These will be quick, because reasons.

Titans Links!
The Titans and United Way took part in a Hometown Huddle Event. The event happened at Napier Elementary School, and the kids lit up as they saw the players. The players that were there were: Jurrell Casey, Wesley Woodyard, Delanie Walker, Josh Kline, Ryan Succop, Brett Kern, Beau Brinkley, Matt Cassel and Alex Tanney.

Mariota has hit some risky throws, but they aren't worth the risk. This is similar to an article I posted yesterday. Same premise: Mariota makes throws across his body, which is something he shouldn't do, but he's made plays in the past doing it, so he still does it. It's a risky thing to do, and it can come with a costly mistake...turnovers.

The Titans are happy with the progress they are seeing with Kevin Byard. On Sunday he played in 43 defensive snaps, and it was his highest snap count of the season. Mularkey said Byard and all the safeties have been playing well. Byard says he is settling in pretty good, but feels like he is leaving some plays out on the field. He says he just has to keep playing and grinding, and continue to make reach a level of play that he aspires to.

DirectSnaps article by Wesley Woodyard. This is a series where players write an article from their perspective. Just looking at the beginning of the piece; it looks like this article is on being a leader.

Antonio Andrews posted his hit on Jordan Poyer on Twitter yesterday, and that's news.

Glennon has five burning questions for the Titans vs Colts game. Can the Titans finally stop the skid? Will the defense feast on the carcass of Andrew Luck? (Side note: The Colts are last in the league at protecting their quarterback). Can Mariota win three in a row? Will Henry see more action? And finally, can Wright help Sharpe?

That's all for today. Happy reading!
