Mike Herndon: Are We Collectively Overrating The Titans' Defense?

Mike Herndon: Are We Collectively Overrating The Titans' Defense?

By MIKE HERNDON, columnist

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Much of the narrative surrounding the Tennessee Titans this offseason has been that a championship-level defense was wasted by a horrific offense last season and that an improvement from bottom-five to the middle of the pack in scoring would be enough to put this team into the playoffs.

There is no doubt that Tennessee’s defense was overworked and under-rewarded in 2022 as the offense consistently failed to put up points, but there also aren’t a ton of metrics to support “championship-level defense” claims either.

It Feels Too Early To Start Writing Off Derrick Henry For The Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Popular in the national vibe about the 2023 Titans is the idea that Derrick Henry is going to fade hard this season.

And even some great running backs his age have nosedived rather than taperd off.

It’s easy to rattle off a list of top backs who fell off sharply at 28, 29 or 30:

The mystery men of the Tennessee Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Training camp is made for sorting things out.

The Titans are in transition, counting on a lot of players who haven’t had full roles to take those on for them, looking to maximize others who may have more to offer and, of course, monitoring injury returnees.

There are a slew of unknowns and I want to run through them. For the purposes of this piece, I’m going strictly with people, not schemes or depth or anything else.

I’ve attempted to stack the Titans' mystery men roughly in order of importance, with the most important highest on the list.

The Paul Kuharsky Podcast: Why The Titans Waited For 2024 Rebuild

The Paul Kuharsky PodcastNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Earlier this week I looked at the Titans' 2024 depth chart based on who they currently have under contract next year.

It's not pretty, and it will be awfully difficult to avoid calling it a rebuild.

Some of you read that and wondered, why wait?

That's where I start this week's road edition of the podcast.

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

Other subjects I dive into:

Titans' new pass rusher Arden Key relies on more than bend

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Among the Titans' biggest additions to their defense, it would be great if Arden Key was the highest impact.

He will take over for Bud Dupree, playing opposite Harold Landry. In the Mike Vrabel era, the team has been at its best when the front four has generated consistent pressure on its own. If Landry, back from an ACL repair, and Key can do that in combination with Jeffery Simmons and Denico Autry in between them, the Titans will be in prime position to impact games defensively.

No doubt about rebuild ahead when considering Titans under contract in 2024

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A lot has been made of the semantics of what the Titans are doing this year. Is it a rebuild? Is it a soft rebuild? Is it a retool?

I don't know that it has to have a label. They've managed to keep Ryan Tannehill without extending him and Derrick Henry, too, is heading into the last year of his contract. Meanwhile, they drafted likely replacements for each in Will Levis and Tyjae Spears.

There is some vacation ahead for me, that will be centered around some travel baseball, a beach and some time with one of my brothers and his family. So I hope the pod and this mailbag will hold you over for a while.
