Evaluating the Titans Roster: Running Backs

I recently wrote that the Titans group of running backs is one of the least productive crews in the league. Not much has changed in the group over the offseason, which leads to asking whether or not they’ll improve in 2015. I think they’ll improve, but just how much is the question. That’s what we’ll be taking a look at today. Dexter McCluster View image | gettyimages...

Who Will Emerge as Titans Returners in 2015?

2014 was a down year for the Tennessee Titans return game. There was plenty of hope going into the season with veteran special teams ace Leon Washington returning for a second season, and the addition of electric punt returner Dexter McCluster.After playing five games with the Titans in 2013, which saw Washington average 30.1 yards per return and a long of 95 yards, Washington nearly...

Is Chris Johnson considering a reunion with the Titans?

Chris Johnson was one of the Tennessee Titans most prolific running backs in the post Eddie George era. Now, the former 2,000-yard rusher is without a home and looking for work anywhere he can find it. Is a CJ2K – Nashville reunion on the cards? The Titans’ have a rather lackluster depth chart at the running back position. Dexter McCluster is a play-specialized running back,...

Tennessee Titans will have a new backfield in 2015

Running back is a position of focus for the Tennessee Titans in the 2015 season. The Titans finished with the 26th best (worst) rush attack last season in the NFL.  Tennessee totaled 1,447 yards on the ground last season, averaging 90.4 yards per game. These statistics need to improve if the Titans want to contest for the AFC South crown. A solid rush attack will also help take...

Will Dexter McCluster ever find his fit in Tennessee?

With an offense that was out-gained by their opponents in pretty much every offensive category you could think of in 2014, the Titans need potential weapons to step up. One of the Titans that can provide their offense with a certain spark or x-factor in 2015, could be the versatile Dexter McCluster.

De'Anthony Thomas Will Be Kansas City Chiefs' New X Factor

When the Kansas City Chiefs lost Dexter Mccluster in the 2014 off-season, the search was on for a dynamic player that could bring the team a spark. The following season didn't exactly fill the highlight reel, but it may have given us a preview of the next great game-changer in Arrowhead in De'Anthony Thomas.When Thomas was drafted in the 4th round by the Chiefs, he had already earned...

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: RB

After our customary first stop at quarterback, our next stop as we travel around the Tennessee Titans position by position heading into the 2015 offseason is a look at the running back position. For the previous five seasons, the story of the Titans at running back was simple: it was the story of Chris Johnson. 2014 brought his departure and the change to a committee. Instead of...

2014 Tennessee Titans Review: Running Backs

In this week’s edition of positional review for the Tennessee Titans, I bring to you the running backs.The Titans had a pretty lackluster season overall, and the run game was no exception. With so many troubles plaguing the passing game, Titans fans could only hope that the run game would pick up the offensive slack this season. Needless to say, that did not happen.Going into 2014...

My predicted Titans RB usage against the Titans’ actual running back usage

So, back before the regular season began, I wrote a bunch of things about the Tennessee Titans. Some of them ended up being relatively close to accurate. Others were quite inaccurate. Since it turned into a theme of sorts, I thought today I would look at my predictions for how the Titans would use their running backs versus how they actually did use their running backs. I don’t...

Titans using 4 running backs to replace Johnson

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Dexter McCluster could hear the Chiefs yelling, making sure each knew the speedster was on the field for the Titans. Rookie Bishop Sankey noticed defenders taking advantage of a timeout to see who Tennessee had in the huddle.

McCluster appreciates that the Chiefs 'didn't try to blow smoke up my tail'

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- No smoke. No baloney. No hard feelings, either. "It came down to the last minute," Dexter McCluster said Wednesday when asked about the Kansas City Chiefs, the only NFL organization -- and family -- he'd ever known until six months ago. "But one thing that I thanked them for was being honest. They didn't try to blow smoke up my tail." Short version: No. 22 preferred...

Tennessee Titans Fantasy Football Outlook

For the first time since the 2007 season, someone not named Chris Johnson will lead the Tennessee Titans in rushing yards. Will it be rookie Bishop Sankey, the Titans 2nd round pick out of Washington, or will it be veteran Shonn Greene, who saw just 77 carries last season backing up Johnson? The RB production will most likely be just fine, but it is a crucial season for QB Jake...

VIDEO: Kansas City Chiefs rookie De’Anthony Thomas burns Bengals

One of the bigger question marks this season for the Kansas City Chiefs is how to replace the production of running back Dexter McCluster, who signed a three-year deal with the Titans back in March. Of course it wasn’t his work in the backfield that the Chiefs might be missing. During the 2013 season McCluster led all NFL punt returners with 686 return yards and two touchdowns...
