View Full Version : Chiefs Common denominator during the Titans' six-game losing streak

So the Titans looked like contenders and then they went on this six-game streak that killed their season.

I still think they are a talented and dangerous team. This, IMO, is our toughest game other than the San Diego game in the second half of the season.

Matchups I hate:

Jason Babin against Barry Richardson - nuff said

Cortland Finnegan against Dwayne Bowe - I really hate this, because Finnegan is physical enough to completely take Bowe out of his game.

Chris Hope and Michael Griffin against Matt Cassel - He can't telegraph throws like that INT last week and get away with it against these guys.

Michael Roos against Tamba Hali - Roos completely owned Hali the last time he played him. Yeah, Hali is a different player now, but Roos is a great young left tackle.

Oh yeah, Chris Johnson against...anyone.

Now, why did the Titans lose six games? Every quarterback they played during their losing streak was highly efficient at the least or explosive at best.

Rivers 27/36 305 2/1
Henne 19/28 240 1/0
McNabb 30/50 376 1/1
Schaub 25/35 176 1/0
Garrard 14/19 126 0/0
Manning 25/35 319 2/0

I do not think we can get away with another 15/30 performance out of Cassel and expect to win this game.

BTW, they just held the Texans to 30 rushing yards.

I hate playing Collins. He's a statue in the pocket but he's 3x more dangerous in the passing game.

If he wasn't 65 he'd the no 1 worry this week.

They have the offense to go up and stay up on us early if we sleep walk through the first half like we did last week.

Please, please, ****ING PLEASE bring pressure and the blitz vs. Old Man Kerry this week...

Well, those guys are all good players. The Titans have 38 sacks, 16 INT and have allowed only 18 TD passes. Those are all high marks. For the 30th ranked passing offense, it should be a concern.

4.5 ypc over the entire season. He averaged 5.6 last year. He won't average anywhere near 5.4 ypc against us. He 358 carries last season. He is on pace for 320+ this year. The body can't handle that.

I think we stack the run and play a lot of man in both of these games. I also think we completely destroy both the Titans and the Raiders. I mean, just completely annihilate both of them.

If this happens we'd draw the Jets and, despite Sanchez being a good player on the road, I think we match up well against them.

If we are lucky enough to get that far I see us having a chance in Pittsburgh if we can get the run going. Hopefully, the Ravens would take down the Pats and we'd host them for the Championship game.

Truthfully, this team has made such progress and shown real growth in so many areas this season is a win as it stands. But I do believe we smoke these next two opponents in Arrowhead. I do believe out of all the teams we could host the Jets (and maybe the Ravens who have given up huge yards/points at times this season) are probably the easiest out of a bunch of tough games to play.

Beyond that, who knows.

I was looking for a common denominator.

It wasn't rushing yards, and it wasn't defense.

None of these quarterbacks had bad days. All of them were, at the very least, highly efficient. I would guess the third down conversion % for these teams was very high.

This is true (both positive and negative). Out of all those lines I think we have the best chance to win with Garrard's numbers because it likely means we have 900 yards rushing offense (the Jags had 258 yards of rushing offense in that game).

I don't think it is.

When Collins has time he goes downfield. He has the arm and nothing to lose.

If anything that's our biggest weakness - deep down the middle passing.

That's where we get gashed.

I think this is the secret to teh Hoody/Parcells/Crennel defense: "**** the HB - Ruin the QB's day."

You saw this vs. Denver, and it was the failed game plan vs SD.

If you think about it it's a brilliant game plan and works most of the time. If you force an offense to run 12-17 plays with 0 gains of 20+ plays odds are they will **** up.

Really, how many teams can sustain 15+ play drives?

They will **** up. Holding calls, perhaps a tipped pass, a jerky QB, botched WR reverse, etc.

Eventually they'll **** themselves.

IF they don't have a top 5 QB...

A couple of things from a Chiefs fan living in Titan-ville;

- Fisher is on his way out. I cannot see Bud Adams keeping him after back to back seasons with lossing streaks of 6 games.

- Tennesee's game plan, both defense and offence, is a hybrid of Marty & Herm Edwards. Once you shut down the run and get up by ten the game is over

- We can run all day on them. The D-Line stinks.

- Finnegan can be beat. Bowe just needs to keep his head on straight.

Few interesting tidbits from the Titans board:

We've got a small defense built to (attempt) to stop Peyton Manning, and if you push us around enough on defense we eventually cave in. Anyone with a strong run game and a solid TE can just run us into the ground and force our offense to be even more 1-dimensional than it already is.The Titans need to beat Kansas City and Indianapolis to get to 8-8. Meanwhile, Washington has to beat Jacksonville and Oakland needs to beat Indianapolis next week. Then, in Week 17, Houston has to beat Jacksonville in the finale. If all of that happens, the Titans win the tiebreaker and at 8-8, the Titans win the AFC South and get into the playoffs. It's a lot of help, but crazier things have happened.
Two words to make every Titans fan cringe: Tony Moeaki.KC is all hype, no substance. They lose consistently to the worst teams in the league.

Pretenders to a T.Chris Johnson has clearly lost a step. I've been saying it since the beginning of the season. A lot of Titans fans were/still are in denial about it though. But he hasn't looked the same all season long. Not even early on.

Yeah Allen had a good angle on him this past Sunday but there's no doubt in my mind '09 CJ would've taken that to the house. How many times in '08 and '09 did we see DBs have GREAT angles on him yet he still left them in a cloud of dust? I honestly haven't seen any of that this year.

I'm not sure if the dropoff is due to injury, poor offseason training, lack of passion or what. But if you think this is the same guy from last year you're kidding yourself. Don't get me wrong, he still a great back. And compared to the other backs around the league he's one of if not the fastest. But compared to CJ of seasons past, he's slow.In my opinion he's definitely lost a step. Sure it's very possible that he's slowed a bit thanks to the beating he's taken the last two seasons and the excessive number of touches he's had this year, but he just looks slower on almost every touch he's had this year even at the beginning of the year he looked slower (perhaps due to and elevated sense of indecisiveness), he just doesn't look like the same explosive runner like he did year 1 and even last year. I didn't watch the game, and after seeing the play on NFL films have to admit that was a great angle by Allen though !The O-line is significantly worse this season. There's no denying that. But this discussion isn't simply about a decline in CJ's numbers. All you have to do is watch him when he gets into the open field to see he's lacking that extra gear he previously had. Nobody is calling him slow or saying he sucks. He just doesn't look the same this year. Sure the line sucks. But CJ is getting brought down in the open field in several situations where he would not have been touched in years past. That doesn't have anything to do with the line. 10, 15, 20 yards past the LOS and you get caught that's on you.

What you'll need to worry about with Tennessee is their defense, not their offense. CJ has slowed down and is too patient waiting for holes to develop. Kerry Collins will give you plenty of opportunities at sacks and Ints. But the Casshole is not a good matchup for this defense at all. They can move laterally and stop all the gimmick misdirection and draw bullshit and they can rush the passer with their front dropping 7 back into zones. Casshole hasn't been very good at all against the type of coverage scheme they play.

Here is an excellent post from WPI

Here is what I can tell you on the Titans based on my research.

Offense
Their starting center Eugene Amano has been put on IR. So they started Fernando Velasco. He seemed to struggle in pass protection. The Texans were bringing a lot of crossing blitzes and effectively getting through the Titans A gaps. This was their main source for getting pressure on Kerry Collins and forcing him to throw before he wanted to.

*Kerry Collins still has an impressive arm compared to half of the starting QBs in the NFL. He is smart with his pump fakes and knows where to put the ball when given time. But if you force him to hurry in his delivery on his decision, he will under or overthrow the ball and potentially allow the defense to get a interception. He seems to be most bothered when the Blitz is coming directly in the middle of the pocket. And he doesn't throw very well on the run.

*Chris Johnson is the first guy the Chiefs need to stop. The Titans want to get the ball to him early and often. The Titans are 1-5 when Chris Johnson is held under 100yds. Chris Johnson wants to bounce it outside or he wants to use the cutback. There is rarely straight ahead running. He tries to outrun everyone with his speed rather than cut up field and truly utilize his speed to just outrun the pursuit angles.

*Kenny Britt is the key to their offense's effectiveness. They average 28 pts a game and are 6-4 with him. They average 9pts and are 0-4 without him in the lineup. The Titans got the ball to him early and often. He is really what helped them win the game with CJ's inability to get big runs because the Texans were stacking 8 in the box. And their secondary proved how terrible it was, when it game up two 4th down conversions on their opening drive.

Defensively
*Cortland Finnegan is a very physical corner that will do everything in his power to get in Dwayne Bowe's head. He will try to bait Bowe into a personal foul. This is a game where Bowe must keep his cool and make Finnegan shut up by being physical with him in his run blocking and run him over any chance he gets after catching a pass. Bowe's toughness will be challenged this week.

*Overall I'm not blown away by the Defense of the Titans. They haven't jumped out to me on the film like some of our prior opponents have. They don't have a great deal of glaring weaknesses nor do they have any strength that makes me say wow that will be tough to beat. They are a bunch of tough players that want to stop the run and force you to pass. And bring their rotation of fresh defensive lineman to pin their ears back and get after the quarterback.

*Fear the Tight End?

Special Teams

*Marc Mariani is a dangerous kick and punt returner. He really has a knack for finding his way through defenders. The Chiefs coverage unit will need to stay in their lanes to keep him corralled. He did a really good job of helping the Titans offense have their own 40 to mid-field.

*I felt the coverage unit on kickoff and punt return just were not a strength like I was expecting. If you have a returner with good field vision and speed, they can make them pay in a hurry.

What the Chiefs Should Do

On Offense
*The Titans don't have ridiculously speed or extremely physical defensive linemen. I believe the Chiefs can run them over.

*Tony Moeaki and Chris Chambers or Verran Tucker need to come up big in this game. Moeaki can continue a trend in play-action of tight ends having a field day.

*Dexter McCluster on reverses could be a whole lot of fun this week.

On Defense
*Don't allow CJ to bounce runs outside. And make sure the backside linebacker does not allow him to have his cutback lane.

*Attack the middle of the pocket when the Titans pass. It will cause the Titans fits in their timing.

*Limit Kenny Britt's catches. He will tear you up all day and move the chains if you allow him. Get Physical with him at the line.

What you'll need to worry about with Tennessee is their defense, not their offense. CJ has slowed down and is too patient waiting for holes to develop. Kerry Collins will give you plenty of opportunities at sacks and Ints. But the Casshole is not a good matchup for this defense at all. They can move laterally and stop all the gimmick misdirection and draw bullshit and they can rush the passer with their front dropping 7 back into zones. Casshole hasn't been very good at all against the type of coverage scheme they play.

uh huh.

So you're saying there's some degree of correlation between teams that have average or above average QB play and teams that win games?

Where do I sign up for premium?

Do think that might have had something to do with the titans going up by 21 in the 1st quarter and M.Schaub having to throw 54 passes?

That and the fact the Houston defense sucks ass

I am too. We went to sleep on D and let the best part of their game take over. That and a totally bunk ass PI call against Flowers. Still should have won the game though.

I'd say Cassel is highly efficient today. :)

Yes, its obvious the Cassel cant handle the fearsome Titans secondary.
