Found October 05, 2012 on Fox Sports Tennessee:
Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray uttered the words of a man boiling over with frustration on Thursday the kind of words that might not escape the view of the NFL commissioners office. The performance of the Titans defense through four games has been historically bad. The team has yielded 151 points. Twenty-one of those points have come as a result of scores by opposing defenses, bringing Grays units share down to 130, which would still extrapolate to 520 allowed at seasons end. That total would represent the second-worst single-season mark in NFL history. The 1981 Baltimore Colts yielded 533 and the winless 2008 Detroit Lions allowed 517. The 1966 New York Giants rank third with 501, but only played a 14-game season, giving them the dubious title for the most points allowed per game at 35.8. For the record, this year's1-3 Titans have allowed 37.8 points per game. Grays comments came on Thursday in his weekly meeting with Nashville media when he was asked if ...

Titans impressed with Kendall Wright

According to ProFootballWeekly.com, the Tennessee Titans have been very impressed with rookie wide receiver Kendall Wright this season. “Titans rookie WR Kendall Wright, despite making his second TD catch of the season in Week Four, had a rough game, dropping three catchable balls. His struggles came on the heels of a critical fourth-quarter fumble one week earlier. Are the Titans...

Titans DC implies he wants opposing players carted off

The Titans’ defense, through four games, has been nothing short of horrible, ranking last or near last in the major statistical categories — points allowed, total yards allowed, passing yards, and rushing yards. Statistics aside, they can’t seem to defend the middle of the field on a consistent basis, drawing the ire of coordinator Jerry Gray. Heading into their Week 5 matchup...

McCarthy, Britt both questionable for Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy and receiver Kenny Britt both are questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota. McCarthy at least has practiced; Britt has not seen any action in two consecutive weeks due to his sprained left ankle. McCarthy has not played since injuring the ankle in the season opener against New England. He practiced Wednesday and...

Locker will sit this one out, Hasselbeck gets the start

Mike Munchak announced yesterday that Matt Hasselbeck will start for the injured Jake Locker when they take on the Minnesota Vikings. "We're going to start Matt at quarterback this weekend and ... (have) given Jake the week off," Munchak said. "Jake's sore today as he was yesterday. ... Even though he'll probably be better the next couple days, we don&...

Kenny Britt not doing as well as the Titans had hoped

According to John Glennon of The Tennessean, wide receiver Kenny Britt isn’t doing as much as the Titans had hoped by now. Britt is still working his way back from a knee scope that he underwent in the offseason. I wonder if Britt will be ready to go for this week’s game against the Vikings.  There was hope he would have been back last week, but he ended up not being ready.

Peterson vs. Johnson: ‘I feel I’m the best’

Adrian Peterson isn’t much interested in comparisons between him and Titans RB Chris Johnson. The two face each other Sunday, but after three rushing titles between them, but 2009 was the last time either of them led the league.

NFL Rumors: NFL Looking Into Bounty Gate II With Jerry Gray And Tennessee Titans?

The NFL made it perfectly clear how they will respond to any players or coaches who place an emphasis on trying to go out of their way to injure opposing players or who condone that sort of bounty mentality. Just ask the New Orleans Saints. They would now like to make it equally as clear that they will investigate any comment they feel could be construed as any sort of poor motivation...

Vikings will have to limit Johnson, Reynaud

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Fresh off back-to-back wins, the Minnesota Vikings return home to the Metrodome to face the Tennessee Titans this week, dealing with heightened expectations.Minnesota (3-1) has already matched last season's win total with wins against the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions. The Vikings feel they are prepared to handle the success this season."I think...

Peterson downplays rivalry with Johnson

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Two seasons ago, a meeting between Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson, two of the NFL's premier running backs, would have been a highlight on the NFL's weekly schedule. Sunday's game, with Johnson's Tennessee Titans visiting Peterson's Minnesota Vikings, would have been billed as a matchup involving perhaps the game's biggest breakaway...

Where's Michael?

  It's time for a new parlor game here at Total Titans, namely "what the heck is going on when the Tennessee Titans give up a passing touchdown." Since we're all about the synergistic gain here at Total Titans, I'll be doing this in a series of photos highlighting Michael Griffin in a takeoff of the "Where's Waldo" series of books, thus your...

Tennessee Titans (1-3) at Minnesota Vikings (3-1)

Tennessee Titans (1-3) at Minnesota Vikings (3-1) If it wasn’t for Arizona, Minnesota would be the surprise team of the year. In fact, I think they have a lot more staying power than the Cardinals. Despite Arizona’s record, they rank 27th in the league in yards per play differential, which I think is more indicative of their ability. Minnesota, meanwhile, ranks 9th in that category...
