As far as judging the defense it is hard. It's been pretty lackluster imo. We have yet to face a top 15 qb. But as somebody said, we have been missing starters. And other defenses have struggled. But I'm not sure the extent the crowd plays into that...Sure, I know crowd noise means its harder for qbs to communicate, but imo not having a real off-season and pre season is probably the bigger reason. I think we will start seeing offensive numbers and points start declining. Remember offenses are always ahead of the defense in terms of cohesion. 

 

The Titans have a few unknowns on defense. Will we improve once players come back?? Is Clowney and Beasley just not in game shape & are they going to eventually dominate?? Is Vrabel better than he was in Houston??

Shade!  🌴🌳🌲

Evans just misses too many tackles in space. Mahomes made him look like straight garbage in the AFCCG. Unless he’s tackling in the hole or in the back field he’s no good

 

Pretty sure he was injured in afccg. Back to your usual drivel

Best thing that ever happened to us was Bowen getting Covid-19. Vrabel fixed a lot of issues in a short time with less staff. 

 

I expect our sack numbers to look a lot better after Sunday. Big Jeff got a rest. Clowney facing old team. Before facing the Jags, Watson sacked 4 times per game (17 on the year.) 

 

We need to press the shit our of Brandin Cooks and put a safety over the top. That should allow the sack to develop.

We never press so that's not going to happen.

I think Pees really rubbed off on Vrabel. In his one year in Houston as DC Vrabel apparently blitzed like a lunatic, using all kinds of exotic looks, and got torched. Granted they had major injuries but still. Pees is one of the more conservative DC’s but was so good with different zone looks, he just really makes offenses work for everything.
 

Fans love blitzing, and some teams do it very well, but over the years the majority of the best defenses rush 4. It becomes even more important in the playoffs, you just can’t blitz the shit out of the best QB’s in multiple games. Especially with QB’s who can move & already have more defined reads.

Gotta have the front 4 to consistently get pressure, we aren't quite there yet.

Sacks aren’t everything but it would be nice to pick up a few more. I’d bet we play more contain & rush the passer in a “safer” manner then just about any team in the league. Some teams prioritize sacks & are willing to live with over rushing the QB or losing contain, where some big plays happen. We don’t. But there’s enough talent on this DL to get a good amount more pressure & if we do, we could be real tough when Adoree comes back.

 

Were also probably the perfect system for Clowney, it’s a great match. He could be a great edge player for us for years averaging only 3-5 sacks with the way he pressures the QB without using a wide rush, and t he way he sets the edge.

Sacks would be nice, just isn't the defense we play.  We aren't a penetrating defense, Vrabel prefers the lineman hold their ground especially in running situations (outside of goalline).

I think we do when everyone is healthy.  Last week, we were getting pressure on Josh Allen, but Simmons was sorely missed in the middle.  I can't wait to see Simmons against Houston.

I think Evans really answered his critics with that goal line stop of Johnson today, one of several plays by Titans today that saved the win.

When he doesn't have to think and just react he is an animal. That's the problem

Evans is not looking good at all and was destroyed all game. Similar to that Jags game to end the season a few years ago: Titans were getting their ass kicked and Woodyard makes a tackle and flexes like the scoreboard doesn’t exist.

 

Apparently the only thing Evans does well right now is make tackles on obvious run plays. He’s getting exposed consistently and is playing like the Year 1 version. He’s looking like a guy that won’t get a 2nd contract here

I'm just trying to figure out why these guys are so bad on pass d.  It goes beyond well Joseph is playing there because Adoree is out.

The defense needs a real coordinator.  The idea that this defensive is good in anything, is just an absurd concept.  Does anyone think we win if the Texans win the toss?

 

Bueller?

 

Bueller??
