Once Willy Jefferson bulks up, I think he could be a special player.

It's odd. Normally it's easier to find an outside pass rush then an inside one. With the likes of JJ, ninja, and Mitchell we will again have an above average inside pass rush. Now if only reed or mercy would produce we'd be in great shape. Looking forward i'd expect more picks and offseason acquisitions to help the outside pass rush. If we find it lookout!

My sentiments as well. If he gets some coaching and experience, could we possibly hope that Tuggle might be the future of the ILB position opposite Cushing and Jefferson might be the future at OLB as well? I have high hopes for both of these guys.

I know there is alot of talk about Joseph and the secondary. But to me, it still comes down to lack of a true stud at OLB to complete this D. Mercilus is going to have to start making big plays on his own SOON as our schedule is absolutely brutal these next 6 games.

The OL and OLBs are the key to our season going forward.

Duane Brown needs to get right. I don't know what's wrong, but we need the big guy to be the big guy.

I'm going through the game for the second time now. I'm not ready to say Merci had a great game, but so far (start of 3rd qtr) he's having a damn good game.

Good pressure, not great, not really good, but good.

He's having a great game on runs to his side, setting the edge & getting off his blocks.... not to shabby on runs to the middle or away from him.

Also fair to Mercilus is he didnt get his preseason reps like most others, so definitely not counting him out by any means in living up to his first round billing.

I think I've come to the conclusion that Reed will always be just above average against the run and JAG rushing the passer.

That said, I don't think I'm ready to replace him with Braman or one of the rooks yet due to their questionable run stopping ability.

Our D played well; the Titans just got away with too many non-calls on both sides of the ball - quite a bit more than us.

Well he's wasted space on passing downs. Move him inside or take him off the field on passing downs.

I wants to see some Willie Jefferson already.

Mercilus was being held way too much for no calls, same could be said for Watt but Watt has the strength to beat even holds while Whitney still lacks core strength. He needs to work on hand placement, to keep these tackles from grabbing & holding, can't the defensive staff see that? Either that or he needs to line up more outside, use his speed & see if his body lean can come off the edge. Maybe he needs to play left side? more right side dominant, struggles trying to pull left from right....looks fixable but try something

I didn't think our defense played as well as it seems. I thought the titans bailed us out with their play calling. Force feeding Chris Johnson even we we loaded up to stop it. I thought they should have moved locker around more and let him throw a little more. I get why they did what they did, but they needed to give him some safe throws with a run pass option built in.

When they needed to they went on a 99 yard drive. I think had Britt or whoever that was wouldn't have fought for extra yards on that third down pass towards the end if the game, they'd have gotten that first instead of it being 4th and short.

I'll take the wins however they come though. Still have some things I'd like to see them do better though.
