Five draft picks why the Titans won’t make the playoffs

The Titans are still paying for taking bad quarterbacks in the top ten. Not once, but twice, over the course of the last nine years. Neither player panned out and they’ve already moved on to rookie Zach Mettenberger at this point. The Titans seem to be drafting better as of late so the jury is still out on how those players will develop, but their miserable season suggests they’re...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The nine-game test Zach Mettenberger wants to pass to become the Titans starting quarterback next season is hitting a mid-term exam. It's a return visit Sunday to the Texans (5-6), the team Mettenberger faced in his first start after replacing fourth-year veteran and oft-injured Jake Locker. The Titans (2-9) have lost all four of Mettenberger's starts...

Titans' Rookies Providing Silver Lining in Disappointing Season

The Tennessee Titans are in a much different position than most thought they would be in prior to this season. All we heard in training camp was how this was the year Jake Locker would solidify himself as the franchise quarterback. Teammates and coaches were backing him, and his play justified it. We were all ready to go to war with Locker in his contract year.Then, to the surprise...

As new players climb into starting roles, Titans begin youth movement

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- For the first time since the AFL/NFL merger in 1970, the Oilers turned Titans started a rookie quarterback, running back and left tackle in the same game. That nod to the future will become more pronounced as the Titans play their final six games. At 2-8, they need to win them all to prevent a third-straight losing season and fourth in five years.

Remember when Jake Locker was a Thing?

Seriously... how many endangered birds live in Keisel's beard? 48? 59? 1,085? Mike Tomlin is 1-8 all-time against teams with a winning percentage of 0.200 or worse. Lucky for him and the Steelers, the Titans had a 0.285 winning percentage coming into last night's Monday Night Football game. And since mathematics are unquestioned around these parts, mainly because I don...

Titans-Ravens inactives, preview thoughts

So, I had this idea for a long, hopefully interesting post on what to expect from the second half of the Titans season, a season that looks lost and for which I indicated a record of 2-6 like the first-half record is likely, unless the team starts playing a lot better. What are the goals for the second half of the season, then? Play young players, sure, that’s great, but they...
