The first quarter of the season is over and it's now a good time to review the Titans' basic stats. As you would expect, after three blowout losses and an overtime win in a shootout, the stats are not pretty.
Before getting into the stats, I'd like to say that when Mike Munchak hired Chris Palmer and Jerry Gray as his coordinators, I was more confident in Gray's ability than Palmer's. Now that a season and a quarter have been played, I'm now more confident in Palmer than in Gray. The stats don't do anything to refute the reasons for that thinking, insofar as the offense has been outperforming the defense, especially this year.
And now, the highlights lowlights for the first quarter of the 2012 season, after the jump.
Total offense: 315 ypg (ranked 23rd)
Total scoring: 20.2 ppg (23rd)*
Rushing offense: 68 ypg (28th)
Rushing touchdowns: 0 (t-31st)
Receiving offense: 254 ypg (19th)
