New HC Mike Mularkey emphasizing the Titans' run game

Titans Online - [Full Article]

The ascension of HC Mike Mularkey might be a good thing for Titans RB Antonio Andrews.

“Coach Mularkey has been preaching the run since day one, he takes it to heart to run the ball with a physical attitude, and we mirror his expectations,’’ guard Chance Warmack said. “We want to be physical off the ball and try and get our identity going again.”

Guard Byron Bell said the Titans responded on Wednesday.

“We started off with a run period, and that set a tone,’’ Bell said. “Guys were getting after it, we had a couple of guys scrapping. We’re bringing out the physicality.

“Coach Mularkey has a good game plan going in, and one of them is to finish. He told is straight up we are going to run the football. The challenge is set, we just have to go out there and do it.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Earlier in the week, Mularky called Antonio Andrews the "workhorse right now at running back," so it looks like the team will feed the ball to Andrews as long as they can. He has a nice matchup with the Saints, but if the Titans fall behind, they won't be able to run the ball as much as they'd like.
