More likely to play is linebacker
Pollard had five tackles, all solo. Verner had three tackles, all solo. Brown had four tackles, all solo. Casey didn't record a single tackle.
Of the four, Pollard is the most consistent tackler, averaging 6.2 in 15 games. The others are dependent on either interceptions or sacks for their production.
Brown was upset by his benching Sunday against Arizona after playing just six snaps. He will likely not start in Week 16 against Jacksonville despite being second on the team with 104 tackles and adding four sacks.
Munchak said he had higher expectations for Brown. That came as a surprise to Brown, who offered that no coach has told him what he needs to do to improve. Brown said he suspects that he has been benched for freelancing too much.
"I was doing what they asked me to do, but at the same time, you've got to go make a play and I guess they didn't like that," Brown told The Tennesseean. "So for me, I'm thinking 'What you want me to do?' ... I'm not a robot. If you look at all the good players, they all take chances."
Brown picked off Matt McGloin inside the 20-yard line in the first quarter to give the Titans favorable field position. It was the second interception by a Tennessee linebacker this season. he finished the game with a team-high eight tackles (five solo), one tackle for a loss and two defended passes in a 23-19 victory.
