Titans vs. Jaguars Monday Night Football: Trent Edwards Auditioning to Start?
Trent Edwards' lone drive for the Jaguars on Monday Night Football is a pretty small sample size, but the returns on that waiver claim have been pretty good for Jacksonville thus far.
Taking the reins of the Jaguars' offense with just over two minutes left before halftime, Edwards threw for 55 yards on 6-of-9 passing and ran for a first down as he marched Jacksonville toward the end zone. Tight end Marcedes Lewis turned the ball over inside the Titans' 20-yard line on a fumble, killing the Jaguars' chance to score.
Before Edwards entered, Jacksonville had been utterly ineffective on offense, managing just 72 total yards with David Garrard under center.
Numbers aside, Edwards made quicker decisions in his two minutes of action than Garrard has made all season. His throws downfield were in windows where the Jaguars' receivers had flashed open, and he only checked down once to Deji Karim out of the backfield.
It's too early to say definitively, but Jacksonville might not need a rookie to replace Garrard as a better downfield passer right away. If Edwards keeps this play up, he'll do well enough in the meantime.
