Urban Meyer is bringing nothing to the Jaguars


Right here’s a query we requested about the Jaguars again at the starting of October, when it was clear Urban Meyer had already give up on this crew after he realized couldn’t bully his gamers, assistants and weaker colleges to success: What is this man nonetheless doing right here?

Following Sunday’s 20–0 loss to the Titans, one among Jacksonville’s least inspiring performances of the 12 months (which is saying loads), Meyer trotted to midfield alone, a husk of the coach who walked into proprietor Shad Khan’s workplace some undetermined time in the past and promised he might do the job higher than anybody else, with the remainder of his uninspired membership milling round behind him. He stood at the podium mumbling solutions to questions Sunday as if he have been performing some sort of dangerous Andy Kauffman impression with out the absurdist punchline. In any look, be it in entrance of the media or in the locker room after video games, he has all the presence and vitality of an unlit, off-brand candle. So once more, we’ll ask: What is Meyer nonetheless doing teaching the Jaguars? How is the crew, in any approach, benefitting from his presence?
