Let's check out a 2016 NFL Preview on our beloved Titans. The article lists out reasons why they will make the playoffs, why they won't make the playoffs, some numbers and projections, a QB confidence index, an X factor (Murray), some fantasy football notes, and concludes with the "Final Word." The team has accumulated only five wins in the past two years. It will be quite the feat to see this team make a considerable jump, but it isn't impossible.
A familiar face returns to the Titans. Fan favorite Marc Mariani returns to the team after a stint with the Bears. The Titans were desperate to get help in the return game, so they turned to an old friend. Mariani practiced with the team on Monday, and is excited to back. He didn't want to leave the team the first time around, and says that it feels surreal to be back. He says that it feels good to be wanted down here, and is just all around excited to get things going. (Note: the Titans released Tre McBride to make room for the signing).
Derrick Henry definitely shined in the preseason. Dude was straight up running over people on the field. By all accounts he had a pretty productive preseason: 34 carries, 216 yards, 6.4 yards per opportunity, and rushed in 3 Touchdowns. This still wasn't enough for the guy. He feels he could have played better, but feels it was a good start for the whole team. He wouldn't directly say what he feels he needs to improve on, but he says he can do better, and feels there are corrections that can be made here and there.
Quick Hit: Henry's take on Adrian Peterson.
That's all for today. Happy reading!
