This game should be a good test to see where we're really at right now. By week 3 starting slow and being rusty are no longer viable excuses. Everybody should know their role on this team. Injuries have not been a huge issue so the team is mostly healthy. It's an away game, sure, but it's not a 10 AM start so that can't be an excuse either.
The Titans are a young, talented team with a top notch running attack, an athletic QB who can beat you with his feet or with his arm. I don't expect them to be playing for the AFC Championship at the end of the year but I wouldn't be surprised to see them in the playoffs. Henry is proving to be a monster at RB and DeMarco is no slouch and Delanie Walker is a legit weapon at TE. I don't think their wideouts are anything the LOB can't handle.
On defense the Titans are letting teams move the ball, they're not getting consistent stops on 3rd down, they're not getting sacks and they're not getting turnovers. They're a pretty middle of the road D against both the pass and the run which could present a bit of a "get right" game for us if we're able to quit beating ourselves on offense. I like to think that we're getting better, and the spark at the end of the game last week was something to build on, but I'm not entirely confident yet to say that I believe that will be the case. But it could be just what the doctor ordered.
Offensive line be damned, we should be able to pound the rock against them. And if we can, that should open up some opportunities for Russell to air it out a little bit. We do have legit weapons on this offense and it would be a shame if we were unable to use them against a defense like Tennessee's.
