The Jaguars & # 39; toilet party looks a little less toiletry with the rise of Gardner Minshaw, but Jaalen Ramsay still wants it. Ramsay played and excelled Thursday night with a 20-7 home win over Tennessee, which was and is expected to be his last game as a Jaguar after seeking trade last week after a two-way confrontation with head coach Doug Marrone. But Ramsay made it clear that his problem was not with Marrone.
Ramsey heard mostly cheers at Thursday's game and was spotted hugging his fellow D-backs at the end. He is here as soon as the Jags decide which of Ramsey's many suitors offers the most for the 24-year-old, often closing corner with two more years of team control available.
You can see why any team would want it, but it's a little harder to understand why Jacksonville can't make it work. During his appearance on the podcast 17 Weeks recorded on Monday and released hours before last night's ricochet, Ramsay shed some light.
"The incident on the sidelines with me and the coach, I didn't think much about it in particular, because it happens from time to time. It's happening all over the league. "
Ramsey was referring to his small screaming and jolting match with Marrone a trigger that is still unknown, but which caused Ramsey to" passion. " Ramsay went to say that this was exactly what happened at a post-game meeting that made him go to his agent and ask for a trade.
"A few disrespectful things were said at the end of them, which made me definitely go out and call my agent as soon as I left. I said, "It's about time I'm here in Jacksonville. "
But who said these things?
" It has nothing to do with my teammates here. I love all my teammates here. It has nothing to do with the city. I love the city here. … But it was more with the front office and the organization. "
The meeting that upset Ramsay would have been with GM Dave Caldwell and / or Vice President of Soccer Operations Tom Caglin. Just in case you have any late doubt:
Coughlin has a history of alienating talented players and certainly has not given any indication that he is able or willing to change his management style in an era where players are increasingly they realize they don't do I shouldn't take this shit. Ramsey noted on the podcast that his dissatisfaction is not new and has been "building up for a while." So, unless something unexpected is allowed, Cacklin's lack of personality skills will be to the benefit of another team.
