The Jaguars are sitting at 1-7 on the season with a quick turnaround for a Thursday night matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, which has led the team leaders to call the dreaded "players only" meeting.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are on a short week, playing two games in just a five day span, so they're left grasping for answers for their poor play. With a matchup against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday Nigh Football, taking on the only team the Jaguars have beaten this season, some Jaguars players feel the need to call a players only meeting.
"We’ve got a few guys in each room. Me and (Jeremy) Mincey will take ownership from the front, (Paul Posluszny) Puz will take one for the Linebackers, and they’ve got multiple guys in the secondary. We’ll come in tomorrow and get together for a player only and figure this out," Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton told reporters after the Jaguars blowout loss to the Detroit Lions.
"We’re probably way out of the picture for the playoffs, but we’ve got to attack this thing like we’re 8-0, we need to come out Thursday because it’s a quick turnaround and stop a team that’s playing real good and beat a team we already beat," Knighton said.
I'm not sure what a players only meeting is going to do, but it's clearly getting past the point of frustration for the Jaguars players. Losing will wear on anyone.
