    Yep that should be priority one, Meyer was known for college friendly offenses that didn't develop NFL ready quarterbacks. I remember the line on should he be developing NFL ready talent in Florida and he said to the effect his job was to win for the University of Florida and not develop pro talent.

    Media is pushing for Jim Caldwell or Byron Leftwich as next HC. The nepotism of Blacks in Sports Media(minus Whitlock) is so clear now.

    He also hired a "racist" strength coach. Anti Whites have been pushing that hard as well.

    They won’t ever question why blacks are over represented in sports though will they?

    Word is it will be a black coach hired to replace the The 12 Million Dollar Turd ... I'm ecstatic the ubber Caste clown was fired so quickly, too bad I didn't get this nickname out sooner. That refers to his alleged salary -- which Jacksonville refuses to make public, perhaps because they didn't want to offend established (Bill B.) NFL coaches? Hard to believe any sane person would pay a college coach that much, considering how Saban, Spurrier and other "recruiters" have struggled making the transition to the pros.

    My long standing theory is black coaches with black wives and families are (generally) much more fair to whites in football and basketball, then the black coaches with white wives. I truly believe it's because the latter are going out of their way to shake the "uncle Tom" label in the locker room, dominated by angry blacks.

    With that said, if it has to be a black head coach, I'd take Jim Caldwell in a second. He was much more fair to whites in Detroit than Fatt Matt Patricia or anyone prior to him dating back quite a while. Jim Caldwell allowed Zach Zenner to have an NFL career, undrafted from an FCS school. He had two white starting on defense, who were doing well -- Zettel and Worrilow. During most of Fatt Matt's reign of Caste Terror, I believe they had zero whites on defense -- not even a backup. Zenner was averaging close to 6 yards per carry for Fatt Matt, yet never got another chance.

    Speaking of Uncle Tom's, word I've read is Charlie Strong, the 12 million Dollar Turds top assistant in Jax, is being pushed hard by the players as the Jags new head coach. Strong, a very dark skinned black man with a blonde wife, was about the worst Caste stooge you could find in college ball last decade. Going back to his days at Louisville and Florida, merely having a white a guard and/or center was the best you could expect. Hopefully he never gets close to an NFL HC job.

    Great post @Truthteller

    The Jaguars need a continued facelift in terms of team composition. Get an actual o-line in front of Lawrence to protect him.

    To show how incompetent Meyer was he had bust Laquon Treadwell starting. Treadwell has 14 receptions so far this season.

    Don't you have to win at the college level to be an NFL head coach? You're asking for a severe face plant if you hire a guy who was a middling head coach at Texas to take over an NFL team and win. If you look at all of the coaches who won in college and then won in the pros or at least fielded competitive teams it boils down to about 2 or 3 guys in anything close to the modern era. Even Jimmy Johnson didn't quite have the salary cap constraints of the modern coach and there wasn't true free agency like there is now.

    The Bootleggers Boy was given the keys to a Ferrari and told to not flip it over and he did that for a season until the White House scandal was exposed and then it was off to staring at photos of the topless Marcus Dupree...

    I can't really recall any other winners in anything close to the modern era.

    Thanks, Leo. This is rarely ever brought up, but I really believe the biggest problem 12 Million Dollar Turd types (Saban, Spurrier, ect.) is they can no longer recruit 5-star newbies by the dozens. Instead, they must wait in line with 31 other teams to select players. And there is very room for error. If your 1st and 2nd rounders bust, you are stuck.

    In college, conversely, if a Saban needs to upgrade at almost every position, he can go out and get (at least) 4 or 5 All-Americans/5-star recruits at all those positions over a 3 year span. Busts are irrelevant, when you can recruit 25 All-American's a year. In the pros, you don't get 15 first round picks a year.

    WIR, you correct. Jimma J. and Mista Swizza wuz about the only 2 goofs I can remember winning a Super Bowl coming from college and Mista Swizza did ride Jimma's coat-tails. And most do fail -- even in the NBA. Although, I guess Jim Harbaugh could be included as very successful after jumping

    However, a couple big differences: One, Harbaugh had spent years in the NFL as a player. Two, perhaps more important, U of San Diego and Stanford were not football factories. Unlike 12 Mill. Turd and Saban, Harbaugh never really got a bunch of 5-star upsiders...he had to do it with "overachievers" like Toby Gerhart and Henry Anderson. Ergo, the NFL Draft process was never as frustrating to him, as he never really had a huge advantage in recruiting against others in the Pac-12.
