    Also there are plenty of guys in this league who are the face of their franchise but aren't nationally renown. If no one cares about your team in general no one will care who the face of that team is. Nationally speaking no one cares about us.

    Here's a funny stat. Everyone says CJ sucks on short distances on 3rd and 4th down but were 7th in the league, 67%, at converting on 3rd/4th and 2 or less.

    Sorry we're actually tied for 8th

    http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/ol

    "Power Success: Percentage of runs on third or fourth down, two yards or less to go, that achieved a first down or touchdown. Also includes runs on first-and-goal or second-and-goal from the two-yard line or closer. This is the only statistic on this page that includes quarterbacks."

    I think you put in the wrong link. That link shows the Titan OL ranked 31

    But if it was the one you meant then it shows Titans 11th, but it includes QB sneaks and all goalline situations.

    Im particularly dissappointed that the Titans consider 3rd and 1 a passing down. Its pathetic.


    remember when :cj: didnt get 3rd and 1 or the followup 4th and 1 - that might have been the last times MM tried short yardage running with the little guy

    11th, but again they are including all GL and QB sneaks.

    you are just trying too delude yourself if you want too believe the Titans are a power running team on 3rd and 1

    Oh :( I didn't so that means we're either stuffed or we get it apparently? I know we're not a power running team and we need a power RB for that I was just pointing out what I saw and showing that is wasn't really THAT bad. We're average at converting 3rd and shorts. We could improve it for sure with some fat guy like lenwhale.
