Maurice Jones-Drew joined Barry Sanders and Frank Gore as the only running backs to score two 75+ yard touchdowns in the same game. The only problem was that was our entire offense.

Ernest Wilford is still shaking his head at the 15 yard "taunting" penalty he received, and I can't blame him.

Baffling Jaguars find a new way to lose | Jacksonville.com
For once, Gene Frenette write's a column I agree with. The Jaguars' inconsistency has reached a maddening new level under Del Rio. Either fix it or be gone.

Jaguars Notebook: Loss to Titans exposes cornerback issues | Jacksonville.com
Whether or not Reggie Nelson is a corner, if you can't tackle, you can't play. Also, Brad Meester started his 136th career game, tying him with Fred Taylor for the second most in franchise history. Congrats Brad!

More shuffling doesn’t help Jags’ offensive line | Jacksonville.com
Inserting Tra Thomas in a left tackle certainly wasn't the answer on Sunday. I'll have more of my thoughts on that later.

COACHING F

 

It’s hard to argue against the initial strategy of attacking the Titans’ pass-challenged defense through the air. It didn’t work because the Jaguars were simply outplayed in the trenches. With the Jags trailing 20-13 in the third quarter, backup running back Rashad Jennings was stopped for 1 yard on third-and-3. Why go to Jennings in that situation when you’ve barely trusted him to carry at all this season? The troubling thing over how the Jaguars failed to seize the momentum after they tied the game is it continues a Jekyll-and-Hyde pattern that has been evident for much of the Jack Del Rio era.
