    Another week, another interesting Titan on a signature stat by PFF.


    This time, we see how well Kenny Britt has done when he's on the field.

    This stat is basically a big combination of how much you're on the field, how many yards you've gotten, and, part of that, revealing how big a part of the offense you are when on the field.

    http://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2012/07/09/three-years-of-yards-per-route-run-wide-receivers/

    At 2.43 Yards per Run Route, Kenny has gained more yards per passing down than all but two receivers over the past three years - Wes Welker at 2.44, and Andre Johnson at a commanding 2.59.

    Very interesting to see Kenny doing as much as he has with his time on the field. Really solidifies how incredibly effective this guy can be when healthy. If he can find some fountain of health, this guy could easily be the next Andre of his era.

    Stats like this are not the end all in ranking of evaluating players but they are instructive. Without the injuries Britt would at least be a top 10 WR if not elite.

    We do have to acknowledge that players like AJ, Megatron and Fitzgerald are going to get more attention than Britt has gotten as a young player but the injuries have really hurt his progress.

    All this does is confirm what we all ready knew; if Kenny Britt is healthy he is one of the league elite receivers. In fact you could guarantee me that he could stay healthy for the remainder of his career I'd have trouble picking anyone not Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald over him.

    Look at the last 10 weeks in the NFL that he was healthy. He was the best WR in the league, statistically.

    Only we know this though.

    Preach the Britt love to fans of other teams (or NFL fans in general) and they probably won't know anything about him or how good he is when healthy.

    I know he was on pace to lead the league in yards and TDs before he went down. And yet we still go 9-7 somehow.

    Don't forget about that guy at the liquor store in my town. When he saw my Titans master card he was all like "yooo, Kenny Britt is a beast"

    Yea and 4.5 people on here will tell you it wasn't because of Hasselbeck.

    I'll be one of those 5. Locker outperformed Hasselbeck EVERYTIME he touched the field. Now whether or not he could have done that every game is a different story. But Hasselbeck was far from the only reason we had success.

    He didn't look too hot vs Cleveland. But it was Hawkins fault 100% Jake didn't complete a pass.
