    It's funny that the national media conversation has centered around Henry and Mahomes while Tannehill is treated as an afterthought. A direct comparison of Tannehill and Mahomes since week 10, including playoffs: Tannehill (9 games): 132/198, 1922 yds, 66.7% completions, 9.7 Yds/att, 19 TD, 3 INT, 123.7 passer rating. (+ 4 rushing TDs) Mahomes (8 games): 185/278, 2172 yds, 66.5% compl, 7.8 yds/att, 16 TD, 4 INT, 103.3 passer rating (+ 2 rushing TDs) Despite Mahomes having far more pass attempts, Tannehill has outperformed him in virtually every meaningful category. Not because Mahomes has been bad at all...but because Tannehill has been that damned good. Perhaps the better question is this: if Tannehill plays at the level he's maintained since week 10....can Mahomes keep up?

    He lasted logged in Dec 30th, his last action was laughing at me posting Code's post about wanting to extend Mariota...... Ironically this was one of his last posts: He wanted to see how Tannehill finished the year. The regular season finale was Dec 29th. Might should have aimed a little higher!

    The next time you think about getting on your knees and sucking Jrob off, keep in mind he drafted Corey Davis over Pat Mahomes.

    I'm expecting the Chiefs to jump out to an early lead after they get the ball first (we win the coin toss), maybe 17-0 or even 21-0. Kind of a reversal of Sunday. But I think Pees will get the defense right around mid 2nd quarter and the bleeding will be lessened. The Titans will eventually score a couple times before halftime, a touchdown and Joseph's first field goal of the year for us, and we'll carry momentum into the half. The 3rd quarter we'll score on the first drive to make it a game. The Chiefs will respond on their bext drive to make it 28-17. Next possession Tanny tosses a pick 6 and drives the crowd into a frenzy. 35-17. At this point the Titans begin mounting a furious comeback, Tanny throwing back to back touchdown bombs to Kahlif Raymond, followed by a monster drive by Derrick Henry that he punches in for the score, putting the Titans ahead for the first time in the game early in the 4th quarter, 38-35. The teams trade a couple of go-nowhere possessions but the Chiefs finally get a break when, after they go 3 and out, Tanny gets sacked in the endzone for a safety. The Chiefs score a touchdown on ensuing punt return, pushing the score up to 44-38, with about 3 minutes left in the game. King Henry Time. We ride Henry on the most important drive of the playoffs, draining nearly all the time off the clock, and we score a touchdown off a Firkser with about 14 seconds left in the game. XP is good, making the score 45-44. The Chiefs are out of timeouts. They get the ball on the 25 after a touchback. Mahomes gets off a pass to Kelce for about 27 yards and he goes out of bounds with around 7 or 8 seconds left. Next play Tyreek Hill catches a crossing pattern, weaving his way through traffic, and breaks free running at a breakneck pace toward the end zone with Adoree Jackson trying frantically to catch him. Just as Tyreek gets within 2 yards of the pylon, with time having just expired, Jackson catches him from being and tackles him just out of bounds, preserving the win for the Titans. Titans go on to crush the Packers in the Super Bowl on the back of the first ever 300 yard rushing game by a RB.

    Burleson says that Henry effectively carrying the ball 30 times per game causes the defense to react more on play action, opening up the passing game. But I know a poster or two who would love to argue with more NFL vets about how they’re wrong because they read an analytics article once.

    LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Let's face it, being a fan of this franchise has not been easy. My early rooting years go back to the Earl Campbell days. Those Luv Ya Blue Oilers were so good back then and had a legit chance, but Pittsburgh always stood in our way. In the 1978 season, our first AFC Championship Game we got the worst weather possible. We were a team built on a dominating running game, built for post-season bad weather runs, but the Three Rivers field was a sheet of ice. Earl never got going and we were trounced. The following year we made it back to the AFCC and Three Rivers again. We were banging it out with them when Renfro caught a touchdown that would have tied the score... but was inexplicably ruled no catch by the referees. It wasn't even a hard call. It's hard enough to win on the road against a great opponent; it's impossible when you don't get credit for what you actually do. That one was tough to swallow. The Oilers, as such, in spite of having some really good teams with Warren Moon, would never get back to the AFCC. The Run n' Shoot teams were decidedly not built for the playoffs. We would constantly choke away leads and fall short with comebacks. Eventually things got so bad the team was forced out of Houston. As an out of state fan I followed them to Tennessee where I hoped they would attract a rabid following and start making some noise again. It took a bit to settle in but once they had a home in the Coliseum, they went on a magical run. First they paid the Bills back for the playoff choke (and BTW the refs had a big hand in that playoff debacle as well) with the MCM. Then they beat the Jags for the third straight time, once again on the road in the AFCC. The Jags only had a better seed than us that year because literally nobody else could beat them. We went 13-3, they went 14-2 with us hanging both losses on them. I mean are you kidding me? Talk about getting no help. The thing I remember most about that AFCC game is Mason's kick return (after a safety). We were handling them again but the game was close. We needed somebody to do something special and DMase came through -- gave us a two score lead lead that we would not relinquish. That was another team built around a punishing runner, Eddie George and stout defense. Of course we fell to the Rams in the Super Bowl (basically due to a lucky bomb that Warner threw up for grabs just before he got annihilated by Kearse that was misplayed by a secondary decimated by injuries). The rest of the 2000's saw some dominant Titans teams that just couldn't get over the hump. The hump was usually named Ravens. When we finally did have a team that rose to the top and had an inside track to hosting an AFCC or two the Ravens were there to spoil the party, getting dominated but somehow still beating us due to bad luck, bad kicking, bad game plans -- unethical cheating through intentional injuries. Fisherball was built to win close games. It worked many times, but it left you vulnerable to bad things happening. They always seemed to happen against the Ravens. We made it back to the AFCC a few years later and played a potent Raiders team, once again on the road. We were a hot team and solid all around. It was a 3 point game into the 4Q but then the Raiders dominated that quarter and won going away. Nobody made a play late. Which brings us to the present day and our fifth AFCC, once again on the road. We are 1-3 so far. We have never hosted one... always on the road. Always coming in as battle-tested underdogs. Always run-heavy teams with standout defenses and game manager QBs. Three of the 4 were against (at the time) division rivals -- massive arch-enemies. We were annihilated in the first, a victim of weather that neutralized our main weapon. We gave them all they could handle in the second but were screwed by incompetent refs. We triumphed in the third! When we needed a play one of our most dynamic play-makers made one and tipped the scales in our direction. We went toe to toe with a dangerous offense in the fourth but ultimately could not stop them when it mattered most. So which game will the fifth be like? Again we enter with a bruising RB, the second coming of Earl, impossible to tackle when he gets a head of steam. As a subplot bonus, King Henry was no king until our previous generation's bruising back took him under his wing and explained what it would take. Since that Eddie Kung Fu grasshopper moment Henry has been the best RB in the league... maybe ever? It's unreal. And is Tannehill really a game manager QB? The two playoff box scores would indicate yes, but we know that's deceiving. He's been quite efficient when called upon. The shocking thing is that we didn't really need him to do much in the first two games. Yes, because of Henry, but also because of the DEFENSE. As mind-blowing as the running game has been, the performance of the defense is what I did not see coming. Frankly they seemed kind of mediocre for much of the year. Lots of good players but as a unit just not elite. Until the playoffs. I was impressed with what they did against the Patriots, but I didn't understand what was happening until the Ravens game. The Patriots were a wounded animal offensively and I kind of thought Brady was washed up. Brady played better than I expected but so did our defense. That goal line stand changed the game completely and was a sign of things to come. Holding the dynastic Patriots to 13 in their own home was something to be very proud of. But holding the record-setting Ravens to 12 in their own home in a game in which their offense was playing catch-up the whole time is somewhat miraculous. The Charm City Miracle? I had a hard time believing what I was seeing. Pees devised a brilliant game plan but even so it would have been ineffective if the players hadn't been able to execute it. Up and down the roster though the players came through with big plays. Casey with a strip sack. The whole secondary batting away balls. Great tackling (usually). Great discipline (except for the Evans blitz whiff, but worth a try once or twice). FOUR fourth down stops. Our short yardage defense is elite. This was a revelation. Not only do we have the best running game, not only do we have a ruthlessly efficient QB that we haven't even really needed much but now we also have a dominating defense with the coaches winning the game plan battle and players playing their best games of the season? This may be the perfect storm on defense. Evans has become a supersonic guided missile. Simmons is verging on beast mode. Casey is a freed up wild animal. Honor bends like Gumby. Adoree has come back from injury like a wet blanket. This new guy Brock is the real deal -- a few times a game I think to myself nice play Brock. Vaccaro is flying through the air powered by fan love, Byard is a big-play waiting to happen. Logan Ryan is invaluable. DaQuan is a brick wall. Roberson contributing. Long knifing through gaps. Old man Woodyard fresh as a daisy ready tackling everything near him. Jayon come back we need you! They will certainly have their hands full with this KC attack. However, unless the last two games were some sort of fluky mirage, we'll have a good game plan to slow them down and we'll have players making plays to stop drives and hopefully get turnovers. So there's a few ways we can win this game. Plan A : Do what we did in the first two games. Ride a running attack to a lead and play a field position game, limiting their offense to 3's and 0's as much as we can. That we play the weakest rushing defense so far in the playoffs gives me great hope that we can go on long drives and keep Mahomes on the bench getting cold, literally and figuratively. If KC's offense turns out to be too good for us, then Plan B : Open up the throttle on offense. Instead of 70/30 running, go 50/50 or 40/60. Tannehill would have to play well under heavy pressure. He will. Plan C : KC's defense plays their best game and their offense does its usual. We trail late but it's within reach. Tannehill will need to lead a one or two score comeback. He can do it. He hasn't had to yet in the playoffs, so it's a mystery to all of us whether he can or not. I have one request for the coaches if this comes to pass. Please please please do not take Henry off the field unless he needs a breather. Use him in the short passing game and continue to mix in runs. I think we get much easier to defend when he's not out there. You can almost see the sigh of relief from the defenders as they realize they can just drop back into coverage and tee off on the pass rush. If the offensive coaches can figure out how to make that work (what's wrong with hitting Henry streaking across the middle 4 yards from the LOS? I wouldn't want to tackle that freight train) then I think we're unstoppable even in catch-up mode. Here's to a great game and no injuries. KC fans you have a heck of a team, a generational QB, and your own tortuous history. I'm sure whatever happens on Sunday it'll be epic.

    Throwing the ball only 4 times on 1st down through 3 quarters set RT up for failure. You can't wait for the team to be down double digits and pass the ball. KC sold out to stop the run and the Titans counter was to run the ball. Failure

    We might need to draft a QB

    Tannehill gave us the best QB play we’ve had in nearly two decades. And at the same time, if we’re being honest, even the biggest fans of the guy know he’s putting us in a situation that could bite us in the ass as early as next season if we decide to keep him. He won’t come cheap, and you can’t blame him for the way he’s played. But mixed with his own history of (relative) mediocrity and the reliance of a dominant run game to maximize this offense - were being put in a position where a 30+ million dollar contract could outright gimp this franchise if he or Henry revert more towards the mean. He’s not the long term guy. He’s the right now guy. Realistically for the next 2-3 seasons, but to even keep him as the right-now guy, were very likely to have to pay him like a legitimate franchise QB. And that’s scary as fuck, especially considering the other players on the final year of their contract heading into the offseason. We could tie up 150 million dollars between Ryan and Henry easily, and there’s a very real scenario where those contracts look hideous as early as the midway point of next season. There’s so many decisions - from the QB, to the RB, to the OL and even the secondary, and there just isn’t enough money realistically to keep this all together as is. And even if there was, the odds of us replicating this success doesn’t seem super likely if I’m being honest. Historic red zone efficiency and Henry playing at a level few RBs have ever played at. We’d be banking on that happening again, with a potentially worse team around them, and at 20x the cost we’re paying them now. This offseason will be interesting and terrifying because of the long term ramifications. We could look like geniuses and keep a core together and make a couple of more runs in the next few seasons, or we could be trapped in horrible contracts with two players with the very real potential for declining performance.

    I have one thing to say for now

    This is idiotic. No one was calling for the Titans to draft a QB that year. And Mahomes was not considered a lock that year, either. You might as well complain about when we didn't draft Russell Wilson or Tom Brady.
  25. 5 points
    I think KC is the better team and belong in the SB. THAT SAID, the lack of holding calls against KC has been ridiculous. There's been egregious holds on nearly every Mahomes scramble. There have been other 50/50 calls (like the "hold" on Brock) that ALL went KC's way. There are a few fingers on the scale, for sure.

    7:05am kickoff for us which is pretty good compared to the 3am kickoffs early in the season when daylight savings is reversed in both countries, no need to take time off work as i'm semi retired thanks to some smart investments made during the mining boom in the early 2000's.

    Oh you got me there. It's completely realistic of you to expect me to just block off my entire day to go through hours of game tape, splice out plays, and post them here just for you to dismiss it anyways? GTFOH. I really don't care whether you believe what I'm saying or not because I don't need the validation from you or anyone. Going by the numbers Henry shouldn't be doing what he's doing, we shouldn't be beating the teams we're beating, and we shouldn't even bother watching on Sunday. Analytics are a tool. they're not the entire game and I'm not taking them as holy gospel, you can if you want.

    Sneak peak into the next thing I'm working on: One thing I loved about the site when we were TC was how the salary cap and numbers were always available. I plan on bringing it back as long as I can maintain it. Every field in the table will be sortable and you can also search for anything, too. I plan to have multiple years and include dead money, IR, and practice squad like we used to have like Spotrac.

    AFC Championship Week: Titans @ Chiefs

    The problem isn't that you share an opposing view point. I share apposing view points all the time here and don't get there same reaction you do. You get the feedback you do because you are constantly, excessively negative. You NEVER give the Titans a chance and constantly sell us short. It's annoying to hear someone saying the same exact thing, knowing they can't be moved no matter how wrong they're proven to be week after week. I thought you evolved after apologizing to the board for being overly negative but it seems you haven't changed at all. I regret having your back in that thread given that it's clear you haven't learned anything. And cut it out with the whole liberal thing, no one is out here shitting on you for your political views; we have a politics board for that.
  34. 4 points
    Thats not what we are talking about. It's the playcalling on the last drive of the 1st half, where many believe the game was lost, and early in the 3rd after the defense got off the field to start the half. Anything after the Chiefs went up 28-17 is irrelevant.

    The Window Is Open

    If this team re-signs Tannehill and Henry we can compete with any team in the league. Props to JRob for firing Mularkey and hiring Vrabel after winning a game in the playoffs. We have a young core. Henry has probably 3-4 years until he really starts slowing down. The time is now. We still need secondary help considering the heavy passing offenses like KC today and HOU twice a year. We stand to lose at least one corner so our weakness may become even weaker. Vrabel is still learning in some ways but I believe he can lead us to a title. The franchise is a lot better than it was just a few years ago. We have a window with this core and we’re at the front end of it. Let’s hope we can win one while this team is together. It was painful to go out today but not many people expected us to be here. I was born an Oilers fan in 1975 and I’m proud to be a Titans fan in 2020. This core gives us one of the best chances of my lifetime for the franchise to win a Super Bowl. Luv Ya Blue!

    Vrabel deserves a Ton of Credit

    The thing that stands out is that the Titans are prepared. They've come out with team-specific gameplans and they've held to them. It's a matchup league -- the Pats were great about using guys in certain roles for certain matchups. They didn't always need the best talent at every position. Titans are doing that now (Firkser killing it, Correa a key vs Ravens, David Long on short downs, using Brock in coverage, Raymond on deep playaction, Jonnu in 1-on-1 redzone situations). We are maximizing talent.
