Three reasons for the Titans to be happy and three reasons to be concerned in the aftermath of Tennessee's 30-3 rout against Jacksonville on Monday night.
Kerry Collins played well in relief of Vince Young against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Reasons to be happy
1. The Titans were up to the prime time test. Going on the road in prime time can be a scary proposition for some teams, but Tennessee handled its first taste of the national spotlight very well, overcoming the loss of QB Vince Young and routing the Jacksonville Jaguars with probably their most complete game of the season thus far.
2. Kerry Collins can still sling it. Collins came off the bench after Young hurt his knee and ankle and completed 11 of 16 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown. In all, he directed the Titans to two touchdowns and three field goals, showing he can still get the job done.
3. The secondary is finding the football. Led by Michael Griffin and rookie Alterraun Verner, the Titans secondary proved once again to be opportunistic. Both Griffin and Verner have had picks the last two weeks, as Tennessee has six interceptions in road wins at Dallas and Jacksonville.
Reasons to be concerned
1. Vince Young needs to be healthy. Young said he could have finished, taking shotgun snaps Monday night. But as a quarterback who needs his legs to be most effective, the question remains about how long it will take him to be healthy enough to scramble and move and how well he can play if he goes under center at less than 100 percent.
2. Cortland Finnegan seems out of sync. While others in the secondary have made big plays with interceptions, Finnegan still seems to be searching for the form that made him the team's top corner the past four seasons. You wonder if the league's warning about his aggressiveness has taken a toll.
3. Home-field advantage hasn't been one. The Titans have proven to be road warriors at 3-0, but are just 1-2 at home. The challenge doesn't get any easier Sunday with the Philadelphia Eagles, arguably the NFC's best team right now, coming to LP Field.
