Dexter McCluster ready for hitting with Titans

When Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt was asked about Dexter McCluster's impressive running on the first day of training camp, he offered praise – but tossed in one additional comment. "The big thing next for him is going to be when we get into a game, can he shake those tackles and can he get those positive yards?" Whisenhunt said. "I've seen him do it on tape...

Griffin says Titans are a “different team” now

After a failed 2013 season, Titans tight end Delanie Walker claimed that six or seven of his teammates were cancers, sparking a stream of reactions as people like coach Ken Whisenhunt said the concerns should have been kept in house, cornerback Jason McCourty and receiver Nate Washington said Walker should have called a team meeting, and now-former Titans running back Chris Johnson...

Whisenhunt, Washington rejoin in Tennessee with opportunistic playbook

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The first time the paths of Tennessee Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt and wide receiver Nate Washington crossed, they were sporting the black and gold of the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was 2005, and Whisenhunt was offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh, while Washington was an undrafted rookie who bounced between the regular roster and practice squad. A year later,...

2014 preseason positional analysis: QB

As is our custom, we begin our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head in the direction of the regular season with a look at the quarterbacks. When I did the offseason version of this little exercise, there was still at least a theoretical question as to whether Jake Locker would head into the 2014 regular season as the presumptive starting quarterback....

Lewan's path to playing time as a rookie could be at guard

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Titans rookie offensive lineman Taylor Lewan doesn't know where he stands on the depth chart. He doesn't even know what position he'll play once the regular season arrives. That's just fine by him. It is common practice for NFL teams to forego publishing a depth chart denoting starters and backups at the start of training camp. As he...

Ken Whisenhunt applauds Zach Mettenberger's restraint

By all accounts, Titans rookies Zach Mettenberger and Taylor Lewan did nothing wrong last weekend when Mettenberger was sucker-punched at Losers Most Wanted Bar & Grill. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he's talked to both players. "It's important how our players represent our team in this community," Whisenhunt said on Friday during a press conference at Saint Thomas...

Tennessee Titans in win-now mode

This is not a rebuilding year, he said — Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) July 25, 2014 While Tennessee has hovered around the 6-8, 9-7 marks each year, it hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2008, when the Titans lost...

53-man roster prediction as training camp opens

It’s an annual rite. The Tennessee Titans begin training camp, and I try to predict which players they’ll keep after the cutdown to 53. Some years this goes kind of okay, other years I end up on quixotic quests and stick on them long after it becomes obvious they are indeed quixotic quests (see, e.g., my attempts to cut Nate Washington last year). Most years, I’m happy to...

Ken Whisenhunt and fourth downs

I chronicled all of Mike Munchak’s fourth down decisions last year, but never posted anything here about it after the season ended since Munchak won’t be making any more fourth down calls for the Titans. What will matter for the 2014 Titans is what Ken Whisenhunt does on fourth downs. As an offensive coordinator last year, my presumption is he didn’t make any of the decisions...

Ken Whisenhunt Looking to Repeat History

Let's look at Whisenhunt's first year with every team he either coached as an OC or a HC. Looking at what the teams did the prior year before he joined the staff looks good for Tennessee. Nothing is guaranteed of course but can history still continue itself with Whisenhunt as he takes on his second stint as a Head Coach for the Tennessee Titans? We will see, but let's...

Tennessee Titans 2014: 5 Most Pressing Questions Heading Into Training Camp

Here is something Tennessee Titans thought they may never hear – Mike Munchak has left the building.

Power Rankings: Tennessee Titans rated as a top-15 potential Super Bowl host

In early February, Super Bowl XLVIII was played in the New York / New Jersey area, the first time the big game had been played outdoors in a cold-weather market.

Just a few days ago I posted a story detailing Ken Whisenhunt’s training and development of Jake Locker as a pocket passer.

ESPN followed that up with a tier ranking of all 32 starting quarterbacks. The results...
