For Halloween this year, David Garrard dressed up like Vince Young.

The Titans dressed up like NFL players. The Jaguars dressed up like the practice squad.

The Jaguars just beat the Titans 37-17 at home in week 4. Garrard had a career day throwing 323 yards and 3 touchdowns. It was a happy time to be a Jaguar fan.

Since then the Jaguars got globbered 41-0 against Seattle and squeaked out a home win against the putrid Rams.

The Titans managed to look worse. They lost at home on national television to the Colts 31-9. Then the Patriots put on a clinic in one of the most lopsided games in recent memory beating the Titans 59-0.

Still the Titans got back to what they are good at. Running the ball. The Jaguars used to be feared for their run defense but letting Chris Johnson run for 228 yards and 2 touchdowns is just like a kick in the manhood.

What's more frustrating is the Jaguars have one of the most explosive running backs in the league, Maruice Jones Drew. He literally is like a pinball in a pinball machine. He keeps bouncing around and won't go down. He proved his play making ability by scoring on runs of 80 yards and 79 yards.

In total he only had 8 carries. That's it. It's unfathomable. We're not NFL coaches but maybe they had a better reason why he didn't get more touches. I doubt it makes any sense.

The running game had a big game, when given the chance, but the passing game was all horror. Garrard threw for 139 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the 32nd passing defense in the NFL. The same one that gave up 5 touchdowns to Tom Brady in a single quarter.

The Jaguars season is turning into a disappointment. There is already lots of rumor of them moving to Los Angeles where a market has been wanting a team. The Jaguars will have a blackout for every game this season. With the product that's being put on the field, I don't blame fans for not wanting to spend the dollars to watch in person.

There's not much to be happy about if you're a Jaguar fan. Even next week's home game against the Kansas City Chiefs will mean a blackout and another chance to lose to one of the worst teams in the NFL.
