James Robinson is as confused as everyone else about how Urban Mayor handled him on Sunday.

The running back Jaguars made a crucial blunder in the team’s first drive during the Week 13 game against the Rams – a 37–7 loss – when defensive tackles all over the world. Aaron Donald rips the ball off his hands, He sat out the team’s next three drives, penned by Carlos Hyde.

Action Sports Jax asked Robinson If he felt like “bench,” he said, “I’d say so.” But Jaguars’ troubled head coach Mayer said his absence after the game was related to injury. The second year was a game-time decision for Sunday’s matchup with earlier Los Angeles, nursing heel and knee injuries, but ended up being active.

Why, then, did Robinson return in the third quarter to drop the team by 30 points, receiving three carries in waste time? It’s a question that was proposed by action sports Jax host Dan Hiken—with a fair level of frustration.

“If you’re defeated, there’s no point in being in the game for you at the end of the game,” Hicken said.

“I knew the game was over by that point, but probably should have rested,” Robinson replied. “I’m not sure what that meant.”

It’s a bad look for Meyer, who’s amassed quite a wardrobe of them during his first year as head coach of the NFL in Jacksonville. The 57-year-old retracted his original statement when pressed on Monday, seemingly after running back coach Bernie Parmali took Robinson out of the rotation. He also claimed that it was Parmali’s decision to reintegrate him at the end of the game.

“We are concerned about his load and how much he carries – and they keep track of that. Obviously, at that point in the game, they wanted him to carry something else, Bernie did,” Mayer said on Monday. .

But the mayor is the head coach and is responsible for the entire operation.

Meyer agreed with reporters Monday that bringing Robinson back for trash time was a bad idea. He has a few in common this season: getting drunk at a Columbus bar while a woman who isn’t his wife dances on his lap, signing Tim Tebow to play the tight end, a force accused of past racist behavior. Coach recruits and denies first overall draft pick Trevor Lawrence first-team representative at training camp.

And all this happened in the last one year. Let’s not forget any controversial moves Ohio State and Florida made throughout their years.
