2014 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: OT

After quarterback, running back, fullback, wide receiver, and tight end, the next stop on our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head toward the start of the 2014 regular season is offensive tackle. For years, offensive tackle was the easiest, least interesting positional analysis to write. From 2007 to 2012, you could pretty much write in pen the name at...

Titans Preseason Countdown: #76 David Stewart

With only 76 days until the Tennessee Titans’ 2014 Preseason Kickoff, we continue our Preseason Countdown. Today, we look at the meanest and nastiest offensive lineman in recent Titans’ history: right tackle, “Big Country” David Stewart.“Big Country” did not earn his nickname for nothing, standing at 6’7”, 315 pounds.

Titans select OT Taylor Lewan with 11th pick

Well, I wasn’t expecting that one. With their own first-round pick, 11th overall, in the 2014 NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans took Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan. Offensive tackle was an obvious need position with David Stewart’s decline in 2013, but after they signed Michael Oher to a big-money free agent deal I thought the chances of them spending a high pick on an...

And the second surge has come and gone, with players and teams who decided to be patient, checking out the total landscape, having made decisions. Now, the NFL appears to be in somewhat of a waiting period. Teams have...

Tennessee Titans: An Offensive Lining

After the struggles on the offensive line in the past two seasons, during this offseason, the Titans started looking for new coaching options at the offensive line position. The Titans parted ways with Hall of Famer, Bruce Matthews, after his many years with the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Titans organization. It was hard to part ways with an All-Pro offensive lineman like himself...

Titans release RT David Stewart

The Titans today made official a move pretty much everyone expected, releasing longtime starting tackle David Stewart. A fourth round pick out of Mississippi State in 2005, Stewart stepped into the starting lineup early in the 2006 season at right tackle as part of a general offensive line shuffling and never looked back. He would start 104 of the next 106 games for the Titans...

Titans Play It Safe Signing Michael Oher

Michael Oher is as widely known as any player in all of sports. His off the field narrative is considerably more cogent than his actual performance on the field. Since entering the league in 2009 Oher consistently ranks near the worst at his position and is the most frequently penalized player in the NFL, according to Andrew Powell-Morse http://www.bestticke.../nfl-penalties/‎...

Why the Titans Should Sign Michael Oher

Michael Oher's 2013 statistics are horrendous. He allowed a team-high 8 sacks, and he graded as PFF's worst run blocker out of linemen that played at least 50% of his team's snaps. But why should the Titans sign him if he's so bad?1. The Titans don't have many optionsWith David Stewart out, the Titans only option at right tackle right now is Byron Stingily.

Assessing the free agent OT class from a Titans perspective

With longtime swing man Mike Otto a free agent and David Stewart a possible cap casualty/retirement candidate after an injury-plagued 2013 seasons, right tackle definitely seems like a position the Titans could choose to address in free agency. It is not quite as obvious to me that they will in fact do so compared to, e.g., tight end and guard, which I previewed before free agency...

The 2013 Titans: Still older on offense, still young on defense

Back in 2011, the Titans were an interesting combination of very old on offense and very young on defense. In 2012, things changed somewhat-the Titans got somewhat younger on offense, but were still older than average. On defense, they were older than they were in 2011, but were still one of the younger teams in the league. In 2013, the Titans were basically the same age they were...
