Titans Blown Out By Giants in 36-7 Trouncing

The Titans awful season continued with another awful loss Sunday at home, this time to the New York Giants, who broke a 7-game losing streak with a 36-7 beating in Nashville.

Tennessee is now 2-11 on the season.

The loss was cemented by losing rookie QB Zach Mettenberger, who will probably miss the rest of the season after his worst day as a pro.

He was just 14-of-24 passing for 125 yards, was intercepted once and fumbled twice, and in three quarters didn’t get the Titans to a score. He left with a shoulder injury.

“He really didn’t have much of an opportunity to have any kind of day today,” wide receiver Nate Washington said.

“His day was avoiding pressure. I don’t want to point a finger anywhere. But it’s tough to judge and gauge his day when the majority of it was based around avoiding other defenders.”

The Titans lost its seventh straight and for the 11th time in 12 games with a performance that had fans booing and even a handful wearing paper bags over their heads.

This is the franchise’s longest slide since losing 11 straight in 1994 as the then-Houston Oilers.

“Obviously, it was a tough day today,” Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “It’s not fun, but we’re working. The only thing is our guys, they’re trying, they’re working hard, and we’ll keep working and come out of it.”

Giants QB Eli Manning had a big day against the Titans D, as he threw for 260 yards and a touchdown.

Two rookies put up big numbers for the Giants – Odell Beckham Jr. set a team rookie record with his fourth game with 100 yards receiving this season: 11 catches for 130 yards and a TD. Andre Williams ran for a season-high 131 yards, including a 50-yard TD.

For the Titans, the patchwork effect on offense showed. The Titans had only four players that started the season at their positions with left tackle Taylor Lewan and right tackle Michael Oher missing their second straight starts because of injuries.

When right tackle Byron Stingily went down, Tennessee finished with a tackle signed Tuesday.

The Titans’ only points came when Marqueston Huff returned an interception 23 yards for a TD. The Titans couldn’t even run out the final seconds of the first half properly, drawing a penalty for an illegal snap that prompted boos from fans still paying attention.

Titans President Says Roster Will Be ‘A Lot Different’ in 2015

Titans president and CEO Tommy Smith is upset and embarrassed that his team is 2-10, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

Smith is confident coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Ruston Webster are the right men to haul the franchise out of a terrible rut. What needs to change, according to Smith, is a roster that lacks quality depth — something that was exposed as injuries mounted in recent weeks.

“The roster is going to look a lot different next year,” Smith said Wednesday. “Players need to be playing to the best of their abilities right now, and that will determine their future. There may be some players whose contracts might be up, but that doesn’t mean they’re not going to be here. There may be some players with multiyear contracts, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to be here.

“I can assure you this: I am committed to making this thing right. And we are going to build a team that this town and the fans can be proud of. I am going to build an organization and a team that is going to be known for winning, not losing. People will say, ‘How can you say that with a 2-10 team?’ I know there is a lot of work to do. It’s taking longer than I hoped. But this thing is going to get fixed.”

“I am terribly disappointed for the fans. I know they’re not happy, and I am right there with them. I am disappointed, I am angry. I want to win, and I want to win now,” Smith said. “I want the fans to know I appreciate their support, and I know in these economic times money comes dearly and they have other options. But I am committed to getting this right for them, and sooner rather than later. …

“We understand the problems, we regret it. The reality is this is where we are right now. But trust me, we all want to carry the trophy and we are going to get there.”
