Jaguars coach Urban Meyer and defender Trevor Lawrence don’t seem to be on the same page.
After falling 0-5 in the 37-19 defeat to the Titans, the pair responded differently to Meyer’s goal line in the fourth quarter — they ran back Carlos Hyde instead of quarterback. When it falls to 12.
When asked why he didn’t call for hiding for a failed fourth attempt, Meyer said he said At a post-match press conference, Lawrence “didn’t like it very much.”
The Clemson product did not add to this.
“No. I feel comfortable ” said Lawrence“Obviously I didn’t spend it in the game, but I feel comfortable … But no, stealing the QB is something we can all do and I feel comfortable. “
Meyer admitted, “I know it may sound silly, but if you’ve never done it, we have to keep it. [working on] in such a difficult situation we can call. ”
Lawrence finished 22 of 33 games with 273 yards, one shot and a catch, and added 28 yards in seven runs.
Jacksonville came on in a 20-game losing streak and pressure on Meyer came to a halt after last week’s game.
Last week, the NFL’s freshman coach came under fire after a woman was pictured dancing on her knees at a Urban Chophouse bar and restaurant. Since then, he has apologized publicly, as well as to the team, front office and family.
The Jaguar will host the Dolphins on Sunday.
