Titans believe they’ll suffer because of lockout

Conventional wisdom says that teams with new coaching staffs will suffer the most in a lockout.  Even players on those teams are buying in.

Titans safety Michael Griffin says it’s hard for his squad to move forward.

“If we had the same defense, we could all get out here and do seven-on-sevens — do things together, even without the coaches,” Titans safety Michael Griffin told John Glennon of the Tennessean.   “But right now, we just don’t know. That’s the hard part, not knowing the plays and not being able to get your teammates together and get everybody to work together.”

Titans defensive lineman Dave Ball has been paying close attention to the labor mess and doesn’t see light at the end of the tunnel.  He figures that in a best case sceario, the Titans will have to cram 14 weeks of usual OTA work into a month or six weeks.

“It’s going to be the teams that are good every year and that have consistent coaching staffs every year [that will be in better shape].  It’s the teams like the Titans, with new coaching staffs, new schemes and all that . . . We’re going to end up suffering,” Ball said.

No argument here.  The longer the lockout goes on, the more uneven the playing field will be for teams coming off a weak year.   How very un-NFL.

    In a related note, I fear that the Titans will suffer because of the decision to use the #8 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft on Jake Locker.

    All the teams will suffer. So, in reality, they’ll actually all be on an equal playing field.
