Tennessee Titans - winning season or losing season?

Postby biju » Tue Sep 27, 2005 2:57 pm

[if you read to the end you'll see why this is extremely interesting] ;-D

How do you think the Tennessee Titans will fair the rest of the season? Do you think they'll be playing from behind most of the time, or playing with the lead?

Remaining Schedule:

4 Colts
5 at Texans
6 Bengals
7 at Cardinals
8 Raiders
9 at Browns
10 BYE
11 Jaguars
12 49ers
13 at Colts
14 Texans
15 Seahawks
16 at Dolphins
17 at Jaguars

The reason I ask is simple: It appears that they tend to run the ball more when winning and pass more when losing (I know, not groundbreaking). But, when they are in their passing mode, they tend to throw often to their TE Erron Kinney. In their week 2 win Kinney had nothing (2 catches, 13 yards), but in both losses he has averaged 6 catches and 61 yards. Maybe I'm not digging from enough data (the season is still early), but I'm always looking for that extra advantage and the data seems to show that he'll produce in games the Titans are losing.

And knowing when a TE will produce can be huge and ultimately the deciding factor in matchups.

Having said that, I see at least 7 games in which they should be playing from behind.

Thoughts?

His numbers match the same way, although he's more redzone:

week 1: 4 rec, 28 yards, 1 TD
week 2: 1 rec, 5 yards
week 3: 2 rec, 22 yards, 1 TD

Troupe's your man, Kinney is a solid TE, but, Troupe is scary
fast and athletic- remember a couple of times he hurdled a CB.
Troupe's capable of breaking a long gain. Chow loves to use
TEs.(so far)
For whatever it is worth, I see the Titans with 7 to 9 wins.

No, I fully agree and I (unfortunately) wasn't trying to turn this into a WW style question but I'm playing in a 14 team league and various trades have left me with an undesirable starting TE (at least for the time being Heath Miller isn't in much of the Pittsburgh offensive scheme) and I'm looking for a replacement. Of course, Ben Troupe is already taken.

But that aside, it's good for anybody with Bed Troupe as well that there seems to be a predictable outcome depending on the opponent.
