2010 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: Guards

Total Titans continues its offseason positional analyses with a look at the guards. The key to the position group this offseason is Eugene Amano, who’s scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.

It wouldn’t surprise me to see Amano test the marketplace in March. He’s a serviceable but replaceable guard and I don’t see the Titans overspending to keep him. I’m not sure that any teams will bid highly for his services with better options available. All it takes though is for just one team to like a guy so I’d be a little surprised to see Amano re-sign with the Titans.

At the other guard spot, Jake Scott will resume his third season as Tennessee’s starting right guard. He’s started every game since joining the Titans and has two years remaining on his contract. Scott is easily the best guard on the roster so there are no problems on that front. (more…)

CJ eclipses 2,000 in Titans 17-13 victory

January 3, 2010

Let’s give a round of applause to the newest member of the NFL’s 2,000 yard rushing club, Chris Johnson.

CJ finished his unforgettable campaign with 2,006 yards via his 36-carry, 134-yard/2 TD performance in today’s Titan 17-13 victory over the Seahawks.

Much more on CJ and the team’s season-ending win at Seattle…after the jump. (more…)

Changing quarterbacks is a gamble for the Titans

October 27, 2009
So Bud Adams wants Vince Young to be his starting quarterback. He’s the owner and that’s certainly his prerogative. The players are his toys and he can play with them however he wants, within the guidelines of the collective bargaining agreement.
Adams doesn’t often interfere with his coaches or GMs. He’s hired football people to run his team for him, just like he’s hired people to run his other companies. Bud’s not a micromanager or a meddler, like some owners. Al Davis, Daniel Snyder and Jerry Jones spring to mind.
Of course, there are times when Adams does get involved. It was Bud’s decision to draft Steve McNair in 1995 and to select Young in 2006, both with the third overall pick. It was also his decision to start Young in Week Four of Vince’s rookie campaign. It now looks like he’s making another executive decision.
Here’s the part I fail to understand. I don’t get this talk about starting Vince just to find out what the Titans have got in him. (more…)
