We continue our position by position analysis of the Titans, turning now to special teams. The Titans special teams were excellent in 2011, and that was reflected in Football Outsiders' metrics, which ranked Tennessee third in DVOA, first in weighted DVOA and third in non-adjusted VOA.
Most of the high rankings should be credited to kicker Rob Bironas, who enjoyed a career-best season. Tom has written two good pieces on Bironas in the last six months. The first, in August, was on expectations of him for the 2011 season. Following the season, Tom selected him as the Titans special teams MVP. I recommend both articles for your reading pleasure. The latter well covers Bironas' accomplishments last season, so there's little need for them to be rehashed here, though I will post his stats.
