Something really cool is happening to give Tennessee Titans fans an inside look at their team.

The Tennessee Titans aren’t going to be featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks this year and likely never will.

For all of the intrigue around the Titans this year (2nd year HC after a successful first season, QB in a contract year, two Heisman winners, fun personalities, etc.) I would put some money down on the idea that they were never even truly considered.

While Nashville is growing into a big sports hub, they just aren’t there nationally to get something like Hard Knocks. What they did get is better.

I very rarely suggest that any of the readers watch or listen to something, but the “Bussin’ with the Boys” podcast is amazing.

If you haven’t heard about it, please go look it up right now and subscribe because the more you support it the better the chances are that it stays around long term.

I’m not going to sit here and pitch you on it like it is an add, but I can tell you that I am going to start using it as source materials for stories because the information on that show is as close to a truly uncensored behind the scenes look at the Titans that you are going to get.

Taylor Lewan and Will Compton are the hosts and through three weeks they have had:

Delanie Walker, who is maybe THE fan favorite

-Rich Froning, maybe the most decorated CrossFit athlete ever who grew up and lives in Cookeville, Tennessee.

-Arthur Smith, the Titans long-time TE coach promoted to OC who no one has really been able to get to speak candidly since being hired.

Just to explain to you why you need to listen to the show now and why I will talk about it a lot, this is one of the more important things I took away from the latest podcast with Arthur Smith.

Smith spent an entire segment explaining why it was important for him to teach plays and call plays through the lens of “looking through the facemask”. What he meant by that is understanding why x’s and o’s aren’t the same every week and why it is important to make small adjustments to help plays.

For example, if Lewan is blocking some practice squad call up one week and then he faces Von Miller the next week, you have to teach and call plays knowing that you won’t get the same dominance from the first to the second week.

Lewan may win 90% or more of those matchups, but he isn’t going to just be able to bully and completely neutralize one of the best players in the sport.

Something that fits with this is how they also talk about coaches getting so obsessed with their own playcalls that they can’t see the reality on the field. If something isn’t working, you have to be able to change it and adjust instead of trying to bang your head against the wall for 60 minutes hoping something changes.

Everything from the inside information to the guest list is making this podcast a must-listen for me and full warning now, there will be spoilers that I write about on a weekly basis if it is new and interesting information so if you want to keep that from happening I suggest you listen as soon as you can.
