TITANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Gambling to hit QB has Titans struggling vs. run

Now Tennessee (2-9) is preparing to head to Houston where...

Five draft picks why the Titans won’t make the playoffs

The Titans are still paying for taking bad quarterbacks in the top ten. Not once, but twice, over the course of the last nine years. Neither player panned out and they’ve already moved on to rookie Zach Mettenberger at this point. The Titans seem to be drafting better as of late so the jury is still out on how those players will develop, but their miserable season suggests they’re...

Were any Tennessee Titans named as Week 12′s biggest heroes or goats?

Twelve weeks into the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad. Who fell...

Tennessee Titans move up Power Rankings despite tough Week 12 loss

It’s Thanksgiving week, which means the NFL season is approaching the final stretch. With just over a quarter of the season remaining, every game takes on added significance, with postseason implications seemingly involved with every matchup. In part, that’s because so many teams are still technically “in the hunt.” But reality suggests that not every franchise that is still...

Chance Warmack is really, really happy the Titans scored

Chance Warmack is a very large and happy man. The Tennessee Titans offensive lineman was in Philadelphia to play the Eagles on Sunday and was on the field when running back Shonn Greene plunged into the end zone for a touchdown.

Eagles offense needs to strike out the mighty Casey…

DT Jurrell Casey One big reason the Eagles want to get their running game going against the Titans on Sunday is defensive tackle Jurrell Casey. At 6-1, 305, now in his 4th year out of USC, Casey has emerged as “The Disrupter” in Tennessee’s pass rush. Casey is the equivalent of the “Gate Keeper” for the Titans. He may not have a ton of stats (44 tackles, 4 sacks), but...

Kendall Wright lobs hilarious shot at Dez Bryant

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright has seen his production decline a great deal from a season ago. After putting up 94 receptions for nearly 1,100 yards last year, the former first-round pick has tallied just 43 receptions through 10 games this season.

Greg Cosell vs. Trent Dilfer on Zach Mettenberger

The two most consistently interesting appearances on Nashville sports talk radio in my book are Trent Dilfer’s weekly appearance with Sports Night on 102.5 and Greg Cosell’s weekly appearance with the Midday180 on 104.5. Both know a lot about what goes on on a football field and why, especially at the quarterback position. (And let me throw in a plug for Bruce Feldman’s fantastic...

Kevin Daft, Vince Young, Rusty Smith, Jake Locker, and Zach Mettenberger. What do they have in common? They were all drafted by the Tennessee Titans after the late Steve McNair was drafted. What else do they have in common? None of them are likely to be a franchise quarterback and lead the Titans to another Super Bowl appearance. After watching the Tennessee Titans vs Pittsburgh...
