Tennessee Titans Morning Links: The Media Coverage Feels Like A Practice Week Too Edition

New, comments

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Chris Johnson fell off of his pace to beat Eric Dickerson's single season record, but he's claiming a litany of important records every weekend now:

Johnson now has eight consecutive 100-yard rushing game, eclipsing the seven in a row he shared with Hall of Famer Earl Campbell.

Johnson also surpassed Campbell’s franchise record for most yards from scrimmage (1,981) as he now has 2,017 yards between rushing and receiving this season and is within range of Marshall Faulk’s NFL record of 2,429 yards with three games to play. He became only the fifth back in NFL history to reach 2,000 yards from scrimmage in 13 games.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Peter King gets it wrong even when he gets it right:

c. Loved Keith Bulluck's back-to-the-future game against the unfortunate Keith Null: 10 tackles, two interceptions, a pass broken up. The Titans' D played with a ferocity a defense can play with when it knows the quarterback can't beat it downfield.

Note to the front office: there was no 'back-to-the-future' game there, that was just what you get with Keith Bulluck.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans walked away with five interceptions yesterday.  Even more surprising: they did so while Nick Harper was on the field.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Associated Press compared that game to a practice week.  I'd venture a guess that the crowd at LP Field was quieter than they are for the average pre-season game.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Welcome to the NFL, Keith Null.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 This would have ended in disaster in weeks 1-6:  On Chris Johnson's long reception, he was supposed to stay in and block, but the pass rusher came on a delayed blitz and it was too late before CJ realized it.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 What is it with the Texans and former Volunteer state-based running backs?  They could close the season with Chris Brown, Arian Foster and Chris Henry on the active roster.
