Deep Steel Blueprint: Instant Blitzin' Gonna Get You

John Lennon was a huge Tim Jamison fan.

I must admit, sometimes it is hard to write these blueprints because I try to avoid repeating myself. Lately, it seems as if you could simply put the game on the backs of the offensive line and however they perform will determine the outcome. They bullied Pittsburgh but could not do the same to Oakland or Baltimore.

I could jump to metrics for the Tennessee Titans, but how can I take their defense seriously when they’ve played four offenses that rank 20th or worse on that little Outsiders site and four that would qualify as average-to-below average in raw cumulative stats. If I did stick to the metrics, I could just write about how Houston needs to utilize the tight ends...again. Bore, snore.

The real fun would be in dissecting the Titans' passing attack (4th in DVOA9th in yards per game) as they have faced defenses that average a respectable FO-rank of 11.6. A large part of this success is due to the fact that Tennessee protects Matt Hasselbeck very well, as evidenced by their seven sacks allowed – technically tied for the lead with Buffalo and Oakland, even though both those teams have played one more game.

Of course, that would be similar to what's been said before since it’s all about pressuring the quarterback. The Titans have protected Hasselbeck well, but I could point out how Wade’s defense did against similar pass-blocking stalwart Oakland by harassing Jason Campbell all day to the tune of three sacks and twelve hits. I would then stress that the defense must bring the same unpredictability from last week's game to keep Hasselbeck off target, as Pittsburgh did to him a few weeks ago. 

I don't want to repeat myself though. Luckily, this song I discovered by John Lennon gets the point across instantly to Mr. Hasselbeck.

Tim Jamison’s gonna get you,
Gonna knock you right on the head,
You better get yourself together,
Pretty soon you're gonna be dead,
What in the world you thinking of,
After Timmy gives you a shove,
What on earth you tryin' to do,
When he’s comin’ for you, yeah you.

Brian Cushing’s gonna get you,
Gonna look you right in the face,
Better get yourself together, Matty
Looks like you’re in outer space,
How in the world you gonna see,
Tryin’ to run and flee,
Who on earth do you think you are?
Chris Johnson?
Well, wrong you are.

Well we all blitz on,
Like Watt and Reed and Bar-win,
Well we all blitz on,
Texans D, come on.

Cowboy Ninja’s gonna get you,
Gonna knock you off your feet,
Better recognize pass coverage,
Or you’ll be dead meat,
Why in the world are you here,
Surely you would rather disappear,
Why on earth are you there?
The Ninja’s everywhere,
He’s gonna get his share.

Well we all blitz on,
Like Watt and Reed and Bar-win,
Well we all blitz on,
Blitz on and on and on on on,
Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah-.

Well we all blitz on,
Like Watt and Reed and Bar-win,
Well we all blitz on,
On and on and on on and on.

Well we all blitz on,
Like Watt and Reed and Bar-win,
Well we all blitz on,
Like Watt and Reed and Bar-win,
Well we all blitz on,
Like Watt and Reed and Bar-win,
Well we all blitz on,
Like Watt and Reed and Bar-win.
