The actor’s eponymous comedy series is now in its sixth season, and the show has become a cultural phenomenon that continues to bring joy to fans. The actors talk about the success of their show and what it would be like if “I Thought It Was Great” stopped airing.
Following Urban Meyer’s long-awaited termination, there was a lot of talk about the Jacksonville Jaguars’ prospects of winning their third game of the season in Week 15. They were taking on the lowly Houston Texans, and Trevor Lawrence and the rest of the team were ecstatic at the prospect of playing under a new head coach for a change.
James Robinson, the team’s starting running back, in particular, seemed to be on the verge of making a huge jump forward in terms of production. Despite being one of the league’s best downhill racers, Meyer had developed a strong dislike for him in recent weeks. Meyer even benched him in favor of veteran Carlos Hyde before firing him.
Even though the Jaguars lost, James Robinson was rightly engaged once again.
In the end, the Jaguars were unable to start their post-Meyer era with a victory. They did, however, show optimistic indications of progress in the correct direction.
For starters, James Robinson (rightfully) re-established himself as a key component of the attack. On 18 carries, he carried for 75 yards and one score. On three receptions, he added an extra 13 receiving yards.
With Robinson averaging 4.2 yards per run in the AFC South matchup, one might argue the Jaguars should have given him more touches. The team’s underperforming defense, on the other hand, was being hammered by Davis Mills and the Texans’ attack. As a result, the Jaguars were forced to rely on Trevor Lawrence’s arm late in the game, a tactic that backfired.
Lawrence, on the other hand, took time after the game to express his feelings about Robinson’s return to the starting lineup.

When asked about Robinson’s significant participation, Lawrence remarked, “I thought it was amazing.” “Obviously, we’ve previously discussed how fantastic of a player James is, and we’re just going to keep building on that.” It was wonderful to see James, who was clearly really committed.”
When former Jaguars coach Urban Meyer benched Robinson, Lawrence was one of his most vocal defenders. Lawrence was plainly unhappy with being pushed to win and lose games with his arm every week, particularly given Robinson’s high rate of success running the football for the last two seasons.
It’s been suggested that Lawrence isn’t a fan of Meyer’s work. Robinson’s post-Meyer engagement was “fantastic,” according to his views.
Trevor Lawrence has a long way to go before he can be free of Urban Meyer’s wrath.
The #Jaguars score on a 22-yard field goal by Matthew Wright. Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars offense can undoubtedly improve on a strong start. Also, I notice James Robinson made an appearance on the first drive. The #Texans defeated the #Jaguars by a score of 7-3.

Despite the disappointing setback, Lawrence and the Jaguars seem to have taken a step in the right way on Sunday. Establishing a true run-first offense will assist Lawrence a lot going forward, as it will relieve some of the strain he’ll be under as he learns and reads NFL defenses.
This does not, however, imply Lawrence and the Jaguars are completely free of Meyer’s wrongdoings. Before the team can be deemed a viable organization again, it still has a long way to go.
Meyer only stayed in town for a few months, but he left an indelible mark on the city.
