Damian Williams worked 75 of a possible 76 offensive snaps to lead the Titans’ offense in Week 15. Nate Washington was in on 68 plays and Lavelle Hawkins handled 54. Hawkins actually ran one more pass route than Washington (51-to-50), which means that the Titans called a pass on a ridiculous 51 of Hawkins’ 54 snaps. Marc Mariani helped out on six plays. Jared Cook ran 53 pass routes (second to only Williams) on his 58 snaps. Craig Stevens was in on 26 plays and Daniel Graham managed four. Chris Johnson paced the tight ends with 58 snaps and saw 26 looks. Jamie Harper entered the game for nine plays. Four Titans’ saw double-digit targets (Washington, Johnson, Cook, Hawkins).
So obviously the Titans are going to throw the ball every time Hawkins is in the game. Is that not a problem that the play calling is that obvious?
