Since August is tied up this morning, I figured I would give you a couple of Titans' centered articles on Football Outsiders to read while waiting for your regularly scheduled morning links.
Vince Verhei: Jeff Fisher and Mike Tomlin have my permission to coach forever. Both teams have been tenacious on every play. The sequence before Pittsburgh's field goal, when they lined up for a play on fourth down, had me way too excited. Tennessee showed great discipline and preparation, not coming close to jumping offside. And then Pittsburgh takes delay of game rather waste a timeout when they were going to kick a field goal anyway. I think 80 percent of coaches would have taken a timeout there.
I couldn't agree with him more.
The second article comes from Mike Kurtz and Tom Gower and talks about the over/unders for AFC teams. Gower, who also writes for Total Titans, has this gem in his paragraph:
The offense is poised to be better, if only by the subtraction of Justin McCareins and a receiving corps that could be as good as the 20th best in the NFL, which would be the best it's been since at least 2004.
