Tennessee Titans deepest position is…defensive back?
By Will Lomas
What do the Titans do at DB?
The Tennessee Titans defense has left a lot to be desired this season, especially the pass defense.
However, despite the product on the field suffering, it is becoming more and more apparent that the problem with the team has less to do with the talent on the field, and more to do with the scheme and the playcalling (more on that in a second).
So what does that mean? Well, it means that this coaching staff isn’t getting the most out of the talent at defensive back and that some of the people that we have been low on all season are probably actually pretty good players.
This was on my mind during the lull in between meals on Thanksgiving and I started to think about the Titans defense. The more I thought about it, the more I thought that defensive back was actually one of the deeper and more talented position groups on the entire roster.
If there is a problem, it is that they have too many talented players that aren’t getting on the field as much as they should. I’ll tell you exactly why that is a problem in a minute, but right now let me circle back to an important topic.
Why am I so optimistic about the Titans defensive backs, and how am I so sure that the biggest problem with the defense is the scheme? Let’s take a quick look.
