Found August 27, 2013 on Razzball Football:
For a fourth straight season, Razzball will be interviewing local NFL beat writers for some actual in-depth football knowledge to shed some additional light on our fantasy football knowledge.  Keep your eye out for an interview for every NFL team through the summer.  This installment comes courteous of Sharona Sports from leading Tennessee Titans blog Music City Miracles (date of interview – August 15): 1) Let’s start at QB, where I recently said on our podcast that I see Jack Locker being a solid fantasy backup or 2nd QB this year in 2 QB leagues.  He’s got weapons to throw to, a solid running game, and can tuck the ball and run as well.  How are Titans reporters feeling about Locker leading your offense in 2013? There is reason to be optimistic about Jake Locker heading into the 2013 NFL season. Locker had an injury filled 2012 campaign topped off by crippling injuries to his offensive line. Combine an offensive system that was less than ideal and the struggles were somewhat under...

Off the radar: Why we should expect a big year from Chris Johnson

Chris Johnson made a problem for himself in 2009. That year, he ‘played like he was homeless‘ en route to 2500 total yards, 16 touchdowns and a season for the ages. The problem: after a performance like that, the bar is set very high. In the three seasons since then Johnson has never fallen below 1400 total yards and has produced an average of 7.33 touchdowns. Not at all bad...

Each NFL team needs to get down to 75 players on their roster by Tuesday afternoon, and the Titans did just that by releasing thirteen players on Monday and placing veteran wide receiver Kevin Walter on the team's regulars season PUP (physically unable to perform) list, according to Terry McCormick of the Titans Insider. Walter was signed in the offseason from the Houston Texans...

Notes: Titans more focused on pressuring QBs

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Here's a big reason why the Titans allowed the most points in the NFL last season: The lack of pressure on opposing quarterbacks. It was a combination of lack of push from the defensive front, defensive backs who couldn't keep up with roaming receivers, and linebackers who were shredded by tight ends and running backs out of the backfield. As such, the...

Big-spending Titans tired of losing, ready to win

The Tennessee Titans finally have gotten to the point where they are tired of staying home during the playoffs. With owner Bud Adams spending more than $100 million this offseason, they finally feel ready to do something about that now.

The Tennessee Titans and the NFL's New Disregard for Defense

Defense wins championships. That is what we are always told; from our grandfathers to our fathers to us. What if we should tell our children something else?The NFL is now a passing game, that trend has been well documented and is now exhausted to the point of redundancy. The new trend may be teams sacrificing defense in favor of offense.Of the last four Super Bowl champions, none...

Titans send Walter to PUP, waive Markelle Martin as part of first cuts

The Tennessee Titans were required to trim the roster from 90 players to 75 by Tuesday, and they indeed did so. Most of the players they cut never had much of a chance of making the roster, but there were a couple notable names involved. First, wide receiver Kevin Walter was placed on the regular season physically unable to perform list. That means he will be out of action for at...

Tennessee Titans third preseason game review: Defense

After covering the offense yesterday, I turn my attention to an in-depth review of how the Titans' defense performed in the 27-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons. General disclaimers apply to this post in spades. Preseason production values meant some plays were hard to break down. Camera work, while better than it was the first game, was still not up to regular season quality...

Kevin Walter Placed on PUP List

Titans wideout Kevin Walter (back) has been placed on the PUP list and will miss the first six games of the season.Fantasy Spin:With Nate Washington, Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and highly-touted rookie Justin Hunter already on the roster, Walter's fantasy impact is expected to be minimal in 2013 even if he were healthy, which apparently he is not.

Titans looking more like team coach Munchak wants

The Tennessee Titans definitely feel better about themselves after Jake Locker showed how effective he can be both throwing and running the ball, and with a defense that showed off its aggressive side sacking Matt Ryan five times. Every little bit helps for a franchise trying to bounce back from a 6-10 season. Coach Mike Munchak said Sunday his Titans are proving they are much...
