From the movie quote "Luke, I am your father" from Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back to the quote "golf is a good walk spoiled" by Mark Twain - Both incorrect by the way. Every generation misquotes in their own way. Some are just plain misquoted, while others are just remembered wrong (take that Star Wars quote for example. Darth Vader actually says "No, I am your father.

A Jacksonville Jaguars player offered a telling quote Tuesday about Urban Meyer.

When Meyer left the world of college football to take an NFL head coach job, many wondered how he would handle the transition to coaching professional players. They also wondered how he would handle a league where losing was much more commonplace.

We quickly learned that Meyer did not handle either part very well. Comments from Jags linebacker Josh Allen help cement that point.

Allen spoke from Jags training camp on Tuesday morning and was asked for the difference between Meyer and new Jags head coach Doug Pederson. Allen’s answer was quite telling.

Report: Browns to consider extension for LB Sione Takitaki

  Report: Browns to consider extension for LB Sione Takitaki Browns linebacker Sione Takitaki is entering the final year of his rookie contract and it sounds like the team will consider an extension.Cleveland’s most frequent alignment is a 4-2-5 look, with Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and Anthony Walker entrenched as the primary linebackers in the middle of the unit. But when the team deploys a strong-side ‘backer, it calls upon Takitaki, a hard-hitting run-stopper whose 67.5 grade from Pro Football Focus in 2021 would have been a top-20 mark if he had enough snaps to qualify.

“It’s a professional locker room. It’s a professional setting. He’s talking to us like grown men,” Allen said of Pederson.

Well, that helps answer things.

Meyer was used to coaching college kids. Apparently he didn’t adjust the way he handles players when dealing with pros, and the difference showed.

Maybe the curiosity of trying out the NFL got the best of Meyer. Maybe it was all the money he was offered that captivated him. But going to the NFL turned out to be a pretty bad move for his career.
