RTC: Battle enhancing running back depth
By Paul Kuharsky
Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans…
Defensive tackle Jurrell Casey and linebacker Zach Brown were playmakers in the opener and have the potential to be standout players for a defense that has lacked them, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.
Guard Chance Warmack made some mistakes and saw some new things in his regular-season debut, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Bud Adams, Eddie George and Steve McNair are on the list of 126 modern-era nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
To which I say: It’s a very thorough initial list. I don’t regard any of the three as Hall of Famers.
For Titans fullback Collin Mooney, Sept. 11 was a big factor in deciding to go to West Point, says David Boclair of the Nashville Post.
With Jackie Battle the Titans have their best three-man running back depth since 2007, says Boclair.
Warmack is preparing for his first chance against reigning defensive player of the year J.J. Watt, says Teresa Walker of the AP.
To which I say: It will be very interesting to see how he does, but let’s remember on base downs it will be more about right tackle David Stewart.
