Tennessee Titans hire new head coach, Mike Vrabel

Official Tennessee Titans Fan Reporter

By Karen Christensen //@ksc47

 

After the Tennessee Titans lost to the New England Patriots in the AFC divisional game, former head coach Mike Mularkey was set to negotiate a new contract with the Tennessee Titans on January 15th.  The Titans had released a statement the previous week after the win against the Kansas City Chiefs during the Wild Card round that the team was sticking with Mularkey and that he would continue to be the head coach.  What happened during the negotiations to extend and renew the contract with Mularkey?

Previewing an old school match-up of Jaguars and Patriots

Official Denver Broncos Reporter

By Julie Dixon//@ABroncoNole

 

The New England Patriots under head coach Bill Belichick, don’t lose in the postseason in Foxborough. This record has a chance to be broken when Belichick meets up against his old nemesis, Tom Coughlin.

Teams, coaches, and players try to outsmart Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. This won’t be one of those games. Doug Marrone and Coughlin believe in beating you with talent, playing simple, but effective smash mouth football.

The game will hinge, not on quarterback Blake Bortles, but on Jacksonville’s front five: defensive end Calais Campbell, outside linebacker Yannick Ngakoue, defensive tackles Malik Jackson, and  Marcell Dareus and OLB Dante Fowler. Brady will run if he has to, he will rush a yard or two on a QB sneak, but mostly he stays in the pocket and it’s up to those men listed above to push the pocket, snap after snap. Then hit him. And again. #Sacksonville doesn’t even need to sack him, just abuse him.

NFC championship game preview

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaane Herrera//@rxnlzbth

 

Both NFC divisional games were the edge of your seat entertaining. It was heartbreaking for the Saints.  Neither team lost by a mile, neither lost embarrassingly, neither lost because of mistakes (well, that can be subjective, I guess).  Both teams played great football and did everything they could to win. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough and now we are near the end of a spectacular season.

I mean, who predicted the Jacksonville Jaguars would actually make it this far?

From ‘Bama to Buffalo – Daboll named Bills’ offensive coordinator

Official Bills Reporter

By Mary Pesarchick //@HeyMom418

 

Last Friday, following a season where the offense finished 29th in total yards and 31st in passing yards, the Bills fired offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. On Sunday, before the ink was dry on the list of possible replacements, the team announced they’d hired University of Alabama’s OC, and long-time Western New Yorker, Brian Daboll, to succeed him.

Still not over the win

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth

Eagles 15 – Falcons 10

What. A. Game! I admit I shed a few tears out of sheer relief after that game.  It was such an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. 

Not to be a negative Nancy, but I have to point out the obvious.  Playing like he did the first half, quarterback Nick Foles, will not be able to get away with that against the Minnesota Vikings. Luckily, the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense came through and it resulted in a win.

Duuuuvaaaal Strikes Again in a 45-42 Thriller

Jacksonville 45 – Pittsburgh 42

During the 4th quarter in Heinz Stadium, chants of, DUUUUVAAAAL could be heard unabated in the AFC Divisional playoff game. While the score seems as if it was a close contest, not even Pittsburgh Steelers fans believed it as the camera showed large sections of empty yellow seats.

From their touchdown drive on their first possession to a game-sealing field goal kick by kicker Josh Lambo, the Jacksonville Jaguars shocked Steelers Nation. The Jags weren’t pretty and once again, lost most stats like first downs 22-28, yards 378-544, yards per play 6.2-7.0 and total plays, 61-78.

Jacksonville did win the stats that matter: third downs 8-14-57% 7-16-44%, 4th down 100% and 5 compared to 3 red zone trips with scores.

Coaching Changes In Seattle

 

By Shannon Sanchez //@ShannonSanchez3

It is the offseason.  One thing that kicks into full gear in the offseason is the Coaching Carousel, and boy is it going with the Seattle Seahawks

Coaching has dominated the week for Seattle. It started last Wednesday with the announcement that offensive coordinator Darrel Bevell had been fired, then followed closely with the announcement that offensive line coach/assistant head coach Tom Cable was also let go. Rumors abounded about defensive coordinator Kris Richard had a tenuous hold on that position.

The Titans Agony of Defeat

Hopes were high for the Tennessee Titans.  They were relishing the “underdog” role against the number one seed New England Patriots and were confident after getting an upset victory last week against the Kansas City Chiefs.  

Titans players were quoted in the press saying “it’s our time”.  They were confident in their quarterback, Marcus Mariota, insinuating that the Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady might be past his prime and due for a fall from the NFL throne.

At the beginning of the game, it looked like the Titans had a good chance to beat the Patriots; the Titans were first to score late in the first quarter when Mariota threw a 15-yard pass to rookie wide receiver Corey Davis for a touchdown.  It was Davis’ first NFL touchdown, a one-handed catch that got the Titans on the board and it felt like a breakthrough for the Titans first-round draft pick. Finally, during a playoff game, Davis made a big play. The glee didn’t last for long as the Patriots were able to score on their next possession and even the score.

Preview: Jaguars vs Steelers

Key Contributor, Jacksonville Jaguars

By Julie Dixon // @ABroncoNole

The Jacksonville Jaguars, a hard-luck team for a decade, are readying for round two in Pittsburgh. On their last outing, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger turned the ball over five times. The final score was 30-9. Can they do it, again? Be the upset winner in these playoffs?

Steelers fans will be quick to point out that the interceptions were flukes, and despite the Jags getting the ball back so many times, they didn’t put up many points. They’ll say the game was close until the second half. Finally, they’ll say that minus an 80 yard bust out touchdown, running back Leonard Fournette was kept under 100 yards.

Saints vs Vikings: A Preview

Official New Orleans Saints Reporter

By Christy Chauvin //@WhoDatWarriors

NFL Playoffs – NFC Divisional Round

The Minnesota Vikings offensive line may be a weak link the New Orleans Saints can exploit in Sunday’s Divisional playoff game.

The Vikings most recent game loss was on December 10 when they played the Carolina Panthers.  The loss to the Panthers is notable because the offensive line had to be reshuffled, and the Vikings gave up a season-high six sacks to the Panthers, including a strip-sack that lead to a Panthers field goal.

During that game Vikings rookie, Danny Isidora played left guard.  Rashod Hill struggled at left tackle. The Vikings were playing from behind and had to pass the ball to win.  Vikings wide receiver, Adam Thielen, stated “We have to put those guys in better positions by starting fast and scoring early because then they don’t know if you’re going to run the ball or pass the ball. It’s complementary football,” Thielen added. “I think that’s why we haven’t [given up many] sacks this whole year because we’ve been able to score points and take pressure off those guys.”
