    AussieTitanFan08 got a reaction from freakingeek in Vrabel on Mariota in today's MMQB Column   
    Nothing earth shattering here, Vrabel praising Mariota for his dedication this offseason while also seeming very comfortable with Mariota's contract status.
     
    RK: Marcus Mariota, along with Jameis Winston, is the first quarterback since the new CBA to play on a fifth-year option. What does he have to show you to earn an extension? (Mariota is 27-28 as a starter, with an 89.4 passer rating and a 69:42 TD:INT ratio.)
     
    MIKE VRABEL: “I think everybody has a contract, and we’re very aware of players who are in the last year of the deal. Marcus is obviously one of those. When you make a commitment to the QB you want to make sure that this is going to be your guy for the next 7-10 years when you look at the percentage of the cap quarterbacks are driving. Nobody is more proud of what Marcus has done in the offseason than me. He’s come back stronger, bigger, with greater understanding of what we're doing offensively, being able to communicate it to players the field. I don’t look at the lack of a long-term extension as a negative, though that’s what people try to make it. I know Marcus’s demeanor and that won’t change whether he’s on a 10-year contract or its up after the season. He’s that type of person. So I know it'll work because of how he is.”

    AussieTitanFan08 got a reaction from GOAT9 in Stick to Football AFC South Preview   
    You would hope this team is better than 5-11 but it isn't an unreasonable prediction given how poor/inconsistent the offense has been the last 2yrs, also the record away from Nissan Stadium has been extremely poor the last couple of years.
     
    Until the team physically shows they can be more productive/consistent offensively and better away from Nissan Stadium they are going to struggle to consistently make the playoffs.
     
    There is certainly a path for them to be a 9-10 win team this year, that is if the OL comes together and the run game is a solid foundation for the offense.
     
    If the OL/Run Game struggle this could be a very long season.

    No because they have proven QBs. 5-11 is absolutely possible. I think they'll be around .500 again.

    Unlikely. The QB schedule is brutal. The Titans have a good defense but it's not elite. They are over valued due to the bad QB crop they played against last year.

    Mike Herndon sums up well exactly what we are up against this year to make the playoffs, he doesn't even include Mayfield/Newton in that QB list.
     
    The SOS will obviously fluctuate as the season progresses and injuries occur and teams rise and fall, but based on the 2018 final rankings we start 2019 with the 9th hardest SOS.
     
    Not saying this team can't make the playoffs but we face a significantly tougher task schedule wise than the last 3 yrs.

    Pretty reasonable preview of the AFC South here, best thing there isn't the usual absolutely ridiculous hot takes that we are currently seeing from a lot of the National NFL media.
     
    The two main bits I didn't agree with was their disrespect for Corey Davis and their over the top praise for DeShaun Watson. 
     
    From purely a Titans perspective they are very positive regarding the defense, they thought that Evans/Landry could make a big leap this year, then they addressed the obvious question marks surrounding Mariota and the offense.

    They got extrememely lucky in a ton of games just like the Jags the year before. 8 of their wins were 1 score wins. It’s hard to get the ball to bounce your way like that 2 years in a row.

    He is one week short of 5 months post ACL reconstructive surgery, this clip just another confirmation that his recovery is on track, good to see he has progressed from the anti gravity treadmill.
     
    Still at least 3 months away from a possible return but its still great to see his progress.

    AussieTitanFan08 got a reaction from Tex in a Can in I love the media   
    Some less than positive views on the Titans from Mike Tannenbaum and Victor Cruz on ESPN NFL Live today,  Tannenbaum gave the Titans a 2% chance of winning the AFC South and Cruz a 5% chance.
     
    Had a good chuckle when Tannenbaum came up with the Jags having an 80% chance of winning the AFC South and also the AFC Representative in the SB.
     
    Must say ESPN's NFL coverage continues to plummet to new depths its basically unwatchable now, everything has to either be a hot take or joke, absolutely no informative football discussion.

    AussieTitanFan08 got a reaction from NashvilleNinja in Corey Davis   
    The National NFL media narrative that Corey Davis has been a bust just because he hasn't put up huge fantasy football numbers drives me nuts, put Davis in the Saints/Rams/Falcons/Colts offenses he would be an absolute beast.
