Good Defensive Pressure Early on for Titans

Posted by Gary Glenn on November 25, 2012 – 12:20 pm

The Titans have displayed good defensive pressure up front early on at EverBank Field.

On Jacksonville’s first possession, Sen’Derrick Marks tipped a Chad Henne pass that Alterraun Verner scooped up for his second interception of the season. That defensive turnover led to a 38-yard field goal by Rob Bironas and 3-0 Titans lead.

On the Jaguars’ next possession, rookie LB Zach Brown took Henne down for a two-yard loss. Later in the drive, Akeem Ayers and Jurrell Casey sacked Henne on back-to-back plays. Ayers’ sack went for seven yards, while Casey took down Henne for a 10-yard loss, which forced the Jaguars to punt.

Good pressure early on for Tennessee’s defense, which knows it can’t let Henne sit back in the pocket and find his targets.

    It’s time to clean house. Coaching staff and management.

    This loss hurts more than the Indy game a few weeks ago. We are last in the division. We played a solid Dolphins team and beat them up, then we go on a bye week with hopes to make a big run for the playoffs and lose to a 1-9 team.
    Defense played great today, and some how found another way to not win the game.

    Yeah, good defensive pressure early on, but at the end of the day, it was another overall poor effort by the D. I mentioned this on another blog, but this is now the second year in a row that we’ve lost a game to the worst team in the league (at Colts last year and at Jags this year), and no sign of when this embarrassment will end. Loved the sacks, but too many penalties and missed tackles, very disappointing to say the least. I guess at this point we should lose out to get the best draft pick we possible so we can fill some of the GLARING holes in out defense.

    We had 2 weeks to prepare for a 1-9 team and still got beat. Munchak your not an NFL head coach (PERIOD). And you still have guys on this board that will quickly defend Munchak. Why….havent you guys seen enough. I saw this last year when the Colts beat us late in the season. We finish 9-7 last year and that lost to the Colts cost us the playoffs.. Even Ray Charles can see that this team needs a new coach.

    The reason we lost is the offense not the Defense. Maybe if we get some smart players that can get on the same page as the QB we could score more Touchdowns. The interception at the end I still believe Cook ran the wrong route . . . this guy is like Chad Johnson . . . alot of talent but whats upstairs ? Dropped ball when he’s wide open for a first down. How does Williams not get his feet in on a perfect thrown ball ! I think alot of these guys would be let go by the patriots . . . the coaches put the players in a position to win . . . and the players blew it ! Don’t blame the coaches on this one . . . Jags almost beat the Texans last week . . . Hennen can throw the ball !

    Hey Tyler Rose ….how many more chances are you going to give Munchak.
    For some reason you dont see the problem here.. Our record is 4-7, we had 2 weeks to prepare and we didn’t get it done. How do you think we beat Miami?
    Mr Bud Adams had to threatened this team just to get a win.Munchak”s feelings got hurt when he felt his job was in jeopardy,so he went harder on his players like a Bill Cowher would do( week in and week out.) Again Munchak is not the guy for this job. We dont care about the drop balls or the miss FG,or Willams TD call back. IT ALL FALLS ON COACHING.

    Well Chris Palmer is gone, wonder who will be next. He was our 3rd choice for OC anyway so no huge loss, as long as we hire somebody who can bring our offense out of the cellar. I still say the D is playing worse than the O, so Jerry Gray has 5 games left to prove he can get the job done or he’s out too.

    Chris Palmer I wish you the best. I beleive the game has past you years ago.
    Its funny how he blames the offense struggles on a young QB. Well its alot of rookies that are doing a better job in their 1st year than what Locker is doing now.
    This falls on you Mr. Palmer. Now I do believe that Locker has a problem seeing over the Offensive line. but Palmer you cant throw alot at a young QB. You must keep things simple, as Locker learns you add on more… Your run an shoot offense is to much for a young QB….

    Munchak did what he had to do. Our offense actually moved the ball but couldn’t score TD’s . Our Offense had no Identity with Palmer . . . so hopefully this new O coordinator will give us an Identity. Locker needs to run a little more as well . . . like McNair. If we can keep the chains moving on Offense . . . our D will keep getting better. I sure hope this new guy works out . . . obviously I want Munchak to stay. But the main reason is I don’t like giving up on a coach too soon . . . look what Cleveland did with Belichek. I think Munchak didn’t want to give up too soon on Palmer . . . I think he thinks he may have something special with this new guy.

    Hey Titanman . . . what Munchak did was not easy. Let this guy try to build a complete squad. Its easy to say fire everyone . . . Munchak was put in a terrible situation to put this squad together. If the offense picks up . . . and the D doesn’t improve . . . he’ll have to make another hard decision. I know Munchak can do it . . . the players respect him . . . and he is a very bright guy. Go Titans !
