As the NFL enters week 6, the winners and losers are separating like oil and water.
But this early, there’s still time to turn the season around for some teams.
And one head coach set a sky-high bar for redemption after a major scandal nearly ruined everything.
If you ask many fans who is the biggest loser so far in the 2021-22 season, without any doubt, most would agree that title rests with the 0-5 Jacksonville Jaguars.
But in an attempt to turn the tide of their failing season, head coach Urban Meyer has set a lofty goal for their fledgling offense . . . 250 passing yards AND 250 rushing yards every game. Sheesh.
Now 250 passing yards is nothing too crazy . . . and so far Trevor Lawerence and the Jags’ passing game averages 229.2 passing yards a game, which is still comparatively low.
But 250 rushing yards? That’s just laughable.
As it stands the Jags average 129.4 rushing yards a game and the best rushing offense in the NFL, the Cleveland Browns, is averaging a red-hot 187.6 rushing yards a game.
As you can see, 250 rushing yards per game is insanely high. But you have to admire a man with big dreams.
Head coach Urban Meyer clearly wants to win some games . . . but I think he also wants to change the headline from his “incident” last week.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer was caught red-handed in Columbus, Ohio last week getting physical with a blonde bombshell at his signature bar.
Well, what better way to distract from a marital scandal than with another ridiculous claim or headline.
Or maybe he’s still a little riled up from his female friend.
Going forward, the Jaguars have a lot of work to do.
With no clear starting running back, a rookie quarterback who is not looking like his college national championship self, and a scandal-plagued coach, the Jags have a lot of work to do if they hope to put up record breaking level numbers.
