18 to 88 answers questions from Total Titans about the Colts

As he did before the previous Titans-Colts game just three weeks ago, Nate Dunlevy of the great Colts blog 18 to 88 was kind enough to do a Q&A this week.  You can also follow Nate on twitter, and read my responses to his questions over at 18 to 88 here. Total Titans: Was playing […]

Six positions the Titans need to upgrade in 2011

Sometimes you hear about a team that is just one player away from breaking through. Or a team that is missing just one piece of the puzzle. It would be nice if that was the case with the Titans, but it’s not. They’re missing six pieces of the puzzle. Actually, more than that, but I […]

Marc Mariani and Jason Babin: The unexpected Pro Bowlers

It’s been a season full of surprises for the Tennessee Titans. Unfortunately, the majority of the unexpected events have been of the negative variety, such as the team’s promising 5-2 start being destroyed by losses in 7 of their last 8 games. Two of the positive surprises for the team has been the performance of […]

Coaching stock watch: Schwartz up, Fisher down

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz has his team going in the right direction while Jeff Fisher has the Titans going the wrong way. Two years ago, then-Titans defensive coordinator Schwartz left Tennessee to accept the head coaching gig in Detroit. The Titans had finished that season with a regular season record of 13-3, best in the NFL. The […]

Michael Griffin named to Bloguin All-Pro team

It’s been a much better season for Titans safety Michael Griffin than it was a year ago and people have been noticing. Griffin was selected to Bloguin’s inaugural All-Pro team, which was announced this morning.    Bloguin is a network of citizen sports writers, as my good friend and colleague Anthony Brown says, who share a passion for blogging about the world […]

Straight invisible homey: The vanishing act of Randy Moss

Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we? It was the beginning of November and the talented but seemingly troubled Randy Moss had just worn out his welcome in Minnesota as he was surprisingly released. In a matter of a few days, the speculation of Moss coming to the city of Nashville became a […]

Jeff Fisher will have some splainin to do

Jeff Fisher has coached the Titans to losses in seven of the last eight games. When Bud Adams summons Jeff Fisher to Houston after the end of the season, he’ll probably want to know some things. Little things. Like why the team, which he pays Fisher to coach, lost eight of its last nine games. And why his team hasn’t won a postseason game in […]

Titans seal losing campaign with 34-14 loss to Chiefs

Thanks to an uninspiring first-half performance, the Tennessee Titans clinched a losing season with their 34-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The combination of a poor defensive effort and a struggling offense paved the way for the Titans’ 31-7 halftime-deficit. On the afternoon, the Chiefs had little trouble dominating on the offensive side of […]

Tennessee Titans – Kansas City Chiefs preview

The Tennessee Titans still have a shot at the playoffs, though they need help. First things first, though — never mind what the Colts and Jags do this weekend — the Titans need to take care of their own business.   Standing in their way is a good Chiefs team, one that’s leading it’s division and trying […]

The importance of the Titans’ win over Houston

Three things come to my mind when thinking about the importance of the Titans’ win over the Texans yesterday. Two of them have to do with next year, so I’ll list the three in chronological order. Item One: The win keeps Tennessee alive, barely, in the hunt for a playoff berth, trailing the 8-6 Colts and 8-6 Jaguars. The Titans would have […]

Victory at last! Titans defeat Texans 31-17

Finally, after suffering losses in each of their last six games, the Tennessee Titans experienced what a victory feels like again.

Tennessee Titans – Houston Texans preview

The last time the Titans were preparing to face the Houston Texans, both teams were on losing streaks. Tennessee was then on a three-game skid, which they have extended to six losses. The Texans were then on a four-game losing streak. They won that game, but have lost twice since then and have now lost six of their last seven games.   As […]
