Two Titans Preseason Games Down, Two Losses

Official Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen //@ksc47

It’s not panic time yet folks. It is the preseason which is really just another practice session and a working job interview for the players. Last year the Tennessee Titans won just one preseason game and the team went onto the playoffs.

Head coach Mike Vrabel himself said that these first four games were just like an extended practice where the staff could see where they need to coach the players better. And of course, the first string players are only playing a series or two. We’re not seeing our #1 quarterback, or any other starters, for a full game. Fans may be chompin’ at the bit but the Titans won’t be racing full speed for another couple of weeks.

Jacksonville Jaguars, early observations

By Julie Dixon// @ABroncoNole

After seeing the Jacksonville Jaguars during practices, a scrimmage, and a pre-season game, there are a few observations that can be made.

I have no idea how they’ll do, but they won’t be beaten due to being out of shape. Head coach Doug Marrone is a taskmaster and until you’ve been under a Jacksonville sun at noon, you can’t imagine the heat these guys practice in. To his credit, Marrone and all the coaches wear black shirts.

 

Quarterbacks

Blake Bortles is, and most likely, will always be an inconsistent quarterback. Andy Dalton comes to mind. However, his lows were better than Dalton’s and he’s had more highs. It’s clear that he feels relaxed and loose. When he makes mistakes they appear more testing boundaries over making dumb mistakes. FYI, the guy is an athlete. After going two and half hours in the heat of the day, the team does wind sprints and he’s the first one every time. This guy will be a threat with RPO’s.

Don’t Be Down On Luck Yet

Ana Krasuski Official Colts Reporter

By Ana Krasuski // @ana_krasuski

Colts fans can’t remember an offseason with this much importance.

The Indianapolis Colts were named one of the league’s six most improved teams of 2018 by ESPN’s Bill Barnwell- not surprising after the last couple of seasons the Colts have had. Quarterback Andrew Luck has returned after two long awaited years on injury reserve and has been practicing with the team in training camp.

Head coach Frank Reich told Sports Illustrated,“Some of the progressions we’ve worked through, his command of the offense, to me those are things you watch. After one day of watching him in the huddle I was like, ‘O.K., we’re good, we’re gonna be alright.’ ”

What We Learned from the First Week of Titans Training Camp

Official Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen //@ksc47

What did we learn from the first week of Titans training camp?

Cornerback Malcolm Butler is a hit.  Left Tackle Taylor Lewan is Nashville’s daddy (highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL, $80 million).  Tight End Delanie Walker gets a contract extension and he has a guardian angel.  

New coaching staff is comfortable and having fun, especially defensive back coach Kerry Coombs.  Wide receiver mystery: why is Rishard Matthews on the PUP list?  The Competition: running back Derrick Henry vs running back Dion Lewis.

Get to know Ana Krasuski, our new Indianapolis Colts reporter

By Ana Krasuski //  @ana_krasuski

Let’s start with a little background. October 29, 2006 was my NFL epiphany.

On that day the Indianapolis Colts visited the Denver Broncos in week eight of their historic Super Bowl winning season. This is also the day that I fell in love with football and decided to become a Colts fan.

I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado but never felt that I belonged to the Broncos fandom, partially because my father is a die-hard Buffalo Bills fan and a bonafide Bronco hater. I never really knew which team to follow until that October day when I watched Peyton Manning rocket 345 yards and three touchdowns.

The return of Andrew Luck

Dayna O’Gorman Senior Sports Editor

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

The Indianapolis Colts return to their building today, starting their offseason program, and Andrew Luck will be joining them.

The Indianapolis Colts didn’t have much to be happy about in 2017. With the injury of quarterback Andrew Luck lingering much longer than anyone expected, his return to the team could be a game changer. Will 2018 be the year we finally see the revival of the team who just a few years ago had such potential?

Luck injured his shoulder back in September of 2015, although at the time, not many knew how severe the injury was. Luck missed the next two games, but then came back to play 4 more, but sadly his 2015 season was ended due to a lacerated kidney.

In the second week of the 2016 season, Luck re-injured his shoulder during a game against Denver. At the time, Colts owner Jim Irsay said Luck wouldn’t need surgery, however, Luck spent much of that season on and off the injury report. It was at the end of the 2016 season that the severity of the injury truly came to light. Luck had surgery during the 2017 offseason, and although it was anticipated he would return at some point, was never given clearance to play in 2017.
