The Tennessean staff gives out their awards for the 2011 Titans, with Matt Hasselbeck taking the MVP and Jason McCourty winning DPOY.
The firings of Marcus Robertson and Curtis Fuller are certainly intriguing, especially since the secondary was the most consistently well performing part of the team this season. We might never know what the real issue was, but my guess is that Robertson was largely kept due to the desire for some continuity on the staff coming out of the lockout, and the struggles of the safeties was more than Gray and Munch could tolerate. I'll definitely have my eyes and ears peeled for a more informed breakdown from the folks close to the team, but it's an interesting move for sure. Also, I highly doubt Gray and Munch would make this move if they didn't have a familiar replacement already in mind.

The Titans' offensive skill players were largely ignored in the 2011 finale of FO's Quick Reads, save for Chris Johnson, who received a spotlighted bashing:
Worse than his standard statistics made him look: Chris Johnson, Tennessee Titans: By the end of the year, Johnson was averaging 4.0 yards per rush and was 12th in the league in yards from scrimmage. Do not be fooled: This man sucked. He was 49th out of 51 qualifying runners in DVOA and DYAR, and 46th in Success Rate and Stuff Rate. He also had a negative DVOA as a receiver.
