  1. Jonnu obviously has the athletic traits you want out of your TE these days. He also has shown a very good ability to get YAC. The issue besides a couple of timely drops and a couple of fumbles are his mistakes in the blocking game. He has improved his blocking from his rookie year a good bit, but he still has a ways to go. He is still below average as an inline blocker which limits his usefulness in this offense. We don't flex out our TE's 30 plays a game, we run a lot of play-action, so he better get better at blocking if he wants to be counted on as back up #1 to Delanie.
  2. He ran a 6.81 3 cone time though, which means his short area quickness is elite.
  3. He will play early. He is very polished already and he has a great work ethic. They always seem to describe him as a student of the game, loves to study film, gym rat, and things like this in various articles i've read about him. I like the fact that he will contribute early for this offense.
  4. AJ was a big time player coming out of HS, and he was a star at Ole Miss from the beginning. Ole Miss has had a lot of talented WR's over the past 5 years, but if you actually follow Ole Miss closely, AJ Brown has been the best WR for Ole Miss the past 2 years. He was very productive as a young player when Treadwell was the go to guy. Brown has thrived in various roles for Ole Miss and they have moved him all over. I think his versatility to play slot and the X and Y positions is going to make him invaluable if we have injuries. He can play all of the spots well and he just knows how to get open and is tough. He has great hands and he is very good at making guys miss and juking guys but he also has good power and ability to break arm tackles as well, he is excellent at getting YAC. Jrob got us a good one here.
  5. AJ Brown is a faster version of Anquan Boldin imo. A lot of analysts are making the Jarvis Landry comparison which i can see as well. Love this pick. Brown was as productive of a WR in the SEC as it gets throughout his entire career.
  6. I see the libatards in this thread are still drinking the stupid kool-aid.
  7. I see the usual retards are still posting in this thread lolz.
  8. No one said they go hand in hand, but our OL sucks at both. If you try to convince me that because we are 7th overall in rushing in the NFL currently in a pass happy league that has clearly demonstrated that throwing the ball is the best way to score points under the current rules, well i am not even going to continue talking to you. Using meaningless unrelated statistics to support an argument is silly. Typically, good passing games and good running games have a direct correlation to each others success when looking at football metrics. Sure you can have imbalances and outliers but overall both passing efficiency and running efficiency help the other one out. We are awful at both. Our running efficiency is terrible if you take out the last game. No one with a brain uses total yards to judge the production and efficiency output.
  9. Yes again this is not complicated stuff. It is quite easy to figure out that our RB's are not the issue, our QB isn't the issue. The issue is quite simple. The OL sucks. The play-calling and coaching is poor. This is not very hard to figure out to those of us that are not bullied by the same 5 idiots that post 20x a day. If i listened to Oilerman, Number9, WG53 and that group of titanscentral board idiots we would still have Jeff Fisher as our coach and they would still be bitching and blaming the GM and the ownership for all of the problems of the organization. These guys are the biggest homers blinded by their crazy ideologies and they are consistently wrong about everything. Outside of Bongo, you would be hard pressed to find a group of posters that are worse at their predictions and assessments than this group of blowhards.
  10. The Chip Kelly experiment? He turned a washed up Michael Vick into a pro bowl QB for one year, he got more out of journeyman Mark Sanchez than anyone had or has, and he got Nick Foles a huge pay day and got the eagles a 2nd and fourth round pick along with Sam Bradford in return but sadly for Foles he was sent off to Jeff Fisher, killer of QB's and offenses. Foles went back to the Eagles and won a superbowl once he left Jeff Fisher's graveyard, meanwhile Jeff Fisher's rams got taken over by Mcvay and are putting more points on the board than we can count at this point. Chip Kelly's X's and O's and schemes sent NFL DC's in a frenzy in his first 3 years with the Eagles. Chip Kelly did not succeed in the NFL because of his play - calling or scheme. He failed because his staff didn't like him, he was viewed as racist, he ran off a lot of talented and well- liked players because he wanted to show his team who was boss and has a my way or highway kind of attitude. His off the wall practice schedule and sports science stuff was made fun of by Eagles players initially, and now a lot of those ideas are pretty standard for every NFL team. Chip Kelly has his issues as a coach, but his scheme and offensive mind are certainly not the problem, in fact he is still considered one of the best offensive minds in any level of football even with all of the negative press and his failure with the Eagles and his 1 year stint at SF.
  11. Why does Lewis lead the league in negative rushes as a Titan in his first year? Go look at his stats for negative plays when he was a patriot for 3 years. You will see a huge disparity in that statistic. How come Henry gets big runs when he has enough time to get a few steps in, instead of having to change directions, wait for lanes to never open, and try to read the defense while making such decisions? The issues our RB's face are quite similar to the issues that Mariota has to deal with as a QB. The issue is not the players, the issue is the scheme\playcalling and the OL's inability to do anything well. Sure keep on going down the path of a complete firesale of all our players. I've seen enough from the same vocal minority on this board that seem to think Mariota sucks, Cory Davis, Henry, Lewis, Demarco Murray, Taylor, Sharpe all suck or are overrated, but at some point you would think that maybe it's not the skill players that are the issue. Maybe it is the OL and the coaches. I have seen enough talent, good plays and ability out of a lot of our skill players. We have enough talent at those positions to be a good offense. The problem has consistently been poor OL play and predictable play calling.
  12. You choose to look at his stats and play throughout an entire game as your assessment point. That is flawed. In all 7 of the games we have won for example this year, Mariota has played very well in certain stretches. Taking into account his injury, the handcuffed play calling, the porous OL play into account, one aspect consistently shows up despite these issues. When the game is on the line, and our offense is aggressive \ and in desperation mode, Mariota typically plays outstanding. So i then sit here wondering why they don't build our offensive style to let him and our offense play that way from the very start of a game and see what happens.
  13. I've seen more than enough of Mariota over the past 4 years to see he has a lot of ability. When he has had good offensive line play and Delanie Walker and a decent running game he has been a top 7 QB looking at any metric or statistical category you want to bring up. If you want to make this about Mariota's injury history that would be an acceptable concern. Once QB's get hurt a lot, they tend to panic and make more poor decisions than a confident QB. I don't believe Mariota has reached this point yet, but this is a valid argument. I would argue that i have seen Mariota play very well despite bad OL play, an injured nerve, and a constant rotation of WR's and TE's and still he has played very well at times this year when they open up the playbook and let him run and pass. Trying to run it on first and second down and being predictable at the start of each game has been an awful formula for dual threat QB's in the NFL. Let Mariota be Mariota and if he gets hurt running it so be it. Most of his injuries and injuries to mobile QB's have been in the pocket injuries for the record. Now one could argue that dual threat QB's don't have as good of instincts and pocket awareness that pure pocket passer QB's have and i would tend to agree with that generalization as well, but again is a set of different discussions than the one we are having in this thread. Mariota if given some weapons, a half way decent set of play-calls and the freedom to scramble and run and throw the ball more than 20x a game has typically resulted in very positive results for the titans offense. Let him throw the ball 35x a game and watch how many points our offenses output changes.
  14. Whoever told you such things is absolutely retarded then. Mariota looked bad in 11v11 live sessions, but he was pretty damn good in 11v11 on air sessions. That should have been a good indicator to our offensive staff that he is not making good decisions and is struggling to process what is going on when he is worried about his protections and where the pressure is coming from now that he can be hit. As for Mariota not showing the best judgement when he senses the pocket breaking down and his subsequent decision making when he feels pressured, well that is again a moot point because in games where he hasn't had much pressure he is outstanding. The games where he has struggled repeatedly, our OL has stunk up the joint. It has not mattered what other QB has played in this offense, they aren't do any better apparently. Why is our running game which you love to argue about so piss poor? All the blame should be directed at the OL, and the coaches, not the RB's or Mariota. Both have shown when given running lanes and enough time to throw in a clean pocket, this offense can be pretty good.
  15. Apparen Apparently even Brady couldn't do what you are implying is so easy when he played the titans a few weeks ago. When a QB has no time to throw it is pretty difficult to run an offense consistently. The onus is on the coaches to figure out a scheme, a personnel grouping that fits that scheme the best, and a set of play calls that play to the strengths of your team and the weaknesses of the other team. Even the Patriots could not make enough half-time adjustments to fix the flawed game-plan and match up issues they had. The QB is not responsible for a lot of these issues. Too many people do not understand the roles QB's play in offenses. They often get too much praise for offensive success, and too much blame for offensive ineptness. Most of the blame falls on the OL's and subsequently the coaches. Give a below average NFL QB a great offensive line and he can win a superbowl. Put an above average NFL QB behind a terrible offensive line and he can't even win 3 games all season. This is not rocket science.
