Jaguars outside linebacker Josh Allen notices a big difference between playing for Urban Meyer last year and playing for Doug Pederson this year.

Allen said today that playing for Pederson, who won a Super Bowl with the Eagles, feels fundamentally different than playing for Meyer, who had only coached in college before becoming the Jaguars’ coach last season.

“It feels good to be part of a professional locker room, not only when you’re in the locker room but when you’re talking to the coaches. It’s a professional setting,” he said. “He’s talking to us like grown men. Nothing but respect.”

Meyer’s brief tenure in Jacksonville was a disaster, and he didn’t even last a full season. The Jaguars need to turn things around, and they hope Pederson is the coach to do it for them.

  1. Talk about shots fired at Urban.
    The fact that Urban kicked a kicker only tells us that he knew he would have gotten his own behind kicked if he pulled that stunt with anyone else.
    What a little man Meyer is.

  2. Khan .. like a lot of people ..believe what they see on TV.. Meyer was/is a phony .. people who knew him and knew football tried to warn him.

    Unfortunately the Jaguars won’t win anything anytime soon because the guy at the top doesn’t know what he’s doing.

  3. Just imagine how Meyer treated the 18-21 year olds who played for him in college. Everyone should be shown human decency. Being part of football team doesn’t mean that you sign up to be abused by an egomaniac.

  4. I think the Eagles success was a lot more about Frank Reich than Doug Pederson at the end of the day, but Mike Singletary would be an upgrade over Urban.

  5. Oh you mean respect is earned where it is given? Urban missed out on that lecture.

  6. When a coach who is driven to win, and holds players accountable enters a lockeroom full of losers who are stuck in their ways. Its like mixing holy water with demons.

  7. Kahn…..listen to Pederson and you’ll eventually start winning. If Doug tells you to get another GM & he has a suggestion as a replacement DO IT . He knows what he’s doing.

    Right, because Reich’s obviously been killing it.
    You suppose Philly should’ve kept Nick Foles, too?
