Tennessee Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst initially made up the story that he lost his No. 6 to punter Brett Kern in an arm-wrestling match on Wednesday.

Titans QB Loses Arm-Wrestling Match With Punter For Jersey Number

Newly-signed Titans QB Charlie Whitehurst has worn #6 his entire NFL career. Unfortunately for him, that number was already taken by punter Brett Kern. Since Whitehurst is a third-stringer not bringing in the big bucks, buying a jersey number like most NFL players do was not an option. So how did the QB and punter settle things? With an arm-wrestling contest of course. As a quarterback...

2014 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: ST

After rounding out our looks at the offense and defense, our final stop on our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head into the 2014 offseason is a look at special teams.

Field position and the Titans defense in 2013

After covering the offense earlier this week, I now turn my attention to how field position affected what the Titans did on defense this past season. Methodology is the same as last year and for the offense. Touchdowns are worth 7 points. Made field goals are worth 3 points. Missed field goals are worth 2 points. All other drives are worth 0 points. End of half/game drives where...

Titans annihilated by Packers, 55-7

Well, that was fun. By the time the Titans got a first down, they were down 14-0, if only because Randall Cobb failed to bring in two catchable passes. At halftime, it was 20-0. After the Packers had the ball five times on the second half, it was 55-0. Only a Jake Locker pass to Kenny Britt in the final two minutes of the game avoided the shutout. There's not a lot to say...
