HEAD COACH MIKE MUNCHAK
(on if Andrew Luck reminds him of other quarterbacks)
Not really. You would never think he’s a rookie. I think he looks very comfortable. He looks like Peyton (Manning) on the play-action stuff. He’s very comfortable in the pocket. He moves around it very nicely. His eyes stay down the field. He’s not looking to run, he’s not looking to throw the quick pass. He’s going to give his receivers time to get open. I think he’s done a good job with that. He’s getting rid of the ball. He’s not taking the sack, but he’s taking hits because he’ll hold onto it to make a bigger play. You don’t see many rookies that will do that. He runs well, and he gets out of the pocket. He can hurt you that way, so he forces you to stay in your rush lanes. I think they scored a couple touchdowns last week getting out of the pocket. Great weapon for them, he’s going to be a special player. Unfortunately we have to play him twice a year.
As we prepared last week to take on the Buffalo Bills, we knew that we were going to need to run the ball effectively, force turnovers on defense, and avoid committing turnovers on offense. We knew this would be a hard-fought game that would likely come down to the final minutes.
My my my, how the mighty have fallen….First, I would like to acknowledge that in my previous article I optimistically stated I believed that after the season opener our Defensive Coordinator Jerry Gray would better prepare our Titans Defense in upcoming games, and that overall they would tighten up as a unit and begin to perform to the talent level that the fans know them to have. Even though I still believe that this could happen, so far I have been proven wrong. I did correctly state however, that Offensive Coordinator Chris Palmer still deserved to be fired due to his inability to give our team any sort of Offensive chance to win ball games, due his sub-intellectual inability to ever consciously put together anything resembling a winning Offensive game plan, leading me to believe that it is now to the point that Titans players are all now dumber due to his incessant ramblings during team meetings.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans on Monday agreed to terms on a one-year contract with G Deuce Lutui (Luh-TWO-ee).
Lutui (6-4, 338) has six years of NFL experience, all with the Arizona Cardinals. He totaled 93 games played for the Cardinals, including 72 starts and a start in Super Bowl XLIII. Last year, he played in 15 games for Arizona with no starts, but between 2008 and 2010, he started 48 consecutive games. Lutui was originally a second-round selection by Arizona in the 2006 NFL Draft from the University of Southern California.
The Titans current roster is at the league limit and a roster move will be made when he officially joins the roster.

With the 34-13 loss to the New England Patriots during the Titans home opener, comes a whole new can of worms to be opened and scrutinized by every arm chair Quarterback and Monday water cooler coach. The issues that I am about to present are ones that as a Coach and player, I have seen behind the scenes and that are currently materializing within our team.
Issue number 1) Offensive Coordinator Chris Palmer
Last season (in several articles) I let it be known that not only did I not approve of his hiring but in fact his inability to have ever proven himself as a Head Coach or Offensive Coordinator baffled me in terms of how he was still in the league.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Although summer’s official start is a couple weeks away, Titans receiver Kenny Britt has already put more than a toe in the water.
Britt is trying to return from a torn ACL and MCL before the start of his fourth season, and part of his recovery has involved running in the pool. He said the aquatic training has helped him because of the buoyancy the water provides.
“Running in the pool, you relieve all the pressure of your body weight,” Britt said. “When you’re on the field, it’s all your body weight and all your pressure. The water helps you relieve all that pain and all that weight, so it felt good. I’m going to test it out on the field (today).”
Britt has shown explosive play-making abilities in his first three years. He led the AFC in receiving yards (271) and had three touchdowns after the first two games last season, but suffered the season-ending knee injury against Denver in Week 3.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Chris Johnson is on a mission. The Tennessee running back insists he’s still the best in the NFL, and he’s working hard this offseason to make sure he bounces back after the worst season of his career.
Johnson has packed on 8 to 9 pounds of muscle as part of his strong commitment to the Titans’ offseason program.
It’s a dramatic difference from last year, when Johnson missed nearly the entire preseason holding out for a contract extension. He got his money, then the self-proclaimed best running back in the league ran for 1,047 yards. That was less than 13 others in 2011.
“I just know when I have been through the same things as everyone as far as camp and being on the same page as my offensive line, I feel like I am the best back in the league,” Johnson said Wednesday.
