Titans assistant defensive line coach Nick Eason is working his way up quickly, says David Boclair of the Nashville Post.

Analyzing the Titans at quarterback with Tom Gower of Total Titans. As for hopes of an upgrade over Ryan Fitzpatrick as a backup to Jake Locker: “The Titans will not get a veteran backup clearly better than Fitzpatrick. That's basically a given, considering the need for quality quarterback play in the NFL and the paucity of good options. Any clearly better player will go somewhere where they will be the presumptive starter and paid like it.”

The Super Bowl provided a perfect example of why the Titans need to concentrate on upgrading in the trenches, says Will Lomas of Music City Miracles.
