The season started off to a shall we say, unwanted start. Despite a well played game by Special Teams and Defense, injuries to the offensive line reared their ugly head time and time again.
Garrard put up good numbers despite almost no real protection. He went 23/35 for 215 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTS. The two INTs are definetly a concern, however, how much of that was a result of constantly being hit and shoved around.
Rushing Offense: Wait we had one, the stats straight from SI.com are as follow
Taylor 9 attempts 18 yards
Jones Drew 5 attempts 13 yards
Rushing Defense: The Titans spread the field to run and did it effectively. Chris Johnson used his speed effectively and Reggie Nelson made an outstanding open field tackle at one point that kept Johnson for going all the way.
Coaching: I actually thought the coaches did a good job with adjusting and doing what was needed. We needed to throw often and towards the second half we begun to slow Johnson down somewhat.
Overall: It is desperately apparent we need offensive lineman. The unit has been decimated with injuries and the Titans D-Line shoved them around like it was nothing. Hopefully things are rectified by the time we go to Indianapolis.
