Just to be clear http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/quinton-spain-jersey , Matt LaFleur has called plays in NFL games as an offensive coordinator."I called the fourth preseason game actually in Green Bay and I called the second half of the Oakland game last year ...," LaFleur said Monday. "Every opportunity you get to go out and do that, situations arise. You've got to think quickly on your feet. The more experience you get, I think the more calm you'll remain in those situations and be able to give the guys a better call."LaFleur, 38, has had to be a quick study, taking advantage of each opportunity to learn to call plays since Mike Vrabel hired him as offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans. LaFleur has immersed himself into it through the offseason program, through live periods and during the first 10 days of training camp.His first big test comes Thursday night when the Titans visit the Green Bay Packers for the preseason opener for both teams. Vrabel knows what he wants to see from LaFleur."Efficiency, making sure that we got clean operation getting the guys in and out of the huddle," Vrabel said. "Whatever personnel group we're going with, let's go with it. Let's make a call and make sure we give these guys a chance to line up and make a play."LaFleur has worked with some dynamic play-callers in the NFL, including Gary Kubiak in Houston, Mike Shanahan in Washington, Kyle Shanahan while coaching quarterbacks with the Atlanta Falcons and McVay in 2017 as coordinator when the Los Angeles Rams led the NFL in points scored.Now it's LaFleur, who also interviewed for the head coaching job that went to Vrabel , in position to call the offensive plays that he's been installing with quarterback Marcus Mariota."We as coaches Authentic Dion Lewis Jersey , we try to prepare for every situation so you're ready for that moment," LaFleur said. "But inevitably every week when you watch games something occurs like, 'Wow. I may not have thought about that before.' It's just trying to do the best you can to prepare for every moment. But inevitably you're going to have to think on your feet at some point and time in the game."Calling plays, which McVay handles with the Rams, was the big draw for LaFleur to Tennessee. He also has Mariota, the No. 2 overall pick in 2015, and running back Derrick Henry as a pair of Heisman Trophy winners to work with along with an offensive line returning each starter.Even with all that talent, the Titans have plenty of room for improvement on offense. Tennessee ranked 23rd in total yards per game, 23rd in yards passing and 19th in points per game. The Rams, with a second-year quarterback in Jared Goff and NFL Offensive Player of the Year Todd Gurley , ranked no lower than 10 in any of those categories with the biggest leap in scoring. The Rams went from last in the NFL in points per game in 2016 to a league-best 29.8 points in 2017.The key will be how quickly the Titans, particularly Mariota, learn the new scheme designed to take advantage of the quarterback's mobility. LaFleur believes the Titans have made a lot of progress since the offseason when the defense got the best of the offense to now with practice more of a tug of war between both units."We've got a great group of guys, and it is fun to watch these guys grow," LaFleur said. "And I think we are improving on a daily basis."NOTES: WR Corey Davis did not practice after leaving Saturday's practice early, but Vrabel said Davis will be fine. LB Brian Orakpo (shoulder) Womens Ben Jones Jersey , LB Rashaan Evans, CB Demontre Hurst, OL Kevin Pamphile, DL Bennie Logan and LB Sharif Finch also did not practice.Follow Teresa M. Walker at teresamwalkerSteelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt wrecked the Titans’ offensive line last night Nashville is currently getting worked over the Titans’ first team offense looking pretty sloppy against the Steelers—who defeated Tennessee 16-6—last night, and yeah it was bad. Again, though, it’s still preseason, and none of this will matter unless it happens in the regular season. Preseason exists so players can get back in a groove and shake off the rust, not play like superstars every game.With that said, the first team offensive line struggled. In particular, Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt played dominant against Tennessee, racking up the pressures on Marcus Mariota and sacking him once. Entering his fifth season in the league, Tuitt is only 25 years old, which means he has yet to reach his ceiling while also being a stud young pass rusher.Keeping this in mind, let’s look at what exactly Tuitt had Tennessee’s number last night.gamepass.nfl.comThis isn’t even close. We knew going into the season that the Titans had issues at the guard spots, and right guard Josh Kline gets bulldozed by Tuitt on the offense’s very first play. He also makes mince meat out of Derrick Henry Authentic Jayon Brown Jersey , also blocking on the play, as he nearly sacks Mariota. The quarterback was able to get the ball to Tajae Sharpe, though.gamepass.nfl.comDerrick Henry once again is assigned to block Tuitt, but this time he’s all alone. Henry’s blocking on this play is pretty bad, so much so that it almost looks like a mismatch. Tuitt pushes Henry aside and brings Mariota down as a result.gamepass.nfl.comLastly, Henry is not blocking Tuitt here. Instead, it’s the left tackle Taylor Lewan. Like the others that came before him, Lewan gets owned by Tuitt, who counters Lewan’s hands with his own and executes the Dwayne Freeney/Everson Griffen-esque spin move for great results. He’s able to apply pressure on Mariota, who gets the ball out, but way too high for Corey Davis.Stephon Tuitt should be a massive piece for the Steelers’ defensive line this season. He’s a powerful, athletic pass rusher that’s only getting better here on out. Meanwhile, the Titans’ offensive line clearly has work to do. Though, then again, it is the preseason.
