I never really understood why Jags’ owner Shad Khan hired Urban Meyer in the first place. But I applaud Mr. Khan for owning his mistake and not waiting another day to correct it.
Meyer is a bad guy. He was an abusive and dishonest martinet as a college coach, and his unfounded arrogance and disregard for others was an embarrassment for the Jaguar organization from the jump.
Meyer is also a liar. Khan clearly did his due investigative diligence with respect to the half-dozen or so new incidents that have been reported in the last two weeks. In October, following that viral bar video, Khan said publicly that Meyer had to regain his trust. Instead, he squandered any grain that remained.
Neither the Jags, the NFL, nor anyone who loves football or even just believes in basic human decency will miss Urban Meyer.
I’m wondering how the WFT and the Cleveland Browns will even be able to field a team this weekend. Washington has 18 players (including nine starters) on the Reserve/COVID list, with eight new positives on Wednesday. Five of their six defensive linemen will likely be unavailable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles, a matchup between two 6-7 teams who are fighting for playoff berths.
The Browns’ situation is at least equally alarming, and even more pressing because they play SATURDAY against the Raiders. No head coach. No Baker Mayfield. Cleveland is fortunate to have a back-up QB of Case Keenum’s caliber.
More than 100 NFL players have tested positive since Monday.
The Cards will be without D-Hop for at least the rest of the regular season. Longer, if his injured knee needs surgery. Yes, that right there could alter the race for the top seed and bye in the NFC.
ESPN says Texas A&M “won” Early Signing Day. Well, ok, I guess that’s that. We don’t even have to play next season, right?
Recruiting is ultimately the lifeblood of college football. But recruiting rankings and lists are a joke.
