    So our defense is 6th in the league in completion % and 8th in the league in rushing yards and 9th in yards per carry....we really have been playing solid defense...except for giving up big plays when things break down for the offense.

    Kyler Murray killed us with his improv plays. We shut Russell Wilson down pretty much except for some big plays off schedule....and we gave life to the Jets with the scramble deep throws.

    I really think that the defense is much improved from last yr.

    Its a Titans tradition to let scrambling QBs destroy our defense.

    It definitely is. Gotta fix getting beat deep, but everything else has improved a lot.

    Think that is what we both said. And it is true. It has shown substantial improvement from last year. If people don’t see that they are blind.

    Clowney is looking great in Cleveland, Dupree has only started two games and looks like damaged goods. Pain.

    Clowney was actually more productive at this point than Dupree has been. Yikes

    D has been playing better but basic things like soft coverage is killing us. Pass rush is leaps and bounds better, still rushing 3 now a bit too often. Dbs are a mixed bag. Fulton is holding his own but I thought Jenkins was average but stat wise he's having his worst year I think. Plus who we actually playing at strong safety? Whats up with hooker

    Landry is having an elite year. Leads the league in pressures. Tackles all over the place downfield. Please extend him.

    Autry looks like a huge pick up. D line as a whole seems good.

    OLB's still thin. Bud didn't get numbers, but you can tell a difference when he is out there. He contains and gets a consistent push. Adeniyi blew up week 3, then barely played last week which makes no sense.

    Kinda meh on the ILB's. Brown can't stay healthy. Evans hasn't played well. People love Long here, but he cannot cover people. He needs to be with a Brown type player (where's Monte Rice?) and not an Evans type player.

    Byard is playing great. The other safety is a weakness. Fulton is playing great. Jenkins has played like soft butter. Farley hurt, Molden has fallen out of favor.

    Team can actually get 3rd down stops, but still giving up those 2-3 busted play a game.

    Adeniyi played plenty but they used a bunch of four man fronts with Autry at DE and Landry hardly comes off the field and shouldn't.
