I wonder if Coach Jeff Fisher still thinks he can call Jacksonville Municipal Stadium home after his Tennessee Titans were humiliated in front of 49,014 Jaguars fans with a 37-17 loss.
David Garrard looked superb throwing 27 completions on 37 attempts for 323 yards and three touchdowns. For the second week in a row, Mike Sims-Walker was the leading Jacksonville Jaguar receiver with seven receptions for 91 yards and two touchdowns. His longest reception was for 19 yards.
Marcedes Lewis contributed in a positive way with four receptions for 76 yards and one touchdown. Torry Holt caught three passes for 42 yards, and Mike Thomas went five for 31 yards.
Maurice Jones-Drew had a mediocre day producing 14 yards on six carries, and 26 yards on three receptions. He did score one rushing touchdown.
The story of the day was the decimated Titans secondary. Garrard looked like Joe Montana as he easily picked on their cornerbacks especially rookie Jason McCourty.
We can only hope that the Jaguars have repaired what was broken offensively. One would be foolish to think that all the team's issues are now resolved. Jacksonville is still a very young team, but the difference today compared to their last home game two weeks ago against the Arizona Cardinals is that they played with passion and heart.
Maybe Wayne Weaver's announcement of games being played in Orlando coupled with two wins in a row will compel fans to return to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. I'll admit that I may have spoken a bit too soon and that the Jaguars may be making significant progress.
Next week they travel to Seattle. Could Jacksonville go from an 0-2 start to a 3-2 record? It looks like a strong possibility.
