It finally happened!!!!!. The Titans have won the Super Bowl!!!! A 21-13 victory over the Washington Redskins got Coach J and owner CoachBrianG their first Super Bowl! The rematch of last years Super Bowl that the Redskins won handily was a completely different game this time around. The Tennessee defense dominated and with the Redskins at the 5 with a chance to score and tie the game with under 3 minutes to go, the defense came up with a huge 4th down stop. Superstar DT Jamarious Mckie came up with 2 sacks and the huge fumble recovery on the 4th down to seal the victory.
The Super Bowl was exciting and Coach J can finally get the money off his back that he can’t win the big game. With many owners in the league denouncing the Titans and saying that they are not a good team as only fueled the fire of this Titans group that returns all but 2 starters on both sides of the ball. CMC was traded for Rueben Foster to boost the Titans run game.
Star RB LeTevin Phillip will take over full time and Coach J expects a huge season from the young running back. Phillip finished the year with 1397 rushing yards and 23 TDs on the ground. He also added 151 yards receiving and another touchdown. Phillip taking over full time means that he will now line up next to DeCicco in shotgun, replacing CMC who had 761 total yards on the season, with all of those coming from the shotgun. We are excited to see Phillip reach his full potential this season.
OFF SEASON MOVES:
TRADED: CMC and a 1st for Rueben Foster
Signed: FA WR Adam Thielen, FA Kicker YoungHOE Koe, FA FS Jaquiski Tartt
Drafted: WR Anton Newsome
Traded: THE FISH to the Rams for a 2nd and then drafted the worst running back ever because we didn’t know our pick was up. CoachBrianG, the owner, was heard blaming the awful blunder because he was on the phone with his mistress. Everyone in the organization was heard saying words that I can not write, it seems CoachBrianG’s awful language is rubbing off on everyone un the organization
MISSED: Titans tried to resign FB Pat Ricard after the super bowl but he wanted to test the market in FA. We went heavy after him but at the last second the Seahawks snuck in and got him. The Titans also were sniped by the Redskins for a backup DT to Mckie.
Looking Forward (defense):. The Titans got a year older. Their Defense, which is the staple of their team, has started to age but with the end of the cycle coming, Coach J is committed to this group of guys. Expect the Titans to stay in a 3-4 with the addition to Reuben Foster. Foster will likely play OLB in this defense, his speed and skill will be vital as last year the Titans rolled with 71 overall Kemoko Turay. The DL has Jamarious Mckie at DT, he is going to be a stud and finis this cycle as the best DT in the league. At DE, the Titans are old, they were unable to get a DE in FA or the Draft and now are rolling with David Irving and Jaball Sheard again. The Titans were first in the impact score last season so the hope is Irving and Sheard can do their job in this Titans scheme and help the create turnovers. The secondary is loaded with Marshall Frazier and Deandre Southward at the Safeties. Dante Jackson and Jourdan Lewis are the lockdown corners and there are only a handful or receivers that will beat them 1v1 this year. Old man Desmond Trufant, who refuses to retire, had to be franchised tag and is making a lot of money to play the nickel. Trufant had an INT in the Super bowl against the Redskins.
Looking Forward (offense): We discussed it earlier in the is article but this offense is going to revolve around Letevin Phillip. Phillip looks to have a career year and cement himself as one of the best running backs in the XCFL. DeCicco will be throwing the ball to Hopkins and Washington again but lost Corey Davis. To replace Davis, the Titans brought in Adam Thielen. Thielen will split time though with the #32 pick Anton Newsome. Newsome had 82 yard receiving in his first preseason game and it is likely he becomes full time. The Titans offense needs to do what they did last season limit turnovers, have long drives, and finish with touchdowns.
With a loaded schedule, we shall see if the Titans can run through it and make another playoffs and maybe get to the Super Bowl.
