Ray Horton vs. the Steelers

As promised, a post on the defense. This will be a look at some of the very good things the Titans did with their pressure packages that discombobulated the Steelers through the better part of three quarters, plus a look at how the Steelers were able to turn this around. Let’s start with the first […]

Greg Cosell vs. Trent Dilfer on Zach Mettenberger

The two most consistently interesting appearances on Nashville sports talk radio in my book are Trent Dilfer’s weekly appearance with Sports Night on 102.5 and Greg Cosell’s weekly appearance (mp3 link) with the Midday180 on 104.5. Both know a lot about what goes on on a football field and why, especially at the quarterback position. (And […]

Titans play strong for 40 minutes, lose 27-24 to Steelers

With four minutes to play in the third quarter, Zach Mettenberger found Chase Coffman for a 24-13 lead, and the Titans seemed to be in control of the game. Mettenberger had 241 yards passing and had hardly been bothered by Dick LeBeau’s defense after opening the game with a pick-6, finding time in the pocket […]

With low ticket prices, expect many Steelers fans at LP Field

The Steelers have been perhaps the hardest team to get a read on week to week in the NFL this season. A loss to the 1-8 Jets last week only adds to the Jekyll and Hyde reputation. They still have a decent defensive team but not as dominate as they have been in the past. […]

Titans-Ravens inactives, preview thoughts

So, I had this idea for a long, hopefully interesting post on what to expect from the second half of the Titans season, a season that looks lost and for which I indicated a record of 2-6 like the first-half record is likely, unless the team starts playing a lot better. What are the goals […]

A preview of upcoming Titans schedule

Just a few weeks ago it seemed the Tennessee Titans were hoping quarterback Jake Locker could just get healthy so they could turn their season around. Now it’s on to the Zach Mettenberger era. While the year isn’t officially over, the Titans do appear to be largely onto the talent assessment phase of the season. […]

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 […]

New QB, same result, as Titans fall to Texans 30-16

To those of you looking for a new beginning in Zach Mettenberger’s first start as a member of the Tennessee Titans, well, you’ll have to keep looking. In a performance that looked a lot like the six that came before it, the Tennessee Titans lost to the Houston Texans 30-16. The Titans are now 2-6 […]
