Titans S Michael Griffin: It's time to shut up and play


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) Titans free safety Michael Griffin has issued a challenge to his defense: It's put-up and shut-up time.

Griffin will Sunday against Jacksonville no longer be playing aside fellow safety and vocal leader Bernard Pollard, who is out for the season with an Achilles injury. He is trying to take that leadership role and run with it with a different approach.

"Right now, we have to stop all the talking, and start doing," Griffin told The Tennesseean. "We need less talking and more playing, and that is nothing against Bernard. He was our vocal leader, a guy who gets us riled up. But with a four-game losing streak, we need to focus and start playing. We put ourselves in a hole and we have to get out."

The Titans rank 15th in the AFC in points allowed at 27.8 per game.

"Hopefully, we get Michael Griffin up to playing like Michael Griffin," Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray said. "We expect a Pro Bowl player out of Michael, and he knows that.

So get out there and get it done."
