UFR: Jake Locker’s play against the Saints

So, how’d Jake Locker play against the Saints? There’s been a great deal of optimism around Titans’ fandom the past couple of days about Locker’s work in his relief appearance on Sunday, so I thought I’d do a play-by-play breakdown of how he fared. The normal caveats apply: I’m doing this off TV footage, not […]

Titans’ upset bid foiled by Saints, 22-17

In a game that was much closer than I anticipated but still had the same result, the Tennessee Titans held the New Orleans Saints’ offense in check early but failed to take advantage of their opportunities early and late and fell 22-17. It looked like the Saints might roll like I thought they would, as […]

Enemy Intelligence: New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints are coming off a 31-17 home win against the Detroit Lions. They jumped out to an early 24-7 lead before the Lions cut the deficit to 24-17 early in the fourth quarter before a Drew Brees to Darren Sproles touchdown pass extended the lead to fourteen points.

Field position and the Titans’ defense

I’ve been concentrating on how the Titans’ offense has done in my look at field position, so this week it’s time to look at the other side of the ball. Remember how the Titans are having trouble turning possessions that start in opposing territory into points? Titans’ opponents are not having the same problem at […]

Titans stave off Bills, 23-17

Behind the productive running of Chris Johnson, the Tennessee Titans today took a first-half lead and held on defeat the Buffalo Bills, 23-17. The Titans opened to scoring on their first possession, after a Buffalo three-and-out and a long Marc Mariani punt return gave them the ball in Bills territory. They then actually managed to […]

Enemy Intelligence: Last week’s Buffalo Bills game

The New York Jets are coming off a 28-24 road loss to the New York Jets. The Bills took a 24-21 fourth quarter lead, but Mark Sanchez’s fourth touchdown pass of the game, this one to Santonio Holmes, with 1:01 left to play gave the Jets the win. What I saw from Buffalo that game, […]

Total Titans: After eight weeks, the Bills were the #2 seed in the AFC. Now, they’re on the outside of the playoff picture and seem to be trending downward. […]

A few thoughts on the Titans playoffs hype, the Bucs and Bills

Even if the Titans somehow make the playoffs, they aren’t a good enough team to win a postseason game.  It will be one and done again, just like it has been for their last two postseasons. I’m not getting caught up in any hype about the playoffs. After Sunday’s win, the Titans are 6-5 and […]

Updating field postion and the Titans’ offense

Four weeks into the season, I noted the Titans were doing a quite poor job of converting possessions that started in opposing territory into points. After this past Sunday’s game, when the Titans got six points out of four possessions that started in Tampa Bay’s half of the field, I thought it was time to […]
