Trevor Daniel has been promoted to the active roster and Ryan Allen has signed onto the practice squad. It can only improve for Trevor, but I am extremely surprised that this was the decision the coaching staff made.
There are a lot of players that are injured right now for the Titans. Friday’s injury report will tell the story on most of them, but they need 75% of the guys that didn’t practice on Thursday to be game-ready for the Ravens.
NFL.com picked the Ravens to win on Sunday, which is the first step to the Titans pulling the upset. The Titans always seem to play better when they are doubted, and due to the 1-3 stretch they are currently on, there are plenty of doubters.
Gil Brandt says that the Titans are worse than their record indicates. I agree with him wholeheartedly. Unless they can turn it around in the next three games, this will be a classic case of a team beating up on the bad teams and then turning into a pumpkin against the good to great teams in the conference. He also brings up Stephen Gostkowski’s shakiness as a reason to doubt this team going forward. I do not understand the coaching staff’s loyalty to a kicker who has proven to be so inconsistent on a weekly basis.
Titans Online previews the Ravens and what the Titans might be able to exploit on Sunday. I think this is a big “get right” game for Derrick Henry and this offense given the injuries to the Ravens defense.
