Titans coverage 2012-- breakdown of our secondary and some stats from last year to compare to as well. Along with how the secondary is affecting our D line. McCourty - targeted 97 times. Completed against - 63 -- 64.9% -- 12.7 yard average. 800 yards total. Played entirely on the left side. Verner - targeted 84 times. Completed against - 53 --63.1% -- 10.5 yard average. 556 yards total. Played entirely on the right side. Senseabaugh - 35/25 -- 71.4% -- 10.8 yard average. 270 yards total. Mouton - 48/36 -- 75% -- 8.8 yard average. 315 yards total. Griffin - 31/21 -- 65.6% -- 17.1 yard average. 360 yards total. 22 missed tackles. Babs - 51/33 -- 64.7% -- 12 yard average. 395 yards total 2011 Finnegan - 82/52 -- 63.4% --8.8 yard average. 456 yards total Verner - 66/37 -- 56.1 -- 9 yard average. 334 yards total McCourty - 117/71 -- 60.7 -- 11.3 yard average. 802 yards total. Griffin - 38/23 -- 60.5 -- 10.5% yard average. 241 yards total. McCourty has given up a lot of yards for sure. Of course he's been playing primarily against the number one WR... And the other thing is we don't move our corners around so we allow the offense to decide their own match ups... Kinda ridiculous. Our Nickel corners are obviously outmatched and need an upgrade. That probably comes by drafting a top corner in the draft and moving Verner to the slot where he can use his instincts better. Our safety play in coverage isn't the best but they allowed bigger plays by not making tackles when they need to. Griffin has zero fire. Now when you add in the basic theme that the quicker the D line gets pressure the faster the QB must throw the ball. While the secondary is supposed to force the QB to hold the ball longer and allow the D line to get to the QB... We didnt do horrible on pressure or sacks. We did have to pick up 12 of our 39 from LBs but we still got em. We had a grand total of 168 QB pressures for. Our entire defense with 89 coming from Morgan and Wimbley. Now comparing that to some much more aggressive defenses. Texans 165 Ravens 141 Steelers 106 To me... This means we missed out on sacks.. We had the opportunities. If we pressured the QB, we were tenths of seconds away from sacks. Two things would help this defense greatly. Better coverage of course, maybe we need to swing for that CB sooner, and more pressure up the middle of the line. We were weak in that area. To me I think this falls on our sloppy secondary and the scheme... Possibly the padded cushion we give the WRs... Maybe our inability to play man. Food for thought.
