Sharona, I like hearing BWW is improving
can you go into specifics on what you’ve seen from him?
It's pretty common to see rookies thinking too much early on in the offseason and in training camp. There is a lot to absorb with the playbook and just adjusting to life as a professional football player. At some point guys start to settle in and become comfortable and just start playing.
With BW3, I see a guy who is way more familiar with what the Titans expect from him, he isn't overthinking he is just out there playing. He is faster coming off the line and is staying with his receiver better. He has made some really nice plays in coverage, and in Sunday night's practice he was part of a big play you can find on my vine account.
It's good to see him out there just playing. You can tell he is really talented.
Marc Mariani seems to be a fan favorite. Why is that?
"The other way to stop this move is to just fall on the defender and smother him like a grenade. That can be plenty effective too. It’s just that if you miss, you look like a fat, unathletic, toad."--Ben Muth, Football Outsiders
Quack quack. Water off my back.
In his rookie season, Mariani made the Pro Bowl as a returner and finished as one of the top return specialists in the league. He has also set the franchise record previously held by Derrick Mason for the most total return yards on punts and kickoffs wtih 1,859 yards.
Hi Sharona – I must admit that I am struggling to understand your reasoning about Reynaud. Mariani’s injury isn’t serious and the Titans know what they have with him. He and Reynaud are both good returners and there’s not much to choose between them, at least not enough to put one clearly ahead of the other. However, there is no way that the Titans will have four RBs active on game days, and like last year that makes the 3rd RB slot pretty much useless if Reynaud has to be dressed every week to return. It seems to me that the only way Reynaud makes the final roster is if he wins the 3rd RB slot on merit, and at the moment that isn’t looking very likely.

Is it time to panic over Jake Locker?
