RTC: Titans ready for read-option
By Paul Kuharsky
Greetings from Seattle, where we are reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans ...
The Titans expect to face some tricky read-option plays from the Seahawks today and from the 49ers next week. Ends Derrick Morgan and Ropati Pitoitua will face big decisions that determine what the quarterback does, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.
To which I say: Read-option has been less effective around the league this season. The Titans can’t be a victim of it.
Good tackling has been a big part of the Titans' improvement in third-down defense, says Glennon.
Morgan has a favorable matchup against Paul McQuistan, says The Tennessean in its game preview.
Three reasons to believe the Titans can have success and three reasons to think they will struggle from David Boclair of Nashville Post.
