Tennessee_titans_30x21 Pau K wraps-up yesterday's loss, and he has probably the biggest stat to take away from the game:

Hard to believe but true: Six of Tennessee's 11 possessions went three-and-out. Meanwhile, four of Jacksonville's 11 series were 11 plays or more. 

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Akeem Ayers, much like the rest of the defense, struggled early, but began to flash the skills that made him a 2nd round pick by the end of the game. I think we can all forgive Ayers for some rookie mistakes. It was Barrett Ruud's lackluster performance that I'm looking to see improvement on next week. He wasn't horrible per say, but he looked like a depressing Stephen Tulloch clone out there leading the team in tackles on 6-yard gains and not covering the pass especially well.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 David Climer wouldn't be as concerned with the issues that plagued the Titans yesterday if they weren't pretty much the exact same issues that sent last year's squad into the dumps. A soft defense and a shaky O-line are the recipe for disaster, but this staff seems much more intent on breaking that mold quickly and decisively.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Check out last night's episode of MCM Radio to hear what Jimmy sounds like after he losses his voice due to yelling at the middle of our offensive line for 3 hours.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Kenny Britt was the source of a lot of drama and snide remarks over the offseason, but his performance Sunday gained him a boat-load of favor. Perhaps the most encouraging thing is that he has started out the season hot, instead of spending a few weeks lost in the mix or trying to get back in shape. Britt looks primed to have a huge year if he can stay healthy and focused.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Griffin had a chance to try and separate Mike Thomas from the ball on that big 26-yard 3rd down conversion that really put us behind the 8 ball late in the game, but instead he tried to make a play on the ball. The result was Thomas making a clean catch and giving the Jags another set of downs.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Does anyone know what Shaun Smith did to earn that unnecessary roughness penalty? I couldn't see anything on the screen, and Smith says he was clueless as to what drew the flag.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The DE spot is a glaring weakness as long as Derrick Morgan and Jason Jones are out, and it's not helping things that William Hayes came out of the Jags game with shoulder pain.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Chris Johnson got to enjoy his status as the highest-paid RB in the NFL for a few short days before Adrian Peterson stole that title. Still, CJ isn't crying over his beer, and he's more than grateful for the Wells Fargo truck the Titans sent over to his bank.        

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Anyone who saw that Redskins-Giants game last night knows that the Sex Cannon is officially back in business.        

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Bocephus isn't feeling to good about our boys:

What about the new coach for the Titans [Mike Munchak]?

Oh, please. Let me tell you something, the Tennessee Vols and Tennessee Titans are in bad shape. Bad shape.
