Taking a closer look at Mike Clay’s Tennessee Titans breakdown
By Will Lomas
What did Mike Clay say about the Titans?
The Tennessee Titans are never going to get the national respect that they deserve when there is big market bias, but at least numbers don’t lie right?
Setting aside the honesty of stats for a second, I wanted to take a look at the differences between where Mike Clay ranked the Titans players and position groups at the end of July vs where he ranked them after final cuts took place this weekend.
Whether you like Clay or not, you have to respect the detail that he puts into every aspect of his job. Unlike someone like Adam Rank, Clay doesn’t just make vague generalities and then quickly change the subject.
He ranks players and position groups across the league and if you want to know how much better Cody Hollister is than Taywan Taylor, he has a metric for that. I’m not sure why you would ask that, but if you did he could tell you.
If you are a player with stats that end up on a page, he has a projection for you which basically means everyone except offensive line which he just grades as a lump sum.
So, what are my biggest takeaways from those projections?
