Game Summary

The Titans got the ball first and, despite the hype around Henry, mostly went to the air to move down the field, including an extra ironic Derrick Henry touchdown pass. This was helped by an untimely Frank Clark offsides penalty on 3rd and 6. The Chiefs offense was a little less sharp, as they stalled around midfield due mostly to a false start penalty and a sack on 3rd down. But a nice punt provided a silver lining by giving the Titans the ball on their own 2 yard line.

The Titans tried to use Henry to dig themselves out of the hole, but it didn’t really work so they tried a pick play that got called, so facing a 3rd and 9 they just ran a screen and managed to get that first first down. After getting out of that perilous situation the Titans aired it out deep down the field to Julio Jones (which was ruled complete after a long review). Then after a couple more short plays that went nowhere the Titans apparently realized they could just throw it down the field at will and scored on a long touchdown pass to AJ Brown to close out the 1st quarter.

The Chiefs offense struggled again, as Mahomes got pressured again on a 3rd and long, forcing a quick punt. It became clear that the Chiefs couldn’t afford that as the Titans effortlessly move the ball down the field again. The defense did eventually manage to tighten up and force a field goal, but it was still 17-0 when the Chiefs got the ball for the 3rd time.

It went from bad to worse, as Mahomes continued his streak of throwing interceptions as he tried to squeeze it into tight coverage and the Titans got the pick off the deflection. And as they did all day the Titans moved downfield with little issue, the only time they were in a tough spot a penalty bailed them out.

The Chiefs tried to do something on a 2 minute drive, even pulling a cool lateral play out of the bag of tricks, but a Mahomes fumble on a long run gave the ball back to Tennessee yet again. The defense got a clutch sack to prevent a touchdown (or slightly easier field goal), but the Titans still expanded the lead to 27-0.

The Chiefs offense decided they wanted to show up, and despite a couple penalties moved down the field and narrowed the game to 27-3. The Titans looked like they were on their way to another touchdown, but a great interception from Willie Gay stopped the Titans without points for the first time all game. The Chiefs had another long drive, but a penalty and a sack forced a long field goal that Butker missed (his first miss of the season.

The defense finally managed to force a punt, but the Titans’ punter pinned the offense on their own 3. The offense drove down the field, converted a long 4th down, but failed to convert an even longer 4th down where Mahomes got injured, and that’s all I feel like writing about.

Look i don’t see why the defense can’t go balls out and blitz more and use more risky coverages.

They have one of the best offenses in the league so defense take advantage of that and if you blow it the offense is more likely to pick you you up than the defense picking the offense up.

Advantage goes to the defense when we are down 14 points.

Take some risks on defense because they’re not stopping them anyway.

Here is a problem that connects the dots – Our tackles struggle on obvious passing downs. Our running back can only help one of them. Have the tight end chip the other – well that helps slow down our best weapon in Kelce. If you put a second TE in the game to help the tackle, there are now only three people looking for the pass. Kelce will be mugged – Hill will be double covered and that leaves DRob, Hardman, or Pringle as the final option. Put the others out on a route – the tackles are back trying to protect Mahomes with no help.

He can’t stop speed rushers that line up wide.

If the score had been closer, the end would not be able to line up that wide because he would be out of position for our rushing attack.

Worth trying? Move to a 5-2-4 for part of the game or a 5-1-5 for the more pass oriented teams. Bolton and Gay as the LBs in the first and Gay in the second. Roll Fenton out as the third corner – add to Mathieu, Thornhill, Ward, and Sneed. Maybe the extra lineman will give our front four – now five – some extra push. I would start Wharton, Saunders, Nnadi, and Danna – with Jones allowed to free lance along the line. Reed can sub in the middle. Clark can become the designated pass rusher – yeah, I know. Okafor is put on the bench, cut, or executed.

For once, I would like to see a Reid led team come out and dominate from kickoff. For some reason, more often than not we have to dig out of a hole. I’d like to see a team that has it’s head on straight for 4 quarters.

Fair game to talk about replacing but – Brown, Remmers, Williams

Fun little project that needs to be demoted and replaced with Josh Gordon – Hardman

CUT HIS ASS NOW – DRob

The thing about that is that those top guys have to play the best week to week. And none of them have played up to their potential for most of the year – and that’s why we are underperforming.

Hard to pass when you are being constantly pressured with no open targets. Hard to catch when you are mugged and/or double teamed. The effort is there – but three guys cannot win every football game.

When you pay a guy $500M, it’s naturally going to limit the other parts of the team. He has to overcome. Simple as that. I’m not one to make excuses. I don’t really care for feel good nonsense, just like to tell it like it is.

Agree our Oline still has some major problems, but there were a lot of pass plays where Mahomes had plenty of time to throw and threw it at the receivers feet or shorter or completely overthrew the receivers, can’t fault the Oline for every bad QB play…his head is somewhere else this season.

Ok, in a desperate attempt to find something good about today, I give you the following:
In 2019, the last team to beat us was the Titans, and it was in Nashville. That team looked like it was going nowhere. Today was also in Nashville. We lost and look like we are going nowhere. I can’t believe they are falling for this again. We have the league right where we want them.

The play calling is not the huge issue – ninety percent of the time it is not the problem but when you have crappy players trying to execute the game plan – you see what we get. That said, Andy needs to be scheming how to free Kelce and Hill up more.

EAFOX
EAFOX(@eafox)
10/24/2021 3:50 pm

Hard to get into a rhythm as a quarterback when every potential receiver is crap except for Kelce who is mugged and Tyreek who is sent deep. And that is when you have tackles who are struggling to keep the opponent away. You are actually observing his greatness by pulling out three wins so far and being competitive in all but two games.

I think that is partially true about the receivers but after 7 games, it appears to me that the NFL has figured out our offense. Reid usually comes up with new schemes and wrinkles but it doesn’t seen like he did this off season. Every team evolved but we didn’t seem to.

This offense has become reliant on Mahomes scrambling and making ridiculous plays. That is unrealistic and not fair to Pat. We need to get Mahomes back to the fundamentals and stop going for highlight reel plays. He needs better protection but he needs to see the underneath stuff too.

I say screw the money and cut Clark now. Send a message to everyone else. Cut Okafor as well – how he is still getting playing time is beyond belief. Any two jokers that we replace them with have to be better. Put Jones back in the middle. Danna has been consistent so you take snaps away from him. Wharton makes a play last week so he does not become part of the rotation. Our one hope to get on a run is that Jones plays like a superstar for the second half of the season and we find one guy who steps up with him.

We should have kept Tim Ward. He came from nowhere late last season (first time I recall hearing his name was in the Falcons game) and always was at/near the ballcarrier, making plays.

And we cut him?

Our defensive line sucks, blows and everything in between. Our defense sucked today because they got no pressure whatsoever. Mahomes was pummeled but we can not touch Tannehill with our front four. We did a great job containing Henry but with no pressure – our secondary could not contain Tannehill. They were in decent position most of the game but it does not matter when you can sit back forever.

Defense – we have a good secondary but they cannot be expected to cover forever and they start to play tentatively when there is no pressure. Ward, Sneed, Fenton, Mathieu, and Thornhill are pretty solid. Bolton moving to the middle was good and Crazy Gay showed he can make plays – Make them the permanent starters. Hitch can be the third LB for runs and GD Niemann for pass plays – we can survive if they are the eleventh best defender out there. BUT they are not cause….
