Predicting the Future for the Titans Key Free Agents

View image | gettyimages.com The Tennessee Titans face a very important off season for the franchise. The Titans are coming off their worse season since moving to Nashville and have been very mediocre since their 13-3 record in 2008. The Titans have already made some off season moves, most notably hiring legendary coach Dick Lebeau. It is no secret that many players admire Lebeau...

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...

How the Titans Targeted Their Receivers in 2014

After last week’s look at running back usage, I thought I should look at how the Titans used their other non-quarterback offensive “skill position” players. Since outside of Kendall Wright they did not get any carries, I will begin with a chart.

Catching Up With James Coleman: From Short Yardage Specialist to Performance Specialist

From 2002-05, there was no player Florida State looked to more often in short yardage situations than Tallahassee native and fullback James Coleman. Coleman finished his Florida State career with just a 2.6 yards-per-carry average, but scored seven touchdowns over his final two seasons including the lone Seminole touchdown in a 10-7 victory over Miami on Labor Day in 2005 to snap...

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...

By any measure, Titans have struggled to run ball

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Ground it down to any statistic, and the Tennessee Titans haven't been able to run the ball well at all this season. They are assured of finishing without a 1,000-yard rusher for the first time since 2005. They rank 28th in the NFL, averaging only 87 yards a game, and are 23rd averaging 3.9 yards per carry. Nobody has run for 100 yards in a single game with...

WATCH: Tennessee Titans RB Leon Washington With the Sweetest Moment of Thursday Night's Gamee

Leon Washington at one time was the guy you wanted to watch every time he got his hands on the ball, but that's not the case so much anymore. He's not lightning in a bottle like he used to be, but he is still a capable return man/running back. H just needs a chance to prove it.He got just such a chance Thursday night against the Jaguars, and even got the Titans on the board first...

Titans keep draft position intact by blowing lead to Jaguars, lose 21-13

It was a dog of a game, subjected to national ridicule and promoted as little as any prime time game in recent memory. It ended up being one of the most competitive Thursday Night Football games of the season, within one score for most of the game and in some doubt until the final play, when the Titans failed to force overtime. In the end, the Jaguars walked away with a 21-13 victory...

Whitehurst completed all six of his passes and capped an 84-yard drive with a 8-yard scoring pass to Jacksonville native Leon Washington as the Titans built a 7-0 lead after one quarter.

Jets top Titans in expected slopfest, 16-11

With a pair of 2-11 teams facing off at LP Field, it seemed like ugly football was on the menu. Ugly football was what the Tennessee Titans and the New York Jets delivered. Contrary to what could have happened, though, it was a surprisingly compelling slopfest. Neither team led by more than five points at any time in the game, and it went down to the final play. The Titans had two...

Tennessee Titans Collapse in Baltimore to Ravens

The Tennessee Titans had a perfect opportunity to pick up their third win of the 2 season in Baltimore against the Ravens, but let it slip out of their fingers. The Titans (2-7) drove down the field in the first drive, only to have running back Shonn Greene fumble on the goal line, giving the ball back to the Ravens (6-4), and he never stepped back on the field.

Great first quarter, three more familiar quarters as Titans fall to Ravens 21-7

The headline says it all. The Tennessee Titans came out and played most of a great first quarter. The offensive line in particular was very strong against a good Ravens front seven. For the first time all year, they looked like the strength of the team and one of the league’s best units. It wasn’t all sunshine-and-roses, as a Shonn Greene fumble at the goalline meant they didn’t...

Titans need more out of all those running backs

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans are literally running into a problem with their offense. So far, they haven't been able to run the ball effectively, and the offense hasn't stayed on the field long enough for any of the rushers in their running back-by-committee to really produce. The Titans have only four touchdowns rushing with running backs scoring two of those. They...
