15. Picking Up the Pieces
Anybody expecting instant results could be in for a rude awakening. Their most recent 1-15 season was miserable by the standards of any franchise. Weirdly enough though, fans felt a sense of achievement at the end of the semester because they beat the Jets to Trevor Lawrence. But the fact remains that their run of 14 straight losses was the worst in Jaguars’ history (via Sports Illustrated). That’s not going away.
Meyer will try to pick up the pieces and put them back together again. However, he is under weird pressure because of the expectation levels. Lawrence is both a blessing and a curse because he has to get him delivering quickly. Meanwhile, he lost his other first-round hope, running back Travis Etienne, for the year. It’s not going to be easy and Meyer is unproven in this kind of situation.
