    A bigger defensive decline overall was from '18 to '19. The Titans were 21st in total defense in '19 after being #8 in '18.

    In '18, Casey had 7 sacks and Jayon Brown 6. Harold had the same 4.5 as a rookie he has now when you'd expect his production to be much higher.

    I agree some of the same players who were productive in '18 have regressed but I also don't think we've seen the development of Landry and especially Evans that needed to happen. Simmons is a young talent but he's not the pass rusher Casey was.

    The Titans need to find that one talent, like Kearse as a rookie was or Haynesworth his final season, that had a ripple effect making the entire defense much better.

    Aqutis30 Do you mind - NOT being a Motaur?

    Devante Adams was covered by Vacarro and Byard in the endzone and he just turned around the other way leaving them two standing there playing with themselves.

    No idea why but we had change of direction issues on both sides of the ball. We couldn't stay with their receivers on defense and on offense our guys weren't getting separation in their pass routes (Davis was pathetic). Many of Tannehill's completions were into tight windows and our pass protection failed making things worse.

    In reality Henry was not having that much of an off day. He gets stoned a few times early in games and was finding some room as the game went on but they had basically taken him out of the game with the score. At times it reminded me of the Pats snow game where the only guy who had any effectiveness was CJ.

    Byard was our highest rated player on defense per PFF. Not that was anything great but he was not as big of a problem as the other guys. Simmons might as well have stayed on the bus.

    That's largely true. Casey, Ryan, Correa, and Adoree until now are missing from last year. And other than King and Clowney for a few games we didnt replace that lost talent.
    It is certainly some combination of degraded personnel on D, and the loss of Pees & Coombs that have caused the drop off.

    Also, our offense is looking great while not really making any additions and losing Lewan. It's worth mentioning that the offensive numbers (at least passing) would not be as high as they are if the defense were better.

    It's rarely just one thing.

    Packers, both lines were overpowering the Titans. Tanny was rarely unpressured and normally had no one open to receive a pass.
    It's like all our guys were a step slower.
    This no pass thing is getting old and a big reason we lost against the Chiefs in the playoffs.
    I know attempts were made to make it better. I had hoped the addition of Clowney would free up better pathways to the qb . I was wrong, I admit it.
    I guess if I knew the answer, I might have the DC,s job if we had one.

    It is true he was the highest graded player, but he wasnt graded high, everyone else just was lower than him.
