The Jacksonville Jaguars made the bold, yet controversial decision to hire Urban Meyer in the offseason.
He was going to team up with Trevor Lawrence and lead the team back to glory.
So much for that.
The Jaguars fell by a final of 20-0 on Sunday in a game that saw Lawrence throw four interceptions.
Meyer also only decided to run the ball eight times, putting even more pressure on his rookie signal-caller.
The loss to drop to 2-11 was bad enough.
But the loss itself came after reports dropped of Meyer being a terrible person to work with.
In case you missed it, he reportedly called all his coaches “losers” in a meeting.

So Meyer hired a full staff of people who he thinks are losers?
This is bizarre behavior and is further evidence that he cannot stick around for another season.
The Biggest Problem In Jacksonville
A coach can be rude and tough to work with if his team is winning.
But trying to act high and mighty on a 2-11 team is a whole new level of being out of touch.
And why is Meyer calling out people he hired?
Does he think so low of them?
He is casting the blame elsewhere even though he is the leader of the team.
This report is just the latest in a series of blunders for Meyer since he was hired.
"Calling someone a loser, that's inaccurate. I have high expectations for our coaches – I'm very demanding of our coaches."

Nothing is going to top the video of him being danced on at an Ohio bar following a loss when he didn’t even fly home with the team, but he still finds ways to make himself look worse and worse.
Even with all this, a successful Jaguars operation could bury the noise.
Lawrence throwing four interceptions in a shutout loss this late in the year, while James Robinson only ran the ball six times, is all ownership should need to see.
