The loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday put the Jacksonville Jaguars at 0-5 in the Urban Meyer era as the team continues to try and claw out their first victory.
While Meyer is pleased with where the offense is at, per Mark Long of the Associated Press, the Jaguars head coach has an absurd goal for that side of the ball.
Jaguars coach Urban Meyer says he likes the team's offensive identity right now. Adds that he wants "250/250," meaning 250 yards rushing and 250 yards passing.

If a team consistently passes and runs for 250 yards in each department they would be very hard to beat. It’s one thing to set goals, that’s fine. It’s another to set unrealistic ones, like Meyer just did with the Jaguars.
Jacksonville ran it really effectively against the Titans on Sunday and still didn’t even crack 200 yards. Why Meyer is setting this as the bar for the Jaguars is anyone’s guess and it adds to the list of things he has done or said during his short stay with the team that has caused many to just roll their eyes.
For a point of reference, the Jaguars have passed for 250 or more yards in two of their five games this year. They have ran for 250 or more in zero of their five contests. Yet Meyer now has set the bar at those marks.
The Jaguars will look to find that ever elusive first win in Week 6 when they head to London to take on the Miami Dolphins.
