During the season, I wrote about how the Titans fared on offense and defense based on starting field position. Now that the year is over, it's time to take a look at the final numbers.For ease of comparison, let's look at offense and defense side by side. Chart? Chart.

What do we see here?
On both offense and defense, starting from the 20 seems like a veritable dead zone. It's counter-intuitive that worse starting field position can yield, on average, better results. It may just be a relatively small sample-size fluke, or it may be reflective that bigger phenomena are skewing the data.
The Titans, on par, started with better field position than the defense ended up with. The percentage differenc...

After six seasons with the Tennessee Titans, could cornerback Cortland Finnegan's time with the Titans be coming to an end? From the sounds of it that very well could be the case. And if he hits the open market, he certainly would be an upgrade for any team in need of improvements in the secondary.
And since the Bengals will be looking for additions in the secondary, it would...
The Tennessee Titans defense may not be getting an extreme makeover this offseason, but it is safe to say that it is getting an upgrade and an overhaul in certain areas.
The Titans have made no secret of the fact that they need to improve a pass rush that ranked 31st overall last season, even going so far as to hire Keith Millard as an assistant coach to specifically work as a pass...
With free agency approaching next month, I thought it would be a good idea to look back at the veteran players the Titans added in free agency in 2011, and see how their signings ended up working out.Looking to move on from a 6-10 season, the Titans entered free agency with some clear needs. Though they drafted Jake Locker in the first round, the lockout meant Locker was unlikely...
Coming off a disappointing 9-7 season that left them on the outside looking into the playoffs, the Titans have made clear their desire to have a quarterback competition during training camp this summer to determine who will be the starter in 2012.
Last year, the Titans spent much of the season with veteran Matt Hasselbeck under center while rookie quarterback Jake Locker watched...
It’d been 2008 since the Tennessee Titans had a winning record when Mike Munchak replaced Jeff fisher as head coach following the 2010 season. Expectations were low, but Tennessee produced nine wins despite the underperformance of running back Chris Johnson and some key injuries.
Also promising was the play of rookie quarterback Jake Locker. He sat most of the season behind Matt...
Hot News for WR Randy Moss
The best quarterback will play in Tennessee next year, even if it’s Jake Locker. That was the message sent loud and clear Thursday here at the Scouting Combine by Titans G.M. Ruston Webster and coach Mike Munchak. Both men called the quarterback position an “open competition” for next year. The news is not a surprise,…
Will Jason Jones remain a Titan in 2012?
Two years ago, defensive end was the biggest offseason need for the Tennessee Titans and they used their first-round draft pick, the sixteenth overall, to select DE Derrick Morgan. Problem solved, right? Well, no. Fast forward two years and defensive end is arguably the biggest need once again, so we're right...
Receiver Randy Moss took to Ustream 10 days ago to announce his first annual unretirement. Moss then popped up again multiple times on what he has dubbed “Moss TV” before taking a vacation in the Bahamas with former teammates Vince Wilfork and Kevin Faulk, and their families. He’s now back from the Bahamas, and he…
Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan is due to become a free agent. Lions coach Jim Schwartz used to be the be Titans’ defensive coordinator. And so it’s obvious to connect Cortland to Schwartz. Schwartz didn’t rule out the possibility on Thursday at the Scouting Combine. Walking like a Wallenda on the tampering tightrope, Schwartz didn’t say…
