Shaw Provides Big Play on Special Teams

Posted by Gary Glenn on October 11, 2012 – 8:24 pm

The Titans knew they were going to need some big plays against the Steelers tonight — and they just got one.

With Pittsburgh punting from its own 23-yard line, Tim Shaw shot straight up the middle and blocked the punt of Drew Butler. The ball bounced towards the end zone, where Jason McCourty recovered at the 1-yard line.

Two plays later, Jamie Harper scored from a yard out, giving the Titans a 13-10 lead with 14:14 remaining in the second quarter at LP Field.

You can see Shaw’s blocked punt right here.

After the game, Shaw said it was a play the team had worked on all week.

“It was the first punt of the game and we knew they would snap the ball quickly so I was ready for that,” he said.  “Coach (Alan) Lowry called a block and I just went as hard as I could.  I was ready for the snap, went as hard as I could, and they messed up and didn’t block me and I just took advantage of it.

“I can’t believe we didn’t score off it,” Shaw added. ” We had practiced it all week and had seen it on tape.  Seeing the opportunity, I was really anticipating the block, and if you don’t do that, you’re not going to get there.”
