  1. I think the bigger question is how hot should Robinson's seat be. He's the one who decided he needed a new coach whose only qualification was that he had a link the New England. He said they weren't maximizing talent, and yet after two years of adding talent through the draft and FA, they're now on the verge of imploding with the thought of 9-7 and a playoff victory being far out of reach.
  2. Reminds me a bit of Sam Bradford. Teams just kept giving that guy money and he had the injury excuse too. It's hard to just admit a top pick (or top 2 pick) in the draft just isn't what you hoped he was.
  3. No, he wouldn't (or at least shouldn't) have even considered zone. I started the play at the snap to keep the video file size down. Initially, Lewis was split out to the far right side and his man followed him back. It clearly showed man coverage, so there really should have been nothing for him to think about after the snap. Sure, Saffold was a big ol' pile of steaming shit on that play. It shouldn't have mattered. Marcus was under even more pressure on the Atlanta play and the ball came out. He's making the game harder on himself than he needs to for some reason. He can make that play - he showed it just the previous week.
  4. How long did he stand there in the first video? Second play should have been the same. This play is designed to get the first down - he isn't waiting on a longer route for a TD. He should have known to throw to Brown pre-snap based on the 1 on 1 and the DB cushion. Also pre-snap, he can see there are more bodies in the middle of the field, so there is no point looking there. There is absolutely nothing to think about here - take the easy completion for the first down. The ball should come out as soon as his back foot plants. Did you even bother watching both videos?
  5. I just read the board now. I kind of gave up posting a couple of years ago when most of the board went full retard blaming the coaching. Trying to correct/argue with all of the idiots takes too much time and just raises my blood pressure. I'm too old for that, so I just leave it to you young guys. Feeling nostalgic today I guess, so just thought I'd post a couple of videos to make a point - not that it'll do much good.
  6. This is how you play QB From the Atlanta 23, Davis runs an out and has 1 on 1 coverage with a DB giving a huge cushion. Marcus lets it fly before Davis even starts his break. Easy completion (TD is a bonus). This isn't Smith remembers how well that route worked last week and they're at the same position on the field (Buffalo 24), so he dials it up again except to the other side. Brown runs an out and has 1 on 1 coverage with a DB giving a huge cushion. Easy completion, right? Brown is wide open, but Marcus stares at him, holds the ball, looks to find another receiver (hint: you aren't going to find someone more open) and finally takes a sack.
  7. Anyone know what happened with the bar fight Sharpe was involved in? I assume no police charges were ever filed since that would have been newsworthy. Did the lawsuit/countersuit get settled or are those still pending? Any potential NFL suspension still looming for Sharpe or does that only apply if he beats up a wife/girlfriend instead of some random drunk?
  8. Not sure if these Casey quotes from yesterday where posted or not. Hopefully this is true and he'll be even better this year. http://www.titansonline.com/news/article-4/Titans-DL-Jurrell-Casey-I-am-10-times-stronger-than-I-was/975c2fc5-60d8-47f5-8a37-4d6511885bdc
  9. ... and somehow manage to stay healthy and play all 16 games.
  10. We ran a little over 1000 plays, which you can see above. You seem confused about what a percentage is. 23% is the percentage of the total snaps. Comparing snaps counts without the context of the total snaps is what could be misleading. A percentage isn't misleading at all. No, I'm not going to give you percentages for every team. It took way too much time to do it just for the Titans. It's already a known fact that we ran more 0/1 WR snaps than other teams as illustrated in that twitter link. Love it or hate it, last year we used an offensive design that utilized those plays more than other teams. I'm just pointing out that those plays amount to only 23% of our offense.
  11. While we used 0 or 1 WR sets more than other teams, that still only amounted to 23% of the snaps. The other 77% was 2+ WR. In fact, our most common formation was 1 RB, 1 TE and 3 WR and we used that 401 snaps, which is almost 40% by itself. I posted this data before to show that 2 TE wasn't our most common set. Here it is again since it is relevant to this discussion. In this data, a WR is one of the WRs (Matthews, Sharpe, etc) and not a RB or TE lined up as a WR. Likewise, a FB is Fowler and not one of the TEs lined up as a FB. I differentiated between TE and OLTE, which is one of the OL (Kelly) lined up as a TE. Here are the number of plays including the pass/run percentage based on different personnel - 401 plays (77.1% pass, 22.9% run) 1 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE 192 plays (42.7% pass, 57.3% run) 1 RB, 2 WR, 2 TE 90 plays (31.1% pass, 68.9% run) 1 RB, 1 WR, 3 TE 78 plays (28.2% pass, 71.8% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 2 WR, 1 TE 65 plays (13.8% pass, 86.2% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 1 WR, 2 TE 47 plays (80.9% pass, 19.1% run) 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE 22 plays (22.7% pass, 77.3% run) 1 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 OLTE 22 plays (22.7% pass, 77.3% run) 1 RB, 1 WR, 2 TE, 1 OLTE 17 plays (11.8% pass, 88.2% run) 2 RB, 1 WR, 2 TE 16 plays (18.8% pass, 81.3% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 1 WR, 1 TE, 1 OLTE 14 plays (57.1% pass, 42.9% run) 1 RB, 4 WR 10 plays (30.0% pass, 70.0% run) 2 RB, 1 FB, 1 WR, 1 TE 9 plays (44.4% pass, 55.6% run) 2 RB, 3 WR 9 plays (11.1% pass, 88.9% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 2 TE, 1 OLTE 7 plays (100.0% pass, 0.0% run) 2 WR, 3 TE 5 plays (100.0% pass, 0.0% run) 3 WR, 2 TE 3 plays (33.3% pass, 66.7% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 3 WR 2 plays (0.0% pass, 100.0% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 3 TE 1 plays (0.0% pass, 100.0% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 2 WR, 1 OLTE 1 plays (0.0% pass, 100.0% run) No QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 2 TE 1 plays (0.0% pass, 100.0% run) No QB, 2 RB, 1 WR, 3 TE
  12. Maybe 2 and 3 TE were used more when the QB was under center or when the score was tied or when leading or some other situational stat. It wasn't based purely on number of plays though. The information I'm looking at from the NFL shows every unique lineup used and how many snaps they were used and I summarized it below. In this data, a WR is one of the WRs (Matthews, Sharpe, etc) and not a RB or TE lined up as a WR. Likewise, a FB is Fowler and not one of the TEs lined up as a FB. I differentiated between TE and OLTE, which is one of the OL (Kelly) lined up as a TE. Here are the number of plays including the pass/run percentage based on different personnel - 401 plays (77.1% pass, 22.9% run) 1 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE 192 plays (42.7% pass, 57.3% run) 1 RB, 2 WR, 2 TE 90 plays (31.1% pass, 68.9% run) 1 RB, 1 WR, 3 TE 78 plays (28.2% pass, 71.8% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 2 WR, 1 TE 65 plays (13.8% pass, 86.2% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 1 WR, 2 TE 47 plays (80.9% pass, 19.1% run) 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE 22 plays (22.7% pass, 77.3% run) 1 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 OLTE 22 plays (22.7% pass, 77.3% run) 1 RB, 1 WR, 2 TE, 1 OLTE 17 plays (11.8% pass, 88.2% run) 2 RB, 1 WR, 2 TE 16 plays (18.8% pass, 81.3% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 1 WR, 1 TE, 1 OLTE 14 plays (57.1% pass, 42.9% run) 1 RB, 4 WR 10 plays (30.0% pass, 70.0% run) 2 RB, 1 FB, 1 WR, 1 TE 9 plays (44.4% pass, 55.6% run) 2 RB, 3 WR 9 plays (11.1% pass, 88.9% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 2 TE, 1 OLTE 7 plays (100.0% pass, 0.0% run) 2 WR, 3 TE 5 plays (100.0% pass, 0.0% run) 3 WR, 2 TE 3 plays (33.3% pass, 66.7% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 3 WR 2 plays (0.0% pass, 100.0% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 3 TE 1 plays (0.0% pass, 100.0% run) 1 RB, 1 FB, 2 WR, 1 OLTE 1 plays (0.0% pass, 100.0% run) No QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 2 TE 1 plays (0.0% pass, 100.0% run) No QB, 2 RB, 1 WR, 3 TE To further summarize based on just the number of TEs on the field (including Kelly as a TE) 537 plays with 1 TE 318 plsys with 2 TE 131 plays with 3 TE 26 plays with 0 TE 2 WR 2 TE was definitely more run/pass balanced with the majority of passing plays using 3 WR 1 TE. Adding another TE who can block and also be a real receiving threat could allow them to stay in 2 TE more often and keep the defense more off balance. But that assumes Mularkey/Robiskie would want to use a 2nd TE in the passing game more instead of 3 WR.
  13. Do you know where you got this information from? The data I see shows 1 TE was used more, but it is going to take me a bit to compile the data into something I can post. Just wondering if you based this on actual data or something someone else said.
