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.

Six teams that could dramatically shape Round 1 of the NFL draft (Shutdown Corner)

Round 1 of the 2016 NFL draft is still a day away, and yet already the top 10 picks have been turned somewhat upside down. Expect more chaos Thursday. Trades involving the first two picks in the draft have ensured that quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz will go first and second overall, and that has caused some uncertainty thereafter. Consider the plight of Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, once the prohibitive favorite to go first overall who now is no guarantee to land in the first five picks. [ Follow Yahoo Sports draft expert Eric Edholm on Facebook and Twitter ] Expect more trade activity while teams are on the clock, and a lot more than last year's tame first round. There were only two trades involving the first 32 picks in 2015, and there was only one upset — Brandon Scherff over Leonard Williams — in the top 10 picks. With that in mind, there are six teams that could help significantly shape the first round. What they do with their picks could have a domino effect on the rest of Thursday's action. Dallas Cowboys (No. 4 overall pick) There is believed to be an off-the-clock debate at Valley Ranch happening with the fourth pick. How does the board lie after the San Diego Chargers make their pick at No. 3? If the Chargers take a tackle, either Tunsil or Notre Dame's Ronnie Stanley, it could plop Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey right in the Cowboys' laps. That might represent an ideal scenario. If Ramsey goes third, the Cowboys might have a choice between Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott, his teammate (and former roommate) Joey Bosa or an unknown third option. Elliott is believed to be team owner Jerry Jones' preference. Bosa, whom the Cowboys scouts like and believe will be a very good pro for a long time, also fills a need at defensive end, where the team's top two rushers will be suspended the first four games next season. Will Jones be talked out of Elliott the way he was out of taking Johnny Manziel two years ago? That pick netted Zack Martin, an All Pro-caliber guard, which would lend credence to the Cowboys sticking with the board and trusting the scouting process. But with Jones, anything is possible. Could they trade down? The action with the pick appears tepid as things stand now. This spot is difficult to forecast. San Francisco 49ers (No. 7) They're out on Goff and Wentz, and they appear to be quite cool on Memphis QB Paxton Lynch. But quarterback remains an option at some point high in the draft, as head coach Chip Kelly likely has some strong ideas of which one might be the best option in his system. There's also the matter of Colin Kaepernick's unsteady future with the team cloaking the whole operation. They could stand pat and take Oregon defensive end DeForest Buckner, whom Kelly and 49ers DL coach Jerry Azzinaro had in Eugene. Buckner and Azzinaro are especially close, texting and talking on a regular basis, and it would fill a need. Two Ducks defensive ends in Round 1 two straight years? Who cares? Buckner is a favorite of the Shutdown Corner, so we'd endorse that. General manager Trent Baalke has 12 picks, but nine of them are in Round 4 and lower. There's a vibe that they're open for business moving — up, down, or into the 2017 draft if that presents itself. They're going to make some noise, and it starts at No. 7. Grandstanding: A Yahoo Sports podcast Subscribe via iTunes or via RSS feed Cleveland Browns (No. 8) Already the new front office has earned respect for understanding "the value of draft picks" to building a team, one league decision maker told Shutdown Corner. But how is that different from the old Browns regime(s)? The Browns amassed seven first-round picks in the past four drafts and 10 in the first three rounds the past two years. As it stands, this is one of the leanest rosters in the NFL. Sashi Brown, Paul DePodesta and Co. know they must use their picks — 12 in all this weekend — more wisely. They like Lynch, but No. 8 might be too rich. Another trade down? Hey, why not? That eighth pick has been a hot potato so far, held by three teams already, so a fourth would not be a surprise. It depends on who is available, and the Browns could opt to stay put and secure a free-falling top prospect, such as Buckner, if one is available. Chicago Bears (No. 11) The pick is valuable real estate because the salary structure in the collective-bargaining agreement slots a much lower figure — up to $4 million less over the length of the deal — for the 10th overall pick vs. the 11th. Plus, the Bears are almost certain to get one of their 10 highest-rated players at that spot, figuring that one team above them will pick someone they are far less interested in. Everyone is pegging the Bears for defense here after they used three of their first four selections on offense a year ago, and with the 3-4 scheme still needing reinforcements with a few ill-fitting parts up front. Georgia's Leonard Floyd has been connected to them often. But don't put it past Bears GM Ryan Pace to switch gears and tab a falling offensive star — say Elliott, Tunsil or Stanley, if any of them should be available. That would be great value there. Bears RB coach Stan Drayton coached Elliott at Ohio State, and Jon Fox drafted Jonathan Stewart in this range years ago. It makes sense after Matt Forte held down the fort for years, even with Jeremy Langford showing promise. The Bears haven't been connected to a lot of trade talk, but a deal certainly could materialize on the clock in the next few days. Tennessee Titans (No. 15) The bold move down from 1 to 15 has netted first-year GM Jon Robinson a trove of picks. They now own six of the first 76 selections this year, plus the 2017 choices they received from the Los Angeles Rams. But they might not keep all of them. A trade back into the top 10 is entirely possible, and they very much have the ammo with which to make that happen for the right player. Assuming they were high on Tunsil at 1, could they try to get him again if he slides past the Jacksonville Jaguars at 5? What a fun scenario and a double victory that would be, taking the player they might have been stuck with had the Rams not come calling. The same might apply to Stanley, whom the Titans sent Robinson, head coach Mike Mularkey and OL coach Russ Grimm to watch at his pro day. Other needs that could be addressed in the top 10: cornerback or defensive line. Or the Titans could stay at 15. They might have a shot at the third-best tackle on their board (Jack Conklin?), or try to address wide receiver (none might be off the board yet) or just the highest-rated player on their board. It's not as if talent isn't their biggest need; everywhere but quarterback is a concern on some level. Robinson also currently sits one spot ahead of former New England Patriots coworker Bob Quinn, who is now the GM of the Detroit Lions, at pick No. 16. Having cut their teeth together over the past 15 years in the same scouting system, it might stand to reason that they're seeking the same types of players, so Robinson has a tiny leg up there, too. New York Jets (No. 20) They're lurking for now, and they have no quarterback. Correction: They have Geno Smith and Bryce Petty under contract. Take from that what you will. Everyone assumed they'll re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick, but it's hardly a mortal lock — and there's the allure of Lynch that could tempt them. Can they get him at No. 20? Will they have to trade up? Or is their interest in Lynch overblown? All fascinating, no matter what happens. If they want to move up, the Jets could offer something that few teams have as a pot sweetener: an All Pro defensive lineman. Muhammad Wilkerson remains at loggerheads with the team over a new deal, and they could try to package him and a pick (or picks) to move up if they choose. The issue: The Jets have a mere six picks in this draft, two of which are in the seventh round. Outside of a quarterback, they could use a little fortifying on all three levels of the defense (especially at pass rusher), and the offensive line — even with the trade for Ryan Clady — needs help. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

NFL-Quarterbacks figure to rule at NFL Draft (Reuters)

By Larry Fine April 27 (Reuters) - Quarterbacks are expected to once again command the spotlight at the National Football League Draft in Chicago on Thursday. Given the pass-happy state of the most popular U.S. professional sports league, the pressure to find a frontline thrower moved the Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles to trade up to the number one and two slots, respectively, for the presumed purpose of snaring a quarterback. In exchange for sending a passel of extra picks to the Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns, the Rams and Eagles are expected to take quarterbacks Jared Goff of the University of California and Carson Wentz of North Dakota State off the board.

The biggest need for all 32 teams heading into the NFL draft (Shutdown Corner)

No matter how much money you spend in free agency, there's always going to be an unsolved problem going into the draft. Many teams go into the draft this week looking for the best available player, but they also understand the weaknesses of their rosters. While a team might not ignore a great player who falls too far, it also has an eye on the holes that still need to be filled. PODCAST: The ultimate NFL Mock Draft breakdown: Grandstanding: A Yahoo Sports podcast Subscribe via iTunes or via RSS feed Here is the top remaining need for every NFL team heading into the draft, counting down in original first-round draft order, before any trades or pick forfeitures: 1. Tennessee Titans Biggest need: Offensive tackle It couldn’t have been easy for the Titans to trade the No. 1 pick and pass on Laremy Tunsil, a potentially great left tackle who fills the team’s biggest need. But the offer from the Rams was impossible to refuse. The Titans have the 15th pick now, and might move back up into the top 10 for their tackle. [ Yahoo Fantasy Football is open for the 2016 season. Sign up now ] 2. Cleveland Browns Biggest need: All skill positions You could pick any of the skill positions. It’s shockingly thin at quarterback, running back and wide receiver (tight end is fine with Gary Barnidge, but he turns 31 in September). The players at those positions in Cleveland would have a tough time starting anywhere else in the NFL. 3. San Diego Chargers Biggest need: Offensive line [read full article]
