The Titans decision to enter Sunday's opener with just four wide receivers has to be the most talked about roster decision since LeGarrette Blount was cut. The media seems very concerned that four receivers just isn't enough. As for Mike Munchak, he told Jim Wyatt he isn't concerned at all:
"If we felt differently we would’ve done something about it," Munchak said on Saturday. "We feel good about those guys. They have been consistent and they’ve stayed healthy. They are coming off the best years they’ve had, and they’ve had solid camps. So we are excited about them, and you add (the tight ends) to it and the running backs, we have guys who can make plays.
"We feel like we have plenty of weapons, where if we play right, we could be ready to play against anybody."
I don't know exactly what the question was Munch was asked, but I really love that response.The Titans will use a lot of sets in the Patriots game where they have four receivers lined up, but that doesn't mean that all four guys out there will be wide receivers. In fact, in most cases it will probably just be two wide receivers that are out there with Jared Cook and Chris Johnson also lining up wide.
It seems that the decision really came down to the fact that Kenny Britt is only going to be suspended for one week- that and the fact that there wasn't another guy available that they had any interest in putting on the roster.
