When you're one of the most accurate placer kickers in NFL history, people tend to notice when you miss. Rob Bironas missed not once, but twice in his preseason debut for Tennessee.
Neither Bironas nor Titans coach Mike Munchak are concerned.
Bironas said Tuesday he knew instantly what went wrong when he missed wide left from 38 yards, and wide right from 37 in last week's loss to Cincinnati. He's working back from a two-week layoff because of back soreness and says he is glad he has two more weeks left this preseason to hone his timing.
''It's one of those things at this time I'm not worried about it,'' Bironas said.

Tennessee Titan safety George Wilson was hit with a $15,000 fine after tackling Bengals running back Daniel Herron by the collar in the fourth quarter Saturday, reports Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- For the first time since the start of Tennessee Titans training camp in late July, Gregg Williams was made available to the media just prior to the start of Wednesday's practice.
According to Williams, that choice of media access, or the lack thereof, has been his and his alone, despite multiple requests from various media outlets the past few weeks for collective...
Kendall Wright and Akeem Ayers were both carted off the field in the Tennessee Titans' preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. Either player missing a significant amount of time could impact the team this season; however, the injuries weren't as serious as they first seemed, team writer, Craig Peters, reported on Sunday.
Wright was having a great game with...

Our final stop on the defense on our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we approach the 2013 regular season is a look at the safeties.
Last offseason, the Titans were facing having to potentially replace both of their starting safeties. They ended up not...
One of the Tennessee Titans top free agent acquisitions this offseason has spent the entire training camp on the team's PUP list because of arthroscopic surgery on his left knee he underwent just before camp. According to ESPN, Delanie Walker passed his physical and returned to practice on Monday. Walker is a welcomed site for a team that already lost starting tight end, Jared...
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker has blamed himself for the death of his aunt and uncle.
He isn't at fault. They died from a preventable mistake made by someone else.
Walker, though, has put himself in the shoes of Nechole Thomas. She is charged with two counts of vehicular homicide and driving while intoxicated after plowing into the stopped car of Alice and Bryan...
Programming note: I may not have/make time to finish going through the second preseason game until Saturday afternoon, so no post on that.
We conclude our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we approach the 2013 regular season with a look at the special teams.
I went through this in the offseason positional analysis, but special teams is kind of an odd...
