Q&A With Total Titans

This week we did a Q&A with Total Titans in preparation for the upcoming game against the Rams, my answers to his questions are here at Total Titans.

My questions to Drexel at Total Titans are below in bold.

1. Can Chris Johnson take it easy on us?

He has a Twitter page, so maybe you can ask him to slow it down a bit against the Rams this week.
CJ is in full pursuit of the 2,000 yard rushing mark, so I doubt if he’s going to ease up anytime soon. He’s battling an ankle injury that forced him to miss practice Wednesday, but he’s expected to be ready to go on Sunday.
Per the norm, I’ll go out on the limb (sarcasm) and predict another 100-yard performance by CJ. The Rams’ task should be to limit his gains to shorter ones rather than allowing him to break loose for long scampers.
Good luck with that.

The next four questions and answers are after the jump.

2. We’ve heard a lot since Vince Young returned about his “maturity” and “calm”.  What’s your take on his improved play?  Or is his improved play a effect of the rest of the team’s improved play?

In my opinion, Vince’s stellar play can be attributed to being a better student of the game off the field and making better decisions on it.
He’s always had the physical ability but now he’s winning the mental battle by making good reads and executing the playbook very well. He’s also a much more confident passer, as he’s looked a lot more relaxed in the pocket.
IMO, outside of the aforementioned Chris Johnson, Vince Young is the biggest reason for the team winning five out of their last six games after starting the year a dreadful 0-6.

3. What are the chances the Titans make the playoffs this season after a terrible start?

With all seven of the team’s losses coming against conference opponents, even if the Titans can reach the 9-7 mark, it’s going to be hard to overcome their poor record against AFC competition in regards to wild-card tiebreakers.
It’s not impossible, but improbable is perhaps the best word to use regarding the Titans’ chances of making a return trip to the postseason.
However, considering the poor start, it’s a miracle that we’re even having this conversation about the possibility of the Titans making the playoffs.

4.  What happened to the team between the terrible loss in the snow in New England and the bye week that had this team playing their best football?

Three reasons for the Titans’ improved performance since the bye week:
1. Vince Young has come in at QB and provided a spark with his solid play.
2. After dealing with a slew of injuries prior to the bye week, the Titans are now healthy again at the cornerback position.
3. Despite still giving up chunks of yardage from time to time, the Titan defense as a whole has played much better since the New England debacle.

5. What is your score prediction for the Rams-Titans game?

The Rams, despite continuing their losing ways, have been competitive as of late, so they’ll keep it close for a little while. However, the Titans will pull away in the second half for the victory.
