Getting into the Red Zone is biggest concern for Tennessee Titans

This season has got to be top five in Tennessee Titans history of disappointing seasons. They have not played well at all throughout the year. Point the fingers as you wish, but the biggest concern is no just the defense. The Titans offense desperately needs some help in the red zone.

There have been way too many games this season that have been put on the shoulders of veteran kicker Rob Bironas. The Thursday night game against the Pittsburg Steelers and the Sunday game against the Detroit Lions both were won by a field goal kicked by Bironas because the offense could not get into the end zone.

Touchdowns win games. Extra points and field goals are nice-but they should not be something to bank on during a close situation. If you have the time and field position to go for it-then do it. They really need to find a way to pull it together down field.

With only three games left in the season I hate to say it but it is time to start thinking about next year. Obviously the team is going to try their best in these last three games, it’s their job. And realistically they could have wins against both the New York Jets and the Jacksonville Jaguars. To me though, there is no chance against the Green Bay Packers.

So now comes the concern of where do you start looking for the 2013 NFL Draft? Defensive positions are okay now with the draft if they can all stay healthy, and really, offensively when you hear the names of the players, they have what they need for receivers. But the numbers don’t show up consistently on paper the way they should.

I’ll have to really analyze the final weeks to see which position exactly they should target. My suggestion would be grab someone that can play all down the line. But that’s just me-many of the offensive line they have now have played everyone on the line. That kind of utility is important in sports.
