Is it time to be frightened? - 08/24/14
I wouldn't blame Titans fans if they saw last night's defensive efforts and said, "Well, the D is going to be awful this year." Matt Ryan tore the secondary apart with 224 yards passing and 2 TD's in the first half. Devin Hester put a move on Jason McCourty that made him fall down on the first Atlanta touchdown, and Julio Jones is probably still breaking tackles from the second score.
Here's a half-hearted attempt to cheer you up. First, the team and the coaching staff all keep saying that the squad is still earning and adjusting to Ray Horton's new defense. Seems a little late in the process for the first teamers to look this bad at it, but hey - They still have two weeks until the season opener. Also, Ken Whisenhunt noted earlier today that they haven't schemed anything specifically for opponents yet. This one, I'll buy. Finally, someone on twitter pointed out that the Colts made 8 playoff appearances with just 9 preseason wins. Sooo .. anyone feel better?
Didn't think so.
