I’m enjoying the coaching staff so far and the play calling. They willing to try anything and really go for the points also they seem like they also going to use the best player for the play and not just the name guy or favourite.

But still. #KeepMccainOffTheField.

Beat on the fake punt (luckily it didn’t cost us)

Beat on the TD

Big PI penalty.

Matt in London.

(email from game vs. 49ers) This isn't a question, more of a statement, but everybody is completely overreacting. Everyone is blaming Mariota one week and the next week it is the coaches fault. We did not lose this week because of the play call at the end of the game, Mariota is the one who didn't audible. The coaches made the call before the defense adjusted. We can't be going back and forth every week on this discussion. They both are at fault. The offensive coaching isn’t great, but we have won games with this offense, this year when it's at its best.

Why is everyone complaining so much right now? We are in legitimate playoff contention right now. It has been a long time since this has happened, let's be excited. When each side of the ball is at its best, they are really really good. Let's be excited about potentially seeing them at their best and if we’re lucky maybe win a game in the playoffs. Let's save the complaining for the off-season, then let's spend our time talking about getting rid of coaches. We have extremely talented players that can beat good teams. Let’s talk about the upside, not the negatives.

Hey Guy,

This is unfortunate http://www.totalprosports.com/2017/12/25/titans-fan-now-stuck-with-massive-afc-south-champ-tattoo-after-jaguars-clinched-division-title/ he got it 10mths ago.

Can't wait till this week's games over and we can just move on.

Regards James

I don't know about you guys, but I am super optimistic about this week 17 game. This team is looking really good, we just played a top 5 team to the wire in a game we easily could of won of a few things went our way (onside kick, false start…). We need to stop selling this team short, it is a top 10 team this year when both sides of the ball play well together. I really do believe the titans will beat the jaguars. It is a perfect matchup for us, the jaguars offense depends on the run game for bortles to play well, and the Titans can stop the jaguars run game (especially with fournette probably not playing the entire game). And the Titans have the tackles to slow down the jaguars pass rush, which it makes a lot more difficult for the jaguars elite pass defense to play as well. The titans have 4 wr threats that are as good as the next, which is a huge advantage in this game because of bouye and Ramsey can only cover 2 of them. I believe the titans match-up with the jaguars better than most teams in the NFL and will win by 10+ against a Jaguars team with nothing to play for.

That loss was excruciating. The conservative play calling on that last drive should be grounds to fire Robiskie tonight. Marcus was playing great. How you don’t either run it straight at them with Henry, or go off play action and let Marcus use his feet is beyond me when it’s third and 2. Instead another Murray shimmy that gets stuffed.

Compare that to what the niners did straight after. Even when they were already in FG range they took a shot to the end zone. I know we say it every week but this coaching staff is killing our potential.

On a lighter note after your defense of him on last weeks podcast I considered ending my #KeepMccainOffTheField campaign. Then I saw him give away a penalty on a third down and be constantly targeted (and mostly beaten) by the niners offense. So the campaign officially lives on.

Hope you guys can give me some optimism for the end of the season.

Matt in London

I’m convinced that we’re not making the playoffs. I’m done with Mularkey... I don’t see his firing happening until this off season... The offense is atrocious!! Mularkey and Robiske are awful. I laugh when Mularkey throws challenge flags.  Let’s wait and  see if Robinson makes his money. Not making the playoffs should warrant a change.

Extremely frustrated!

Hey guys.

After staying up till midnight watching the titans stink it up on Sunday the only positive I could find was that we were SO bad on offence that surely changes will now be made. My greatest fear for this season was us sneaking into the playoffs, looking ok but not great, and not addressing our fundamental problems.

We managed to make Blaine Gabbert look a better QB than Marcus this week. That cannot happen. He clearly isn’t playing well at the moment. But when you have an offensive scheme that involves throwing 4 yard crossing routes to our top 5 pick Davis and targeting our starting cornerback with the game on the line then clearly something is wrong.

We need to get back to titans football. Run the crap out of the ball with Henry and sprinkle on the play action with Marcus.if we can score 20 points a game our defense is more than food enough to win games for us.  I still think we will make the playoffs, I just hope we aim to be a championship team in the future and don’t settle for being an ok team.

Keep up the great work guys.

Matt in London

Hey guys,

Thinking 9-7 this season and playoffs a little disappointed as this most likely will be our best chance in the next handful of years to win division.

Just does not seem were getting any breaks with the officials this season and that compounded with our offence is killing us.

Hey guys.

The past few weeks I’ve been feeling really negative, despite the winning streak. In my opinion the play calling has been holding our offense back and keeping those games a lot closer than they needed to be. The insistence on giving Murray the majority of snaps despite his lack of productivity which is made even worse by how often we follow the same pattern in our drives. Run, run, pass on third and long. We aren’t putting Marcus in the best position to succeed.

Yet after Thursday's game, I’m actually feeling a lot more positive about the LONG TERM prospects of the team. Byard and Jackson look like they could be long term solid starters in the secondary. We have a pair of tackles to build the line around for the next decade. We have a top 5 receiver who has shown flashes of his talent in the limited amount of games he has been able to play. Henry has the tools to become a franchise back. And most importantly we have a quarterback who has shown great progression this year despite his less than impressive numbers. He has looked a far better passer in general terms this year with a more consistent deep ball (although his tendency to overthrow passes early is starting to worry me).

I guess I’m just trying to say that we shouldn’t get to down on ourselves. We have progressed consistently ever since Jon Robinson became GM. He has drafted consistently well and picked up solid starters in free agency. I still worry about the coaching staff (particularly offensively) and that they will be kept on because we SHOULD still make the playoffs this season. But keep the faith, Titan up and keep Brice McCain off the field.

Matt in London, England.

Hey guys,

After this weeks vote to approve funding for the Major League Soccer stadium what does Titans management need to do to continue drawing fans to the stadium?  Increasing competition from other sports in Nashville should force each to be more thoughtful with their stadium experiences.  Specifically in the following areas; ticket prices, affordable and good food, game day service, pre-game and post game activities etc..  How do you think the Titans have done so far?

Stephen

Just to follow up from last week's email – same weekly mistakes interceptions and dropped easy catches in the endzone and it's finally cost us as we played a decent team.
What do we need to focus on this week?
We need to knuckle down asap and not leave any windows open this week or the division could be gone.

Hey Guys, I started this email with 8.30mins remaining in the 4th 13-17 I understand building towards end of season and being in best form with a game or two remaining but this offense is terrible. They can’t increase on any small lead they have and take every opportunity available to blow the game. We been very lucky to play some poor teams lately that can’t take advantage. My question to you is how do you stay positive about the team's prospects this week and the playoffs? I finish this email at 5.03mins remaining in the 4th 20-17

I was listening to an interview with Eddie George before the game and they were talking about how teams stacked the line and the Titans still controlled the game and ran and got yards in the late 90’s and early 2000’s .  Have things changed so much that this isn’t possible anymore in the NFL?  Don’t get me wrong I’m intrigued by Mariota’s passing game and if that’s how we win games, I’ll take a win anyway we get them.  I just miss that old school dominance!

I would like to thank you Michael for getting on the other guys for pronouncing Mariota correctly.

The return of Cyprien will more than likely benefit the run game defense. Do you anticipate his return hurting our pass defense or not? From my knowledge he is a better run defender than pass. Also, do you see the Titans trading for anyone before the trade deadline?

EX Titans News:

Did anyone catch Tre McBride on the Bears Sunday against the Saints? He managed to get open and do some damage. However, I still prefer our WR's to McBride.

Keep it up!

I'm not sure our Offensive Coordinator will last through the season if our offense doesn't improve. I can't imagine a head coaching change mid-season as I think Mularkey is making improvements enough to warrant him staying. If the Titans should make a OC change who would take over play calling duties?

Davis is returning to practice... I can't imagine our offense drastically improving upon his return...considering the current play calling. Also think it is ridiculous our running game has basically been non existent...which I also feel is due to play calling.

All in all not happy with the offensive game plans this season. But our special teams play is considerably better this season.

Thanks,

Bryan

Hi Guys

Do you think we will finish with a better record than last year if Marcus doesn't return soon ?

Cassel has had better days and won't deliver 6 / 8 wins and seriously is Weedon is the best option out there? We beat the Seahawks running an effective Pass Run Option with Marcus and the Offense is built on his treat of running the ball.

Just feel the front office hasn't made a football decision for the club and the progression we had made over the last 2 years will be lost!

Keep up the good work

Hi, my name is Prexton I’m a long time Titans fan since the Houston Oilers days. What a horrible loss, nothing was working for us. I’m just glad it happened early in the season so maybe the coaching staff can get the team back on track. Hopefully Marcus will be ok because I don’t want to see Matt Cassel or Brandon Weeden on the field anymore unless we’re up by 50. I love listening to the podcast keep up the good work.

Hi

What a let down against the Texans, the sad part is that I'm not really surprised that we lost, it’s been the pattern for a long time that every time we beat a good team, we would turn around and stink against the Jaguars or another bad team. Just like a couple of years ago when we opened the season with a win over Pittsburgh and then it went downhill from there. I'm surprised we lost by that much though.

What do you think we need to change to change that pattern? (besides actually having a defense on the field)

If the defense doesn't show up against the Dolphins we can just shut down the season. The Dolphins were shut out by the saints defense... And scored once against the jets!!

Keep up the good work on the podcast

I agree with the stance on Brice McCain... do you think with Simms coming back from injury McCain's role will be minimized? From what I could tell McCain played in a lot of Nickel formations but nonetheless I didn't like seeing him lined up on the outside.

I'm not sure how I feel about the RB situation splitting the carries really seems to disrupt Murray and Henry's ability to establish a rhythm. Has anyone else noticed the formation with Murray at fullback with Henry at Tailback? That seems new to me this season... haven't seen anything really come out of the formation but it is really early in the season. It's not really noticed by broadcasters either…

Corey Davis looked really good. Looking forward to watching him this season.Robinson is really drafting strong since coming to TN.  

Keep up the Good work on the Podcast and hope you get the IT issues worked out... not sure if you knew but during the preseason at times the microphones were really loud... and at other times really soft... but the most recent podcasts don't have that issue.

Thanks again & Titan Up!

Hey guys
It’s been awhile since the last podcast.
Would love to hear your take on the draft coming up. I think we should address CB/S and WR in the first round. Maybe draft Malik Hooker or Jamal Adams with the first pick and someone like Corey Davis with the second pick. With could also draft wr first but don’t know if there is value with the 5th pick of the draft. Then we could get someone like Gareon Conley from Ohio st. with our second pick. Marshon Lattimore concerns me we the injury history, so I am worried if we go that route. I haven't seen that much college football the last couple of years so would love to hear what you guys think.

Best regards from Denmark
Rasmus Hey guys keep up the podcasts. I'm pleased with our free agency moves. Nothing has seemed desperate. I'm thrilled we're not paying the price the jaguars did for Bouye. I think Ryan is a major upgrade for an affordable amount.  Anyone recall levitre? I'm trusting in Jon Robinson and his process. What are your thoughts? I feel like he's set various values on players and refuses to spend beyond that. I'm also impressed he didn't trade the draft picks away for cooks...however I would have liked having Cooks. I strongly feel that we're building through the draft. If there is a QB run early do you see us staying put at the #5 pick and drafting a impact player? If so who?

Titan up!

News

Tajae Sharpe and Sebastian Tretola arrested for bar fight - victim alleges Sharpe was angry over comments about losing playing time with the drafting of Corey Davis Titans, both current and past, are supporting the Nashville Predators Those questioning the Corey Davis pick over Mike Williams; Williams has already been sidelined with bulging discs in his back QB Matt Cassell thumb injury; required surgery; out 6 weeks Mariota looks good and is ahead of schedule OTA’s are currently underway With both Mariota and Cassell out, Alex Tanney is getting the majority of the reps The doubts about Derrick Henry missing voluntary workouts was unwarranted. He is in fantastic shape. While we are waiting for Corey Davis to complete his recovery for his ankle, Taywan Taylor is getting praise from everyone who has watched him in OTA’s A couple of linebackers are looking very fast (Nate Palmer and rookie Jayon Brown)

Players on the Bubble

Jace Amaro, TE – The Titans adding Jonnu Smith and re-signing Phillip Supernaw puts him on the roster bubble. Harry Douglas, WR – Adding Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor already has me thinking Douglas is at the bottom of the list of wide receivers. Antwaun Woods, NT – if Austin Johnson or Sylvester Williams do not play up to their potential. Curtis Riley, DB - With the signing of Brynden Trawick, practice squad? Eric Weems, WR/KR/PR – With the drafting of Adoree’ Jackson and Khalfani Muhammad, who have kick/punt return ability, it is just too hard to imagine Weems making the team. D’Joun Smith, CB – With the lack of great depth the Titans have at corner, Smith can make a name for himself and earn a spot. Jonathan Krause, WR – If Tajae Sharpe is let go, he might be able to make the team. KeVonn Mabon, WR – Too many receivers in the mix

Hi guys

What a way to make Monday a good day.

Great offensive game vs the Packers. Defensively it's still a little shaky at time, but I won't complain.

What do you guys think about the ejection of Lewan?

Personally I thought it was stupid of Lewan and he needs to know better especially after an ejection earlier in the year. But I love the attitude from Lewan and the offensive line - "You don't hit our QB on a cheapshot after the whistle you A**-hole"

And this crew now has 6 out of 11 ejections in the NFL this year, so it seems they are pretty strict.

Best regards
Rasmus

Hey guys

After the loss to the raiders i was wondering why it is we seem to be moving the ball and playing much better on offence in the 4th quarter than the rest?

Last week we had a game winning drive and this week we came close to overtime. But if we had moved the ball like that the whole game we would have won easily.

I haven’t been able to watch the games here in denmark so I have only seen highlights and stuff on nfl.com. And therefore i don’t know if it’s because the other teams are playing prevent defense or what?

Hey guys. I can't say that I am any less than disappointed about the loss. The ten point lead at halftime had some high expectations for the second half.

First thing we did not control was the defensive blitz by the Vikings, mostly what caused their scoring. Secondly our defense cannot stop opposing receivers. The run on the other hand, we looked like a Dick Labeau defense.

One that was in our pocket and got stolen.

Thoughts?

I've been hearing 'fans' say the Titans should not really try to win anymore games this season so they will have a higher draft pick next year.
I think the earlier they start to get a winning culture in the locker room the better, what do you guys think? ( Besides, the rest of the schedule is hard enough without trying to lose.)

Thanks, Steve in Smyrna, Tn

Hey fellas,

It’s Joe in Kansas again. Well after some deep soul searching... I was wrong. I must have been in the liquor cabinet a little too much when typing up that last email. Thanks for the intervention. After the game at Houston I was left with a disgusting taste in my mouth, and after the firing of whiz I took a step back and realized, I believe my fear was getting someone else in here that will guide us up to mediocre status, and then just hover there. I realize mediocre looks pretty good when stareing up from the pit we've been in lately, but we can't become the Cleveland browns of the AFC South. Mike Mularkey I believe is a good coach but not head coach material. His 18-32 regular season record as a head coach proves that. I think he is a fine stop-gap for the team for the remainder of the season, but he will have to do a whole lot more then win a few games to convince me that he should be considered for the position permanently. Hoppy, I 100% agree about getting Ruston out of here! No coach can succeed with the type of talent (or lack thereof) that he's compiling.

Titans vs. Saints

I've said it before Mariota... Stud. This kid is impressive. I know he still has a lot of growing up, and progression to make, but for a rookie he's showing me more than Locker or Young ever did. Walker has emerged as a true receiving tight end. The defensive line had another nice outing getting to Brees. Aside from Orakapo's complete meltdown in the middle of the Saints drive I thought overall he had a good game. B.W. Webb had a great play intercepting Brees on a drive that looked like it was going to result in at least a field goal. Pretty impressive for a kid to step up like that after being brought up from the practice squad earlier in the week.

Players of the game

Offense: I have to split this one. Mariota- another great outing for him, 4 TD's and no picks. Just a solid outing.
Walker: Hot potato champion!! Incredible, 3 catches off of deflections. That's stepping up.

Defense: I'm giving this to the whole defensive line for creating pressure and making Brees feel uncomfortable at times.

Thanks guys I love listening to the show!

Hello guys,

I'm Joe, I live in Gardner, Kansas. I've been a die hard Titans fan for years. I gotta say I really miss the Steve McNair and Eddie George years…

Moving on from the yesteryears though I gotta say, I think we (as fans) should give whisenhunt a break. He inherited a horrible roster outside of Casey and I believe that Wright could be a great receiver if we had a few more weapons to go along him.. I've got to give whisenhunt credit for going with Mariota instead of trading the pick away for multiple picks, I certainly would have draft day, but after watching Mariota, with a better line and a few playmakers I believe he could become a true star in this league (if he can stay healthy).

Falcons v. Titans
The defense stepped up all game, the offense let them down. Another case of not being able to close out a game and finish an opponent off. Of course some of the blame could go on coaching, but players need to be held accountable as well. If we could close an opponent out just ONCE! I think that sort of thing can become infectious and games after that players can start feeling the (we've been here, done that) attitude it takes to win those games and not the (oh, here we go again) mentality that seems to be in the locker room now.

My players of the game
Offense: hard to choose but I'll go with Walker.
Defense: Woodyard

Keep up the great work guys!! I enjoy listening to your podcast.
Joe in KC

P.S. Go Royals!!
===================
Eric, Lindsey, and Michael.

I had to say something about this coaching change. Yes Whiz was awful, no doubt. However making Mike Mularkey the stand in head coach isn’t going to change things. It’s still the same system whiz left behind. I think this is going to be another lost season for us fans. I listened to every minute of the press conference about the coaching change and all that I had learned is  Mike Mularkey has no direction of his own for this team, and it didn’t sound like he was going to change much. and also ownership made it clear that all they care about is butts in the seats. STUPID.

listen i know that Mularkey was just propelled into this wrong but he had to have an idea this was coming and have had some kinda thought about what he would change with this team, but all he kept saying was, "I havn’t had time at all to think about what the team needs going forward".

I tell ya guys, give me a clipboard, I’d at least get this team to 5 wins with NO EXPERIENCE! what a dumpster fire!

Guys I don't even know where to begin after that game. I was prepared to give the team and the coaching staff the benefit of the doubt up until this point but that pathetic display has sent me over the edge.

Once again our secondary is making a case to be the absolute worst in the league. Whether it's giving up game changing deep passes or consistently missing tackles they are completely undermining the good work our defensive front has been doing. I mean how many time does Michael griffin have to miss a tackle before someone on the coaching staff tells him to wrap up someone's legs rather than hitting their chest.

Then there is our offensive line which we have poured both money and draft picks into and after all that investment what exactly are we good at? None of our backfield can run the ball consistently and they are getting our QB killed. On top of that the lack of fight the whole team showed after watching the number of late hits on Marcus was worrying. We just let them come into our house and smack us around. We might finally have a foundational piece in marcus which could allow us to claw our way back into significance but I have no confidence in the coaching staff to protect and develop him. Why on earth was he still in the game with a busted up knee when it was clear he was going to keep being hit. We cannot let what happened to RG3 in Washington happen to him.  I get wanting to win the game, but this kid could potentially be out starting QB for the next decade and we need to act like that.

I think the whole game was summed up by the last play of the game where mettenberger got absolutely destroyed by the blitz.

Rant over guys, love the show and hopefully Lindsay will be able to convince me we will beat the Falcons. Somehow.
