There is no question the Titans must run the football significantly better the rest of the season to contend for an AFC South title but they need to catch it better, too, the way Pro Football Weekly hears it. Offensive coordinator Chris Palmer laid into second-year WR Damian Williams following his team's Week Five loss to Pittsburgh, saying Williams did not hustle on a deep pattern. Williams is second on the team in TD catches (two), but word is he and teammate Lavelle Hawkins have not risen to the occasion in the absence of No. 1 WR Kenny Britt. Tennessee signed former Rams speedster Donnie Avery last month, and we hear he will have his opportunities as the season progresses. But the onus falls more on Williams and Hawkins, both of whom know the offense better than Avery and have the tools to be successful if they can find more consistency. Source: Pro Football Weekly

Slumping Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson insisted that he wasn't the source of the team's anemic ground game after he was booed early and often by the home fans while being held to 18 yards on 10 carries in Tennessee's 41-7 loss to the Houston Texans Sunday. "I feel like I've been back," Johnson said, refuting reports from Titan Insider that...
The Titans didn’t show up yesterday for their biggest game of the year, showing an utter lack of heart….and it showed on the scoreboard. Matt Hasselbeck was awful in this game as he completed 14 of 30 passes for 104 yards with 1 TD pass and 2 INTs (Texans’ CB Brice McCain returned one of the INTs 38 yards for a TD). Jake Locker made a brief appearance in which he completed...
BRINGING THE PAIN
Don’t get tackled by the kicker. That’s the rule on kick and punt returns. Pick a spot and go, and don’t get tackled by the Kicker. Nobody ever blocks the kicker because they aren’t really football players. Somebody forgot to tell Neil Rackers that he was just a kicker.
A nice cherry on the top of the butt-whoopin that the Titans received from the Texans yesterday was...
After Chris Johnson’s latest embarrassing show on Sunday, the Titans running back said that he “wasn’t the issue.” “If you are watching the game and you can’t tell what’s going on with the run game then I’d say you really don’t know football,” Johnson said. Some reasonable minds disagree. Terry McCormick of TitanInsider reports that…
Since signing his $53.3 million contract this summer, Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has has 93 carries for just 268 yards.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans spent their bye week trying to fix their run game.
Now, they have even more work to do.
The Titans finished with a season-low 148 yards on offense, Chris Johnson ran just 10 times for 18 yards and the defense missed tackles all over Sunday in a 41-7 rout by the Houston Texans.
Their second straight loss pushed the Titans (3-3) out...
The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt reports the Titans have "no plans" to send a representative to free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens' open workout on Tuesday. Coach Mike Munchak opined last week that the Titans may "take a look" at Owens, but later added the team had no specific plans to do so. It's possible that could change if Damian Williams...
