Why were the Tennessee Titans better in 2008? Let me count the ways

Coming off of a 10-6 record and a playoff appearance in 2007, the Tennessee Titans were looking to attain bigger and better things in 2008.  Contrary to the dire predictions handed out by the so-called media experts, the Titans ended the 08 regular season with an impressive list of accomplishments: a division crown, the league’s best record […]

Travis LaBoy/Antwan Odom: The Titans hardly miss ya!

Do the names Travis LaBoy and Antwan Odom ring a bell? It was just last March when the former Tennessee Titan defensive ends decided that the grass (and the money) was greener in other NFL cities.

Monday reflections on Titans-Steelers and more

They said a great defense would show up on Sunday, but the wrong one did. The defense which led the league in several categories, including the most important one — scoring defense, couldn’t stop the Titans.   The Steelers defense hadn’t allowed a 300-yard game yet this year, but the Titans ended that streak, gaining 323. The […]

Previewing the Titans vs Steelers

What do you get when you have two offenses that are mediocre at best going against two stingy defenses? A very low-scoring ball game. Mother Nature won’t make it any easier.
