The Titans went from having no viable number one Running Back, to trading for one, and then drafting another who very well could be, in the course an off-season. So how will the Titans split carries between new Running Backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry? Don't worry. There's
an app a plan being worked out for that. Mularkey plans to find ways to get both Murray and Henry playing time, and doesn't want to strictly monitor touches. One thing is certain: Murray isn't one bit curious about how touches will be split out during the regular season.
Mariota knows that the regular season is quickly approaching, but he isn't focusing too much on that. Right now he only wants to finish out the preseason strong. Mariota (and the other starters) will be seeing their most play time this coming Saturday against Oakland. Mariota acknowledges that a lot of guys are anxious for the new season to begin, but he says they need to stay focused in the now so that they can continue to get better.
Dick LeBeau is continuing to push the defense to keep improving.The big drives by opponents early in these past two games has been viewed as (obviously) less than ideal, but LeBeau considers them to be opportunities to talk about what needs to get done. He says the work ethic of the defense has been outstanding, and that makes him happy.
That's all for today. Happy reading!
