JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Tom Coughlin's homecoming ended with a locker room tirade.It's OK coach, you're not alone. The Jacksonville Jaguars' defense tends to frustrate just about everyone.
Fred Taylor surpassed 2,000 career carries Monday. Among the 25 heavy-duty players with at least 2,000 carries, Taylor's per-carry average of 4.6 ranks fifth-best, behind Jim Brown (5.2), Barry Sanders (5.0), Tiki Barber (4.7) and O.J. Simpson (4.7).

|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
The Jaguars played a physical game the Giants could not match. Jacksonville's offensive line dominated up front and controlled the line of scrimmage, as both Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew had success running the ball against a banged-up Giants front seven. Jags QB David Garrard was able to pick apart the Giants secondary off play-action, particularly CB Corey Webster, who struggled in coverage all night.
The Giants looked like they where still reeling from the Sunday night loss to the Bears, looking sluggish on both sides of the ball and lacking any sense of urgency. Manning had his second consecutive poor performance, making poor decisions and inaccurate throws. Once again the Giants failed to get TE Jeremy Shockey involved until late in the game. The Jaguars defense pressured Manning by zone blitzing any time the Giants went to a three-receiver set.
The Giants defense played a lot of soft zone coverages that Garrard and his receivers took advantage of by sitting down in the zones. There was no real pressure on Garrard, and the Giants defense was left on the field too long.
Scobee has made 15 consecutive field goals. ... New York's 25 yards rushing was a franchise record for the Jaguars. ... Jags WR Ernest Wilford caught five passes for 72 yards, but sprained his right ankle late in the game and had to be helped to the locker room. ... TE Jeremy Shockey led the Giants with seven catches for 82 yards.
