Just when we all thought the Titans coaching staff was completely settled, they go out and add Jonathan Gannon as quality control coach. Gannon has been a scout for the St. Louis Rams for the past three seasons, and was a defensive quality control coach for the Falcons back in 2007. He'll have the same role here.
Titans Sized looks at Damian Williams, and asks if Titans fans are giving him too much crap. I think there are some corners of the Internet where that's the case, but most of us at MCM have a pretty realistic view of Williams: hugely talented and improving, but still prone to disappearing when he's asked to be the primary option.
No big surprises in PFF's "Trending in the AFC South" segment: Finnegan made most improved, Jason Jones had the biggest drop-off and Karl Klug is most deserving of more snaps.
Football Outsiders released their fan-voted awards, and Chris Johnson won the 'Keep Choppin' Wood Award for 2011 (player who most hurt his team)'. Pretty fair. Though I'd contend the run blocking did him no favors, but that unit was good enough in pass protection that you couldn't pick Scott or Harris in that spot. At least they helped us in some area of the game.
Mac's Football Blog has a list of players who hit their incentives, and the only Titan is Jason McCourty, who will pocket an extra $645,000 next season.
How crazy could free agency be this offseason? Over 600 players could be free agents. Now not all of those guys will change teams, but consider that last year only 289 players changed teams last offseason.
