2011 Preview:
For the first time since Jack Pardee was leading the Houston Oilers in 1994, this franchise will not have Jeff Fisher on the sidelines. Former offensive line coach Mike Munchak takes over, and he’ll have new quarterbacks under center in Matt Hasselbeck and raw rookie Jake Locker (the No. 8 pick of the draft) and a new offensive coordinator in Chris Palmer (who has a shaky track record with his last two rookie QBs: Tim Couch and David Carr). They’ll have a short offseason to get the new passing game installed, so the offense will rely heavily on Chris Johnson again. Munchak has said he’ll make it a point to get Johnson the ball in space more often, something Tennessee didn’t do often in the past. However, Johnson has not attended training camp yet because of an ongoing contract dispute with the Titans. The team has not even made an offer to Johnson because they are so far apart with the parameters of a new contract. NFL scores.

The defensive staff is also undergoing changes, with former Seahawks secondary coach Jerry Gray taking over as defensive coordinator. Perhaps the biggest loss on the coaching staff was defensive line coach Jim Washburn, now with the Eagles, who generated an outstanding pass rush despite middling personnel on the defensive line. Tennessee also lost its leading tackler, LB Stephen Tulloch (160 tackles), and top sack man, DE Jason Babin (12.5 sacks) to free agency. The Titans did pick up some solid free agents in DT Shaun Smith and LB Barrett Ruud who they hope will plug the middle of the field. CB Frank Walker and safeties Jordan Babineaux and Anthony Smith will provide depth to a pretty solid secondary. Odds.

StatFox Take: This schedule is much harder in the first half of the season, which doesn’t bode well for a team with so many coaching and key personnel changes. Tennessee will likely only be favored once (vs. Denver) in its first eight games. There are too many question marks on both sides of the ball to expect this team to finish .500 or better for the fifth time in six seasons. Scores.
Prediction: UNDER 7 wins (-160)
