In Depth 2015: Tennessee Titans

Ken Whisenhunt inherited a bit of a mess when he took over the Tennessee Titans in 2014, so maybe a rough season was not a surprise. But QB injuries, subpar offensive line play and almost everything else went off the rails for Tennessee last season. The result was a 2-14 record and the second pick in the draft. So how does this team start picking up the pieces in an effort to again...

On defense, Nashville’s team was among the bottom 6 in all major defensive statistics.While Delanie Walker had a breakout year, it wasn’t enough to manufacture points for the unit as a whole. Ken Whisenhunt’s offense didn’t seem to gel with personnel.Though the Titans...

Tennessee Titans: Bishop Sankey and Goliath

If you are a true red-blooded American, then you know the story of David and Goliath as much as you know the back of your hand. David was knee-high to a grasshopper, that is southern vernacular for being short. Even though David was a little fella, he had a nasty bite, one that was mean enough to take down a giant. When I look at Sankey (5’9” and 209 Ib.), I wonder if he is a...

Tennessee Titans owner Tommy Smith doesn’t fare well in Power Rankings

In any business, success or failure tends to trickle down from the top. This is certainly the case in the National Football League. Teams with solid ownership are the ones that inevitably compete for championships year in and year out, while franchises with less stable structures at the top are typically mired in mediocrity or stuck in the cellar. That’s what makes cover32′s...

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...

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: QB

Image courtesy of Jim Wyatt, of course. As we normally do, we begin our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head into the offseason with a look at the quarterback position. The question in the preseason, as it was for the previous preseason, was whether Jake Locker would (a) stay on the field long enough and (b) play well enough for the Titans to commit to...

Titans Officially Name Dick LeBeau Assistant Head Coach/Defense

As expected, the Tennessee Titans named former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau as their Assistant Head Coach/Defense on Thursday. LeBeau, who reportedly resigned his position with the Steelers a few weeks after the 2014 season ended, won’t be a stranger to several coaches on the Titans staff as head coach Ken Whisenhunt, defensive coordinator […] Titans...

Tennessee Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt gets skewered in latest Power Rankings

This week, cover32′s Buck Stanton used his weekly power rankings to break down and rate the NFL’s 32 head coaches. From best to worst, he ranks the men in charge of leading each franchise.

Tennessee Titans: Top 5 Free Agent Running Back Targets

One of the most exciting times in the NFL year is nearly here for the Tennessee Titans – the free agency period. Come March 10th, the Titans will begin trying to rebuild their 2-14 team into a playoff contender.

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...

Senior Bowl: QBs underwhelm, Whisenhunt reaches out to Mariota

MOBILE, Ala. -- Before the sun set on the first session at the Senior Bowl, the hot topic coming out of Titans practice wasn't a top prospect on the North team's squad. Tennessee head coach Ken Whisenhunt had his mind, at least partially so, on a prospect not in Mobile. Whisenhunt offered Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota a second invitation to attend the week-long practice sessions...

Field position and the Titans defense in 2014.

After covering the offense yesterday, I now turn my attention to how field position affected the Titans defense in 2014. Methodology is the same as for the offense and in past seasons. 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. Drives that finish the half where scoring is not the...
