Total Titans – JagNation question and answer exchange

As we do here on Total Titans prior to every game, we’ve exchanged questions and answers with someone who covers the other team. This week, it’s our honor to be joined by Charlie Bernstein, the editor of Charlie also talks about the Jaguars on a radio show he hosts and writes about them for several […]

Four reasons behind the Titans’ four-game losing streak

It’s been a forgettable last several weeks for the Tennessee Titans. After starting off the season 5-2 and earning the status of seemingly everyone’s favorite darkhorse Super Bowl contender, the Titans have stumbled a bit, losing four games in a row and finding themselves sitting in the basement of the competitive AFC South. Let’s take […]

Titans-Jaguars question and answer exchange

Our guest for this week’s question and answer exchange will be Charlie Bernstein. I’ve known Charlie for five years and during that time he has held a variety of positions covering the Jacksonville Jaguars. Among other things, Charlie is currently with Jag Nation, has a radio show in St. Augustine, Florida, and is a member of the Pro […]

Time to step up, Jared Cook

One of the few (perhaps only is a better word) positives that came from Sunday’s 20-0 shutout loss to the Texans was the emergence of Jared Cook in the passing game. Due to a stinger that caused Bo Scaife to leave the contest, Cook stepped up in his place with a career-high 4 catches for […]

Jeff Fisher certainly made some changes

Javon Ringer is the Titans new #1 back. Texans 20, Titans 0.  It has been five years since I’ve seen such a lack of effort from the Titans. The last time the Titans played such uninspired football was the 2005 season finale in Jacksonville, a 40-13 drubbing. After that game, Jeff Fisher promised changes would be made.   […]

Titans shut out by Texans 20-0

For the fourth consecutive game, the Titans experienced the bitter taste of defeat. Thanks to a putrid offensive performance, the Tennessee Titans were shut out by the Houston Texans 20-0. Rusty Smith was overwhelmed in his first NFL start, throwing three interceptions while only leading the offense to 162 yards on the entire afternoon. Chris […]

Texans Tribune answers Total Titans’ questions about the Texans

Thanks to Mike Kerns of Texans Tribune, Bloguin’s new Houston Texans site, for joining us in this week’s question and answer exchange as the 2010 season heads into crunch time for the Titans. Total Titans: Arian Foster seems to be having a great year for the Texans, maybe the best rushing performance the Texans have […]

Tennessee Titans – Houston Texans preview

Rusty Smith will get his first NFL start on Sunday. The Tennessee Titans (5-5) will face the rival Houston Texans (4-6) in an important divisional matchup at Reliant Stadium this Sunday. The winner will stay in hot contention in the tight AFC South race while the loser will be in last place, with a tough uphill climb ahead […]

Upon further review: the Titans’ third down struggles

It’s been sort of overlooked in all the hullabaloo related to the quarterback position, but the Washington Redskins entered this past Sunday’s game with the worst third down conversion percentage of any team since the NFL started keeping track of the stat in 1991 or so, then converted 8 of their 16 third-down plays, including […]

Will Titans fans be stuck with both Fisher and Young?

Can Vince Young and Jeff Fisher coexist? From what we know, it doesn’t appear Jeff Fisher and Vince Young will be able to coexist and have a normal boss/employee or coach/player relationship. One or the other will have to go in the offseason.   The fans in Tennessee seem to accept this and they fall pretty much into three […]

Titans-Texans question and answer exchange

Another week, another Q&A session with the author of a blog covering that week’s opponent.  This time, it’s with Bloguin’s fine new Houston Texans blog, Texans Tribune, and its writer, Mike Kerns, as the Titans finally get to the heart of their schedule and crunch time against divisional opponents. Post your questions here, and I’ll […]

Step right up, Rusty Smith

Thanks to a thumb injury (and the fallout surrounding it) Vince Young’s season has ended prematurely. To make matters worse, Kerry Collins is also unavailable as he continues his recovery from a leg injury suffered against the Dolphins a couple of weeks ago. With the two veteran signal-callers sidelined, the seemingly far-fetched opportunity for 2010 […]

Vince Young loses starting job, maybe more

Vince Young in happier times.Photo by Andrew Strickert for Total Titans. Titans quarterback Vince Young injured the thumb on his throwing hand in yesterday’s ugly loss to the Redskins.  Vince was replaced in the third quarter by rookie sixth-round draft pick Rusty Smith. Vince’s postgame reaction was not one Titans’ fans were happy about.  Vince threw his shoulder […]
