Mariota Shines in Titans Victory Over Tampa Bay

The Tennessee Titans last victory came almost a year ago (Oct. 3, 2014), and yesterday marked victory number one for the start of the new season. Marcus Mariota shined in the opening minutes of the first quarter, throwing a pass to WR Kendall Wright for a 52 yard score. On the next play, number one overall pick and 2013 Heisman winner) Jameis Winston threw his first NFL pass, but didn’t have much success as Mariota did, for he threw a pass that was picked off and eventually returned for a TD by Titans’ CB Coty Sensabaugh. Mariota would go on to throw 3 other TD passes to Harry Douglas, Delanie Walker, and Bishop Sankey. Mariota finishes the day 13/16 pass completions for 209 yards, 4 TD’s, 0 INT’s, and two rushes for 6 yards, and a 158.3 QB passer rating. Mariota becomes the first rookie QB to throw for 4 TD’s in one quarter. Winston finished the game with 16/33 pass completions for 210 yards, 2 TD’s, 2 INT’s, and a QB rating of 64.0, and 18 yrds rushing on 6 attempts. Winston also made history, joining legendary QB Brett Farve as the other QB to throw an INT on his rookie debut. The no.2 pick outmatched the no.1 overall pick, but it also makes Mariota’s second win over Jameis Winston…as Oregon plowed Florida State in the college football playoffs earlier this year. The Titans are 1-0 but can only wonder how the season will progress? Mariota’s next challenge is to get by the Cleveland Browns (in Cleveland) with Johnny Manziel at the helm. It will be the 2012 Heisman winner vs the 2014 Heisman winner. Will Mariota’s success continue, and will Mariota lead the Titans to a 2-0 start for the first time in 7 years?

Breaking: Titans WR Involved in Bar Fight; Bail Set at $25,000

Titans WR and fmr Tennessee Vols star WR Justin Hunter has been arrested for a connection to a bar brawl in Virginia Beach on July 3. Hunter spent time arraigned in a courtroom today and had a bond set for $25,000, but will have to go to General Districti Criminal Court on September 3. According to a 24/7 Sports article, the victim argued with Hunter in the bar and hunter sucker punched him twice and began to cough up blood when he went outside the bar. The victim stayed two days in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries: a broken jaw, a broken tooth, and a missing tooth. Hunter was released on his $25,000 bail, but must comply to few certain conditions; these are just a few: Remain on good behavior, may leave Virginia due to his employment status, may not consume drugs or alcohol, and may have no contact with the victim. For a list of all of the charges, click on the link up at the top of the paragraph. As a reminder, if Hunter doesn’t do so well in the Titans training camp, Hunter’s career in Nashville could be possibly over. He caught 28 catches his rookie season and 18 last season before a lacerated spleen would sideline him for the season. Hunter was selected in the 2nd round of the 2013 NFL draft.

Breaking: Mariota Finally Signed?

I look forward to the future with my teammates, and I’m truly excited to be part of this team.” Now Titans fans can look forward to seeing what Mariota can do during training camp.

Breaking: Former Titans LB Retires

Former Tennessee Titans MLB Colin McCarthy has shockingly announced his retirement today via Twitter. McCarthy was a 4th round pick out of Miami selected in the 2011 NFL draft by the Titans. As a rookie, he had 68 combined tackles with 2 FF’s and 2 FR’s. He became team captain in 2012, but due to an ankle injury and a concussion, played only 7 games, but had 38 total tackles and a 49 yard INT return for a TD. In 2013, McCarthy lost his starting position to LB Moise Fokou, but did play in all 16 games with only 5 starts; he had 55 total tackles with 1 INT returned for just one yard and had a FF as well. In 2014, McCarthy suffered a shoulder injury in training camp that required surgery, and put him on the IR for the season. After his contract with the Titans had expired, McCarthy tested free agency, but did not end up signing with anybody, but did make a visit with the New England Patriots. McCarthy retires at the age of 27.

Breaking: Tennessee Titans Sign Former Texans TE

The Titans are looking to add more depth to their roster at the TE position; the club agreed to terms with former Houston Texans TE Philip Supernaw, but also made room for him by waiving DT Lucas Vincent. Supernaw has played with three NFL teams: besides the Houston, Supernaw has played with Baltimore and Kansas City (splitting his season with both teams last season). He has played in 8 games with only 3 receptions for 30 yards (average of 10 yards a catch).Supernaw played in the NFL as an UFA out of Ouachita Baptist University, and split time on and off Houston’s practice squad and main roster.  If his last name sounds familiar, he is the son of country singer Doug Supernaw. In college, Supernaw recorded 64 catches for 710 yards with 10 TD’s.
