The Titans and field position at midseason

One of the things I try to look at regularly here is the effect of things most people don’t think about that much, or don’t explicitly incorporate into their analysis. One of those things is field position. With the Titans at the midway point, I thought it would be useful to take a look at […]

Why is the same Titans team that went 7-9 now 2-6?

When I wrote my season preview, I equivocated before ultimately predicting the Tennessee Titans to finish 2014 with the same 7-9 mark they had in 2013. The biggest reason for my prediction was that, ultimately, this was largely the same collection of players that went 7-9. Eighteen of the twenty-two starters in 2013 returned, which […]

Late FG pushes Redskins past Titans, 19-17

Unlike last week, the field goal was good. The Washington Redskins got their fourth good kick of the game as time expired to beat the Tennessee Titans, 19-17. It was a contest that mostly lived down to its advance billing. The Titans held a 10-6 lead at the half, with both scores coming off Washington […]

Enemy Intelligence: Washington Redskins

It’s been four years since Tennessee has played Washington, or two head coaches ago for the Titans. Given the gap, and that I have the time, I thought it was worth an Enemy Intelligence just to see what this opponent actually looks like. Last week, Washington lost to the Cardinals, 30-20 to fall to 1-5 […]

Titans avoid another blown lead, edge Jaguars 16-14

It almost happened two weeks in a row. The Tennessee Titans were holding on to a 16-7 lead late in the fourth quarter. Outside of an opening-drive score after a single big play, Jacksonville’s next eight possessions had gone for naught, with the only two deep drives ending in turnovers. Then with less than three […]

Michael Roos and Bernard Pollard are out of the year, so now what?

Coming off last Sunday’s devastating blown lead, the Titans got two pieces of even worse news this week. The first was expected, or at least not a surprise: the Achilles injury that had Bernard Pollard on crutches after the game was ruptured, requiring season-ending surgery. The second was a surprise, a knee injury for Michael […]

Looking at the Titans’ fourth quarter play-calling

The Titans got the ball with 6:49 to play clinging to a 28-22 lead. They called three straight pass plays, in a situation where many teams would look to run the ball and burn time off the clock. After punting following the three-and-out, they again called three straight pass plays, the third of which actually […]
