Someone else posted a rebuttal and I can see both sides to this. I don't like giving a season away, and they probably felt Tanne was no better. Look how cheap they got him. So making the move to bench your franchise QB is huge, and not one you can undo. The real problem was Lewan missing 4 games. If they pulled him during that span people that love him would say it was unfair not for him to have his best chance. Another factor is ANOTHER OC in Smith. Too many changes. Fortunately he played so horrible it became obvious to anyone except a homer how bad he has regressed. Just another typical Titan mess.
