Tennessee Titans fans and NFL fans rejoice, September is here. The 101st NFL season is just days away from kicking off. Although Titans fans will have to wait the longest, along with Denver Broncos fans to see their season get started, as the two teams play in the Monday Night Football doubleheader nightcap on opening weekend. All that being said, it’s time for the next monthly installment of the Tennessee Titans True or False Series.
Author’s note: While some of the questions from previous installments will be reassessed, new ones will be addressed.
There’s a player that was a surprising cut on cut down day, the Titans should look at?
True. With the pass rush being an area where you could never have too many pieces. The Seahawks released linebacker Shaquem Griffin in a surprising cut day move. He would be one guy coach Mike Vrabel and the Titans could take a look at.
The Titans are still in the Jadeveon Clowney Sweepstakes?
True. A few days ago this one would have been false. But Thursday and Friday’s reports were the Titans and the New Orleans Saints were both making last-ditch efforts to sign the edge rusher, prior to the start of the season. So the waiting game continues. Either Clowney will take his talents to the Big Easy or bring them to Music City.
The Gostkowski signing is huge?
True. The debacle that was the kicking game without a doubt, cost this team a game or two last season. The team fielded four different kickers, with much of the same result. They were a combined eight out of eighteen on field goal attempts. Meanwhile, Stephen Gostkowski is a three-time Super Bowl Champion and a four-time Pro Bowl selection. The team will definitely feel differently when he runs on the field to attempt a game-winner.
Big Jeff will quickly garner national attention?
True. All indications are defensive end Jeffery Simmons will be a major force against opposing offensive lines. Debuting halfway through last season after recovering from a knee injury, the 19th overall selection by the Titans despite the injury, made his presence known immediately. With half a season under his belt and with veteran Jurrell Casey no longer alongside him, Simmons knows he’s going to have to ball out, and he will.
The team will go 3-0 in September?
False. While it could possibly happen the Titans will begin October 2-1. With two out of the first three games on the road in Denver and Minnesota, along with a week two home game against the Jaguars. The Vikings game is the questionable one. With a similar offense complete with a solid running game and a solid quarterback, it may be tricky to steal a win for the Titans. But they will rebound with a Week Four home victory against the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers, on the first Sunday in October.
