PK TV: We Discussed Colts 31, Titans 28 (OT)

The Paul Kuharsky PodcastNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Twenty-eight points certainly should have been enough in that one. One hundred and two yards for Derrick Henry before a probable concussion should have been enough.

But these were the find-a-way Titans, and not in a good way.

Special teams fiascos took them down and handed the game to the Colts, 31-28 in overtime, and Ryan Stonehouse, Henry, Jeffery Simmons and Josh Whyle didn't finish the game with injuries.

The hits keep on rolling. You know you're seeing this thing through. My whole column was about the special teams and Craig Aukerman, so this was my chance to go as much beyond that as you liked. Will Levis was bad -- 16 for 33 for 224 with a TD and no pick and missing DeAndre Hopkins out of bounds a couple of times on plays that had no chance. Sean Murphy-Bunting was super accountable but got beat too much, including on what amounted to the game-winning throw.

The officiating had some bad moments.

You had a lot to say about it all. So thanks for coming to the private Facebook page or to YouTube below for the hearty chat about it all. Enjoy a nice rewatch if you didn't make it.

PK TV: The Titans Ahead Of The Rematch With The Colts

PK TVNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Some people got excited about the Titans' win against the Panthers and dared to peek at what an extended winning streak would mean for playoff chances.

Others remain adamant that they want the team to lose every game in the name of the best possible draft position.

I don't think the Titans are winning out, but I suspect they are going to find a couple of wins along the way to the end of the season. And you can't convince me winning isn't important for Will Levis and other young Titans who have already started building what those draft picks will join in on.

It's something we discussed along with expectations for Derrick Henry in a rematch with the Colts and Mike Vrabel's future after conflicting reports.

Thanks to those who joined me at halftime of Thursday Night Football to discuss all things Titans as we get ready for Indianapolis' visit.

Podcast: 'Cool' Plays, Mike Vrabel's Future, Will Levis' Leadership

Podcast: 'Cool' Plays, Mike Vrabel's Future, Will Levis' Leadership

The Paul Kuharsky PodcastNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Mike Vrabel has often used the word "cool" in discussing the Titans offense. He's typically talking about cool plays.

Cool plays he saw throughout a game amid a lot of mediocre stuff or cool things that were on the verge of happening that didn't because of self-inflicted wounds, something else he speaks about quite a bit.

That's where we start this week's edition of The Paul Kuharsky Podcast.The new episode awaits you on Apple, Spotify, Google Podcasts, TuneIn, iHeart and YouTube, which is also embedded below.

Podcast: Titans' 2023 Goals' Status Report

The Paul Kuharsky PodcastNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Back in the spring and summer the Titans talked about several areas where they hoped to improve in the 2023 season.

Looking back specifically at them now, it's remarkable how the team has failed to make progress, or even regressed, in these areas of focus -- scoring, protection, speed, takeaways and limiting explosive plays among them.

That's where we start this week's edition of The Paul Kuharsky Podcast.

Podcast: The Titans' Two Biggest Games Left

Podcast: The Titans' Two Biggest Games Left

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans have eight games left. They'll play to win all eight. We have no idea if they can recover from the issues that ail them to get that done, though DraftKings has it at +130 that they get over 6.5 wins.

I think two games rank as more important than the rest: The two against the Texans.

The Paul Kuharsky PodcastAmy Adams Strunk may have a solid understanding of the roster issues and be willing to give Mike Vrabel a chance to rebuild the roster with Ran Carthon with another draft and a lot of salary cap money. But the Adams family, Of the Houston area, didn't like the way things ended there and doesn't like the team that replaced the Oilers and got the stadium they couldn't.

That the Texans are an NFL sweetheart at 5-4 with a rookie quarterback a year after a 3-13-1 season must sting, and good showings against them might soften the Titans' poor season.

That's where we commence this week's episode of The Paul Kuharsky Podcast.

Podcast: Will Levis' Safety As the Titans' Starter

Podcast: Will Levis' Safety As the Titans' Starter

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Will Levis can endure pressure, make plays under pressure and avoid pressure.

That's great news for the Titans' bad offensive line, which needs all the help it can get.

The Paul Kuharsky PodcastIt in no way forgives the team's awful job at player assessment and acquisition on the line. But I think he's got a much better chance of surviving back there than Ryan Tannehill did.

That's where we commence this week's episode of The Paul Kuharsky Podcast.

Podcast: Sorting Through The Titans' QB Situation

Podcast: Sorting Through The Titans' QB Situation

The Paul Kuharsky PodcastNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Mike Vrabel has created quarterback confusion this week, which is his goal.

It;'s worked on the fan base. The question is, has it worked on the Falcons? Vrabel wants Atlanta to spend time preparing for Ryan Tannehill, Will Levis and Malik Willis.

So the coach has left open the possibility of Tannehill playing two weeks after he suffered a high right ankle sprain. If he can't go, Vrabel is talking about going so far as to rotate the two young quarterbacks.

It's a wildly unpopular idea.

One would imagine if the Titans really did that, they'd have stuff built in to feature Levis, more of a pocket passer, and Willis, more of a runner. But Levis said they can both do the same things and it's the same plan for both.

I think we need to reserve judgment. It's fine to hash through all the talk and how things are handled now. But let's see what the Titans actually do before we indict Vrabel's plan.

We start the new episode of The Paul Kuharsky Podcast considering Levis.

It awaits you on Apple, Spotify, Google Podcasts, TuneIn, iHeart and YouTube, which is below.

We also delve into:

  • Compensatory draft picks
  • The limits on dropback passing
  • The best-case scenario for the rest of the season
  • Mike Vrabel's weekend in New England
  • Kevin Byard's forecast in Philadelphia

Titans' Talk With Mike Herndon on The Paul Kuharsky Podcast

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The sample size is still relatively small. But the Titans, who've traditionally been a very good red-zone offense, are not good inside their opponent's 20-yard-line this season.

The Paul Kuharsky PodcastThey've scored touchdowns on just six of 17 trips into the red zone this year, and the 35.3 percent rate is tied for 29th in the NFL.

One was with the game clock melting away with a win in hand against the Chargers. Mike Herndon looked at all the other failures in his column this week. 

Mike joined me for this week's edition of The Paul Kuharsky Podcast, and that's where we start.

We also delve into:

  • The Titans' identity crisis
  • How defensive head coaches do on offense.
  • The lack of development of Treylon Burks and Chig Okonkwo
  • Derrick Henry and Tyjae Spears as receiver

The new episode with all that and more awaits you on Apple, Spotify, Google Podcasts, TuneIn, iHeart and YouTube, which is below.
