Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey decided that he wants out of Jacksonville after “some disrespectful things” were said to him following last week’s loss in Houston. Those disrespectful things reportedly were said to him by Jaguars V.P. of football operations Tom Coughlin.

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the relationship went sideways after the meeting between Coughlin and Ramsey.

No one will be surprised that the old-school Coughlin used some old-school techniques on Ramsey, and that Ramsey reacted negatively. Ramsey reportedly still wants out, and the Jaguars reportedly want to keep him.

The best way to do that would be to pay Ramsey. And if a decision has to be made between Ramsey and Coughlin, well, that’s a decision ownership will have to make.

  1. Millennials can’t handle criticism. I doubt Coughlin was “disrespectful”. He just didn’t sugar coat it. Millennials need sunshine blown up their butts at all time.

  2. Yeah, that genius Coughlin who contributed to running the Giants into the ground but for some reason never gets blamed and who arrived in JAX and immediately stood on the table for taking a one-dimensional Fournette. Sounds like where Jacksonville should have all of their eggs concentrated.

    I’d like to know what was said, ,aybe something as simple as “you’re not the best at your position” or “you’re not as good as you think you are”? There’s a big difference between disrespectful and the truth, maybe COughlin just spoke the truth, we all know how thin skinned some of these players are today!

  4. In the last 5 years I’ve witness the NFL game change so much….Tom is tough guy and doesn’t sugar coat….young athletes aren’t built for having their faults brought to their attention.

  5. Apparently today’s snowflake NFL player just has to feel disrespected to throw a tantrum and to extort his team. I’d like for today’s NFL players to have to play against the real men of the 1960’s and 1970’s.

  6. I think you missed an important reality:

    No one will be surprised that the old-school Coughlin used some old-school techniques on Ramsey, and that Ramsey had an old-school negative reaction.

    Just a minor wrinkle to clear up.

  7. I suspect Coughlin told him it’s not appropriate for him to get in his coach’s face. This is a big time affront to someone as fragile as Jalen.

  8. Sounds like ordinary millennial sulking to me. How dare Coughlin not coddle him and tell him how special he is.
