We entered into camp this year with 2 clear cut objectives: stop the run & return to a dominate ground game. Thus far we have failed. Stopping the run is the more important of the 2. We go t run over last year and now have given up back to back 200+ yard games in preseason. Even with the upgrades we added to the D during the off season, it is clear we are not even close to where we need to be. Injuries excuses do not hold any merit. It still appears to be an attitude thing. We need to keep our eyes on the wavier wires this week to find a monster that can jam up the O-line and allow our LBs to make plays. Add to that help in the DE department and things could begin to take shape. Hope seems to be doing a good job but Thompson appears to be a waste of oxygen. Don’t forget Cincy dumped him for a reason back when they couldn’t win games. Hopefully, cuts this week will produce a monster at SS that could come in and he stop the run without looking total stupid with pass coverages. On offense, our running game has shown times enlightenment. However the inconsistent performance thus far has been frustrating. I don’t see the need for TH. LenDale can better the running game for fewer dollars right now. JP performs well on special teams and is of better value for a #3 RB. Chris can provide some explosiveness if he can stay healthy and on the field. This week we ought to watch the wire for a super-speed back, like the one we saw last night or like the one that tore us up opening day last year. If such is found, then we can move both Brown & Henry. It takes more time for offenses to start to click. Game planning on D-fense will help as well. But our priority needs to be focused on fixing the D to return to total domination. Adding a few more ingredients to the mix will go along way returning to where a Titan team belongs.
