Before the season started, I took some heat in the comments section of my predictions article about how I thought the Titans would be little better than a dumpster fire this season. With the way the season started, it appeared I could be right. Other than a game that should have gotten both defensive coordinators fired against the Detroit Lions, the Titans could have started the year 0-5. But a big win against the Steelers seemed to turn around their fortunes and give the rebuilding Titans some life.
3-5 at the halfway point of the 2012 season is already better than I predicted them being at this point and while there are still a multitude of problems, there have been signs of encouragement as well. I’m going to break down both the good, bad and the ugly of the Titans through their first 8 games.
This one has been all over the place through the first half of the season in Tennessee. With the Jekyll and Hyde play of running back Chris Johnson, the rushing attack has been a q...

Titans running back Chris Johnson went wild Sunday against the Chicago. He finished the day with 141 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries.Fantasy Spin:Johnson did lose a couple of fumbles but getting to 141 yards against the Bears' stout run defense is still an impressive feat, even if 80 of said yards came on one play in the fourth quarter.

After a surprising 9-7 finish to last season, the Titans were expected to compete in the AFC South. After eight games this season, they sit 3-5 with one of the worst defenses in the league.

It started ugly, with a fumble by Kenny Britt on the first play. It got a little bit better, as the Bears became the first team not to score against the Titans on their first and second possessions.
