Found December 29, 2012 on Total Titans:
So it has come to this. Late last season, I wrote a post on a Titans offense that was fundamentally nonfunctional. Three hundred seventy-six days later, the offense is once again fundamentally nonfunctional, for similar but not exactly the same reasons. For this post, though, I'll concentrate on one of the differences. In that post a year ago, I declared Matt Hasselbeck was neither the problem nor the solution. I'm having a very hard time saying the same thing right now of Jake Locker. Three weeks ago, the great Greg Cosell of NFL Films discussed Locker on his weekly podcast with Adam Caplan. I've mentioned Cosell's thoughts on here before, and I think it's worth excerpting his comments in detail. First excerpt:   [Locker] is going to be a major, major conversation in their offices because I can see, there's enough of him positive to say well, this guy's got a chance, but he's still a major work in progress. You know, he shows just e...

Tennessee Titans picks in 2013 NFL draft

With the regular season just concluded, the NFL has yet to officially determine the 2013 NFL draft order, but as far as I can tell the Tennessee Titans currently hold the following selections in the 2013 NFL entry draft: 1st round, 10th overall (own) 2nd round, 40th overall (own) 3rd round, 71st overall (own) 4th round, 104th overall (own) 5th round, 134th overall (own...

Jared Cook An Offseason Priority For The Titans?

Titans head coach Mike Munchak mentioned that re-signing TE Jared Cook will be one of their top priorities this offseason, per Terry McCormick. Cook underwent shoulder surgery after tearing his rotator cuff back in Week 13, which subsequently ended his season. Cook has plenty of potential to become a big-play threat for the Titans, but he has underachieved while in the team’s...

Titans Keeping Mike Munchak As Their Head Coach?

David Climer of The Nashville Tennessean writes that the Titans are unlikely to part ways with head coach Mike Munchak this offseason. “They’re going to keep him. Get used to it,” writes Climer. Climer adds that owner Bud Adams is unlikely to make another coaching change given his age. Munchak’s Titans suffered a terrible loss last weekend and the team looks to be in pretty...

Titans score four non-offensive TDs

Darius Reynaud and rookie linebacker Zach Brown gave the Tennessee Titans some NFL history to celebrate before wrapping up an ugly season. Tennessee became the first team in NFL history with two players scoring twice on returns in a game as the Titans beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 38-20 Sunday in their season finale. Reynaud scored on two punt returns and Brown returned two interceptions...

Titans win doesn't erase disappointing season

NASHVILLE -- A home win in the season finale for the Tennessee Titans might have taken some chill off the cold of the day. But the 38-20 victory over the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars here Sunday at LP Field did little to defrost a disappointing season that had long been placed on ice. The win notwithstanding, Titans fans in general and team owner Bud Adams in particular will carry...

Reynaud scored on two punt returns and Brown...

Titans score 28 points without running an offensive play

In case anyone knew, the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars played a NFL football game today. Not that anyone cares, because the two teams have proven to be disappointments this year; however, fans witnessed something you don’t see everyday as the Titans scored 28 points without running a single offensive play. The run started in [...]

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans: Week 17 NFL Pick

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-13) at Tennessee Titans (5-10) Aside from this being a divisional matchup, this is a completely meaningless game for these two teams. Both are out of the playoffs by a long shot. I have a rule against making significant plays on completely meaningless games. If the teams might not care about a game, I shouldn’t either. There’s just no way to predict what...

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans: Three Bold Predictions

In Week 16, the Green Bay Packers manhandled the Tennessee Titans in Lambeau, 55-7, while knocking their star player Chris Johnson out of the game with an ankle injury.Johnson returned in the third quarter but was clearly affected by the injury.  While Jacksonville isn't the playoff-caliber team that Green Bay is, the Jaguars haven't given up 100 yards to a rusher since...

Jaguars-Titans preview thoughts, gameday thread

I didn't do Enemy Intelligence this week. Given the nature of Week 17 and two teams going absolutely nowhere, my only prediction is that if one team cares, it will win the game. If neither team cares or, somehow, some way, both teams care, the Titans are slightly better than the Jaguars and playing at home. The line of TEN -4 looks reasonable to me, but anything from a close...
