The Titans had the best record, 13-3, during the 2008 regular season, but things didn't go as planned when the Baltimore Ravens left Nashville with the win in the divisional round of the playoffs. Kerry Collins signed a new deal and remains the starting quarterback while Patrick Ramsey was signed to compete with Vince Young for the backup role. Key off season moves include the loss of Albert Haynesworth, special teams ace Chris Carr and defensive back Eric King. One of the top questions heading into the season is whether or not Jason Jones, Tony Brown, Kevin Vickerson and free agent Jovan Haye will make up for the loss of all pro Haynesworth on the defensive line.
Will Vince Young hang on to the #2 quarterback position? The Titans signed free agent Patrick Ramsey to compete with Young for the backup position. Young's play this year could determine whether or not he's a Titan for years to come.
Will the lack of experienced depth hurt the defensive backfield for the Titans? Two key backups moved on in free agency so the Titans will have to count on second year Cary Williams, free agent signee Demarcus Faggins and a couple of rookies in the event injuries cause a problem in 2009.
For the first time in over ten years the Titans used a first round pick on a receiver in Britt so they definitely see potential in the young man from Rutgers. Free agent Nate Washington will start opposite Justin Gage at wide receiver with Britt having a good chance of being the third receiver in three wide receiver set if he picks up the offense in quick order.
Titans Head Coach Jeff Fisher promoted defensive assistant Chuck Cecil to defensive coordinator when Jim Schwartz left to become head coach in Detroit. The question in Nashville is will Cecil stick to Schwartz scheme or change up things and blitz more in 2009.
