He's not here, and that's his decision. Believe me, it's not a great concern. You hope for the best, and you plan for the worst. Our goals for the season don't change, and if he isn't here, he isn't here. I don't control it. It's his choice. I've been involved in many kind of industrial business dealings. I've encountered strikes and violence. And if you don't handle that, you're not around to see them through. Believe me, on a zero-to-10 level of stress, this doesn't even move the needle.
From those comments it looks like the Jaguars are staying true to their words and MJD is also losing respect among fans. I've seen many fans comments about wanting to trade him or that he is under contract and should shut up and show up. Now the Jaguars aren't going to trade their most marketable player nor should they and to the fans that say he's under contract and should show up, I would say you don't understand NFL contracts very well. The problem with fans saying that or even worse Mr. Khan's comments about being under contract is that neither side honors their contract. If MJD blows out his knee this year and can't play again, then the Jaguars would cut him and not pay him the final year of his contract. NFL contracts are get while the getting is good kind of deals. I have always said I am behind what MJD is doing and understand why he is doing it. With that said at some point you have know that it's not going to happen and come into work.
When Maurice comes in is anyone's guess. The Jaguars could of handled this much better than what they have also. Taking a hardline stance wasn't the best choice but now they have backed themselves into a corner. They have made it almost impossible to try to work anything out. Hopefully this gets worked out soon because this offense looks like it could be good and I for one want to be yelling DREEEEEEEWWWWW at Everbank Field this year.
