A big reason the Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the Tennessee Titans

on Sunday was because their offense just couldn’t move the football. Be it from poor quarterback play www.thejaguarsfootballauthentic.com , drops and penalties they just could not move the ball. Another big factor in the game were two seeming blunders by head coach Doug Marrone.The Fake PuntLike, why? I am all about running fakes, but they require a right time and right place in the game. Doing it that early, from your own 43, is not the right time to do it. It compounded the issue because you could have pinned Blaine Gabbert deep in his own territory and just sent pressure at him like you’d been doing previously. You know what happens to Gabbert when he’s pressured and pinning him deep and doing so is either going to result in a quick three and out, safety or a turnover. “Yeah, I think you always, I always regret decisions that don’t work,” Marrone said after the game on Sunday. “I just wanted to be aggressive early and had the look. It looked good in practice and we didn’t execute it.”I’ll never fault a coach for being aggressive, but this was just beyond aggression. You don’t run fake punts that early in the game unless you’re playing a team you know is better than you and you’re trying to steal a possession. There’s also the thought that since the Titans scored on a fake punt the previous week, you run a fake because somehow that will mentally stop the Titans from running a fake because the surprise of it is gone... but that’s some real tin foil stuff.Ultimately, it was just a miscalculation on Marrone’s part that led to three points and put the Titans about 15 yards out of field goal range to start their drive. It made things worse by just being an awful designed play, pitching it to Corey Grant and trying to run wide.Not going for it on 4th and 3With 2:51 left in the fourth quarter down by three points, Marrone elected to punt on 4th and 3 from the 32-yard line with all three time outs. I understand the logic in that the Titans offense hasn’t done squat all day and you have your time outs so you try to pin them deep and get the ball back in better field position.The issue was Jacksonville Jaguars T-Shirt , it was clear the Jaguars defense was starting to wear down because they had been on the field the whole second half. The Titans had just come off a 12 play, near 7-minute drive to kick the go ahead field goal, followed up by you doing a quick three and out on offense when you punt. The gamble was betting on your defense to get another stop, but at some point your offense has to make a play and give them a breather and this was the opportunity to be aggressive and go for it. The Jacksonville Jaguars are preparing to play without running back Leonard Fournette again, maybe even for a longer stretch than before.Fournette re-injured his right hamstring in a 31-12 victory against the New York Jets on Sunday, and coach Doug Marrone has no timetable for his return.Marrone said tests show the injury is no worse than it was before returning. Considering Fournette missed two and a half games after initially tweaking it and came back too soon, it makes sense that the Jaguars (3-1) would be even more cautious this time around."It's the same thing," Marrone said Monday. "There's a thing that's just pulling at it. It's legit. There is something there, and we've just got to do everything we can to get that out. That whatever thing is that feels like it catches. That's all I know. I don't know all the doctor talk about it. I'm just trying to give you the layman's talk. It's just, 'Hey, I just got this little thing. It feels like it catches. It doesn't enable me to open up.'"Jacksonville plays at Kansas City on Sunday and almost certainly will be without Fournette.The Jags should be getting used to it by now. The second-year pro has missed five of 20 regular-season games and left his only two starts this season because of hamstring tightness.He ran nine times for 41 yards in the season opener in the first half, and carried 11 times for 30 yards against the Jets in the first half.Marrone declined to speculate on how long Fournette would be sidelined."I really don't know. Believe me, if I knew exactly what the deal was and I could tell you, three Jacksonville Jaguars Hats , six, 10, IR, whatever, I would," Marrone said. "I just don't know. Those injuries are tough, you know. ... I thought he was looking good. I really did and then, you guys are out there, so I mean you guys see him working. But it's different when you're playing a game. The game's different."Even though Jacksonville is 4-1 without Fournette in the starting lineup, no one questions how important he is to the team. The run-first, old-school Jaguars built their entire scheme — offensive identity, really — around Fournette and his skillset."You put your whole offense around, you build it around a running, physical Jacksonville Jaguars Womens Hoodie , downhill type of mentality," safety Tashaun Gipson said. "So when you lose that guy, who's one of the best at his position, it's tough. It's definitely tough."T.J. Yeldon is expected to continue getting the bulk of the work during Fournette's absence, with Corey Grant serving as a change-of-pace option.Yeldon has 205 yards and a touchdown on 49 carries this season. He also has 14 receptions for 125 yards and two scores."I've got faith in anybody they put back there because we know they're going to run hard," reserve center/guard Tyler Shatley said. "You just hate to see somebody with so much talent not be able to showcase it. I know (Fournette)'s worked hard and has rehabbed hard in trying to get better. Injuries are part of the game, but you just hate to see somebody have to work through that and not be able to perform how they want to."Quarterback Blake Bortles might be the biggest beneficiary, forced to carry more of the offensive load. Bortles threw for a career-high 388 yards and two touchdowns against the Jets, giving him two games with at least 375 yards passing in the last three weeks."Blake has a way of showing up when he needs to show up," Gipson said. "If you take away the (Tennessee) Titans game, when I don't think anyone played their best game, the offense just finds a way. And they've been doing it since the end of last season. They're taking opportunities of what the defenses will give them. That's paying big dividends for us. The best defense is the defense that's sitting on the sidelines. We did a lot of that in the first half Sunday."I'm not too worried about the offense."
