Titans’ receivers coach says they can impose their will on defenses

USA Today

With the 220-pound Julio Jones joining the 226-pound A.J. Brown as the Titans’ top two wide receivers, their position coach thinks opposing defenses won’t know what hit them.

Titans receivers coach Rob Moore said today that they may have the most physically impressive pair of starting receivers in the league, and they should be able to impose their will on opposing defenses.

“I’m just looking forward to the opportunity to be able to step on the field with someone like that. You understand the problems it causes defenses. To get him and AJ on the field at the same time, opposing defenses, they have some decisions to make,” Moore said, via Emily Proud of WKRN.

Moore said after seeing Jones on the practice field that he’s particularly impressed with his size, speed and body control, and he said he has always appreciated Jones’ abilities as a downfield blocker. He should make an already good Titans Offense even better.

  1. Don’t forget about some guy named Henry in the backfield. He will also force the hand of a defense in a hurry.

  2. Well, I suppose if you can trade for a guy like Rodgers defenses may think that. But whoever your current QB is, isn’t scaring anybody, it doesn’t matter who lines up at WR.

  3. Teams without Derrick Henry, Julio Jones and AJ Brown imposed their will on yours quite frequently last year and you did nothing to improve that defense.

    So since you haven’t learned this yet, you will. It won’t matter if your own defense cannot get stops.

  4. It’s one thing when players have to talk up the bravado, but when it’s starting to be coaches that do it, it’s really a turn off. Just play the game without telling everyone you’re going to “impose” your will on their defenses…👎

  5. CB’s are pro’s also. No one will be intimidated. They will look at it as a challenge, a foe to conquer. I expect blitz and pass rush to get ramped up to foil that plan anyway. You just swapped out Smith for Jones. Same ol’, same ol’

  6. You mean the guy who statistically has been a top 5 QB in the NFL over the past 2 seasons? Yep, no need to game plan for that guy. And no need to mention Henry here, this is the WRs coach simply talking about his WRs he gets to coach. I’m sure he knows all about Derrick Henry.

  7. As we all saw in the SB ONLY if the QB has the time to set up and scan the field!

    Mahomes had a 53% completion percentage and a 52.3% QB rating against Tampa Bay and he’s the top QB in the NFL, the defense determines what a QB can do, NOT the WRs!
