Found October 24, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 24 (-4) Record: 3-4 I thoroughly enjoyed last week’s Bills/Titans game between the two worst defenses in the league. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Hasselbeck looked like franchise quarterbacks. Chris Johnson looked like it was 2009. I thought the Bills lost the game in the first half when they settled for a field goal [...]

RB Johnson: 'I never felt like I left'

Call off the all-points bulletin. Chris Johnson, the highly paid running back fans wanted benched or even traded, is a big piece of the Tennessee Titans' offense once again. Johnson said Wednesday he feels like he never left. The man nicknamed CJ2K for racking up 2,006 yards in 2009 has helped erase his horrible start this season with one of the biggest games of his career...

NFL Trade Rumors: Should the Tennessee Titans Trade RB Chris Johnson Now?

The NFL Trade deadline is just six days away, so let the speculation begin. Should the Tennessee Titans trade RB Chris Johnson at the trade deadline this season? A case could be made for and against such a move. Johnson has struggled at times this season and is due a $10 million dollar salary in 2013 and his trade value might never be higher than right now. Johnson came out the starting...

Chris Johnson still isn't back to his old self

For the first time in a long time, Chris Johnson turned heads this weekend in the Titans' victory over the Buffalo Bills. Johnson resembled the "CJ2K" that we remember in route to 195 rushing yards and two touchdowns. It was a great game, but don't expect that to be the new-old norm for Chris Johnson. Even with his great game, the Titans rank 28th in the league...

Matt Hasselbeck is hurting the Titans future

Matt Hasselbeck has come to life for the Tennessee Titans. His success should be expected as he has led teams to the playoffs on multiple occasions. He is also a veteran who knows what to expect of defenses and what plays to make off of those reads. As a fan the concern is not for taking him out and replacing him with Locker while the team is winning, it’s a concern for hampering...

Hasselbeck scheduled to be Titans' starting QB again on Sunday

Matt Hasselbeck is expected to make his fourth straight start at quarterback for the Tennessee Titans on Sunday against Indianapolis. Hasselbeck is playing in place of injured Jake Locker, who continues to recover from a left shoulder injury. No target date has been set for Locker's return, but coach Mike Munchak reiterated Locker would be the starter when he is ready to...

Fitztragic

Watching Ryan Fitzpatrick play quarterback is exhausting. This wasn’t always the case. Hell, you know what? Maybe it was, but it’s in our nature to see victorious lapses through rose-colored glasses. It’s a painful thing to have followed over the past two years, the degeneration of Fitzpatrick from idolized messiah to gut-wrenching wildcard. It’s the nature of any fanbase...

Bills' Mario Williams considering surgery

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams will possibly undergo surgery on his injured left wrist during the team's bye week, reports Buffalo News. Williams has blamed the wrist injury for his lack of production.  He has only 3.5 sacks this season and had only one solo tackle in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans. “I need to play better, and I need to get healthy,”...

Colts-Titans Preview

With quarterback Matt Hasselbeck showing great poise and Chris Johnson running strong, the Tennessee Titans have posted their first set of back-to-back wins. They have a good chance to make it three in a row if the Indianapolis Colts can't improve on the road. The Titans look to continue their push up the AFC South standings Sunday when the Colts go for their first win outside...

Week 7 NFL Recap: Tennessee Titans at Buffalo Bills

I don’t know who the Titans signed midweek to wear #28, but whoever it was looked a hell of a lot like their old running back Chris Johnson. We haven’t seen Chris Johnson since he held out for a big money contract prior to the 2011 season, so it probably wasn’t him. But that was one hell of an impressive performance by whoever that guy was. Maybe we’ll see him again sometime…...

What’s going wrong in Buffalo?

Going into their bye week, the Buffalo Bills and their coaching staff have a lot of work to do to get back on the winning track. Head Coach Chan Gailey continues to reaffirm his support, faith, and belief in both quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and Defensive Coordinator Dave Wannstedt. Based on the outcome of the last three out of four weeks, Bills fans would think otherwise. Gailey...

Bye Week grades for the Buffalo Bills

Seven games out of sixteen feels close enough to hand out some mid-term grades for the 2012 Buffalo Bills. Especially given that it’s a bye week. It’s been a rocky road to 3-4 and it’s easy to dismiss the team as a defensive sieve with a rough quarterback and this 3-4 record is bound to get worse. You’re probably right, but in the AFC in 2012 anything is possible. Keep the...

Week 8 NFL Lines Favoring Eagles Over Falcons, Expect Bears to Maul Panthers

Upon the conclusion of Week 8, a handful of teams will halfway done with their schedules. Pretty crazy, right? Time does fly when you're doing nothing but watching football all fall, and as the clock ticks on the season, games get more and more important each week. This week, there is plenty of jockeying to be done in each division.  Let's get to this...

Thoughts on the all-22 from the win over the Bills

I've had a chance to go through the all-22 from the win over the Bills, and what follows is a melange of my thoughts on the various plays from the game. Offense 1. Chris Johnson's yards gained were overwhelming a function of good blocking by the offensive line. If he had 195 yards, any of the top 50 or so backs in the NFL with sufficient speed could have had at least...
