Tennessee_titans_30x21 Tom Gower analyzes a slew of snapshots highlighting exactly how awful Michael Griffin has been in coverage. Never in my life have I seen a Titans safety so far out of position on a constant basis as Griffin is on these plays.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jerry Gray is trying to jump start his ailing defensive unit by preaching toughness and a faster start:

"Have we blown anybody up? ... Maybe we are playing too timid," Gray said. "We can't give up touchdowns as soon as we get off the bus. We didn't do that last year. You can't give up touchdowns in the first quarter and expect to get sacks and expect to get turnovers."

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Despite a few offseason moves aimed directly at fixing the pass rush, the Titans are currently on track to notch four fewer sacks than last year.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 David Stewart got fined for his play against the Texans, but declined to specify how big they are.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 With Kenny Britt still not healthy, Kendall Wright, Damian Williams and Nate Washington are getting run to death in practice. The extra reps are great for a rookie like Wright, but overall the primary issue they need to be working on is consistent focus.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 There's still a chance Colin McCarthy is on the field against the Vikings, but my bet is that it doesn't happen. McCarthy still isn't at the point where he can practice two days in a row, but the coaches could still plug him in simply due to our lack of playmakers on defense.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Many congrats to Darius Reynaud on being named the AFC special teams player of the month!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Christian Ponder is still gimpy, but it looks like his balky knee won't prevent him from playing when we take the field.
