Tennessee Titans: Questions From the Colts Game

Here's the most recent installment of questions from the latest Titans match-up.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Why did the Titans go empty backfield on 3rd and 1 after Shonn Greene had just run the ball successfully for 9 yards on 2 carries in the 2nd quarter. - It seems to me that could have been a statement drive for the Titans and kept the Colts offense on the sidelines. The Titans were up 14-3, the run game was firing on all cylinders, and the Titans had the Colts on their heels. If there was ever a time to pound the ball, and be who you want to be, that was it.

Why did they try the spin the bottle/ball flat on its side/roll it to the defender onside kick? I know this point has been belabored over the past few days, but I would be remiss to leave it out. I figured the Titans would have learned their lesson last week, but obviously due to the short week, the front office didn't have time to read my articles.

Speaking of which, how many special teams' gaffes have there been for the Titans this year in total? - Anyone care to count? Starting with the opening kick of the season and Reynaud's safety, all the way up to Devon Wylie's fumble on Thursday night, this has to be the worst the Titans have looked on special teams since the "year of no returner" under Jeff Fisher.

Why did the Colts give a first round draft pick for Trent Richardson? As a Titan fan, I'm not complaining, just curious.

Speaking of Colts' running backs, how could the Titans allow Donald Brown to run all over them? Seriously? Last year it was Vic Ballard and now Donald Brown. At this point I fully expect next year's John Doe to do the same.

Sorry for the short article this week, but that's all I've got. What questions did you have from the game? Got any answers?
