Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans ...

"[Kenny Britt] defended his latest social-media comment and his effort as a player. He bristled at the suggestion he’s selfish. He said he’d love to play for the Titans next year.” Jim Wyatt’s story from The Tennessean.

Bernard Pollard questions his big fine, Kendall Wright talks concussion, Rob Turner has a hold on the center job and an injury update, from The Tennessean’s notebook.

Offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains will be 33 soon, and ranks as the youngest coordinator in the NFL, says David Boclair of the Nashville Post.

“... [T]he Titans came into 2013 wanting and needing to rely on their run game. Yet in three crucial situations on Sunday -- the fourth-and-1 from the 39, the safety, and the four-minute drill -- they couldn't run the ball when they wanted to and had to, even if the Texans knew a run would be coming.” A film review from Tom Gower of Total Titans.

To which I say: As Gower points out, even the best running team won't be able to run it well every time. But his overall point is a good one. The Titans still have a lot of room to get better as a rushing offense.

Pro Football Focus thought Moise Fokou had a bad game at Houston and thought Collin Mooney played well.
