1. Pruitt’s SEC-Heavy Staff a Recruiting Coup
- Friday, January 19, 2018
It was early December, 2012, and Butch Jones stood in front of a podium after being named Tennessee’s 24th football coach.
“I can assure you,” Jones said at his introductory press conference. “We will put together the best football staff in the country. Not just in the Southeastern Conference, but the entire country.”
2. Mariota Finds His Swagger, Giving Titans Fans Hope for 2nd-Round Playoff Win
- Friday, January 12, 2018
About a month ago, following a Dec. 10 loss at Arizona, Marcus Mariota showed a seldom-seen side of his personality.
Clearly dejected, he seemed flustered and distraught while answering questions in his post-game press conference, even answering that he was “pissed off” about his performance when asked why he seemed more bothered than usual following the Titans’ 12-7 loss to the struggling Cardinals.
3. ‘Ugly’ Titans Offense Can No Longer Be Ignored
- Friday, December 15, 2017
It had been festering for weeks, but the Tennessee Titans seemed to push the matter aside as they were squeezing out close wins against the NFL’s third-easiest schedule.
“Winning ugly” is how it was seen through rose-colored glasses, with an 8-4 record as exhibit 1.
4. Titans Must Find, Fix What’s Ailing Mariota
- Friday, December 1, 2017
One of the biggest questions on everyone’s mind regarding the Tennessee Titans is what is wrong with Marcus Mariota?
After a breakout season in 2016, one in which he threw 26 touchdown passes and just nine interceptions, Mariota has endured a stunning reversal in Year 3. Through 10 games played – he missed one with a hamstring injury – Mariota has just nine touchdown passes and has tossed a career-high 12 interceptions, including an alarmingly high six in the past two games.
5. The Good (Youth), Bad (Injuries) & Ugly (12-9 Win at Cleveland)
- Friday, October 27, 2017
As the Tennessee Titans head into their bye week, they use this time to self-evaluate the first seven games of the season.
So, we are here to help them delve into what went right, what went wrong and what was just plain awful through the first seven games of the 2017 season.
6. Shaw Lends a Little Of His Courage to Titans
- Friday, September 15, 2017
There were more than a few missteps and miscues by the Tennessee Titans in Sunday’s season-opening loss to the Oakland Raiders.
But there was at least one thing that the Titans got absolutely right on Sunday and for the 2017 season.

- Wednesday, August 9, 2017

8. University of Memphis, UTHSC May Soon Face Outsourcing Decisions
- Friday, April 21, 2017
Forty-one state lawmakers signed a letter requesting the state put a hold on its outsourcing plans until the General Assembly can scrutinize its effect on state workers and services.
The state is set to sign a contract April 28 with Chicago-based JLL for facilities management work that could be used by universities and departments statewide. Even local government jobs could be doled out to the contractor.
9. Fans Finally Get to Enjoy Watching Titans’ Players in Pro Bowl Again
- Friday, January 27, 2017
For those needing a Titans fix this week, there are a couple of things to occupy your mind and perhaps pique your curiosity.
First, there is one last chance to get another glimpse at the 2016 Tennessee Titans, who finished a surprising 9-7.
10. Homegrown Titan Players Find First Taste of Success
- Friday, December 9, 2016
Those looking at the Tennessee Titans’ season thus far as half-empty see a 6-6 team with enough flaws to offset many of the positive steps that have been taken this year.
But for those looking at the Titans’ season as half-full, it is hard not to notice that the same 6-6 record that speaks volumes about this season has Tennessee in an honest-to-goodness division title race for the first time in eight years.
11. Titans Prove With Indy Loss They Aren’t There Yet
- Thursday, November 24, 2016
Are we there yet? We took a family vacation to South Carolina several years ago and heard the old familiar question from the back seat after about five minutes on the road.
The excitement of the destination had been consumed by the dread of the journey.
12. Johnson’s Impact on Titans Locker Room Will Outlive Tenure
- Friday, November 4, 2016
Outside of his game-winning touchdown catch that capped a comeback in Detroit, Andre Johnson didn’t do much on the stat sheet for the Tennessee Titans.
13. Titans GM Robinson Has Changed The Culture
- Thursday, July 28, 2016
Hope is what Tennessee Titans have to offer their fans when training camp officially opens on Saturday.
That hope is not to be confused with Super Bowl expectations. It is an optimism that things are finally headed in the right direction after several years of fluctuating between mediocrity and bottom-of-the-NFL barrel horrible.
14. Bipartisan Skeptics Doubt Haslam’s Outsourcing Plan
- Thursday, March 17, 2016
Poor timing and questionable numbers: That’s how legislators are viewing a business justification plan for outsourcing facilities management across Tennessee.
The Office of Customer Focused Government tells state senators, if all departments opt in, the state could save $35.8 million by the second year of a contract under study for building operations and services – without laying off state workers or cutting pay and benefits.
15. Titans Coaching Staff Turns a Grayer Shade of Blue
- Saturday, January 30, 2016
If experience is the best teacher, the Tennessee Titans’ young roster is headed to school – old school, that is.
Head coach Mike Mularky’s offensive and defensive coordinators – Terry Robiskie and Dick LeBeau – have a combined 80 years of coaching experience, Robiskie starting with the Oakland Raiders in 1977 and LeBeau with Philadelphia in 1973.
16. Titans Face Number of Questions As Season Ends
- Friday, January 1, 2016
The Tennessee Titans are on the clock. If they lose to the Indianapolis Colts in Sunday’s season finale, the Titans franchise will have the first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft for the first time since the Houston Oilers took Earl Campbell first overall in 1978.
17. Rotten to the Core: Titans Fail to Develop Talent
- Saturday, December 19, 2015
As the Tennessee Titans sink toward the end of another lackluster season, they head into the off-season with still more holes to fill for 2016.
Some of that, of course, is inevitable with any team as an NFL roster. Even on the best teams can have a 20 percent roster turnover in the off-season due to injuries, free agency and new draft picks coming on board.
18. Better Titans Doing Nothing for Whisenhunt’s Record
- Saturday, October 17, 2015
The whispers are already out there. How much job security does Ken Whisenhunt really have with the Tennessee Titans?
It seems a little soon for message boards and talk radio to be discussing the ouster of the Titans coach, but such is life in the coaching fish bowl when you lose games that should go into the win column, like the Titans have done in their past two games.
19. AFC South is There for the Taking
- Saturday, October 10, 2015
Some team has to win the AFC South. League rules require it, even if no team truly deserves to go to the playoffs.
It was proven last year when the Carolina Panthers won the NFC South with a not-so-tidy 7-8-1 record, a mark that required four consecutive wins to reach.
20. Mariota’s Toughness an Edge as Colts Come Calling
- Saturday, September 26, 2015
Two games in, it is still a bit too early to declare Marcus Mariota the franchise savior for the Tennessee Titans.
But one thing that stood out is that we may have learned as much or more about Mariota’s makeup in last Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns than we did in his week one shellacking of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
21. Square Roots
- Saturday, May 16, 2015
Lucy Woodson and George Saig went to lunch recently in Overton Square.
They chose Babalu, the site where the entertainment district began in 1970 with the opening of the former TGI Friday’s, just months after Memphis voters approved “liquor by the drink.”

23. Titans Should Follow Lions’ Lead in Overhauling Roster
- Saturday, December 6, 2014
Instead of CBS, Fox or even the NFL Network, the Titans might need to move to the HGTV, where experts take once-proud houses and restore them to their former grandeur.
Now losers of six in a row and 10 of their past 11 – with only a two-point home win against fellow patsy Jacksonville – the Titans are no longer treading the waters of mediocrity, as they had for the previous five years.
24. Titans Have Little to be Thankful for With This Turkey
- Saturday, November 29, 2014
It is the time of year that we pause to give thanks for all that we have in our lives.
But what do the Tennessee Titans have to be thankful for as they stand 2-9 and are mired in a five-game losing streak?
25. Future Looks Worse for the Aging Titans
- Saturday, October 11, 2014

What, you say?
26. How Much Longer Till Titans Fans Simply Stay Home?
- Saturday, October 4, 2014
Just for a moment, I’m going to let you in on something that not a lot of people know about.
I’m actually a Titans season ticketholder.
Of course, I don’t get to use the seats myself, since I’m working in the pressbox, but my wife and son like to go to the games on occasion to root for the home team and enjoy some football.

- Friday, June 25, 2010
