I was recently contacted by Patrick Starr of State of The Texans, a Houston Texans blog. Patrick asked me to answer 10 questions on the Titans for the up-coming division rivalry throw-down event on Sunday.
If you’re like me, you read everything you can get your hands on leading up to the game. Enjoy!
How has the loss of Kenny Britt changed the Titans offense and who has replaced him?
You don’t replace Kenny Britt. You also don’t replace Andre Johnson. The group tries and the only game we’ve truly seen the team prepare without Britt was the Steelers game. They’re great against the pass and I don’t feel that game fairly represented anything. Time will tell how the group plays but Nate Washington has consistently made noise this season so keep your eyes on him.
Who are some players to watch for on Sunday?
On defense, DT Karl Klug will probably have a few pressures. CB Jason McCourty has playmaking ability, and you’ve no doubt heard of Cortland Finnegan–the other starting corner. On offense, Nate Washington and TE Jared Cook should make the most noise. Hasselbeck seems to do good at finding both.
Is this game a good measuring stick for the Titans season?
I think this game will be a measuring stick for both teams. If you want to go to the Super Bowl, then the route starts Sunday for both teams. They’re going to have a battle royale for the division. It won’t determine the whole year or even who makes the playoffs, it will just prove a lot to the team that wins and vice versa.
