1. When, perhaps if, will rookie QB Zach Mettenberger get the first win of his career?
Looking at the schedule for the remaining 5 games of the season I don’t see a “W” until Week 15 when the Titans host former Titans running back Chris Johnson and the New York Jets. I hope I am wrong by predicting this but I’m going off what I truthfully think and not what I hope. The Titans travel to Philly this weekend to take on the Philadelphia Eagles. I am not afraid of Eagles QB Mark Sanchez, but I am afraid of WR Jeremy Maclin and the underachieving 2014 version of RB LeSean McCoy.
I am not a Sanchez fan, so I won’t ever throw too much love his way, but he is an NFL quarterback that can throw the ball and hit the ever-so dangerous Maclin in stride. Maclin is having a sensational year and he will abuse any of our secondary players whether its CB Jason McCourty or Mr. Defensive Pass Interference – Blidi Wreh-Wilson.
The Titans lost the closely contested Monday night battle with the Pittsburgh Steelers because every time RB Le’Veon Bell touched the ball it was good for 6.5 yards (on average). ” Shady” McCoy of the Eagles is an outstanding talent in the midst of a down year based off his previous campaigns, but the Titans horrendous run defense could give McCoy that spark he’s been missing all year long.
I don’t see the Titans going on the road and getting the win this week in a, more than likely, winter wonderland themed Philadelphia. The last time McCoy got to play in a bunch of snow he ran for 217 yards and 2 TDs.
