The Tennessee Titans' Most Intriguing Signing

The Tennessee Titans were “quiet” in the first week of free agency. Football minds understand the value of retaining Derrick Morgan and the potential of a healthy Brian Orakpo. No, the team did not land Ndamukong Suh, DeMarco Murray, or Devin McCourty.

Tennessee Titans sign S Da’Norris Searcy

Searcy was a 4th round pick by the Bills in 2011 NFL Draft. He played just 511 snaps in his first 2 seasons in 2011 and 2012, but he made 20 starts over the past 2 seasons as a hybrid safety/linebacker. He’s never played more than 753 snaps in a season, but he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 18th ranked safety in 2014 (on 666 snaps), so I expected someone would give him starter’s...

As a fan, we put our faith in the latter (as analysts, maybe not, but this is a fan blog and sometimes we just have to say … screw it). This series is for the optimists (homers) in all of us, as well as the dark part of us that wants to shame opponents in every way...

Titans' Pollard: ‘I wouldn’t root for this team either’

It's been anything but a rousing season in the Music City. The Tennessee Titans, sitting near the AFC South basement, are reeling. They've lost three consecutive games, each by 16 points or more.
