Looking at the Titans’ fourth quarter play-calling

The Titans got the ball with 6:49 to play clinging to a 28-22 lead. They called three straight pass plays, in a situation where many teams would look to run the ball and burn time off the clock. After punting following the three-and-out, they again called three straight pass plays, the third of which actually converted. Asked about calling so many pass plays in that situation at...

First team offense improved as Titans fall to Saints, 31-24

Pardon the dilatory and abbreviated nature of this recap. As I noted in my preview post, other obligations this evening and weekend prevented me from viewing the game with my usual attention and promptness. Namely, I saw from the late first quarter until later in the third. From what I saw and by all accounts I’ve read, Jake Locker’s performance was a highlight as he led the...

Titans' Oher motivated for matchup with Saints

NEW ORLEANS (AP) The last time Michael Oher played in New Orleans, he was a first-string tackle for the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. He returns less than two years later on Friday night for a preseason game as a member of the Tennessee Titans, trying to prove he remains worthy of a starting job in the NFL. Oher joined Tennessee this season on a four-year deal, but the Titans...

Michael Oher is tired of getting disrespected

Titans offensive tackle Michael Oher says his critics don’t know what they’re talking about, and he’s sick of it. Asked about speculation that Oher might end up on the bench behind rookie first-round draft pick Taylor Lewan, Oher said he hasn’t heard it. And then he proceeded to indicate that he has heard it, and he doesn’t appreciate it.

2014 Tennessee Titans preseason positional analysis: OT

After quarterback, running back, fullback, wide receiver, and tight end, the next stop on our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head toward the start of the 2014 regular season is offensive tackle. For years, offensive tackle was the easiest, least interesting positional analysis to write. From 2007 to 2012, you could pretty much write in pen the name at...

Debunking Tennessee Titans’ presence on All-Bad Contract Team

The Tennessee Titans have been fairly free-spending with their money in recent years, which in some cases can be a bad thing. When you’re able to sign top-tier guys to solid deals, the team is flaunted as doing everything they can to win. When bad deals happen, management is described as spending too freely without an end goal in mind. Grantland.com’s Bill Barnwell created the...

I love…Taylor Lewan being ready for any situation

When the Tennessee Titans selected Taylor Lewan at No. 11, it turned some heads with Michael Roos and Michael Oher already on the roster. While Roos is likely gone next summer, the Titans are preparing for the worst, which means they want him to be able to play both left and right tackle, according to the Tennessean: “I know this for sure, Taylor has to be able to play both sides...

Titans might have one good tackle too many

The Titans have their own version of musical chairs, otherwise known as the starting tackle positions. When free agent Michael Oher was signed March 14, it appeared the offensive line bookends were set — with nine-year starter Michael Roos on the left side and five-year starter Oher on the right. But when the Titans picked tackle Taylor Lewan in the first round of the draft May...

Can Taylor Lewan be a top-10 left tackle?

Taylor Lewan, the third-best rated tackle in the draft, plummeted to the Tennessee Titans at No. 11. Everything had to fall in the right place for Lewan to fall to Tennessee and it happened, so what next? Michael Roos and Michael Oher seem to have the left and right tackle positions respectively locked down. Lewan will have his shot during camp and throughout the regular season,...

Titans Play It Safe Signing Michael Oher

Michael Oher is as widely known as any player in all of sports. His off the field narrative is considerably more cogent than his actual performance on the field. Since entering the league in 2009 Oher consistently ranks near the worst at his position and is the most frequently penalized player in the NFL, according to Andrew Powell-Morse http://www.bestticke.../nfl-penalties/‎...

Michael Oher had the worst year of his 5-year career last year, as the 2009 1st round pick graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 68th ranked offensive tackle out of 76 eligible on the right side in Baltimore. Oher has actually regressed in almost every season as a pro. He had a strong rookie year, grading out 15th at his position, but then went 40th, 38th, 57th, and then, of course...

Can Michael Oher turn his career around in Tennessee?

Friday, the Tenenssee Titans signed free agent offensive tackle Michael Oher to a massive four-year, $20 million deal with $9.5 million guaranteed.
