NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt will be honored before the Tennessee Titans' season opener Sunday against the New England Patriots. Summitt will be recognized as the "12th Titan" before the game. Titans' owner Bud Adams will donate 25,000 to the Pat Summitt Foundation in an effort to raise awareness and find a cure for Alzheimer's disease. Summitt stepped down as Tennessee's coach in April after leading the Lady Vols to eight national titles in 38 seasons. She announced in August 2011 that she has early-onset dementia. Summitt remains at the university as head coach emeritus. Her 1,098 career wins are the most of any men's or women's basketball coach in NCAA history.

I hope everybody had a nice Labor Day weekend. The NFL season proper starts tomorrow, and the Titans of course kickoff their season Sunday at home against the Patriots.

2012 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: DE

  We continue our look around the Titans position by position as we approach the 2012 regular season with a look at the defensive ends.   The Titans weren't good enough at defensive end in 2011. That's not a bold statement. The primary job of the defensive end for pretty much every 4-3 team is to rush the passer. The Titans were terrible at rushing the passer...

2012 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: MLB

  We continue our trip around the Titans position by position on the eve of the 2012 regular season with a look at the middle linebackers.   The Barrett Ruud Experience is mercifully over. The Titans signed the much-maligned former Tampa Bay linebacker last offseason to fill the starter, and even people like me who though Ruud got too much blame last year weren&...

KSK 2012 NFL Prekkake: Tennessee Titans

The Titans showed initial promise under Mike Munchak’s campaign of dressing nice and not giving sassback to your elders. Tennessee got off to a 3-1 start last season before settling right around the .500 mark for the rest of the season. Even though Tennessee had taken Jake Locker in the draft a year before, the team courted Peyton Manning aggressively in free agency, even going...

2012 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: CB

  Next up on our tour of the Titans position by position as we rapidly approach the beginning of their 2012 regular season is the cornerbacks.   I wrote in the offseason positional analysis that I thought cornerback was the Titans' strongest defensive position in 2011. I'm much less certain that will be the case in 2012, thanks to the loss of Cortland Finnegan...

AP Pro32 comments about Titans

Comments on the Tennessee Titans by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses): --- TENNESSEE TITANS (21) Chris Berman (ESPN, 19) - Hope that Locker watching Hasselbeck will work like Rodgers watching Favre. Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 20) - Last year they went 9-7, but were largely overlooked outside Nashville. I see a similar scenario in 2012. Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports...
