Between The Posts: Defensive Questions

Your nightly OT open thread.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Titans are a team in transition, as are many in the AFC South this season, in one form or another. But the new-look Titans defense has gotten in some slow starts under defensive coordinator Ray Horton. With the Atlanta Falcons on the horizon for the team's dress rehearsal, the group will certainly be looking to start, and finish better. The fans will be watching that closely as well.

Obviously we have talked a lot about the second cornerback spot, and the team certainly didn't dispel those concerns last week. Linebacker, both inside and out, has been another spot where the team is looking to get some return on investment from their scheme change.

Defensively, who do you think surprises the most against Atlanta? And who are you most focused on going into the matchup?

For me, it's Blidi Wreh-Wilson who needs a big game, but I'll be watching newly-minted outside Sam linebacker Derrick Morgan. He has showed well so far, and team reports have been positive, but I'm excited to see what he can do with some extended playing time.
