What are the odds? Titans at Seahawks

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

It was a brutal opening weekend for the Tennessee Titans — no getting around it. The team looked rusty after not getting any playing time for most of the starters during the preseason, while they also battled a mini COVID outbreak during camp, causing several key members of the offense to miss time on the practice field.

The result was an absolute thumping by the Arizona Cardinals. The offensive line was nothing short of a disaster, which killed any...

Is this the worst defense you could possibly call?

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Shane Bowen was the Titans' defensive coordinator last season...unless he wasn’t. The nonsense of not naming Bowen the DC while he was calling the plays and performing most, if not all, of the duties a DC would perform was put to rest when Mike Vrabel gave him the title this offseason. Of course that didn’t make any of us feel any better after how bad the defense was last season.

We saw more of the same issues on Sunday. While the bigger...

Around the AFC South: Week 1

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Week 1 in the AFC South went just like we thought it would, right? The Texans emerged as the only team with a win. Now, they obviously had the weakest opponent, but still, the Texans were supposed to be in full-on tank mode. I thought they had a shot to be the first team to ever go 0-17. Instead, they rolled the Jaguars. Poor Urbs is probably just a couple of weeks away from having another fake health scare. You think they can’t ruin Trevor Lawrence?...

Mike Vrabel “called out” Julio Jones yesterday

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

A lot was made yesterday about Mike Vrabel’s response when asked about the Julio Jones personal foul call. Vrabel called it was “dumb sh*t that hurts the team in bold letters.” Here’s the clip from Paul Kuharsky:

Mike Vrabel harshly critical of Julio Jones for ‘dumb’ penalty

Julio Jones had a forgettable debut with the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, and his most crucial mistake was a mental one. Mike Vrabel is not letting his Pro Bowl receiver off the hook for it.

Where’s the play-action, Todd?

George Walker IV / Tennessean.com via Imagn Content Services, LLC

It is hard to imagine a worse debut for Todd Downing as the offensive play-caller for the Titans than what we saw yesterday. He took over an offense that was one of the best in the league last year that also added a stud wide receiver in Julio Jones. Now, Jones did more to hurt the team than help it yesterday, but the issues with Downing were still there.

The biggest issue, as Steven Ruiz pointed out over at the Ringer,...

Next Gen Stats paints ugly picture of Titans’ Week 1 pass protection woes

Photo by Silas Walker/Getty Images

The Titans started their 2021 season in nightmare fashion on Sunday after getting blown out by the Cardinals to the tune of 38-13.

Tennessee entered the game with a lot of hype after acquiring Julio Jones and Bud Dupree in the offseason, but to say they failed to live up to expectations would be an understatement. The Titans were poor in all three phases of the game. It should be a busy week of practice. They have a ton of issues to correct before...

Is it too early for Titans to move on from Michael Badgley?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The curse lives. For the third year in a row, the Titans have started the regular season with an issue at kicker. Former Penn State standout Sam Ficken was set to open the year as the team’s kicker, but was placed on injured reserve just days before the regular-season opener.

Forced to replace Ficken for at least the first three games, the Titans promoted former Chargers kicker Michael Badgley from the practice squad to the active roster. He responded with...

Taylor Lewan’s message on a day where the offensive line was a liability

George Walker IV / Tennessean.com via Imagn Content Services, LLC

The Titans' offensive line was a disaster today. That’s a tough pill to swallow when you think about all of the resources they have invested in that line over the years. Of course a big chunk of that investment, last year’s first-round pick, (Isaiah Wilson - traded, out of the league) and this year’s second-round pick (Dillon Radunz - inactive), were not in uniform today. Hopefully, Radunz will be able to make more of a...

Cardinals crush Titans in 2021 opener, 38-13

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Ugly.

In one of the highest projected totals of the weekend, one team delivered and the other didn’t. Arizona came into Nashville and thrashed the Titans from the opening kickoff until the final whistle.

Kyler Murray was spectacular. Ryan Tannehill? Not so much. Tennessee’s offensive line? A complete disaster.

Kliff Kingsbury’s offense was creative, utilizing several different playmakers and keeping the Titans off-balance for most of the...
