The Titans won their home opener without their top three defensive tackles and their starting quarterback. They also had help from some unexpected plays.
QB Marcus Mariota was out with an elbow injury from last week’s game against the Dolphins. He has not been able to grip and throw the ball well since he suffered a late hit during that game. Other injuries are also plaguing the Titans.
The best word to summarize the Titans entire pre-season is forgettable. The games were low scoring, boring to watch and all losses. The loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-6 was really something that any Tennessee fan would want to forget.
Our much-loved quarterback Marcus Mariota had one stinker of a run. Mariota only played during the first half, but he only had five completions for 43 yards and one interception. Hopefully, we won’t see this type of play during the regular season.
On Wednesday, April 4 in downtown Nashville, the Tennessee Titans hosted a live event showcasing their new “Tradition Evolved” uniform design. Twenty thousand fans packed downtown Nashville on Broadway; the festivities included DJ Silver, live bands including country music duo Florida Georgia Line and former Tennessee Titans that had participated in the last uniform redesign back in 1999, Craig Hentrich, Blaine Bishop, Frank Wycheck, and Eddie George.
Throughout the entire 2017 season, there was a feeling that something with the Titans team was missing. Titans fans were sure that 2017 would be the year the Titans, would finally get nationwide respect and get in the Superbowl, but that did not happen.
The team lost games that they should have easily won, and the Titans never seemed to play a complete game where the defense and the offense were both performing at their best. I couldn’t figure out what the main problem was, but many Titans fans complained that the play calling was too predictable and not favorable to quarterback Marcus Mariota.
In the end, the coaches got the blame for the lackluster season and were axed. Ownership and the general manager Jon Robinson took action, and now the 2018 Titans will have to adjust to an almost entirely new coaching staff.
The Tennessee Titans announced that the team will have a party on Wednesday, April 4 to reveal the new uniforms. The country band Florida Georgia Line will be playing a free concert in downtown Nashville at Broadway and First Avenue as part of the celebration.
The band owns a restaurant nearby called the FGL House, and the location is just across the river from Nissan Stadium where the Titans play, a perfect spot for the big reveal. Florida Georgia Line was originally going to play a few songs for the event but decided to go all out and perform a full concert complete with fireworks.
Let the guessing begin! What will the new uniforms look like? Will they be a total transformation or will they be only slightly changed? Will the Titans keep the same color scheme or go in a new direction?
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?
