With the regular season opener against the New England Patriots less than two weeks away, the Tennessee Titans are looking to keep Colin McCarthy has emerged as leader of the young Titans defense. building off their productive preseason. You really like to see your team play well in the third preseason game that is basically a dress rehearsal. The Titans did just that by defeating the Arizona Cardinals on a national stage. Overall the entire team has looked solid in three preseason games, but these five guys have set themselves apart from the rest of the team.   5. Zach Brown-LB There was a lot riding on this preseason for Zach Brown, who marked the second-straight season that the Titans have taken a linebacker in the 2nd round of the NFL Draft.

The curious case of the Tennessee Titans’ offense

The Tennessee Titans have had a very middle of the pack offense in each of the last 2 seasons, ranking 17th by scoring 22.3 points per game in 2010, and 21th by scoring 20.3 points per game in 2011. However, they have the potential to be a top-10 offense in 2012. The reason for this is their playmakers. Once known as a conservative team that didn’t use high picks on offensive playmakers...

Hey, why so glum, guys? Your Tennessee Titans squad is winning…a meaningless preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals that saw punt returner Marc Mariani break both his tibia and fibula in a horrific, grisly scene.
