Tennessee Titans News Links: "He's a tough love guy."

Turn and Face the Strange: Titans Links from Jerlindsey

The Tennessean-USA TODAY Sports

"Where did she go I do not know,
And which direction was it snowing?"

*Same format today because it's late, and I'm lazy.

Titans Links!
Hall of Famer Tim Brown says new Offensive Coordinator Terry Robiskie will spark the Titans. For a quick little history lesson how Tim Brown knows Robiskie: Robiskie was on the Los Angeles Raiders coaching staff when Tim Brown arrived in the NFL. Robiskie was the Offensive Coordinator for the Raiders at that time (position he held from 1989 to 1993).

"Let me say this,'' Brown said. "Marcus (Mariota) is going to have a lot of fun. The thing about Terry that you love is his intensity for the game. Man, it is unmatched by any coach I have ever been around. He has a passion. I am talking about a crying, teary passion for this game like no other coach I have been around.

"So from that standpoint, he is going to get the most out of this offensive club and certainly get the best out of Marcus. And I think Marcus is really going to benefit from having a coach who is so passionate about the game."

Terry McCormick continues his "camp battle" series with the Tight Ends. I keep forgetting Phillip Supernaw is still on the team. I'm sure I'll remember him when he starts getting called for bone headed penalties at crucial times again.

"Barring a surprise or an injury, tight end is one of the few places on the roster where most things are sorted out. Walker, Stevens and Fasano would appear to be locks, with Supernaw battling Cunningham for spot at the back of the roster."

John Laird says not to sleep on Rishard Matthews (I heard it's because he makes for a horrible pillow). I'm a fan of the Rishard Matthews pick up. Quite a bit happened this off-season, and I think signing him was one of the best things Robinson did (among other things of course). Really hoping the dude pans out.

Surprising many people with his decision (including myself), Rishard Matthews chose to sign with the Tennessee Titans over the New England Patriots when the wide receiver hit free agency this past March. But the fit couldn't be better for both sides, which puts Matthews in position to have a great 2016 campaign in the Music City.

That's all for today. Happy reading!
