Titans: Jamil Douglas’ pass-block grade from Week 3 will make fans sick

Tennessee Titans fans will be sickened by the pass-blocking grade of right guard Jamil Douglas from Week 3.

Nobody had a worse game than Tennessee Titans right guard Jamil Douglas in Week 3 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the numbers prove it.

You could already tell just by the old eye test that Douglas was atrocious on Thursday night. He was constantly getting beat upfront, and the Titans allowed nine sacks and 12 QB hits overall.

And, just when you thought it couldn’t get worse for Douglas, Pro Football Focus released its pass-blocking grade for him in Week 3, and it was…

12.4!

I didn’t even know a grade that low was possible. The Titans basically worked with four offensive lineman against Jacksonville.

Somehow, PFF attributed just one sack to Douglas, but I’m not sure how accurate that number is.

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw that.

After the game, head coach Mike Vrabel acknowledged the team needs rookie right guard Nate Davis, who has been busy catching up after missing a ton of practice time with an injury and has been a healthy scratch for the first three games.

Even if he has no idea what he’s doing on the football field yet, Davis has to be better than Douglas at this point. The Titans need to get the third-round pick ready to start for Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons.

As for Douglas, who was talked up by Vrabel during the offseason, he should be no more than a reserve player the rest of the way, and even that is being nice. If for some reason Davis can’t go again next week, the Titans need to give Aaron Stinnie a shot at right guard.

Thankfully for left guard Rodger Saffold, there was actually someone worse than he was. The Titans’ expensive offseason signing also got dominated by the Jags’ pass-rush, and his Titans tenure is off to a rocky start to say the least.
