Pondering Jags in their exhibition finale

Posted by's Paul Kuharsky

Apologies in advance for being briefer in these observations of Jaguars-Redskins than I was with Titans-Packers.

A) The Titans went into the third quarter with the majority of their starters while the Jaguars wanted to get theirs out of dodge as quickly as possible.

B) I cannot pretend to be good at watching two games at once. Perhaps someday. Not yet by any means.

Later, Cleo Lemon hit giant Greg Estandia in the right side of the end zone. He went up and got it over a helpless defender. I couldn't help but think how much more effective Jags are in the red zone right now than the Titans are. If that holds Week 1, the road team will have an advantage at LP Field.

Starting right guard Maurice Williams, though, suffered a right leg injury when he got rolled up on, and that could throw things off. They are already working without center Brad Meester, whose biceps injury during training camp is an eight-to-10 week deal. The report on the broadcast said a sprained knee for Williams. Tutan Reyes is listed as his backup and could have to start in Nashville against the Titans Sept. 7.
