Which is exactly why the Titans should have committed to hitting the QB, whoever the opponent was, every time they passed. Personal foul or not. Dehr Schwartzie, when the Titans did have a third down, had the DBs backbeddaling with a 5+ yard cushion on third and 7! Inexcusiable. Simply a free first down for the O. The Schwartzen D COUNTED on the opposition to make a mistake, instead of forcing the play to conclude quickly and therefore occasionally forcing the O into a mistake. I could go on but I think we both agree that a good DC would have his players playing to their strengths instead of allowing the O to operate in an unpressured scrimmage like atmosphere. The majority plays the D made were when a player would happen to dominate on any given play. based on the LBs last season the last thing the Titans should have wanted was for them to be playing in space. The Titans rarely blitzed and kept the LB in zone most of the time on passing downs. SCHWARTZ!!!! heres some numbers to illustrate exactly how passive the Schwartz D has been over the last two seasons. Year TD INT TD:INT PPG 2005 33 9 3.67 26.3 2004 29 18 1.61 27.4 Total 62 27 2.30 26.9 NFL-Total 1376 TD 1031 INT NFL-Avg 43.0 TD 32.2 INT 1.33 TD:INT 21.0 PPG Titans gave up 19 more TDs than the average NFL club over the two year period. Would be greater if the awful Titan D was eliminated from the data set. Titans got 5 less picks than the average NFL club, BUT the Titan TD:INT ratio was a whole TD greater than the NFL average. Heres a troubling little stat nibble. The Titans have allowed 188.8 points more than the average NFL team over the last two seasons. That is over the last 32 games the Titans have allowed 188.8 points more than the NFL average of 21.0. It is absured that the DC responsible for this football carnage would still be employed. For reference the 2001 Titan D allowed 191 points for the year.
