Blake Bortles needs to prove to Tom Coughlin that the 2015 version of the Jaguars QB is who he is, not the one who regressed in 2016 — both in terms of production and mechanics.
Coughlin, returning to the franchise he once coached as executive VP of football operations, made that clear Friday when he spoke to reporters ahead of next week’s NFL Scouting Combine.
The retired receiver went on to tweet that he’s been called a good teammate by others that have played with him. He added if he was such a bad teammate, “why didn’t they cut me?” A follower asked him why these people didn’t come out and compliment him, and that’s when he added a jab to his former coach.
This is a strange response considering Mariucci has actually defended Owens, despite their troubled history. The former 49ers coach said last year Owens “absolutely” deserved to be in the Hall of Fame, and urged voters to put him in.
Whatever the case, Owens and Mariucci have never really gotten Baseball Jerseys Wholesale along, and it appears the relationship is still fairly toxic.
I also make a point of getting the perspective of as many Hall-of-Famers as possible. I’m inclined to place a bit more weight on this feedback because the Hall of Fame belongs to them, not to me or any of the 45 other media members who comprise the group of selectors.
Owens took exception to most of what was written.
