Urban Meyer hasn’t even coached an NFL regular season game yet, but he’s already one of the most-scrutinized head coaches in the league.
Monday night, the Jacksonville Jaguars faced the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome. It was not a good performance from the Jaguars, who lost to the Saints, 23-21. Jacksonville’s first-team offense did not play well, as New Orleans led 23-3 in the third quarter, before a late rally by the backups.
During the contest, a photo of a frustrated-looking Urban Meyer went viral on social media.
Of course, several fans had to get their jokes off.

It’s just the preseason, though. And the Jaguars are coming off a 1-15 season in 2020. Anyone expecting a massive jump from Jacksonville in 2021 needs to recalibrate.
Still, Meyer admitted following the loss that his first-team offense needs to get a lot better.
“The starting offense, two weeks in a row . . . we’re just struggling to get into some rhythm,” Meyer said. “We’re not balanced right now.”
The Jaguars don’t have a lot of time to figure things out.
Jacksonville is set to open the 2021 regular season on Sunday, Sept. 12 against the Houston Texans. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. E.T.
