Titans to run the ball more

Postby bagobonez » Wed Jul 05, 2006 9:47 am

The Nashville Tennessean reports on the subject of running the football, Titans HC Jeff Fisher is a serious man. And he's making no secrets about his team's desire to run it a lot more in 2006. "Obviously, we're going to get back to old-school football and run it,'' Fisher said. "That's our intention, that's our desire, and that's where the work has been emphasized this offseason. "As far as who does it? Well, we have some great options right now. We will not have a shortage of running backs by no means.'' A year ago, no Titan running back eclipsed the 100-yard mark in a game for the first time since the 1986 season. The team finished 23rd in the NFL in rushing yards per game, while the NFL's best teams ran it often, and ran it well. This offseason, RB Chris Brown has added 10 pounds to be better equipped to handle more of a load. RB Travis Henry is healthy after ankle surgery, and thinks he can return to his Pro Bowl days in Buffalo. Rookie RB LenDale White, meanwhile, is ready to make a splash of his own after piling up yards at USC. He's expected to be a factor in short-yardage situations this fall, with hopes of doing much more. In addition to those players, RB Jarrett Payton and RB Damien Nash return, and seventh-round draft pick RB Quinton Ganther will also be in the mix when training camp begins. When the Titans start training camp later this month, how the Titans plan on using the backs will begin to come into better focus. In addition to more carries, Fisher said he wants a solid average per carry, which should allow the team to control the football more.

Great news for LenDale owners. The extra work should beat Brown up in half the time this year! Maybe by the 3rd qtr of the 2nd game. ;-7

Thats all well and good but that gameplan is gonna get tossed out the window once they are losing in the 2nd half. Their pourous defense will force the Titan offense to play catch up a lot.

seriously, Brown is made of glass, draft him 10th round and lower.
Lendale white is being overhyped, Tennese sucks and wont have enough goaline situations to get him more than a few TDs. I agree that Tenesse will throw a lot this year because they will be playing from behind. Drew Bennet is a good value late in drafts. Though he to, loves to go to the doctor's office.

Personally, I'm not touching this backfield until someone goes. There's too much talent here.

Or, maybe too little.
CheeseWhiz is a great substitute for plazma.

why do you ask? Bagels and donuts have nothing to do with one another. One has frosting, one doesn't. The hole in the middle is purely coicidence.

Yeah, you can't run down two touchdowns or more in the second half. They don't really have a choice unless the defense can keep it close.
The facts have no meaning.
