Jaguars Titans Post Game Roundup

Let's spin around the internet to get reaction to the Jacksonville Jaguars 16-14 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Jaguars QB Luke McCown passes his first test |
During quarterback Luke McCown's postgame news conference, one TV reporter started a question by saying, "Josh.'' McCown replied, "It's Luke,'' and then pointed to a door and said, "He's right out there if you want me to get him.''

Jaguars 16 Titans 14: Time of Possession Still a Problem for the Defense - Music City Miracles
One of the biggest problems with the Tennessee Titans in 2010 was their inability to get off the field on third down. The 2011 version of the Titans didn't look much different early on. They got better as the game went on today, but early on the Jags were having their way on third down.

Jaguars defense sets tone on first play of game in opener |
After much criticism of the Jaguars' pass rush — especially during the preseason, when the defense didn't get a sack in the first three games — wouldn't you know it? The Jags got a sack on the game's first play Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. It was made by free agent signee Matt Roth, who started in place of the inactive Aaron Kampman.

Happy with the victory - Game recap on
Initially, Maurice Jones-Drew wasn’t real thrilled Sunday. That was one storyline during the 2011 regular-season opener at EverBank Field Sunday, but the Jaguars’ two-time Pro Bowl running back said while he very much wanted to play more, it wasn’t the primary storyline. Not even close. Because to Jones-Drew, the story that mattered was that the Jaguars beat Tennessee.

Not bad for starters - Editorial on
From one perspective, this was a perfect start. Looking from a defensive lens, that’s how Paul Posluszny saw the Jaguars’ 16-14, grind-it-out-then-get-out victory over the Tennessee Titans in a sun-cooked, flag-draped 2011 regular-season opener at EverBank Field Sunday. Not perfect in an on-field sense.

Could David Garrard have won this game? We will never know. What we do know, however, is that Luke McCown did. On the strength of the running game, which piled up 163 yards (albeit on 47 carries for a 3.5 yards per carry average), the Jaguars were able to hold off the Tennessee Titans by a score of 16-14. McCown played well; he didn’t throw any interceptions, though he did throw one ball that should’ve been picked off in the red zone. He fumbled the exchange from center on a quarterback sneak, and did not throw any touchdown passes. Still, a solid performance by McCown. The Jaguars’ receiving corps looked small and outmanned, struggling to make plays and pick up any yardage. Overall it was an underwhelming offensive game by the Jaguars, but it was enough.

Wrap-up: Jaguars 16, Titans 14 - AFC South Blog - ESPN
Thoughts on the Jaguars’ 16-14 win against the Titans at EverBank Field: What it means: The Jaguars move to 1-0 in the AFC South where they are even with Houston while the Titans sit with the Colts at 0-1, each with a division loss. The Jaguars can clearly function as constructed, and won this one minus two key players -- end Aaron Kampman and right tackle Eben Britton.

No problem here with Jones-Drew's stance - AFC South Blog - ESPN
Maurice Jones-Drew was happy the Jaguars won, of course. But he was honest too: He was upset the Jaguars put him on a pitch count and didn’t think Jack Del Rio needed to worry about how much he played. Jones-Drew is coming off offseason knee surgery and a very limited training camp and preseason.
