The Jacksonville Jaguars finally suffered a defeat and saw their 3-game win streak vanish at the hands of visiting Buffalo Bills this past Sunday. Luckily the Jaguars get to face the Tennessee Titans – the team that awarded them their first victory of the season in week 10. The Jaguars could be without Cecil Shorts and Maurice Jones-Drew again, so we decided to get some inside intel on the Titans from our Fansided bros over at Titan Sized.
No plan yet. It really depends on the head coach. While Fitzpatrick has had some good stretches, he’s 1-6 as a starter. Locker was 4-3. Fitzpatrick has an incredible tendency of throwing an interception when it matters the most during the fourth quarter or overtime. Don’t be surprised if he isn’t retain beyond this season. Even if he is, there’s zero-percent chance that he competes with Locker for starting gig.
Justin Hunter. He only has 18 receptions for 354 yards with 4 touchdowns. The thing is that he has a knack for making the big play. One of his touchdowns was a game-winner with seconds remaining against the San Diego Chargers. Plus, his numbers have improved since he was inserted into the starting lineup. He has had 100-plus yard performances in two of his last three games.
Fan attendance is already looking bleak. I’m not sure he can survive this season. Fans have grown very sour on him. If Munchak loses to Jacksonville or Houston again, then ownership would be downright foolish to keep him around. The general feeling from Titans fans is that they want to eliminate anything tied into the Bud Adams’ Oilers regime and restructure it with more of an offensive mind, someone like a Greg Roman or even a Darrell Bevell.
Kendall Wright. One of the good things about Fitzpatrick is that Wright has developed into a legitimate No. 1 threat. He had 150 yards against the Arizona Cardinals, about 100 yards that came against Patrick Peterson. His main problem: while he has over 1,000 receiving yards and may finish with 100 receptions, he only has two touchdowns. His red-zone production must improve.
It’s hard to believe that the Jaguars could sweep the Titans. Somehow, someway, the Titans find a way to win this game. Otherwise, Munchak gets his pink slip after Week 17 games are completed.
