Too early thoughts on the Titans and the draft

PROGRAMMING NOTE: I’m retiring from Titans blogging effective March 9, a.k.a. “tomorrow.” Unless some other really big news breaks between now and lunchtime tomorrow, like yesterday’s DeMarco Murray deal, this will be my next-to-last post here. My final one will be an attempt to say something about the Titans in 2016 and beyond, and probably […]

The legal tampering period starts today at 11 A.M. Central time, so there’s a chance we know soon which players the Titans will have […]

The holes on the Titans’ depth chart heading into free agency

PROGRAMMING NOTE: ICYMI, I’m retiring from regular Titans blogging. March 9 will be my last date posting here. In the past, I’ve considered this sort of a post, where I look at the Titans’ actual depth chart of a hypothetical version thereof and see where it stands based on which players are scheduled to become […]

Titans add CB Brice McCain

The Titans jumped into free agency before the new League Year began, signing cornerback Brice McCain. The deal is reportedly a two-year contract worth up to $5 million. The veteran (turned 29 in December) should be in a familiar scheme, as he played for Dick LeBeau’s 2014 Steelers before signing with the Dolphins last offseason. […]

Notes on the positional analyses

PROGRAMMING NOTE: ICYMI, I’m retiring from regular Titans blogging, effective March 9. It’s now been three weeks since I started the positional analyses. A few things have happened since then, there are some things I didn’t include I probably should have, and the range and scope of what I did meant there are some things […]

2016 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: ST

After quarterback, running back, fullback, wide receiver, tight end, offensive tackle, guard, center, defensive line, outside linebacker, inside linebacker, cornerback, and safety, the final stop on our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head into the 2016 offseason is a look at special teams. As I now mention every time I do this positional analysis, special teams consists of five separate […]

2016 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: S

After quarterback, running back, fullback, wide receiver, tight end, offensive tackle, guard, center, defensive line, outside linebacker, inside linebacker, and cornerback, the final defensive stop, and penultimate stop overall, on our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head into the 2016 offseason is a look at the safeties.

In the OLB positional analysis, I noted that the Titans’ defense, namely their pass defense, completely collapsed […]

Titans could trade down, still get blind-side help in draft

One of the NFL’s most drab franchises in recent years, which finished last in arguably the NFL’s worst division, is going to be quite relevant in the months leading up to the 2016 NFL draft. The Titans own the top overall pick, and what they do with that pick will be the topic of plenty of […]

In the preseason, I noted I agreed with Ken Whisenhunt’s perhaps somewhat equivocal endorsement, when he declared […]
