Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans ...
Mike Munchak recently surprised Michael Roos with a text. Roos’ 10th year in the NFL will be his first without Munchak, a Hall of Fame offensive lineman, as his position coach or head coach, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.
To which I say: It’s a big transition year for Roos, who is under new
coaches and in the final year of his contract with Taylor Lewan poised to take his job in a year. Roos is a quality pro and will handle it all as well as anyone on the roster would.
Michael Preston is bidding to replace Damian Williams as the Titans' No. 4 receiver, says Lauren Moore of The Tennessean. Receivers coach Shaun Jefferson calls Preston a jack of all trades.
Finally, your soccer read of the day. The narrative about Michael Bradley playing poorly isn’t actually accurate, writes Beck Barnes.
To which I say: A lot of good points here, and the position switch does amount to taking one for the team. But Bradley’s first touch in big situations has been poor, and it needs to be better if the U.S. is to get to the quarterfinals. I want desperately to believe that we will win.
