The Jacksonville Jaguars finally found a new head coach, and — despite a highly questioned search process — it’s even a Super Bowl-winning one. On Thursday night, Jacksonville hired former Philadephia Eagles coach Doug Pederson to lead the team after the Urban Meyer tenure was a complete disaster.
Well, Jacksonville is so excited — and perhaps a bit defensive after months of brutal PR — about making a highly-regarded hire that they released a very long statement about it with quotes from owner Shad Khan.
The statement looked very comical — and unreadable — in screenshot form, as shared by Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson.

Now, the statement doesn’t look quite as absurd when you read it on the Jaguars’ website, but it’s still rather lengthy for a basic introduction.
Either way, social media had jokes ready for how ridiculous the screenshot looked.
It made for perhaps the easiest sports Twitter use yet of the “I ain’t reading all that” meme, for example.

TLDR; as there's a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that'll be a home run. And so that'll make it a 4-0 ballgame. https://t.co/U1qterCtU2
