The Bengals aren’t ready for the physicality they will encounter when they come to Nashville.
When they have played that type of game they lose.
Worst football takes, ever?
I know the Titans pretty well. I've been on this site for over a decade, lived in Nashville 30 years, attended the first regular season home game, and have followed them the entire time. I know their personnel and the context of their wins and losses. So, I know that bringing up Cincy's loss to the Browns is about as useful as me bringing up your loss to the Steelers (who are a terrible team) or like bringing up both of our losses to the Jets. In other words, none of those games have very much to do with where each team is now. So, moving on...
What can you all tell me about the Titans D, schematically? Is it pretty set from week to week or are they flexible depending on opponent? I'm curious how they might try to handle our receivers. Lots of zone? Man-to-man?
Friday when they announce he's off of IR is going to be better than Christmas!
We have played a lot of Cover 1 & cover 3 this year. Also a decent amount of cover 4. But seems like we have done a much better job of disguising the coverage pre snap. Moving our safeties around to make the QB think and hold the ball a little longer post snap.
Show cover 4 and drop a safety down to play robber and it’s man to man or cover 3. Stuff like that. We also run a lot of stunts up front with our DL. But can’t do that on 3rd and short. That only works when the play takes time to develop. Which I think can be a good neutralizer for the Bengals down the field passing attack.
Fulton and Chase should be a fun matchup. Jackrabbit is not bad but not great either. He can be burned but overall has done a a decent job keeping everything in front of him.
Our safeties are playing really good football and help in the run game too.
Our LB’s are mostly run stuffers but David Long Jr can hold his own in pass coverage. Titans have actually been one of the best teams in the NFL against TE’s this year.
We have had some inconsistencies in the slot. Molden is a rookie and has been up and down. But we do have some depth that con rotate in if needed.
We can and will generate pressure with 4 men, unlike last year. We will also blitz some. We play man and zone and sometimes both at same time. Last half the season the titans have been top 3 to 5 defense in the league. All pro safety and hooker is underated.
Cunningham solidifies the MLB, great pick up from Houston ( led league in tackles couple years ago), Long and Brown can cover and hit and we have Evans as well.
Dupree just now healthy and Harold Landry is relentless. Fulton is very good NFL corner, if there is a weakness it is at corner but the pressure makes up for it. Autry and Simmon are excellent with pressure up the middle as are our LB's. That to me has been a weakness of Bengals pressure up the middle, Burrow does great job on the edges. Turn on the Rams tape from Monday night football and watch that defense. We were missing guys then, we are not now and rested!
Pressure is their scheme changes week to week based on opponent. Titans do nice job in game adjustments on defense. Watch thursday night game with 49 ers tape. They started great then got shut down last 2.5 quarters
I do think Bengals have advantage at qb, wr ( although if Jones stays on field and Brown is balling it is much closer than people think, Boyd is a stud #3 wr that gives Bengals advantage), and Big advantage at kicker.
I do think titans defense is much better and titans offensive line is better and if Henry is back we have best rushing attack in the league.
Saturday is going to be fun! I do think the Bengals could have issues with physical play in the trenches both sides of the ball. As is most games the team that does not turn it over wins. I do think Bengals have great passing attack and Joe Mixon is better than most of america thinks. I fear him in passing game more than run game
Tennessee's main advantage is we arrest people who pollute chili with chocolate. Felony in most counties
Agree with most of this. I can't believe you all have 2-calves Bullock
Our D is a bit underrated. They're a pretty solid unit whose biggest weakness, really, is not having another stud pass rushers beyond Hendrickson. If you're able to neutralize him, then our rush loses some teeth and you can start to pick us apart with longer developing routes.
Even so, they've had some dominant performances this year and have good talent at all three levels.
We've been very solid against the run this year (DJ Reader is a stud), but the DT injuries we are dealing with right now are a problem.
