Titans Focused on Slowing Down Giants Rookie Runner Saquon Barkley


We saw what Titans running back Derrick Henry did to the Jaguars last Thursday in Nashville. Now the Titans are hoping Giants running back Saquon Barkley won’t do the same against them on Sunday on the road.
The rookie is the NFL’s third leading rusher with over 1,100 yards on the ground this season.

Said Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees:”When he gets the corner. If you ever watch him, he has got another gear. I mean a lot of guys will jump cut and they can spin. They can do a lot of things. This guys can take it the distance. Just ask Washington. The guy can run. he can run away. I watched that Washington film when he was running. There was nobody gaining on him either.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
