Carlos Hyde Is Titans’ Best Option At RB

Daryl Ruiter CBS Cleveland Ken Whisenhunt understands that Chris Johnson was still somewhat effective in Tennessee before being cut this off-season, but he also understands the importance to bring in a guy with a combination of both speed and power.  He also understands that he needs to bring in a running back in this draft class to avoid a terrible offensive season in 2014, which...

Power Rankings: Tennessee Titans offense nearly the worst in NFL

The old adage is that “defense wins championships.” But more and more, that sounds like a cliché being echoed by a coach, analyst or fan intent on living in the past. Nowadays, offense makes the difference; at least most of the time. Looking for proof? Take a look at the teams that made the playoffs last season. The 12 teams who made the postseason all finished in the top-18...

Could Tennessee Titans trade back and land “Johnny Football”?

As the NFL Draft steadily approaches, the Tennessee Titans are surely exhausting all of their options which should include trading back to recoup a third rounder lost in the swap for Justin Hunter last year. According to ESPN’s Mark Dominik, as transcribed by Rotoworld, Johnny Manziel will “fall a little more than people think.” Dominik went on to note that Manziel could drop...

Tennessee Titans | Best & Worst Case Scenario for Round 1 of the NFL Draft

Many have the Titans pegged to go defense with the 11th overall pick. But it will b VERY interesting to see what happens if a top quarterback falls in their laps. With the loss of Verner it is tough to see them pass on a top corner in Gilbert/Dennard but they could also have guys like Mosely, Clinton-Dix, Barr, and Pryor staring them in the face at 11. Below are a few guys I feel...

Mocking the Mock: Who will Tennessee take in the NFL Draft?

ESPN’s resident analyst, Mel Kiper Jr., tossed out his most recent mock draft just a few days ago with the Tennessee Titans shifting things around with two interesting selections. At No. 11, Kiper has Tennessee drafting defensive back Justin Gilbert. Reaction:  I’m not in love with the pick.

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...

Dexter McCluster's skills wow Titans teammates

If any Titans player can offer a good scouting report of running back/wide receiver Dexter McCluster, it's probably fellow free-agent signee Shaun Phillips. That's because the veteran linebacker spent part of the past four seasons – three in San Diego and one in Denver – trying to tackle McCluster, who played for the AFC West rival Chiefs during that stretch.

Analyzing Dexter McCluster, running back ☆

When the Titans made Dexter McCluster their first signing of free agency this offseason, I noted he had played both wide receiver and running back in the NFL, and noted Whisenhunt’s challenge was to make him a more effective player than he had been. Since then, the Titans have indicated McCluster will at least start off playing more running back than wide receiver. To get a better...
