Tennessee Titans defensive end Shaun Phillips named top-20 in NFL

When cover32 released its list of the top 10 defensive ends in the NFL today, there were some people angry about their favorite team’s top pass rusher not making the list. It made for a bit of spirited debate in the “Comments” section below the article. And it also begged another question: How close was Mr. Irate Fan’s DE to making the list? To provide an answer, the editors...

Titans notebook: LB Shaun Phillips finds comfort in 3-4 scheme

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- After playing nine years at outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense for the Chargers, Shaun Phillips felt out of place last season playing defensive end in a 4-3 alignment for the Broncos. Sure, he helped the Broncos win the AFC championship and make the Super Bowl with a team-high 10 sacks, but he never felt fully comfortable in the new position. After signing a...

How Shaun Phillips sacked the passer in 2013 ☆

To get a better idea of what the Titans got when they signed Shaun Phillips, I decided to watch the 10.0 sacks he had playing for the Broncos in 2013. While the Broncos are more of a 4-3 than I expect the Titans to be, I still think this was a useful exercise. Philips played 770 snaps (68% of the time), which is probably a good estimate of the maximum for his expected 2014 playing...

Tennessee Titans sign OLB Shaun Phillips

Shaun Phillips looked done after the 2013 season, going into his age 32 season after grading out as Pro Football Focus’ 2nd worst ranked 3-4 outside linebacker.

He’s still no guarantee...

Which top free agent would help Denver’s defensive line?

It doesn’t take an astute football observer to see the Denver Broncos’ pass-rush was lacking in their Super Bowl XLVIII loss. It also can’t be missed that Denver’s defense was without their best pass-rusher in Von Miller, who was injured during the season and missed the stretch run as well as the playoff push. Shaun Phillips did well this year to fill in for Elvis Dumervil...
