2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: WR

After quarterback, running back, and fullback, our next stop around the Tennessee Titans position by position heading into the 2015 offseason is a look at the wide receivers. In the preseason, there were two major questions surrounding the wide receivers. First, would the clear top three be good enough? Second, would the depth beyond the […]

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: FB

Programming note: Yes, I’m back at it. At least, I hope I am. I still would like to have all the positional analyses done before free agency officially begins next week; the perspicacious among you will realize that means more than one post per day, given the number of posts and the number of days […]

A 2015 preview of the Titans schedule

Even though fans of the Tennessee Titans had to sit through a painful 2014 season with a 2-14 record, the feelings quickly switch to optimism as the Titans look to secure their quarterback of the future with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The idea of picking their next franchise quarterback […]

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: RB

After our customary first stop at quarterback, our next stop as we travel around the Tennessee Titans position by position heading into the 2015 offseason is a look at the running back position. For the previous five seasons, the story of the Titans at running back was simple: it was the story of Chris Johnson. […]

Titans release RT Michael Oher

Yet another foray into the free agent market came to a bad end for the Titans, as Tennessee released right tackle Michael Oher on Thursday. Oher was, in some ways, the centerpiece of the Titans’ 2014 free agency class. He received the biggest contract ($20 million) and matched the longest length of time (four years). […]

Titans hire Dick LeBeau

Programming Note: Positional analysis series starts soon, by which I mean maybe as early as tomorrow if I bother to make the time to write the first post. After Dick LeBeau had his mutual parting of the ways with the Pittsburgh Steelers at the end of the season and didn’t decide to retire, the Titans […]

How the Titans Targeted Their Receivers in 2014

After last week’s look at running back usage, I thought I should look at how the Titans used their other non-quarterback offensive “skill position” players. Since outside of Kendall Wright they did not get any carries, I will begin with a chart. Notes: I did not include players like Brett Brackett, Richard Gordon, T.J. Graham, and […]

My predicted Titans RB usage against the Titans’ actual running back usage

So, back before the regular season began, I wrote a bunch of things about the Tennessee Titans. Some of them ended up being relatively close to accurate. Others were quite inaccurate. Since it turned into a theme of sorts, I thought today I would look at my predictions for how the Titans would use their […]


Field position and the Titans defense in 2014.

After covering the offense yesterday, I now turn my attention to how field position affected the Titans defense in 2014. Methodology is the same as for the offense and in past seasons. Touchdowns are worth 7 points. Made field goals are worth 3 points. Missed field goals are worth 2 points. All other drives are […]


Field position and the Titans offense in 2014

It’s time for my annual look at how field position affected how the Titans performed on both offense and defense in the season just concluded. I will cover the offense in this post and the defense in a subsequent post which should go up on Tuesday. Given the 2014 season was mostly a factor of […]


2014 Tennessee Titans Snap Report: Defense

After covering the offense earlier in the week, I now turn my attention to the final snap report for the defense. While I posted snap reports weekly during the season after each game, I thought it would be interesting to look at the season totals and try to spot trends (beyond what I highlighted in […]


2014 Tennessee Titans Snap Report: Offense

I posted weekly snap reports during the season, but now that the season is over I thought it would be useful to take a look at how many snaps each player played on each side of the ball, to look for trends over the course of the season. There will be two posts on this, […]

2014 Tennessee Titans Biggest Surprise: Avery Williamson

After choosing a biggest disappointment, it is time to end the week on a happier note by choosing a biggest surprise for the 2014 Tennessee Titans. It may seem incongruous to choose a surprise in a good way for a team that goes 2-14 and ends the season with the second overall pick. As with […]
