Where do the Tennessee Titans stand in the last NFL power rankings before the season?
Power rankings are a tough thing to talk about. For a long stretch of time it felt like a lot of the NFL Power Rankings around the national outlets weren’t even watching the Tennessee Titans.
Instead, writers would just google a statline or watch some highlights and then act like they had seen that weeks game.
Well, I am here to tell you…honestly that is mostly still correct. To be fair to them it is hard to watch 12-16 games per week and come out with insightful things to say about both teams.
So what I will try to do each week is break down some bigger power rankings and talk about what I agree with in their comments and what I don’t.
So this week we will look at the calm before the storm, the last NFL Power Rankings before the first game of the year.
Right now the sites I will be looking at are ESPN, SI, NFL.com, and Bleacher Report. After this next week I will be including FanSided to that group to round it out completely.
Also, another change I will probably make at some point is a slide that shows the composite grade and some ups, downs and common themes from the power rankings I talked about throughout the story.
I am going to do this because I know that a lot of people either don’t have the time to read longer articles or they would rather just get the highlights. That way if you are pressed for time or just want to get an average of all of these rankings you can just click through to the end and find out the quick version.
The final change I might make is, if I notice a site is clearly oblivious to what the Titans are doing by doing any one of these things then I will strongly consider finding a replacement site that is doing a more comprehensive job:
-Talking about something that didn’t actually happen in a game
-Pushes the Titans down the list after a loss.
-Consistently puts bigger market teams with worse record above them without any real reason
-Or says anything like “I just can’t trust this franchise.”
Alright, nothing else here. Enjoy!
