7. Can’t Handle Losses
Meyer has a fantastic winning record with Ohio State. He led the team to an 83-9 record with a national championship and three Big Ten titles. That’s incredible but there’s one problem. Meyer isn’t accustomed to losing. In fact, Paul Finebaum believes that this is why the new Jags coach will ultimately fail. He thinks that Meyer will self-destruct (via The Spun).
The ESPN analyst described Meyer as one of the worst losers that he has ever seen. While it’s essential to have a winning mentality, it’s also important to be pragmatic. Jacksonville is rebuilding after a 1-15 season. There’s no way that Meyer will instill his philosophy with an instant effect. It remains to be seen if Meyer can handle a team that expects to lose.
