Titans Release Kicker Cairo Santos

The Titans Monday released kicker Cairo Santos a day after he missed three field goals and had a fourth blocked.

Santos missed field goals from 50, 36 and 53 yards with a 36-yarder blocked by Darryl Johnson in a 14-7 loss to Buffalo on Sunday. Santos apologized at his locker after the game with the native of Sao Paulo, Brazil, saying he’d never had a day like that anywhere.

Santos had been signed Sept. 4 when they put veteran Ryan Succop on injured reserve, a move designed to let Succop gain strength after having surgery this offseason on his kicking leg. Succop remains three weeks away from being eligible to be activated off injured reserve.

The Titans (2-3) also waived offensive lineman David Quessenberry.

NFL Places Temporary Ban on Pyro After Fire at Nissan Stadium

The NFL has banned any on-field pyrotechnics and “flame effects” at any league or team events, including games, in the wake of an incident at last Sunday’s game at Nissan Stadium, the Associated Press reports.

A league spokesman said the matter was being reviewed and the prohibition would last at least through the review.

Equipment used for pyrotechnics during pre-game festivities burst into flames in the north end zone about five minutes before kickoff between the Titans and Colts. Workers quickly started putting out the fire near the 5-yard line on the sideline near the Titans’ locker room.

The show went on as workers extinguished the flames as Taj George, wife of Eddie George and a member of the group Sisters With Voices (SWV) sang the national anthem.

The Titans, who lost to the Colts in that game, put out a statement last Sunday:

“Following the pregame introductions today, there was a mechanical failure by one of the pyrotechnic devices which resulted in a fire. The vendor will be required by the state of Tennessee to undergo an inspection for the defective device and the others that were used to determine the final cause. The field staff acted quickly to extinguish the fire, which resulted in no injuries and minor field damage.”

Titans Coach Mike Vrabel Said He Never Thought About Benching Marcus Mariota During Loss to Jaguars

The Titans offense was awful on Thursday night during their 20-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, with quarterback Marcus Mariota struggling all night against the Jags defense.

The Titans quarterback threw for 304 yards on 23-for-40 passing, but just didn’t have a productive game for the team.

Despite the struggles of the quarterback, coach Mike Vrabel said he was not close to removing Mariota from the game to backup Ryan Tannehill.

“Not very. He just can hear the calls when he puts his helmet on,” Vrabel said explaining why Tannehill was wearing his helmet, via the team’s official transcript on NFL.com.

Mariota took the blame for the setback, stating that he wasn’t able to do anything to help the team in the first half when the Jags jumped out to a 14-0 lead.

“You know, I didn’t help our team at all in the first half, didn’t give our guys chances to make plays and I felt I need to go out and just muster something together,” Mariota said.

“I’ve got to continue to have that mentality throughout the season and just give our guys opportunities to go make plays.”

The Titans who are now 1-2 will be back in action in week four against the Atlanta Falcons on the road.

Browns Fans Earns Indefinite Ban After Pouring Beer on Titans During Sunday’s Win

Browns fans in Cleveland were not very happy Sunday watching their hyped team lose at home by 30 points to the Titans, and one fan took it to another level of stupidity.

The fan, whose name has yet to be released, sprayed a couple Tennessee Titans players with beer, and for his actions is now facing an indefinite ban by the organization.

Jake Trotter of ESPN tweeted out a statement by the Browns about the incident.

Jim Wyatt tweeted out video of the fan pouring beer on the Titans players late in the game after a touchdown.

The Titans didn’t go after the fan in anyway as seen in the video, basically just celebrating the fact they were in the process of a huge week one win.

Delanie Walker Mocks the Browns After the Win: “They Were Who We Thought They Were”

There was a lot of hype around the Browns going into this season. However, Titans tight end Delanie Walker saw the team he was expecting to play against in a 43-13 win in Cleveland, Khadrice Rollins of SI.com reports.

“This is just another game,” Walker told reporters after getting five receptions for 55 yards and two touchdowns. “We ain’t worried about it. I’m gonna tell you again man, they were who we thought they were. Y’all can crown them if you want to crown them. Still got to play football.”
