Today Youth Austin Johnson Jersey , Madden-School.com posted all the ratings above 80 for each team except for the Bears, Broncos, Bucs, Bills, and Bengals (not sure why its all the B teams, but whatever). They did note that this was from an early build of the game so ratings may change slightly prior to the final release, but these should be pretty close to what you see when the latest version of the game drops on August 10th. So where did the top Titans end up? Jurrell Casey 88Dion Lewis 88Malcolm Butler 87Kevin Byard 85Delanie Walker 84Adoree Jackson 81Rishard Matthews 81Taylor Lewan 80Lets start with the most egregious issue here first. Taylor Lewan as an 80 is absurb, particularly when you look at some of the tackles they ranked above him. Nothing against Jake Matthews, Duane Brown, Donald Penn, and Nate Solder, but none of those guys are near Lewans level. Does Madden think its an accident that hes been to two straight Pro Bowls and consistently ranked near the top of everyones best left tackles in the NFL lists recently? Also, if I asked you to name the top 3 players on the Titans offense right now and your list didnt include Taylor Lewan, Id slap you. One of the other big issues I have with this list is the omission of Brett Kern. Look, there simply arent that many metrics by which punters can possibly be measured. Youve got average yards per punt and net punting average and thats about it. Well, Brett Kern led the NFL in both categories last season and turned in the 7th best punting season OF ALL TIME, so he should be the top punter in the game, right? Apparently not, as Madden somehow has at least 5 punters ranked above him (probably 6 since Marquette King is on one of the teams that wasnt leaked). Thats indefensible. Lets talk real quick about Kevin Byard. Hes quickly become one of the best safeties in the game, leading the NFL in interceptions and earning a First Team All-Pro selection in 2017. If that doesnt earn him a 90+ rating, I dont know what does. Even more ridiculous are some of the safeties that the game ranked above him. Andre Hal (get well soon), D.J. Swearinger, Lamarcus Joyner Authentic Logan Ryan Jersey , and Keanu Neal are all fine players, but none of them belong in Byards class, much less ranked ahead of him. I find it interesting that Dion Lewis is rated so high, but there is no sight of Derrick Henry. You all know how I feel about Lewis, but the gap between the two backs isnt nearly that big. Finally, Madden has Avery Williamson rated as an 83 for the Jets which means they thought he was the 4th best player on the Titans last season behind Casey, Byard, and Walker. Imagine really believing that. I know that its not easy to rank every active player in the NFL and there are always going to be some differences of opinion, but it seems every year there are some real head scratchers in there. You can find the full list of leaked rankings here.Which rating (or omission) do you find most offensive?What record will the 2018 Tennessee Titans finish with? Before we get to this article, I just want to say one thing about the Titans finishing the preseason at 0-4: The 2008 Detroit Lions and 2017 Cleveland Browns were both 4-0 in the preseason. Both teams finished 0-16. It doesnt matter.With that out of the way, theres big expectations amongst fans for this team with a new coaching staff and new, talented faces on both sides of the ball (mostly defense). A couple of key matchups, including games at home against both the Eagles and Patriots, stand out. The schedule itself is a little intimidating, but I think the Titans can do just fine as long as Matt LaFleur gives Marcus Mariota a more comfortable environment to work with.With that in mind, how many games do you think the Titans will win this season?I think the least they can win is 9, with the most being 11. LaFleurs presence should greatly help the guard situation in Tennessee, and his zone blocking scheme should do wonders to highlight the athleticism of the unit. Mariota is a top 10 quarterback in my mind, and his ability to quickly progress through his cycles and throw accurately into tight windows and under pressure stands out.Tennessees wide receivers may be unexperienced, but I trust LaFleur to get the most out of them. Delanie Walker is still a high quality tight end, and Jonnu Smith looks like he can be good too. The combination of Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis in the backfield could be one of the best in football as well. Jurrell Casey is the focal point of the Titans offense, and when you add Harold Landry and Rashaan Evans, you suddenly have an insane amount of linebacker depth. Adoree Jackson looks like he can be good Womens DaQuan Jones Jersey , Malcolm Butler is an upgrade over past Titans corners, and Kevin Byard is coming off a terrific 2017 campaign.If Mike Mularkey were still coaching this team, I dont think they be close to a shot at competing, and I think they would regress. With LaFleur as offensive coordinator, that changes things greatly. I wasnt high on the Mike Vrabel hire, but all he has to do is make the defense play at least to a complimentary level. As long as Mariota is given more room to work with, that will greatly improve this teams chances of winning and allow them to return to the playoffs.The matchups against all three division rivals (Jaguars with that defense, Colts with Andrew Luck returning, and Texans with Deshaun Watson returning) will all be a little more interesting this time around, but I think the Titans can at least take care of the matchups at home. The matchup against Miami in week 1 could be tougher than expected considering the upgrade in talent at receiver and the secondary, as well as Ryan Tannehill making his return. I have faith that this team can win at Buffalo considering how bad that team looks on paper, and the game against the Jets should be a win too (though if Sam Darnold starts, that should be a fun game). One game to look out for is the London matchup against the Chargers, expected to win the AFC West this year. Overall, I dont see Tennessee winning anymore than 11 games, but also winning at least 9 in the process while winning the AFC South. The offensive line is good, the quarterback is extremely accurate, the backfield is enticing, the receiving corps is put in a much better situation with LaFleur, the linebacker group looks great, and the secondary is quality.With that said, what record do you think the Titans will finish with in 2018?
