Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence was filled with questions regarding Urban Meyer but he acknowledged that he still respects his coach. Over this past weekend, Jaguars head coach Meyer was photographed and filmed caverting in a bar with a women othen that his wife.
It caused a big distraction to the Jaguars. “I think everything’s been right on schedule like normal. I think we’ve operated well,” Lawrence said, per Pro Football Talk. “But at the end of the day, I can speak for myself for sure and I think — or I know most of the team feels this way: He’s still my head coach.
I still respect him, regardless of what happens. Like I said, we’re a team and we’re figuring it out. So, we’re all good. We had a great day of practice today and we’re all still working”.
Lawrence insists the Jaguars have moved on from the incident
“I think he’s done right by us,” Lawrence said.
“And we’re a team and we’re sticking together. Just because something happens that puts a little stress on it, that doesn’t mean you give up and just go your separate ways. You figure it out and work through it.
So that’s what we’re doing and I feel good about our team. Nothing’s changed. We’re still really tight. So we’re just looking forward to playing the Titans this weekend and getting back on track”.
This week, Meyer apologized to Jaguars owner Shad Khan, his entire team and family. “I feel like, at this point, we’ve all addressed everything,” Lawrence said. “Everyone knows the situation, the details.
It is what it is. Like I said, I’m still going to respect him. He’s our coach. I still believe in him — this team does. And we’re moving on to playing the Titans. And everyone kind of knows everything already, so there’s really no more questions, I don’t think, to be answered about it”.
Following a Thursday Night Football, the Jaguars returned home while Meyer stayed in Ohio. Lawrence was asked if he had an issue with that. “Not really, that’s not my call to make,” Lawrence said. “I still don’t know how this whole thing works in the NFL.
Obviously, things are a lot different than college, so I don’t know. I don’t have an issue. Obviously, the situation happened and it became an issue. But I didn’t have an issue with him not going back. I get it, he has family in Ohio”.
