Is Zach Mettenberger the Future for Tennesse? posted by Titans Fan

NFL rookies have a difficult time adjusting the speed and caliber of talent that the game presents, but none fewer have a harder learning curve than quarterbacks. The sheer volume of the playbook, reading complex defenses and blitz schemes, understanding not only your job but the receivers, backs, and lineman.

No wonder most rookies start as a back up to watch a veteran work their magic as if it were second nature, OR get a season QB whose in the twilight of his career to mentor while the rookie is thrust into the starting role.

And after the Titans squared off the against the Ravens on Sunday, it’s hard to be optimistic about Zach Mettenberger as a franchise quarterback for this Tennesse team. He, like a lot of other pocket QBs out of college, got by with game managing and a big arm. But that doesn’t work in the NFL. You either need to be a mobile, dual threat QB like Vick or RGIII, or read defenses like the back of your hand (Peyton Manning).

Yet all season long, Mettenberger has shown the ability to do neither as he simply stands, concrete footed, in the pocket and take sacks as he fails to read coverage and underneath routes that are presenting themselves to him. Having been sacked 5 times this game simply killed what little momentum the Titans had on offense.

Zach Mettenberger not only requires a lot of time in the pocket, but he also has inconsistency within his reads and the flow of the offense. But when he is ‘on’, he’s on. But with the speed of today’s game. Can you really afford to wait for a QB to be on? While it’s too early to tell, Mettenberger looks like the same problem ridden QB that we saw back in college.

The 2014 Tennessee Titans posted by Titans Fan

The Tennessee Titans were in a position to draft quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater or Johnny Manziel but elected not to because they wanted to see if Jake Locker can still be the franchise quarterback they’ve hoping he’ll be. The eight pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Locker has been inconsistent and if he is unable to improve his play, so goes the Titans.

Another issue many critics have with Locker is his health. He has missed 14 games in the last two seasons. If Locker can stay healthy, then he’ll have weapons to make the Titans offense more formidable. The team has gotten rid of two locker room headaches—Chris Johnson and Kenny Britt, replacing them with second round pick Bishop Sankey. The Titans do have a good receiving trio in Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter, and Nate Washington.

Aside from Sankey, the team drafted Taylor Lewan during the first round. Lewan is expected to start on the right side, relegating veteran Michael Oher as the back-up.

Other players returning to the Titans are Andy Levitre who lived up to the massive contract he signed in the previous offseason, and sophomore Chance Warmack who surrendered a disappointing seven sacks last season. They’ll be joined by sophomore Brian Schwenke.

The Titans have their issues in defense. Jurrell Casey would be a poor fit in the 3-4 defensive scheme that the team plans to adapt this year. Another good rotational player with solid upside, Mike Martin, is also anticipated to get lost in this scheme.

The safety position of the team is quite secured with returning starters Michael Griffin and Bernard Pollard. Both these guys are not stars but expect steady performances from them game in, game out.

The Ultimate NFL Fan Guide to Preparing for the 2014 Season posted by Titans Fan

The NFL is the most popular sport in the United States, and the upcoming season is only a month away. Every die hard sports fan already loves the NFL, but it has gained even more popularity in recent years due to fantasy football and sports betting. Fans love to prove that they know more about the game than everyone else, and there is no better way to do that than by wagering money. Savvy bettors will use a system like the award winning sports betting systems from Rich Allen. If you're serious about putting money on games this season, then you need to start preparing now for the upcoming season. Serious sports bettors are already getting ready for the season and so should you. So here's a guide to getting ready to bet on the NFL this year.

Study the Rookies

Every NFL season sees several rookie players make a big impact on their team and the league. The emergence of Keenan Allen last year allowed the San Diego Chargers come out of nowhere to claim the last playoff spot in the AFC. Andrew Luck was able to do the same thing for a last place Colts team two years ago. It is guaranteed that several rookies are going to make a major impact on their team this season, and by figuring out who these star rookies are is a great way to gain an edge in your bets. Some of the rookies that look poised to make a big impact this season include Kelvin Benjamin, Bishop Sankey and Jadaveon Clowney.

Learn New Rosters

NFL teams gain a lot of new players through free agency signings in the off-season. It can be difficult to keep up with all of the players changing teams while you are focused on other sports, but several of these players are going to completely change the dynamic of their new teams. All of the players in new cities are established NFL players, so it should not take much time to project their impact on their new team. Taking a day to learn every team's new roster will go a long way in helping you make good bets at the beginning of the season. DeSean Jackson, Toby Gerhart, Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashad Jennings are just a few players that should have an impact on their new team.

Free Agency 2013: Days Two and Three posted by Joe Anello

Welcome back everyone! I would have posted this last night but the lack of sleep Monday night really caught up with me. Now I’m back and ready to pick apart the transactions of days two and three of NFL free agency. Let’s get that money man!

OG Gosder Cherilus signs a 5-year, $34 million deal with Indianapolis Colts.
Additional signings: OG Donald Thomas (4 years, $14 million), LB Erik Walden (4 years, $16 million), S LaRon Landry (4 years, $24 million)

This is a group of Colt signings that I didn’t discuss in the day one recap because I was exhausted and there were too many to address. Cherilus was overpaid, but I get it. Thomas’ deal is tolerable and revamps the interior of their line. I don’t feel confident that Walden’s contract will prove to be money well spent. Still, signing Landry as well gives Chuck Pagano a play-making safety in his secondary. The Colts are spending, but not as crazily as the Dolphins.

WR Wes Welker signs a 2-year, $12 million deal with the Denver Broncos

Okay, I have a LOT to say about this deal. I took to Twitter to express my thoughts shortly after the news broke, but I felt utterly hindered by the 140-character limit. I was really upset by the news that New England only offered Welker $10 million (including incentives). He’s only been one of the hardest workers on your team for the past six seasons and this is how he gets rewarded? EFF YOU PATS.

Welker’s caught 100 balls in his entire run with the Pats and hasn’t shown signs of slowing down. So imagine my surprise when I heard the Broncos only had to pay him $12 million… for two years!  If he, in this odd-as-hell receiver market, shouldn’t get more than $6M a year, I obviously don’t know football.

Joe's 2012 Gameday Review: Bears 51, Titans 20 posted by Joe Anello

Dude.

Yes, that is the only word necessary for the introduction to Chicago’s dominant blow-out win over the Titans on Sunday. Special teams got the scoring train rolling early and the offense fed coal engine late with some help from a defense that forced five turnovers on the day. Let us recap this glorious event.

 

(7-1) Chicago Bears 51

(3-6) Tennessee Titans 20 

Sunday’s contest had an auspicious start for the Bears. On the Titans’ very first play from scrimmage, Matt Hasselbeck found Kenny Britt wide open over the middle for a big gain. As he manages to do so often, Charles Tillman came over to make the tackle… and strip Britt of the football. From it only got worse for the Titans as Sherrick McManus blocked a punt which landed in the arms of Corey Wootton, who ran it in for the game’s first touchdown. Following a safety (due to a J’Marcus Webb penalty) and free kick, Chicago backed up the Titans offense, making them punt deep from their own territory, which Devin Hester returned 44 yards to the eight yard line. Matt Forte took that short field and turned in a one-play TD drive as he carried a pile of defenders over the goal line. Up 14-2, Brian Urlacher was not content, picking off a Hasselbeck pass on the next drive and taking it back 46 yards to paydirt. Tillman then victimized Chris Johnson with the dreaded ball-punch, forcing another fumble. Cutty and the offense got back on the field and finished a drive with a 13-yard score to Brandon Marshall. Following that insane barrage of action, Chicago held a 28-2 lead at the end of the quarter. They never looked back.

Joe's 2012 Gameday Preview: Chicago Bears at Tennessee Titans posted by Joe Anello

After squeaking by the Panthers in a game they had no business winning, the Chicago Bears continue their southern trek in week nine by heading to Tennessee. The Titans are led by veteran QB Matt Hasselbeck, who continues to fill-in for the injured Jake Locker. No more time to waste! Let’s preview this game!

(6-1) Chicago Bears at

(3-5) Tennessee Titans 

The Offense

Mike Tice’s offense will have to contend with an aggressive and physical Titan defense that has actually given up the most yards in the NFL. (Yeah, they’re that bad.) Whether through the air or on the ground, Tennessee will be at a decided disadvantage. That means Brandon Marshall (yet again) will have the edge over corner Jason McCourty. Kellen Davis figures to factor into the gameplan as well, since he should be able to find the openings behind a simply decent linebacking unit. The Titans have a solid front four though, the most dangerous of which being rusher Kamerion Wimbley. Wimbley’s caused problems for the Chicago o-line before, so chipping him to make sure he doesn’t get confident early is key. (And obviously we need to keep Jay upright.) Get ready J’Marcus Webb.

Obviously Chicago needs to find its balance again today with Matt Forte and Michael Bush out of the backfield. Tennessee gives up a lot of yards on the ground, (over 140 per game), so Tice can’t afford to get pass-happy this week. (Though I feel like I can say that about every game.) Between the two backs we need to see about 30 carries in order to establish a ground attack and a valid play-action game as the contest draws on.

The Final Drive: Week 4, 2012 posted by Joe Anello

Week four in the NFL did a lot to clear up our impressions all 32 teams, as we now have a four game sample size from which to judge them. Our three undefeated teams managed to continue their winning ways and our shockingly winless squad kept disappointing. Let’s review the weekend’s best action!

(4-0) Atlanta Falcons 30
(1-3) Carolina Panthers 28

It took a last second field goal, but the Falcons overcame their defensive lapses to get to 4-0. Carolina gave them all they could handle, but Matt Ryan calmly led his team on a drive from their own one with barely over a minute left in regulation for the game-winner. And now they get to reap the benefits of sitting pretty atop the NFC South.

(2-2) New England Patriots 52
(2-2) Buffalo Bills 28

For about a half, this game looked interesting. And then the Patriots woke up. Tom Brady remembered how awesome Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski are, finding them a combined 14 times for 233 yards. And the Bills remembered that they can’t hang with the Patriots and proceeded turn it over a whopping six times. Things were righted today in the AFC East.

(3-1) Minnesota Vikings 20
(1-3) Detroit Lions 13

Uh… don’t look now, but the Vikings are atop the division. The Lions? Yeah they’re on the bottom. Mikel LeShoure crapped out in his second career game, returning the Lions to their normal state of “no running game.”

My Many Musings on the Manning Maneuver posted by Joe Anello

The cloud that’s hung over the NFL for months ended today when the story broke that Peyton Manning would be signing with the Denver Broncos. The ramifications are not just limited to the Broncos however. They are far-reaching across the NFL landscape. Here are my thoughts on the biggest free agent signing in NFL history.

Why it’s an idiotic move for Manning:

The Broncos are still a massive rebuilding project away from legitimately contending in the AFC. Even if they bring in ALL of Peyton’s fellow aging ex-Colt teammates, their best hope is to win the AFC West. Beating the likes of Pittsburgh, New England, and Baltimore is going to take more than slapping the 2007 Colts back on top of an already shaky offense.

Former Colt center Jeff Saturday is already scheduled to visit Denver this weekend, starting the process of bringing Manning’s buddies to town. Dallas Clark will probably be next on the list to make a stop in the Mile-High City, ensuring that John Elway will do anything for his new legend. Even if they do make a push to bring in Pittsburgh’s Mike Wallace, the Broncos are supposed to be a run-first team under John Fox. This system will need to undergo an overhaul now that Denver has an actual quarterback. He can’t run this offense like Kyle Orton or Tim Tebow ran it. (Nor should he.)

What this means for the Broncos:

It means they’re still a playoff team. Beyond that, they’re good for another couple wins thanks to Manning’s presence. The offense will be improved by leaps and bounds, which will hopefully be enough to take the pressure of a defense that carried the team too often last year. No more will the Broncos be forced to win 15-12 skirmishes. I’m not convinced they’ll have even a top five offense with the pieces that have currently in place, but perhaps a shrewd maneuver or two will lean me in their direction.

The Final Drive: Week 14, 2011 posted by Joe Anello

Heart attacks were felt across the nation on Sunday (especially by me), leading to plenty of hospitalizations. While you’re incapacitated, why not get the full scoop on week 14’s heart-stopping action?

 

(10-3) Houston Texans 20
(7-6) Cincinnati Bengals 19

So maybe the Texans aren’t absolutely screwed with T.J. Yates at quarterback. Who knew? They probably won’t make a lot of noise in the playoffs depending on the seeding, but they should stay competitive. Unfortunately for Cincy, there may be too many “respectable losses” on their record.

(10-3) New Orleans Saints 22
(7-6) Tennessee Titans 17

If the Titans weren’t in the middle of a playoff chase, I’d say it was time to start Jake Locker. Though with Hasselbeck’s injury, it might happen anyway. Kudos to the Saints for not falling into the “Trap of the Week.”

(5-8) Philadelphia Eagles 26
(4-9) Miami Dolphins 10

Oh Tony Sparano, we hardly knew ye. Wait, I did. You were a mediocre coach. Its obvious management was waiting for him to lose just ONE more game after that streak of wins they went on. Dropping one to the Eagles wasn’t going to cut it.

(8-5) New York Jets 37
(5-8) Kansas City Chiefs 10

Sparano wasn’t the only coach let go today, as Todd Haley was relieved of his duties in Arizona following this shellacking. When you make Mark Sanchez look good… nothing good can follow. The Jets inch closer to the playoffs with a surprisingly lop-sided win.

The Opening Drive: Week 13, 2011 posted by Joe Anello

The weeks are rushing by in the NFL with the playoff picture beginning to take shape. Two 11-game streaks could push their way to 12 and an NFC contender tries to get by without one of their biggest stars.

 

(6-5) Tennessee Titans at
(5-6) Buffalo Bills

I gotta say, the only reason I’m putting this one on here is that the Titans could actually sneak their way into contention for a wildcard slot if the Jets and Bengals lose. That shouldn’t be a tremendous feat against the Bills, who are stumbling mightily.

(0-11) Indianapolis Colts at
(8-3) New England Patriots

This is crazy. A 20.5 point line for a professional game? That just proves how utterly hopeless the Colts have been this season. I don’t expect it to be close… but that’s a very large number. Very. Large. Still, with Dan Orlovsky starting for Indy it could be a safe bet.

(7-4) Cincinnati Bengals at
(8-3) Pittsburgh Steelers

The Bengals have had two shots to make statements against the Ravens and Steelers but have failed to deliver. Round two against the AFC Champs takes place on Sunday as the Bengals try to hang onto their playoff hopes. Look for things to be different this time around as Andy Dalton should hopefully have A.J. Green for the entire game.

(7-4) Atlanta Falcons at
(8-3) Houston Texans

Uh… who’s Houston starting at quarterback again? T.J. Yates? …It would be REALLY hard for me not to take Atlanta here. I’m not saying Yates is awful, but first starts are hardly ever stand-out performances. The Falcons are quietly winning but need a noisemaker for anyone to start taking them seriously.

NFL draft Day 2 Winners and Losers: Cowboys keep taking chances (Shutdown Corner)

Every team has its own tolerance level for taking on character risks. We still haven't seen the Dallas Cowboys reach their tolerance level. Perhaps emboldened by how well things have worked out with Dez Bryant, the Cowboys collected two players this offseason who have a lot of red flags, for different reasons. Defensive end Greg Hardy, coming off a domestic violence case that cost him 15 games last season as it went through the courts, was signed as a free agent. He was then given a 10-game suspension by the NFL. The Cowboys came back with another pass rusher the rest of the league shied away from, taking Nebraska outside linebacker/defensive end Randy Gregory with the 60th overall pick in the draft. Gregory once looked like a top-10 pick. But issues that included a failed drug test at the NFL scouting combine and some erratic behavior sent him tumbling, almost out of the second round. Talent is talent, and the Cowboys were the team that took Gregory. That shouldn't have been a surprise. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football is back: Sign up for a league today! ] Don't forget that Cowboys running back Joseph Randle just dodged charges stemming from a domestic dispute. Prosecutors said that there was not sufficient evidence for any charges, according to the CBS affiliate in Dallas . They also just re-signed linebacker Rolando McClain, who has had many off-field issues and was just fined four game checks for a third failed test under the NFL's substance-abuse policy. They also have defensive tackle Josh Brent, who was convicted of intoxication manslaughter and served six months in jail from a 2012 car accident that killed his teammate Jerry Brown.  It must be quite an interesting locker room. At least the Cowboys aren't one of the most-watched NFL teams with an enormous media corps covering their every move. Of course, the Cowboys can always point back to Bryant. Bryant's background heading into the 2010 draft was reportedly the "worst" at least one ex-scout had seen. He turned into one of the NFL's finest receivers, and the Cowboys would clearly make that same pick again. All NFL teams have taken chances on players whose character has been questioned. It gets risky when a lot of those players end up on the same roster. Plenty is said about NFL teams valuing character and so forth. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones apparently doesn't have too many concerns about that. It has worked out for him before. The mid-1990s Cowboys teams that won Super Bowls had plenty of players who weren't choir boys either. Jones is betting that another character risk can become a productive player in Dallas. He's likely not going to make any apologies for it either. Here are the rest of the winners and losers from Day 2 of the NFL draft: WINNERS Tennessee Titans Again, no NFL team is full of impeccable character. There were plenty of reasons receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, a top-10 talent, fell to the second round. Whoever drafted him would be assuming a big risk. But the Titans might as well swing big. The Titans might have the most talent-deficient roster in the NFL. They need players. Green-Beckham is definitely a player. He also got booted from Missouri for multiple off-field incidents . All teams have to decide risk vs. reward. The aforementioned Cowboys have taken a ton of chances, and to be fair, they were 12-4 last year. The Green-Beckham pick was worth the risk for the Titans. If he hits, he and Marcus Mariota will be a great combination for years. The Titans need to catch a break like that. Darren McFadden? Joseph Randle or Lance Dunbar? I can't tell you that I think it's a good idea to count on McFadden as a starting running back. The same goes for Randle, Dunbar or Ryan Williams. But with three rounds of the NFL draft done, I don't know who will be the Cowboys' replacement for NFL offensive player of the year DeMarco Murray, who left for the Philadelphia Eagles. Unless there's some late-round gem lingering for Dallas, one of those guys will fall into an incredible situation for any tailback. It was a big surprise that Dallas didn't take a running back in the first three rounds of the draft. Jones said running back wasn't a pressing need for the Cowboys going into the draft. Apparently he was being honest. The Cowboys took offensive tackle Chaz Green in the third round instead of going with a running back, even though Dallas already had one of the strongest offensive lines in the NFL. That might be the thought process. Maybe Dallas feels one of the backs on the roster can be productive behind that fantastic line and don't need to invest in the position. Randle seems like the best bet at the moment to get that shot. Or perhaps the Cowboys have a back in mind for the fourth, fifth or seventh round (Dallas doesn't have a sixth-round pick) that could be a potential starter, though that seems like a major reach. Someone is going to cash in as the Cowboys' starting back this season. I just have no idea who that is. Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens The Pittsburgh Steelers got some praise for their first-round pick of Bud Dupree in this spot yesterday , and their two biggest AFC North rivals each did very well for themselves on Day 2. The Ravens might have my favorite draft so far, from a value standpoint. Receiver Breshad Perriman was a nice pick at No. 26 and a great fit for the offense. I know tight end wasn't top heavy or deep this year, but Minnesota's Maxx Williams was the consensus top tight end and Baltimore traded up and got him at No. 55. He's a value pick and he fills another need. The same can be said for Iowa defensive tackle Carl Davis in the third round. That's three nice value picks for a team that always seems to draft well. The Bengals typically do pretty well in the draft too, and I liked all three of their Day 2 picks. They paired their first-round pick, offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, with second-round offensive tackle Jake Fisher. They're set at tackle for a while. Tyler Kroft of Rutgers is a solid tight end who can block and catch and went late in the third round. Then to finish the third round, the Bengals drafted TCU linebacker Paul Dawson, who didn't work out well at the combine but is a good football player. LOSERS Bryce Petty and Brett Hundley For a while on Thursday, a couple hours were spent with NFL insiders discussing on Twitter that Baylor quarterback Petty would a late first-round pick. That was fun. Petty didn't get drafted in the first round, or the second or third rounds either, and neither did UCLA quarterback Hundley. Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion did go to the Rams, the fourth quarterback selected after first-rounders Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston, and fellow third-rounder Garrett Grayson. This wasn't a very good quarterback class. That's why folks spent time talking up Petty and even Hundley at various times. But now it's clear that both have a lot of work to do to establish themselves in some NFL team's long-term plans. They probably didn't expect to be undrafted going into the draft's third day. Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West Crowell and West were the opposite of those Dallas backs we discussed before who didn't welcome any new competition to their position group. Both Browns players showed some NFL ability as rookies. But now they're fighting for playing time with a 2015 rookie. The Browns drafted Miami (Fla.) running back Duke Johnson in the third round. I don't want to come off as hating the Browns, after I wasn't thrilled with their first round, so I'll avoid saying that I have no idea why a team with some legitimate needs would draft a third running back when both 2014 rookies looked pretty promising. You have to assume the Browns have big plans for Johnson, a versatile and exciting back. It's doubtful that there's enough to go around for three backs to be happy in that offense. At least one of last year's Browns rookie backs just had a lot of playing time taken away, it seems. Patriots, but really, we should know better Every year there's a draft pick that surprises everyone, because nobody expected to hear the name announced for a few more rounds. The Patriots made that pick this year. New England picked Stanford safety Jordan Richards at the end of the second round. Nobody seemed to know what to say because it didn't seem that anyone figured Richards would be picked before Day 3 of the draft. It seemed like a major reach, maybe by a few rounds, for the Patriots to take him in the second. " We have yet to find an expert projecting him as a second-round pick ," CSNNE's Tom Curran wrote . All that said, it's best to just assume New England knows something nobody else does. The Patriots often make surprising picks, and many have worked out fine. Richards does seem to fit what they do well, a productive strong safety who is lauded for his football smarts. Sounds like a good fit for the Patriots. It was an odd pick at that time, but it's probably best to bet that it'll work out for New England. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?
