Let's hear it for regular season football! It's about time. Greetings MCM. I visited this fine site last year and even had a couple of posts. You see, I suffer from the horrible affliction of being a Raider fan, but the Titans were my adopted team.
I've always had a soft spot for Jeff Fisher and last year, after the rough start, the Titans were the most entertaining team in football. Anyway, it's a new year and one that looks to be a little less catastrophic for my beloved Silver and Black.
No thanks to the rough opener. I will admit, this match-up looks all Titans to me. From what I have seen of the Titans this pre-season they look incredibly stout up front; especially against the run. Bad news for the Raiders, whose offensive line looks to be the weakness of the team.
And if the O-line is not the weakness than the rushing defense is. Which blows for reasons I don't have to point out to you. The Raiders did much to try and improve the run D this off-season, but they still showed that pesky problem of completely breaking down once or twice a game and allowing a huge run. I don't want to get to in-depth here, since I am hoping we can get a good comment string going below.
What would you guys say is the strength of the Titans? What are your biggest worries?
The offensive line didn't seem as dominant in the little I saw in the pre-season, was there much turnover or were people being held out or was I just seeing things?
The Pass D for the Titans certainly had it's ups and downs last year. Are y'all thinking it'll be improved this year?
To sum it up, tell me whatever you want about your team and ask me anything about mine. I am just thrilled to be talking regular season football again.
