Gameday Week 11; Jaguars at Titans


Hubbuch, Bart, The Florida Times Union


Byline: Bart Hubbuch

LAST STAND?

Today could mark the last time Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair faces the Jaguars in Nashville.

Next spring, McNair, 32, is due a $50 million bonus that will have to be restructured if he is to return for a 12th season with the Titans. And that assumes McNair (right) wants to come back in the wake of numerous injuries, including a blow to the sternum from Jaguars defensive tackle Marcus Stroud last year that caused the quarterback to be hospitalized and nearly ended his career.

McNair said this week that he would only come back in 2006 if he feels he's healthy. But with the Titans on pace for their second consecutive losing season, speculation is swirling that McNair could hang it up.

If so, the Jaguars wouldn't be sorry to see him leave. McNair has tormented them over the past 11 games, compiling a 9-2 record while completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 2,272 yards, 15 touchdowns (with just six interceptions) and a 94.0 rating.

Hopkins is relatively undersized at 295 pounds, but he's a two-time Pro Bowler and one of the NFL's most durable linemen.

SCOUTING REPORT

OFFENSE

EDGE

JAGUARS

Rankings: Titans -- 17th overall, 19th in rushing, 12th in passing. Jaguars -- tied for 18th overall, 11th in rushing, 23rd in passing.

Breaking it down: The Titans' running game is as reliable as ever, and their stagnant passing game should receive a boost with the expected return of No. 1 receiver Drew Bennett. …
