The team's lone notable asset for years shared a story on SiriusXM this week about an incident with fullback Greg Jones. MJD and his lead blocker were playing against each other in fantasy one week a few years back. Jones almost didn't block for MJD because in real football because it would have cost him a win in fake football.
Here's MJD from the interview:
"We got onto the 1-yard line, and they were like, ‘We better call this run play.' I'm like, ‘Greg, don't do it.' And he looked at me and he winked. And I was like ‘Greg.' It's not time to play. This is bigger than [winning in fantasy]. Let's not do this.
[Jones] wasn't going to block the guy!"
The Jaguars had a whole system set up for keeping MJD clued in on fantasy scoring updates, which led to the whole incident. MJD explains:
"Greg Jones - see he's not on the team anymore - perfect example: I was playing against him [in fantasy]. And we have our equipment guys keep us up on [the fantasy scores] during games. You know who you have and you see when you're not on the field obviously but ... I think if I scored, I was going to [beat Jones]."
Uh huh, no wonder he's not on the team anymore ... MJD is a ruthless fantasy GM.
Put away those Gene Smith effigies, and stop campaigning for a Blaine Gabbert jersey exchange. The Jaguars' problems go beyond that.
