The Tennessee Titans offense has a long way to go before it’s up to the standards of new head coach Ken Whisenhunt. On Saturday night in the team’s preseason opener against the Packers, there were a number of miscues.
That’s to be expected at this time of year to some extent, but the coaching staff singled out wide receiver Justin Hunter in particular for missing a route. As punishment Hunter had to wear a special jersey at practice on Monday, with the name “JAG” on the back:

JAG stands for “just a guy,” as in easily replaceable.
Things didn’t look a whole lot better for the offense overall on Monday. In fact many observers think it was their worst performance of training camp so far.
According to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN it was pretty nasty:
“It was a horrific day for the offense, which came out flat and had mistakes in every area you can think of. There were multiple drops, fumbles, interceptions and bad snaps. Ken Whisenhunt downplayed it as one bad day, and of course it was, but the degree of badness was alarming.”
Delanie Walker, Nate Washington, Michael Preston, Taylor Thompson, and Derek Hagan all dropped passes. Meanwhile, running backs Shonn Greene and Bishop Sankey both fumbled – the latter twice.
