  1. Thoughts on Ramsey trade?

    the account is private, so the name is hidden. But there’s Fournette liking a tweet after his supposed shade saying that is is nonsense. Plus there’s the following tweets: Fournette wasn’t upset with Ramsey. You all need to stop reading into nonsense that isn’t there.
  2. Thoughts on Ramsey trade?

    In almost every situation, guys are going to be on both sides. And I’m sure some guys were frustrated with Jalen. It’s hard to believe that no one would think that he should just suck it up and play. But I’ve spoken to people with connections in the locker room, and from both of them, the consensus is very pro-Jalen, with several guys who have expressed their desire to play for another team as soon as possible, because they feel the front office has zero respect for them. I’m not going to name names, because it could be damaging for some of the players, so you’re gonna have to trust me on this one. Or don’t. But that’s what I’ve heard from people close to the players. If Coughlin is still around, you’re gonna see some guys you think are slam dunk re-signs leave the team and likely some surprising cuts from guys pressing their way off the team in the offseason. And Jalen isn’t the first one to feel this way, either. Allen Robinson recently liked a tweet that said that Coughlin’s treatment of him is the only reason he’s not a Jaguar anymore. All of Telvin Smith’s recent social media posts suggest the reason he’s taking the year off is in at least part because of how Coughlin treated him; and Telvin was a leader on the team. Dante Fowler said some pretty scathing things about the team’s treatment of him after his exit. Malik Jackson expressed that he felt like he was being pressed out of the team during last season. Marcedes Lewis asked to be released because he felt disrespected by the way the team handled the TE position after he took a pay cut to stay with the team; Lewis was also another locker room leader. Also, from what I heard, Hayden’s comments weren’t to be taken as a guy mocking Jalen, but as a guy who knew that the situation wasn’t resolved and was doing a little wink and a nod to that. And at least one player is extremely frustrated that Oehser portrayed the locker room the way he did the other day. It’s also worth noting that Marrone told Wigg that leaders on the team had approached him about this situation, but none of it was regarding Jalen - which seems to indicate that they’re talking to him about Coughlin. He also had that presser where he said nothing but good things about Jalen (which is to be expected and nothing should be read into a coach saying nice things about a player he may coach in the future) but expressed clear frustration with the way the front office was handling the situation. So yeah, sure. There’s probably a handful of guys that felt Jalen quit on them. But as a whole, that’s not what the locker room thought, because a whole lot of those guys have seen themselves and others past and present treated like garbage to the point of not wanting to be there anymore.
  3. Thoughts on Ramsey trade?

    It’s been proven those posts had nothing to do with Jalen. Fournette and Jalen are super close friends and Fournette has posted a bunch of stuff supporting Jalen after Jalen was traded. Several other players, including Telvin Smith and fellow DBs AJ Bouye and Ronnie Harrison have gone out of their way to post public praise of him after the trade. Not really the actions of guys who are upset with a guy for quitting on them, huh? Dede Westbrook called a Jaguars fan “lame as hell” for suggesting that Jaguars players should be upset with Jalen. Again, after Jalen was traded. Despite all the claims otherwise, the players don’t view it the way people on the outside do. Because they know what happened to cause Jalen to want out, and many of them feel the same way. And that last statement isn’t speculation based on the above on my part.
  4. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    It’s on Jalen that he was tired of seeing himself and those around being treated poorly and did everything he had to in order to get out, sure. But this doesn’t turn into what it was if Coughlin wasn’t who he is. I’m not going to name names because I don’t want to see players get thrown under the bus, but Jalen isn’t the only one in that locker room that wants to leave the Jags because of Coughlin’s behavior. And he isn’t the first one to leave the Jags because of it either. It’s just that most players aren’t good enough to publicly speak out and not have the *diva* tag hurt them, and he wasn’t going to spend another two years and potentially two years on the franchise tag after that being treated like that.
  5. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    I don’t think he seriously believes he would be locked out. It seems that it’s a dig at how Coughlin takes extreme measures any time someone doesn’t do something exactly the way he wants. One would hope this means Coughlin is done. It’s just complete trash that it took losing a hall of fame caliber player in the process. Shad did everything he could to make sure he didn’t turn into a bad owner like Dan Snyder, just to go the exact opposite way into terrible ownership.
  6. Jalen Ramsey traded to the Rams

    that’s.....not a good quote. At all. And Marrone had a press conference today where he expressed he isn’t happy with how the front office is handling this whole situation, and won’t even give him answers but are forcing him to be the only one to answer all the media questions. But let’s blame Jalen.
  7. Jalen Ramsey to Rams!

    He’s the best corner in football. Full stop. Lockdown man corner, and in my opinion, he’s the best Corner since Revis. There’s occasions that he’s not a great tackler, but it’s not a major issue. Fans always turn on disgruntled players, because it’s easier to hate a guy who is upset than to admit your franchise is run like a clown show top to bottom. Jalen isn’t the only one in that locker room that feels like he does (and I know this for a fact), it’s just that he’s the only player that’s both outspoken enough to say something and has the talent to make his grievances known without the diva tag ruining his stock in the league. Dante Fowler had the same exact grievance with the front office, and Allen Robinson admitted that same reason is why he didn’t stay with the Jags, even though he was offered the same deal he took with the Bears. Over the last few weeks, Telvin Smith has posted a bunch of stuff on social media that all but said that he decided to not play this year for the same reason. I’m not going to throw any players under the bus by naming them, but I have heard from someone connected to the team that several other players on the team feel the same way too. I posted in the thread in News a bunch of other players that have had major issues with the team over the last two years as well. The Jaguars are a clown show, and Jalen wanted out. His behavior to put pressure on the team was a bunch of mundane stuff, but it got people big time mad. I should note that there’s a rumor floating around that he knocked out his girlfriend. It’s been floated by someone who has a connection within the team - who claims to have known about it for a while but only mentioned it the night after Jalen asked to be traded. The person has been right about a good number of things happening, but has also been wildly wrong about some of his claims, and the timing is extremely suspect. Take from that what you will.
  8. Jalen Ramsey to Rams!

    Hope you guys don’t mind someone jumping on the bandwagon for at least the rest of the year (or however long Coughlin is still on the Jaguars).
  9. Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

    This is absolutely true. He, for sure, can still be traded. But I think it’s important to also acknowledge that Khan has made it quite clear that he doesn’t want to trade Ramsey and instead would like to remedy this situation and make Jalen the highest paid CB in football. So I think it’s fair to believe that the meeting between the two was working toward that end. How far the needle moved is really where the concern comes. I doubt just a couple weeks and a few talks moved the likelihood of Jalen and the Jaguars splitting to 0%, but it may have moved it from 99% to 75% or something where continuing to repair the situation will have benefits. The saga isn’t over, but hopefully Shad is making some headway into repairing the situation not just between Jalen and the Jags, but the multiple other players that have an issue with the team’s management as well. We’ll have to see going forward. I still think he is going to end up traded (and I’m still not confident he plays again for the Jags) and the other disgruntled players will find themselves leaving as well, but we’ll see.
  10. Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

    Lol it literally says in the article that the only reason Ramsey isn’t on that list is because he was sitting out, and said he would absolutely top the list if he had been playing. Just stop.
  11. Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

    Shad and Ramsey had a very long meeting, and apparently things are getting better. Jalen is expected to play this week. If Shad somehow fixed this... all praise be to him.
  12. Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

    If you had read the thread, you’d see I already had done so. You can start there though.
  13. Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

    Keep buying into the lack of context. There's a reason not a single Jaguars fan on here is saying Jalen has been a problem, despite every one of us knowing he's going to be gone. But I'm sure you reading that little glimpse of the timeline told you everything you needed to know and he's actually the bad guy in spite of what everyone who has watched him for years is saying. Every single Jaguars fan in here has reason to take the franchise's side over Jalen's, knowing Jalen is going to be gone. And yet they're not doing it the way Pittsburgh fans did with Bell and AB, or Raiders fans did with AB (and even a few did with Mack), or any other public break up across the league. Why do you think that is?
  14. Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

    A whole lot of incidents without any context. Like claiming that Jalen making an offhand response to the fact he received over ten death threats and hundreds of hateful messages on social media after a game was actually him saying he wanted to be traded.
  15. Jalen Ramsey requests trade from Jaguars

    The Eagles rumor started being floated around on Thursday. The initial rumor was that they were offering the Jags their choice of the TEs. Then this was Saturday:
