Ray Horton: 'Very few mental mistakes'

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A new scheme is being installed and a lot of guys have altered responsibilities.

Defensive coordinator Ray Horton has not given the Tennessee Titans new stuff in small doses. Like the offense, players have been put under stress this offseason by being given a great deal.

So as players sort through a lot of new information, it would seem likely they would botch things and need corrections, reminders, reinforcement.

“There have been very few mental mistakes which is amazing for putting in a brand new defense,” Horton said. “The 'buying in' part comes when you have some adversity, and how do they react to that? But I am very happy with where we are."

Very few mental mistakes has to be very encouraging.

Horton wants smart guys, and that he was able to offer that assessment at the end of organized team activities suggests he has them.
