    Or by walking into a situation where the franchise has the first pick to take a seemingly can’t-miss prospect at QB.

      Ettienne late in the first round is his swing pick. He’s either a genius or clueless.

        That will probably be determined by what they do with their second round picks. They have so many needs, though, I don’t get taking a running back.

        I’m leaning bust on that one. Highly inflated stats behind a good offensive line against weak defensive fronts.

          I think Etienne is a great back and will have success in the NFL. I saw him as a 2nd round guy that might slip into the first round, but not to a team that already had 2 solid RBs.

          It’s like Corch doesn’t fully understand the budgetary limits and roster size of the NFL. For the Jags, Etienne is a nice to have but not really fitting a need. Trev will love getting the ball to them, but that’s not a 1st round reason.

  2. Corch Irvin Meyers, Former Jags Corch (2024)

    I’ll make this prediction right now:

    Corch Irvin Meyers will win more NFL games than Bobby Pig-trino.

    However, at some point he will experience chest pains or headaches and need to take time away from football to spend time with his family.

    Corch did take a job with a professional football team, correct? We need to cut Herbie some slack because he wasn’t good enough for pro ball so he doesn’t really know how a pro team works.

    Wha….?! Culture?

    Urban blew a first round pick on Etienne. Already had Hyde and Richardson. Said afterwards that they see Etienne as a 3rd down back.

    1st round pick on a guy you plan to use primarily on 1 (yes, important) down?

    Urban’s a con man at this point in his career. Talks it, looks it, but ultimately fakes it. His happy-talk honeymoon lasts about 1 season. After that, players start going under the bus.

      Outside of a handful of players, running backs are a dime a dozen in the league, and Etienne isn’t going to be among those handful of guys. The really dumb thing about it is that in all likelihood, he’d have been there at the beginning of the second round, and they could have instead drafted Stokes or Newsome to try to fill a desperate need they have at corner. Instead, they’ll end up taking someone like Tyson Campbell, and maybe he’ll end up being better than I expect, but he didn’t show the same kind of ability in college those other guys did. And that’s if they decide to address it instead of their need at Safety or the middle of the D Line at the beginning of the second.

        I’m no NFL GM but unless I was a db whisperer Tyson Campbell would be at the bottom of my board.

        • As others have said, I think Campbell would be a great guy at safety. He’s not shy from sticking his nose in the run game. Can cover a lot of ground with his size and speed.

            Great? or potentially good? He might not be shy, but he’s not exactly taking heads off like Cine or LeCounte.

            • I’m not saying he should have started at safety over either of those guys. He is probably more of a free safety over the top guy than an enforcer type of strong safety. We’ll find out.

              We recruited him to play corner. I thought Campbell should have returned rather than going pro.

                I agree that he probably should have returned, but I don’t really lament that he left tbh. I’d feel better getting a proven transfer. DJ Daniel coming back would have been better for us imo (and it’s still a head scratcher to me that he left early having yet to be a full time starter… kids).

  7. Who do I pull for when the Jags play the Bears? Not that I’m an NFL fan. I believe I’ll just start calling that my meteor game.

    Hopefully, Belichick will send Corch under a stadium to have some cold pizza and contemplate his future as an NFL coach.

      I love TimmyT’s commitment to Jesus, but can’t stand his hyperventilating hot takes. Corch alone is reason to cheer for the Jags to go 0-16. His hire made me add Indianapolis, Houston, and Tennessee on my list of teams to cheer for.

    Now that I’ve cleaned off my keyboard. It’s official I can never read this site again while actively eating or drinking. This story caused me to instantly bust out laughing.
    Every story coming out of Florida seems to trending toward a future dumpster fire. Laissez les Bob’s temps rouler!

    First of all, how the hell can Herbie use culture in a positive way in same breath as Urban’s name with a straight face? Scum.

    Second, last I checked the Jaguars were a professional team, and not a college team. Therefore you cannot just, buy will, charm or any other means, simply acquire the best talent in the league. Salary caps, the newer contract terms giving players more power in their futures, injuries, small rosters, lack of total control over personnel, all make being a successful head coach in the NFL much more difficult. I’ll be surprised if he makes the playoffs before his mistress, er, medical condition, takes him away from the game again.

      I agree. It is such a different game. Part of being a great college coach is being a snake charmer and getting the best of the best from HS. Irvin said that he had a lot of learning to do about the NFL and would rely heavily on his experienced NFL staff. I think what he is going to find is that job is way more involved than running a college team even though you don’t have the recruiting.

    Meyer is a bad human being and a lousy excuse for a man. His vindictive and petty stunt of calling timeout at the end of the 2008 game is indicative of a twisted soul. A normal person would’ve been more than satisfied with laying a thirty-nine point ass whooping on the team that spanked his tiny pecker the year before. That’s clinical sociopathic behavior on vivid display.
    I question the morals and principles of any person or organization that would hire this flaming asshole. It’s not as if his flaws are concealed to all but close associates. Meyer’s aberrance is known to even the the most casual football enthusiast. The Jaguars deserve whatever bad fortune befalls them and any success that occurs under Meyer’s watch is tainted.
    Fuck those motherfuckers.
