    Yes.

    I get it. You made a thread a month ago about how the defense was top-10. Sorry you were wrong again.

    There are so many bogus stats about this team that makes it seem like we're good but when you watch the games, the numbers lie!

    1. Numbers say we're a good rushing team...lie. Take away some late game home runs by Murray or Henry ie Texans or Seahawks game you know truly our backs were only getting 3 or 2 yards per carry

    2. Average to below average Qbs light up this secondary like they're playing madden. That's the truth. I can't recall one QB that didn't light us up. Okay, Kizer was bad but we barely beat the Browns. Kessler came in and lit it up!

    This defense is better than last year but still sucks balls

    Every single defense in the league performs worse against good passing attacks . You aren't really spreading any newfound knowledge by creating this thread.

    thank goodness this has been pointed out. I expect every QB to put up 300 on us every week. The coverage schemes are awful.

    If our offense play was consistenly average, we would be a 3 loss team right now.

    This, this, this!

    Has the defense been great? No.
    Should they be better? certainly.

    The defense has been plenty good enough though. If the offense was going at the level it did last year, the Titans would be winning games by a decent margin.

    If there was a stat for "Defense got a stop or held opponent to a FG but the offense went 3 and out or did little to nothing" the Titans would rank 1st in that category, guaranteed.

    Even a DECENT offense with this years defense would be a pretty good team.

    The offense is 18th in PPG this season. That's about as consistently average as it gets. Right in the middle of the road.

    The defense is 19th in PPG this season. Again, fairly average.

    This is an average to below average team, ie, the defense is not good. Keep giving the unit a pass though.

    Its not giving anyone a pass. When the offense doesnt produce and constantly goes 3 and out, you put the defense back on the field. When that happens, of course the ds stats are going to get ran up. If our o moved the ball with any consistence, our d would be off the field, not getting stats ran agaisnt them and getting rest to be better when they did come back on the field.

    Of course we are an average or slighty above average (if we win next week).

    However what i said is true.

    We have 8 wins. If our o plays average against Miami, Arizona and San Fran we are an 11 win team.
    The Oakland games as pretty hard fought and just lost. The Houston games seems to just be the day everyone chose to have a bad game. And the Pitt game, they are just clearly better than us.
