On the Tennessee Titans’ 2014 season

A look at the names atop the unofficial depth chart in the weekly game release for the Titans’ 2014 season opener at Kansas City on Sunday reveals an awful lot of familiar names. Looking at the offense and defense, I count two projected starters who were not on the 2013 Titans. There are a couple […]

Tickets under $90 for Titans opener in KC

Jake Locker’s quest to prove he is in fact the future at the quarterback position in Tennessee starts in Week 1. Facing an elite Kansas City Chiefs pass rush probably doesn’t instill the most confidence in the world, but Locker could improve under new head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Thanks to some issues in their secondary, […]


Tennessee Titans 53-man roster analysis

It’s finally season preview week. My goal is to have multiple pieces, probably two, instead of just one ridiculously long one like I had last year. The first element of any season preview is understanding what you have. As the process played out, I chronicled what the Titans did to get to 53 men on their […]


Titans roster cutdown open thread-Saturday

As Saturday began, the Titans roster stood at 60 players after they released 15 players Friday. That means at least 7 more cuts will be coming, one of which has already been released. Of the names still on the roster, the ones that stand out to me as possible cut candidates were one of kickers Maikon […]


Tennessee Titans roster cutdown open thread

Between now and 3 PM CT on Saturday, the Tennessee Titans have to reduce their roster from the 75 it was for yesterday’s fourth preseason game to 53, at least temporarily ending the NFL careers of over a quarter the current roster. Some of those players will find a spot on the practice squad or […]

Titans finish preseason with no apparent injuries in dull, rainy loss

Well, that’s that. It was a fourth preseason game. The rain descended on LP Field before the contest began, scrubbing away any chance the Titans’ first-stringers would play. The second-string defense made sure the first-teamers didn’t feel left out, though, repeating what they’d done the previous three games by allowing the Vikings to take their […]

Tennessee Titans fourth preseason game preview notes

The Tennessee Titans conclude the 2014 preseason tonight at LP Field against the Minnesota Vikings. Kickoff is at 7 PM CT. The game will be available on your Titans and Vikings preseason outlets, plus on the NFL’s Preseason Live streaming service (how I’ll be watching) and will eventually be replayed on NFL Network. “No injuries” […]

Titans notes-third preseason game, Jurrell Casey, cuts

1. Pardon the lack of a separate post on the third preseason game. Life intervened, plus I didn’t get anything compelling in the detail I was able to re-watch it with given that it’s a preseason game. Jake Locker still looked reasonably composed. That and the offense functioning smoothly when he’s in the game is […]


2014 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: S

Programming note: Whatever analysis I have of the third preseason game against the Falcons will be up tomorrow. Since I already covered special teams, the traditional ending point, we have finally reached the final stop on our tour around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we approach the 2014 regular season. After the offense […]

2014 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: CB

Programming note: What takes seemingly forever off the DVR takes even longer off the iPad or PC, so preseason game 3 analysis won’t be up until later. Tomorrow if I can find the time to finish, else Wednesday. After stops around the front seven at defensive line, outside linebacker, and inside linebacker, we turn our […]

Titans control second half for 24-17 victory over Falcons

Does that title count as burying the lead, a backhanded compliment, or simply the optimistic viewpoint of this game? I’m not sure, but whatever it was the Titans were outscored in the first half matchup’s of mostly starters, 17-10, but held the Falcons scoreless in the second half while putting up 14 points of their […]

2014 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: ILB

We continue the defensive part of our tour around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we approach the 2014 regular season with a look at the inside linebackers. As is the case with the outside linebackers, the inside linebacker group in Ray Horton’s new 3-4 defense combines players from a couple different positions in […]

Tennessee Titans second preseason game review

So, what the heck happened when the Titans lost to the Saints, 31-24? This post is an attempt to answer that question in more detail. General disclaimers apply in spades to this post. Preseason production values sometimes made player identification difficult. I do not have coaching film available and end zone/overhead camera angles were not regularly shown, so judging things […]
