Gambling to hit QB has Titans struggling vs. run

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Titans defensive coordinator Ray Horton has been gambling, calling all sorts of blitzes and stunts trying to pressure the quarterback. Well, that approach has its risks, and the Titans are paying the price. The Titans have dropped to the bottom of the NFL in run defense, giving up 145.4 yards per game. Now Tennessee (2-9) is preparing to head to Houston where...

Isaiah Burse has enough burst in the return game

The 2014 Denver Broncos have addressed many of the issues that plagued this team in the off season. No Eric Decker? Let’s get Emmanuel Sanders and draft Cody Latimer. No Shaun Phillips or Champ Bailey? Let’s get DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib. But what happened to our return man? Trindon Holliday is gone and has yet to be replaced. Who can fill his shoes however small they may...

Linebacker surplus should help Titans' transition to 3-4 defense

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- They might need to add a few more seats to the crowded Titans linebackers room. Two free-agent signees, one draft pick and two position changes -- plus the return of a slew of veterans -- has the competition for linebacker roster spots shaping up to be the tightest on the team. So it goes for the Titans as they transition from a 4-3 basic defensive set to a 3...

Denver Broncos - Remaining Free Agent Fits?

Each year teams tend to sign a few free agents around draft time or training camp to help fill depth needs. This has held true for the Broncos the past few season with the signings of Keith Brooking, Jim Leonhard, Brandon Stokely, Justin Bannan, Paris Lennon, Quentin Jammer, Shaun Phillips and Ryan Lilja.

Titans notebook: LB Shaun Phillips finds comfort in 3-4 scheme

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- After playing nine years at outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense for the Chargers, Shaun Phillips felt out of place last season playing defensive end in a 4-3 alignment for the Broncos. Sure, he helped the Broncos win the AFC championship and make the Super Bowl with a team-high 10 sacks, but he never felt fully comfortable in the new position. After signing a...

How Shaun Phillips sacked the passer in 2013 ☆

To get a better idea of what the Titans got when they signed Shaun Phillips, I decided to watch the 10.0 sacks he had playing for the Broncos in 2013. While the Broncos are more of a 4-3 than I expect the Titans to be, I still think this was a useful exercise. Philips played 770 snaps (68% of the time), which is probably a good estimate of the maximum for his expected 2014 playing...

Tennessee Titans sign OLB Shaun Phillips

Shaun Phillips looked done after the 2013 season, going into his age 32 season after grading out as Pro Football Focus’ 2nd worst ranked 3-4 outside linebacker. He had to settle for a one year deal close to the veteran’s minimum with the Broncos, but he was able to rehab his value, grading out as Pro Football Focus’ 18th ranked 4-3 defensive end in 2013. He’s still no guarantee...

Broncos: Is Depth Becoming an Issue?

There had been no news, outside of speculation, from the Broncos concerning Knowhon Moreno or Shaun Phillips leading up to this week. Now, I generally take no news as good news; however, during the free agency period, no news is a harbinger for bad news. This proved to be correct as both Moreno and Phillips signed with other teams. Moreno had a great season last year, make no mistake...
