2011 NFL Preview: Titans Super Bowl XLVI Betting Lines

Superbowl 46 Betting Online – 2011 Titans Season Preview

Last season’s slide to a 6-10 finish not only ended quarterback Vince Young’s days in Tennessee, it cost longtime Head Coach Jeff Fisher his job after compiling a 146-120 record since taking the team over with six games left to play in the 1994 season.

Mike Munchak was handed the reins to the team as Fisher’s replacement. His first task, once the lockout was lifted, was to find a new starting signal-caller after Kerry Collins decided to retire this offseason. The Titans did draft Jake Locker in the first round of the draft, but still wanted to bring in someone with playing experience.

They settled on Matt Hasselbeck, the longtime Seattle veteran who became a free agent after last season. This is a great acquisition to provide some short-term stability to that position while Locker continues to develop into the eventual starting role, but there are plenty of other holes on this team that still need to be addressed.

Hasselbeck will definitely benefit from a running game that features Chris Johnson, who rushed for 1,364 yards last season after leading the NFL in 2009 with 2,006 yards. He will also be counted on to improve a passing game that was ranked 27th in league, but the current core of receivers could make this task a bit difficult.

The Titans leading receiver last season, Kenny Britt is mired in off-field troubles and is most likely facing some kind of suspension from the league, so expect the team to try and land a veteran receiver some time before opening day. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

The defense is littered with issues after finishing the season ranked 29th against the pass and 27th overall.

Tennessee used six of its nine draft picks to try and infuse some depth and youth into this unit, but will still need to look to free agency to try and address some of its more pressing needs.

The reality is, it could be a season or two before this defense shows any tangible improvement, making 2011 a major rebuilding process.

The recent player lockout will definitely work against the Titans as Munchak is already way behind the curve as compared to the other teams in the division.

This season’s success or failure, especially in the early going, depends on how quickly he can close this gap.

The bottom line is, this team will be hard-pressed to stay in the AFC South race this year against teams such as Indianapolis and Houston as the current gap is just too wide.
