By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – November 11, 2018) Um…what? It’s not that the Titans won on Sunday for the second time in six days, this time against the vaunted New England Patriots and arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history, because it can happen. It’s HOW they won. This was domination, and every time you…

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – November 10, 2018) Eventually it had to happen. Eventually, the stars would align in Knoxville and the Tennessee Volunteers would play good football in front of the home crowd.

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – November 5, 2018) Improbable after that first quarter. but somehow the Tennessee Titans picked themselves up off the Dallas turf and decided their season wasn’t over just yet. In one of the franchise’s most complete performances in years, Marcus Mariota and the offense sizzled, the defense (sans one) did its…

Big 6 Blog: Big 6 Takeaways (TEN vs. CHA)

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – November 3, 2018) Embarrassing. How to get six takeaways from one of the most uninspiring performances I’ve ever seen from a Power 5 football team at home? I have no idea, but I’m going to try.   THE OFFENSIVE LINE It’s bottom of the barrel. Charlotte absolutely annihilated the Vols…

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – October 27, 2018) It was a dramatic game, well-played on one side of the ball throughout much of the game, but it was also an infuriating night for Jeremy Pruitt and likely for Vols fans across the nation. Why? Well, because in a game that was this close, self-inflicted mistakes…

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – October 21, 2018) 3-4. Fourth down TD to Stocker. Then a penalty. Then a curious pair of mental deliberations that didn’t work. Without Melvin Gordon in the lineup, the Tennessee Titans made it tough on the Chargers running game. Luckily for Los Angeles, Philip Rivers and his receivers are completely…

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – October 20, 2018) If you talked yourself into Tennessee having a chance to stun Alabama on Saturday, I’m both happy and sad for you. It wasn’t a fun afternoon for Vols fans, but I love that you had hope enough in the current team following the Auburn loss to dream.…
