Delanie Walker has talked this offseason about how he could have up to 70 catches. When I tried to project catches for the Titans, I had him at 45. Even that more modest figure, that would be the first time he's had even 30 catches, let alone 40. 2013 will be Walker's eighth season in the NFL. Just how rare a feat would having 45 catches be for that kind of player?
By and large, tight end, particularly receiving tight end, is not a position with a long shelf life. If they don't have 40 catches in any of their first couple seasons in the league, they're probably not going to have 40 catches. Over half century or so tight end has been a featured position, though, I did find a dozen tight ends who had 40+ catches in their eighth season and whose first 40+ catch season came in their fifth season or later.
Based on the names I came up with, if Walker does end up with 40+ catches this year, that will be a unique feat. He would become the first tight end...

The Tennessee Titans are a long way from reaching the Super Bowl, but that hasn’t stopped running back Chris Johnson from picking out his victory cigar in the small case that the team pulls off a miracle run next season. “I’m smoking that if we win the Super Bowl the whole cigar,” Johnson wrote on [...]
Titans RB Chris Johnson is known as much for his lofty predictions as he is his blazing speed. In 2010 the Tennessee speedster predicted he would rush for 2,500 yards a year after hitting 2,006, but came up way short, finishing the year with 1,364 yards. Earlier this year he proclaimed that the 2013 NFL season would be the one in which he breaks Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing...
It is a very good thing that the Tennessee Titans are poised to be a not-so-good team this year, or Chris Johnson may regret posting this challenge on his Instagram account. Johnson posted a photo of a monster cigar which looks to be about two feet long with the caption reading “I’m smoking that if we win the Super Bowl the whole cigar.”
The Titans definitely improved this...

WKRN, Nashville News, Nashville Weather and Sports The video above shows what happens to a fanbase when the team's talent goes south. Other than being very dazed, largely due to being put on live TV literally the second he woke up, the long Titans camper was able to put together a couple coherent thoughts, which is more than I can usually say when I wake up at the crack of...
Tennessee Titans Chris Johnson always sets lofty goals. In the past, his main focus would be to lead the NFL in rushing, eclipsing the 2,000 yard mark was always his main objective. Now he’s got some different motivational techniques “I’m smoking that if we win the Super Bowl the whole cigar,” Johnson wrote on Instagram this week. I like how he’s so Blunt.

After part one covering roughly the first half of the season yesterday, it's time to cover how the Titans intercepted opposing passers in the second half of the season. I'll then say some things about what I just wrote may or may not mean when it comes to 2013's prospects for getting interceptions.
Standard disclaimers apply in spades to this analysis. I do...
