Titans struggle, but get by Rams, 28-21

Well, it wasn't pretty but a win is a win.  Not that the pass defenses deserve a lot of credit, but neither team looked good trying to throw the ball.  Offensively for the Titans, the good news was they had success running the ball, the bad news was they had little success passing.   For the first […]

Titans 2013 training camp, 8/05

I was near the area where the receivers do their positional work for Monday afternoon's practice, which also afforded me a good vantage point to watch the rest of practice.  After the positional work, practice began with special teams, which is usually one of the most boring aspects of camp. Today's session was no different, […]

Titans 2013 training camp, 8/02

In Friday's trip to training camp, I decided to go to the second field where the o-line and d-line have their areas for positional work. As it turned out, the team spent nearly 45 minutes split up into their position groups, much longer than I can ever remember the Titans doing before, and I was able to get some pictures of both […]

Titans 2013 training camp, 7/28

I know some of you who can't attend training camp appreciate photos from it and I'll have some for you after some commentary on Sunday night's practice. I'll try not to repeat boring and not helpful things that the beat writers report, such as "someone completed a long pass/touchdown pass to someone" or "someone else made […]

Tennessee Titans select SS Daimion Stafford in seventh round

With their final pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, #248 overall, the Titans selected Nebraska SS Daimion Stafford. Stafford is a big, physical in the box strong safety, a big hitter who might need some improvement in his coverage skills. If he makes the roster, it appears that he'll be depth behind Bernard Pollard and George Wilson.  Pollard is signed […]

Tennessee Titans select CB Khalid Wooten in sixth round

With their sixth round compensatory pick, #202 overall, the Titans selected Nevada CB Khalid Wooten. Wooten appears to be another outside press corner.  He has adequate but not great physical skills and should provide needed depth at the position.   Since both of the corners drafted by the Titans are outside rather than inside guys, I imagine […]

Tennessee Titans select CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson in third round

The third round of the 2013 round began with a run on cornerbacks.  Three of the first seven picks were corners and the Titans made it four out of eight with the selection of UConn's Blidi Wreh-Wilson. As Tom has noted on several recent occasions, the Titans had an urgent need at corner.  There were questions […]

Tennessee Titans select WR Justin Hunter in second round

The Titans moved up six positions in the second round, trading their second round pick, the 40th overall, their seventh round pick (216th), and next year's third round pick for the opportunity to select Justin Hunter. Hunter is an intriguing prospect.  He has outstanding physical abilities and tremendous potential but on the downside, he's demonstrated inconsistent hands […]

Titans should ask, what’s wrong with this picture?

Among all the firings of coaches and general managers around the league last week, there were three I thought were noteworthy regarding their success against the Titans.  Those three are former Chargers general manager A.J. Smith and coach Norv Turner and former Bears coach Lovie Smith. As we painfully recall, the Chargers and Bears each […]

The 2012 Titans didn’t fare well against top teams

Starting this weekend, the 12 best teams in the NFL will participate in postseason play while the Tennessee Titans and 19 other teams will watch their superiors perform. It should be no surprise to anyone who watched the Titans this past season to learn the Titans did not fare well playing against those teams.  Overall, […]
