The fate of Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey is still up in the air, but it doesn't seem that he's too well liked by some of the players on the Jaguars current roster. Earlier in the year the players called a meeting with Mularkey about practice methods they felt were leading to injuries, and a nugget after the team's season finale loss to the Titans raises a couple eyebrows:
Asked one veteran who is not a fan of Mularkey if there were more like him in locker room: "Oh yeah." #jaguars— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) December 30, 2012
The veteran player in this instance obviously isn't and won't be named, so we don't know if it's just someone in Mularkey's dog house or even someone who won't be on the team in 2013 regardless of who the coach is. It does offer a little bit into why Mularkey may not be the answer for the Jaguars, however.
He seems like a nice guy, but dating back to Buffalo Mularkey is 3-20 in his last 23 games as a head coach and has had problems, seemingly, with players on his roster in 2012. The Jaguars need an enema and their best bet is to just fire everyone.
Except Jerry Sullivan. Keep him.
