Rushing title meaningless to Jones-Drew

Maurice Jones-Drew doesn't have much left to play for in 2011 when it comes to the Jacksonville Jaguars' hopes for the season.

But even though Jones-Drew leads the NFL with 1,137 yards rushing, he takes no consolation in that fact.

Asked by the Jacksonville Times-Union what the possibility of winning the rushing title would mean, Jones-Drew replied, "Nothing."

"We don't play for individual accolades," Jones-Drew said.

While that is a noble stance on Jones-Drew's part, the 3-9 Jaguars don't have anything else left to play for, other than pride. So perhaps they should rally around getting Jones-Drew his honor, similar to the way the Tennessee Titans made it their mission to get Chris Johnson 2,000 yards in 2009 with the team out of contention.
