    The Titans wound up with some unusual numbers in the passing game following Sunday’s win.

    Slot receiver Kendall Wright, for instance, was only on the field for 19 of the team’s 67 offensive snaps. In addition, talented starting wide receiver Kenny Britt caught just one pass – and it occurred on the Titans’ first snap from scrimmage. He was only targeted one other time during the contest.

    Titans coach Mike Munchak said the team’s reliance on the run was a big factor in both of those players having quiet afternoons.

    “We weren’t doing a lot of three receivers,” Munchak said of Wright’s situation. “We were doing a lot of one receiver, two receiver, more than we were three. So that limited his reps. That was probably the biggest part.”

    And why was Britt, who was on the field for 43 snaps, thrown to just twice?

    “I think the way we were calling the game, the opportunities just got limited for him,” Munchak said of the Titans, who ran the ball 42 times and threw only 20. “But some of the calls, the way they were playing coverage, took some of (Britt’s opportunities) away.”

    that TD at the end of the half was awsome!

    scrubbed like 6 or 7 mins off the clock running a 12ish play 45 yard drive - 4 yards at a time and the stoolers could only absorbe it. Everyone knew what was comming and there was zip pizzburgH could do about it.

    Awsome!

    Truth hurts, homeboy. Being a fan does not mean I have to have high expectations of a player. And it's always good to know how to spell an insult before you give it out. :)

    I suppose you were a big fan of Ben troupe, Donnie nickey, rob reynolds, david givens,lamont thompson, and every other do-nothing player that has graced this team, simply because they were Titans.

    I've been on this forum since 2005, and hung around here before that. Call me a fake fan or turncoat if you want, but I've been around for worse times than these, and a few better times. And I have the right to say when I lack faith in a player.

    How does he not limit passing numbers? Not an extremely efficient QB, and the staff has more faith in the running backs than in JL. So, of course he limits passing numbers. You don't draft a top 10 QB to be a game managing Kerry Collins 2.0.

    This is Paul Harvey, good day.
