The death of Steve McNair has sucked most of the oxygen out of the air in the Volunteer State, which is still reeling from last season’s playoff loss to Baltimore.

But barring a rash of injuries this season, the Titans should be OK, if not the dominant team they were in 2008.

Albert Haynesworth, who helped collapse pockets all season long, walked away from Nashville on Day 1 of free agency, but the Titans feel that free agent signee Jovan Haye and draftee Jason Jones can fill in adequately. That’s important because pocket pressure is the key to a defense whose depth took a hit when several backups in the secondary left to free agency. Without pressure there could be problems as the linebackers are a bit undersized.Tennessee Titans 2009 NFL Football Future Lines

Twelve months after Vince Young’s strange goings-on, there is still little idea if the Titans will ever get anything out of him. There was enough concern about Young to give journeyman Kerry Collins a long-term deal, though, and you get the feeling the front office is just biding its time before cutting ties with Young.

Coach Jeff Fisher has bought in to the two-back system, and Chris Johnson and LenDale White produced last year. Johnson (the NFL’s only Pro Bowl rookie) basically got the ball to the red zone and White took it to the end zone.

Surprising stat: The Titans tied for the best ATS record in the league last season – 12-4.

Team strengths: The Titans like to dominate on defense, play field position and turn the ball over its risk-averse offense. That worked all year but may have cost them the playoff game against the Ravens, when Tennessee squandered 5 or 6 good scoring chances. But it should get them to 9 or 10 wins this season.

Team Weakness: The business model collapses if Collins goes down and you wonder what will happen to Young’s psyche if backup Patrick Ramsey moves in. There is always a concern that White might eat himself out of the league.

  1. I’m not convinced that Kerry Collins has a 10+ season left in him as this team overachieved in the regular season last year. The Colts and possibly Houston will be breathing down their neck this season.

  2. Matt Martz says:

    Tennessee started the 2008 campaign with a 10-0 record, but ultimately lost against the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the playoffs. QB Kerry Collins will be the starter this season for the Titans, with an able Vince Young in the number two spot. Tennessee will once again have a solid running game with the speedy Chris Johnson, and powerhouse LenDale White. The Titans have all five starters returning on the offensive line. The O-line only allowed Collins to be sacked eight times and the running backs ran for 2,199 yards last season. The leader of the group is 15-year veteran Kevin Mawae as center. The loss of DT Albert Haynesworth will be felt but this will still be a tough defense to face. The defensive ends will be Kyle Von Bosch on one end with Javon Kearse and Jacob Ford splitting time on the other. Tennessee will struggle some to score points this year and won’t be as dominant on defense as last season, but will still end the season with a 10-6 record.
