In many ways, Kenny Britt's struggles typify the Tennessee Titans' season.

Before the year, I called Britt's play the key to the Titans' 2012 campaign, and it has been decidedly uneven.

Today's article of the day comes from John Glennon of the Tennessean, who says the Titans will look at how they are using Britt.

He's averaging less than than 12 yards a catch, a far cry from his deep-threat resume.

Part of that is obviously due to Matt Hassebeck's tenure as quarterback—in which the Titans rarely threw long—and it's clear that injuries have played a role in slowing down the Tennessee's No. 1 wideout.

It's plain to see, however, that the Titans are going to have to find ways to generate improvement if they hope to turn their sinking season around.

Improved play by Britt could do the trick.

Whether it's a question of health, routes or rhythm, Tennessee needs this bye week to generate more opportunities for Britt to be a difference maker.
