I didn't do Enemy Intelligence this week. Given the nature of Week 17 and two teams going absolutely nowhere, my only prediction is that if one team cares, it will win the game. If neither team cares or, somehow, some way, both teams care, the Titans are slightly better than the Jaguars and playing at home. The line of TEN -4 looks reasonable to me, but anything from a close game to either team winning by multiple scores wouldn't surprise me.
Here are your inactives today:
JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS: OL Eben Britton, DE John Chick, DT Jerome Long, CB Antwaun Molden, OL Uche Nwaneri, RB Montell Owens, TE Allen Reisner
TENNESSEE TITANS: OL Daniel Baldridge, DT DaJohn Harris, C Kevin Matthews, CB Ryan Mouton, QB Rusty Smith, TE Craig Stevens, WR Damian Williams
For the Jaguars, Nwaneri had a concussion and was ruled out. Owens, who has some moves and a tendency to bounce everything and not run with enough power, apparently tweaked something in warmups and is a surpris...

It seems the Jaguars go through a rebuilding effort annually and this year will be no different.
Owner Shad Kahn has started his evaluation of the Jacksonville Jaguars and obviously he didn’t see much good.
Kahn has started the rebuilding process with the expected firing of GM Geno Smith according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Head Coach Mike Mularkey’s future will be determined...
Welcome to Black Monday. The front office carousel is expected to spin just as hard and maybe even more so than the coaching one does on the first day after the regular season concludes. Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan has made his first major move of the off-season in firing general manager Gene Smith.

David Climer of The Nashville Tennessean writes that the Titans are unlikely to part ways with head coach Mike Munchak this offseason.
“They’re going to keep him. Get used to it,” writes Climer.
Climer adds that owner Bud Adams is unlikely to make another coaching change given his age.
Munchak’s Titans suffered a terrible loss last weekend and the team looks to be in pretty...
Jaguars rookie Justin Blackmon was the first receiver off the board in the 2012 NFL Draft, and he'll also finish first in receiving yardage among rookies this season with 865. Blackmon had 79 yards and a touchdown on six catches Sunday.Fantasy Spin:Blackmon barely squeaked by third-rounder T.Y. Hilton (861). Blackmon had 615 of his 865 yards in the final seven games after Chad...

According to the Nashville Tennessean, Titans quarterback Jake Locker will undergo left shoulder surgery "in the near future."Fantasy Spin:Locker was given the starting job at the beginning of the season but was never able to find his groove in Tennessee's offense. Maybe the shoulder injury had something to do with that but we still don't have high hopes for him going into 2013.
Jacksonville Jaguars (2-13) at Tennessee Titans (5-10)
Aside from this being a divisional matchup, this is a completely meaningless game for these two teams. Both are out of the playoffs by a long shot. I have a rule against making significant plays on completely meaningless games. If the teams might not care about a game, I shouldn’t either. There’s just no way to predict what...
So it has come to this. Late last season, I wrote a post on a Titans offense that was fundamentally nonfunctional. Three hundred seventy-six days later, the offense is once again fundamentally nonfunctional, for similar but not exactly the same reasons. For this post, though, I'll concentrate on one of the differences. In that post a year ago, I declared Matt Hasselbeck was neither...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that sources have informed him that the Jacksonville Jaguars will indeed fire GM Gene Smith next week.
Schefter specifically mentions that Cardinals’ Jason Licht and 49ers’ Tom Gamble could both be candidates to replace Smith as general manager.
Gamble has been somewhat of a hot commodity in recent days. There have been a number of rumors connecting...

"I met with Gene Smith this morning to inform him of my decision to go in a new direction and thank him for his dedication to the Jaguars since the inception of the franchise," Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a statement. "I am personally appreciative for his...
Mike Munchak believes he's the man to coach Tennessee back to the playoffs.
His case: two wins in his final three games along with some young talent that helped the Titans become the first in NFL history with two players scoring twice each on returns.
Mike Mularkey's argument for keeping his job in Jacksonville may be a bit tougher, especially after what happened in the...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Darius Reynaud and rookie linebacker Zach Brown gave the Tennessee Titans some NFL history to celebrate before wrapping up an ugly season.
Tennessee became the first team in NFL history with two players scoring twice on returns in a game as the Titans beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 38-20 Sunday in their season finale.
Reynaud scored on two punt returns and Brown...
Even with a recent report that Jets quarterback Tim Tebow could end up with the Jacksonville Jaguars next season, Arthur Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com says it’s probably a stretch to believe that he’ll be a Jaguar in 2013.
After doing a little digging, we hear that categorizing his arrival in Jacksonville after the season as imminent is a major stretch.
Khan’s prior interest...
