On Monday, The Athletic released a story all about Urban Meyer’s tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Some things, like Meyer going wild in Columbus or kicking Josh Lambo and that being the nail in the coffin that got him fired, were already known. But other things included Meyer threatening to fire players and coaches, criticizing the importance of scouts while they were in the room, and not being familiar with NFL stars like Aaron Donald, Deebo Samuel, and Jamal Adams.
The whole thing really adds to the disaster that was Urban Meyer’s foray into the NFL. And while it doesn’t name them directly, it leaves one to wonder what owner Shad Khan was thinking hiring the guy in the first place.
Anyway, it’s brought out strong reactions from the masses.
Urban Meyer sounds like every terrible youth coach rolled into one.

Idk why y’all are expecting Urban Meyer to know who #99 on the Rams is when he doesn’t even know who #99 on the Jaguars is.

That Athletic story on Urban Meyer is exactly who Meyer has been his whole career. He just won in college so he got away with it.

Turns out Urban Meyer was actually the cartoon supervillain we all assumed Nick Saban was, and by all accounts Nick Saban seems to be really good guy. Life comes at you fast.

From now on, I will be recognizing Urban Meyer as the biggest bust in NFL history. Rest easy, JaMarcus Russell, you're off the hook.
