Titans top Packers, 20-16, in preseason opener

Just a quick post for now, but the Titans picked up another preseason win at LP Field, coming away with a rain-soaked 20-16 win over the Green Bay Packers. Three backs-Shonn Greene and Jackie Battle on the ground, plus Bishop Sankey through the air from Zach Mettenberger-provided the three Titans scores, while the Packers couldn’t find […]

The game is set to begin at 7 PM CT and will be on the air wherever the Titans and the Packers have local preseason affiliate. Non-local viewers will have to wait for NFL Network’s re-air of […]

2014 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: C

The final stop on the offensive half of our tour around the Tennessee Titans position by position, after quarterback, running back, fullback, wide receiver, tight end, tackle, and guard, is center. Minus some positional instability during the 2013 season, which I covered during the offseason positional analysis, the gist of the center positional analysis is […]

2014 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: G

After quarterback, running back, fullback, wide receiver, tight end, and tackle, our penultimate offensive stop on our tour around the Titans position by position as we approach the 2014 regular season. Guard was supposed to be a position of strength for the Titans in 2013 after the addition of two really big, high-profile additions. It […]

2014 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: OT

After quarterback, running back, fullback, wide receiver, and tight end, the next stop on our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head toward the start of the 2014 regular season is offensive tackle. For years, offensive tackle was the easiest, least interesting positional analysis to write. From 2007 to 2012, you […]

2014 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: QB

As is our custom, we begin our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head in the direction of the regular season with a look at the quarterbacks. When I did the offseason version of this little exercise, there was still at least a theoretical question as to whether Jake Locker would head […]

53-man roster prediction as training camp opens

It’s an annual rite. The Tennessee Titans begin training camp, and I try to predict which players they’ll keep after the cutdown to 53. Some years this goes kind of okay, other years I end up on quixotic quests and stick on them long after it becomes obvious they are indeed quixotic quests (see, e.g., my […]

Ray Horton’s 2013 Browns defense: top 10 or bottom 10?

I’ll have my customary season preview and record prediction post up the week before the regular season begins, but one of the reasons I’m not too optimistic about the 2014 Titans is I don’t expect the defense to be particularly good, or even necessarily as good as it was last year. Ray Horton is implementing […]

Ken Whisenhunt and fourth downs

I chronicled all of Mike Munchak’s fourth down decisions last year, but never posted anything here about it after the season ended since Munchak won’t be making any more fourth down calls for the Titans. What will matter for the 2014 Titans is what Ken Whisenhunt does on fourth downs. As an offensive coordinator last […]

More on Al Woods

To get a better idea of what the Titans are getting, I went back and watched a couple games of defensive lineman Al Woods, whom they signed back in March. Similar to when I did a similar exercise for Sammie Lee Hill last year, the first question was which games to watch. This really wasn’t […]

More on Zach Mettenberger

Greg Cosell, in an appearance on the Midday180 on May 14, 2014: “I think Zach Mettenberger can be a quality NFL starting QB. … To me he was one of the top three QBs available in the draft.” Eric Stoner, on the Draft Mecca podcast on January 31, 2014: “I already know, I’ll tell you […]
