Tennessee Titans Vs. San Diego Chargers Offensive Recap


Mandatory Credit: Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE

On Sunday the Tennessee Titans traveled to San Diego to take on the Chargers and hopefully bounce back from a poor offensive showing the week before. Just to let you know, that didn’t happen. Actually they may have regressed from the week before.

The Titans put together one offensive drive that was longer than four plays on Sunday. Out of eleven drives, the Titans had one that was longer than four plays. One drive! One! They also lost the T.O.P. battle, 16:21 to 43:39. Absolutely horrible.

Jake Locker once again looked inconsistent in completing 15-30 passes for 174 yards with 1 int. and 1 TD. Locker is growing as a player and every game he plays can only help, but right now he can’t seem to complete 5 passes in a row. More than a few of his passes on Sunday were either high or they were hitting shoe laces. Locker does do a great job of spreading the ball around to different receivers. On Sunday he completed passes to seven different receivers.

The running game is nonexistent. Its not Chris Johnson’s fault. The blame lies squarely on OC Chris Palmer’s shoulders. There is no imagination in the run game. There is no commitment to the run game so it looks sloppy and it looks like guys are going through the motions. The run game has got to be a belief, it has to be a macho act of football. I’m lining up across from you and I’m going to beat the hell out of you. No matter what. We are not committed to the run so there will be no run game. Plain and simple.

The receivers played pretty well and it was great to see Kenny Britt back on the field. The lack of offensive cohesion is going to leave me very little to write about when it comes to receiver production on a weekly basis.

This offense has no identity. There is no cohesion and nothing flows within the game plan. I know its only been two weeks but there is simply nothing that is working and it looks horrible. For all the talk about how much offensive talent we had, there are no glimpses of any around.

What say you?
