A while ago, comrade in the statistical revolution Chase Stuart at his site Football Perspective put together a list of how old each team was on offense and defense. Now, obviously you can't just take roster size and apply it, but need to try to assess how valuable, relatively, different players are. For that, Chase used P-F-R's AV metric. I have my quibbles with that, but it's good enough for purposes, and he got an interest Titans-related result: the Titans were the fourth-oldest team on offense and the fourth-youngest on defense. How might that change this year?Obviously, without any turnover, you'd expect a team to just be a year younger. No turnover is not a reasonable expectation, but the Titans didn't do much to get younger on offense. They cut an older player in Daniel Graham, but his role on the team was slight. Guard Jake Scott, who wasn't young, departed via free agency, but they replaced him with an even older player in Steve Hutchinson. Re-signin...

Take one look at the roster of the Tennessee Titans and a few things jump out at you.
The first eye opener is the lack of big name players across the board. Of course there are names that are recognizable like Matt Hasselbeck, Chris Johnson, and Kenny Britt. Looking at the rest of the roster, however, seems to be a who's who of journeymen and untested young players.

This is one part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player for the 2012 NFL season on each NFL team. For the Tennessee Titans, that player is defensive end Derrick...

I went through and re-watched in great but not obsessive detail all of the Titans' defensive plays against the Seahawks. I kept track of player participation (as best I could off the Seahawks broadcast aired on NFL Network), plus took my usual smattering of notes.Details, details, details...
Braylon Edwards has always been a talented receiver and as such he’s proven himself to be an enigma so far in the NFL.
He’s made huge plays and saw his career jump off to a great start yet after leaving Cleveland he sputtered out in both New York with the Jets and in San Francisco.
Now, it looks like he’s ready to go for his and he appears to be on the verge of his long-awaited...
Jake Locker finally makes his first NFL start Friday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he's definitely looking forward to something he expects to be a lot of fun.
The Tennessee Titans just hope he plays well enough to make take the decision on their starting quarterback out of their hands.
