Jags Will Try to Finish the Job

The Jaguars are going full circle with quarterback Vince Young.

Vince Young hasn't started since the first game of the 2008 season when he injured his knee on a hit by Daryl Smith and lost his job to Kerry Collins, who led the team to a 13-3 record.

But with the Titans at 0-6 and owner Bud Adams clamoring for Young, coach Jeff Fisher is putting him back into the starting lineup Sunday against the Jaguars.

The key for the Jaguars this time might be not to knock Young out of the game.

Last year, Collins faced a third-and-15 play on his first play after Young was hurt. Collins completed a short pass against the blitz to Bo Scaife who went 44 yards to set up the game-deciding score in Tennessee's 17-10 victory.

The Jaguars know the key to success is to keep Young bottled up in the pocket and force him to throw rather than scramble for big gains.

The game will feature the two worst pass defenses in the league. The Jaguars are 31st and the Titans, who are favored by three points despite their record, are 32nd.

But David Garrard had a good day against the Titans in the first game, passing for 323 yards and three touchdowns. If Garrard has another good game, the Jaguars like their chances of outscoring Young.
