the team needs to do to turn things around.
"So what’s the answer? Start leaking information or some nonsense? No, no, that’s nonsense. That’s garbage. That’s you know, that’s once again I’ve been very blessed. I’m not really dealt with that. I’ve and I’ve not dealt with well, did you hear what he said? No, let’s improve on offense and get our quarterback in a position to be successful. That’s our focus. What someone’s brother said or someone said someone said that will occupy very little my time and if there is a source, that source is unemployed. I mean within seconds."
It sounds like Meyer wanted to get that one off his chest. He’s right the Jaguars need to focus on improving but they’ve tried that for several months with little to show for. He’s also right coaches need to be held accountable but this isn’t an isolated incident. Over the last three months, reports about him blasting his assistants have surfaced and the noise is going to get louder and the reports will keep coming unless the Jags start winning… or he losses his job.
