Titans rolled by Eagles, 43-24

It started ugly early and never really got that much better. The Eagles took the opening kickoff 107 yards for lead just 13 seconds into the game. Following a quick three-and-out, an efficient scoring drive made it 14-0 4:16 in. After four three-and-outs to start the game, the Titans would finally get the first of […]

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 […]


Tennessee Titans 2014 Week 11 Snap Report

According to the NFL’s official player participation information, here’s how the Tennessee Titans lined up in last night’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers: Offense (40 total) QB: Zach Mettenberger 40 RB/FB: Bishop Sankey 23, Jackie Battle 9, Dexter McCluster 8, Leon Washington 6, Shonn Greene 4 TE: Chase Coffman 30, Richard Gordon 21, Brett Brackett […]

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 […]

Titans-Steelers inactives, gameday thread

The inactives are out for Monday Night Football at LP Field between the Titans and the Steelers, and here they are. PITTSBURGH STEELERS: G Chris Hubbard, QB Landry Jones, NT Steve McLendon, S Troy Polamalu, OLB Ryan Shazier, CB Ike Taylor, S Shamarko Thomas TENNESSEE TITANS: RB Antonio Andrews, WR Kris Durham, CB Brandon Harris, […]

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. […]


Tennessee Titans 2014 Week 10 Snap Report

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 […]
