  1. https://www.pff.com/news/nfl-derrick-henry-ryan-tannehill-titans-future-2020 Good stuff.....
  2. And there you have it. I mean... there's plenty of ignorance in that because there are plenty of people here who care about the Titans and just because that's Burr's shtick, but there are some kernels of truth there too. Look at all the Johnny Come Lately microwave popcorn fans popping up in the last couple weeks. How many of them are saying "same ol Titans" today and getting back to their regularly scheduled bullshit? When the Titans started this run they were still sitting on their hands, even after the KC game we won. I have to wonder if people even knew KC was a juggernaut/Super Bowl contending type of team. They were probably too busy getting their hopes up for the fuckin Predators. I saw some Vols fans on twitter offering up passe, lukewarm attention to the Titans during the Titans and Chiefs game but when the 49ers and Packers game was on they were losing their shit one way or another. Wtf? You're such a big time home town team guy when it comes to the Vols but you give more of a shit about some fucking northern team or some west coast team? Why don't you just jump on the Chiefs bandwagon, you fucking amateur hour sports fans. And if you're planning on coming in here and posting about how the Titans have sucked for so long and blah blah... fuck off. Chiefs fans haven't seen a Super Bowl in FIFTY years. There have been countless people who were born, lived somewhat full lives, and then died in that span. Did you see that crowd yesterday at Arrowhead? Did you HEAR that crowd? They've been spending money on their team just as much as you and they've endured plenty of shitty years... and Mahomes has only really been there since last year, since he was on the bench his rookie year. Or look at Browns fans. There's no way I can see Nissan stadium not looking like the Liberty Bowl Memorial in Memphis back in 1997 if the Titans had been as bad as the Browns have been for years and years. Hell, it's been kinda sorta looking like that anyway lately. So yeah... maybe people in Nashville, if they really consider themselves Titans fans, should take what Burr has to say to heart even if there is some ignorance there. Show the fuck up to home games next year for a change and stop giving/selling them to out of town fucks looking for an extra home game. Put your money where you mouth is and Titan the fuck up.
  3. No, this is not a bash on Tannehill thread. Dude was money for most of the games he played in, at least for what we asked of him. And no, this is not a call to let him go to free agency. He's earned a nice pay day. But let's be honest, if Henry isn't Henry this offense doesn't hum the way it did down the stretch. Tanny is 31 years old and has had his fair share of injuries. He's not that franchise dude. He's the guy who eventually gets supplanted by the franchise dude. Tannehill is the present, but he's not the future. And honestly, if he wants to back up an army of Brinks trucks to the Federal Reserve we might be better served to at least pause before agreeing to hang that albatross around the team's neck.
  4. GTFO Dont care how nice he was he sucked at football.
  5. Enjoy it while it lasts. Because he is capable of playing well, for stretches. But that’s all they are - a stretch. I watched him play for the better part of a decade in Miami, and what he is doing for the Titans RIGHT NOW, he did the EXACT SAME in Miami. He has these stretches of good play, before he falls apart. These stretches of good play is why MIami gave him a contract extension before realizing it will never amount to anything more than a stretch here and there. Don’t believe me? Good. See for yourself... Examples 2013: Went on a 5-2 stretch before crapping the bed and losing 2 straight games to keep them out of the playoffs. 2014: Went on a 4-1 stretch (sound familiar?) before losing 4 of the last 6 and playing like crap. 2016: Went on a 7-1 stretch!!!! 2018: Went 3-0 to start the season before shi**ing the bed. I think he also went on a 4-2 (or 5-2?) stretch in 2012 too, before crapping the bed. THIS. IS. WHAT. HE. DOES. The original starting point of this train of thought can be found here:
  6. Ravens think it will be hard to keep him. I prefer Clowney but Judon would be a great consolation prize. They should have go e hard after Zadarius Smith last offseason. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.baltimoresun.com/sports/ravens/bs-sp-ravens-harbaugh-judon-20200117-rsiljx5aafcdhkkgjztcvpxzei-story.html%3foutputType=amp
  7. Interesting.. David Long was #1 rated defensive player - Simmons was last 😤 Offensive Defensive
  8. Fair or not, JRob's rebuilding project has been in the easy button phase. He inherited a pretty awful roster aside from a handful of guys, had tons of cap space and draft picks, and literally was in add mode without the worry of losing internal talent to FA. Even the QB situation with Mariota was inherited although the 5th year option and unnecessary coddling were on his watch..... It's a whole new ball game now and this is where JRob proves his mettle. His decisions on the unrestricted free agents will define the core of the team. Likewise, the expectations to build on as opposed to maintain in FA and the Draft are all in his hands. Things like extensions or tags for Tannehill, Henry, Conklin, Ryan or going the alternate path like Brady, letting Henry walk and replace with a stable of backs, etc. Just like with the team, great gets thrown around too much. Now will tell just how good Robinson really is.
  9. Homer takes aside, this is a pretty good layout at least from the salary cap and list of free agents..... I'd be surprised if the Titans retain all of the players he advocates for not to mention the FA wish list. He didn't go full Kyle but still...... https://www.musiccitymiracles.com/2020/1/21/21073391/previewing-a-2020-offseason-that-will-be-filled-with-critical-decisions-for-titans-gm-jon-robinson
  10. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/officials-may-alerted-penalty-tony-143433362.html add to list of more terrible calls that went against us. Not blaming refs, just pointing out how these guys decide games. I saw plenty of penalties against Ravens, Pats we got lucky on.
  11. I was surprised yesterday that the Titans lost the LOS battle on offense, something that had not happened in a while. Play calling aside, I do wonder if the team was simply spent based on having to play 3 straight road games that were physical games. It just reinforces how important the bye can be, especially to a team built to play the style the Titans do.
  12. Going to be interesting to see whether JRob can agree a long term extension with Henry this offseason, there is no doubt he has become part of the fabric of this franchise now, he might be the most marketable face of this current team, he is also worshiped by the fan base. There is also little doubt his Agents are going to be pushing for top of the market RB money. At what price point does he price himself out of a long term contract at the Titans.
  13. Here he sounds like a player who wants to return but knows he won't be back.
  14. The Titans were undoubtedly too run heavy on first down in general for the season, considering how the success rate was on 1st down passing. Saying that, there definitely is some confirmation and hindsight bias going on in terms of the KC first half. The Titans ran 17 first down plays in the first half. 13 runs and 4 passes so a 76/24 run to pass split. Well, 11 of the 13 runs (86%) were in fact successful (defined by gaining 40% of the yards needed for a 1st down). Of the 4 passes, 2 were successful (50%) and 2 were not. RT hit the 22-yarder to Jonnu and a 9 yarder to Pruitt. He missed Firkser deep and then had a pass to Davis that lost 2 yards. The first 3 drives were fine as they resulted in 3 scores/17 points. On the one drive before the half that failed, they got stuffed on 1st down for one yard - Jones won against Saffold and Jones. The bigger issue was the 2nd down....... On 2nd down, the Titans ran it 4 times and passed it 8 times (33/67 run/pass split). 5 of the 8 passes were successful - 63%. Only 1 of the 4 runs on 2nd down was succesful and it was the Pineapple Tebow run. On the infamous drive where they went 3 and out - 2nd and 9 where Henry was tackled for no gain as Suggs came from the backside beating Lewan and made the stop. 3rd and long and the advantage swings to the KC pass rush. The screen itself was not a bad call but they were ready for it.
  15. Vrabel is more offensively conservative than Fisher or Mularkey. Almost comically so. The Titans run the ball and run the ball on 1st down at a level you just don't see in the NFL. Warren Sharpe predicted the Titans would flop because of it. He was wrong about them flopping but he wasn't wrong overall, but more about that in a second. There were times this season when I knew it was a losing formula but they overcame it or won doing it. Today the way the KC defense was playing I really think the Titans could have taken control by going for the kill and staying aggressive. They would have at least made it a better game. Here is what should scare us. This conservative strategy got the Titans to the AFC title game because the redzone offense, running game and efficiency were at an unsustainable historic level. Not only is it impossible to duplicate this but Vrabel seems to think it's the way to go. Th running game and redzone offense will likely not be this great again. If Vrabel doesn't adapt then they'll never advance this far again.
  16. Just read Romeo Crennel is out as DC of Texans.... Since Pees has retired we need a new DC.... Any thoughts?

  18. I've already said I'd pay Henry at this point and I'm not going to bash Robinson when he does. He's turned into a beast, he's the best runner in the league etc...... But honestly, we all know if Robinson was going to do the correct thing here it would be to not pay Henry. We've seen this a million times. It will most likely be a poor move.
  19. @tgo your turn to tell us our options
  20. https://www.titansonline.com/news/facing-uncertain-future-qb-marcus-mariota-thankful-for-opportunity-with-titans?fbclid=IwAR1e5OFCY39sC9je4OuI5yNYtGnvOgk4w8TvU_PRxJ_s4FLwUnJOCIJBj70 Get in here, Bud! Roll out the same ol' same ol' we've heard for at least a year from you. Let's see how long we can keep this train (Marcus threads) rolling!
  21. I was thinking about the offseason and it reminded me of this tweet thread I saw: Rambling #Titans takes: Sign Tannehill & Henry (no-brainer); structure heavy early & those positions still need addressed. Not certain how early but RB is short shelf life & Henry is a 2 down guy, while Tannehill isn't young & this year's level of play isn't likely sustainable. Both are important pieces & foundation of success. I expect Tannehill to keep doing well. But production was otherworldly. It'll settle back a bit. Get a young QB developing. Marcus is gone. Who is backup? Who is future? No telling when future is needed. 1 yr? 5? Get it ready. Pass rush is actively bad. Not sure how much is scheme but it's a limiting factor. Landry needs to take another step and then they need some other high performers. This position exemplifies much of roster conundrum - a lot of roster-worthy talent, not a lot of high end. I'm fine moving on from Conklin. He's not actively bad. Seems like he rebounded this year. But I don't think he's great, either. All-Pro? Lol. RT position is interesting because it seems a hole in NFL. There's risk moving on but he's not worth big $, imo, & will want it, I think. Corey Davis is longer term ?. He has plenty of value but does seem to have a missing link somewhere that prevents him from truly playing at capacity. AJ Brown really highlighted this for me. I don't know what $ value is but he'd leave a real hole. Tajae #2? Please, no. LBer is maybe ok but keep adding pieces and, again, need higher end rushers. Secondary as a whole baffles me. They talk a lot. People think they're really good. I love the individual pieces. But teams with good QB+WR combos seemed to move at will on them this yr & then Mahomes & co again just cruised. And I "get" that today's NFL promotes the passing game. I "get" that the Chiefs score on everyone and good opponent QB+WR combos are good for a reason. But, here's the thing: If secondary is our claimed strength, I'd think you want better pass defense against good QB+WRs, too. Strength to strength and ours tends to get bossed? That's a problematic strength. Maybe Adoree will become more lockdown. Maybe Malcom healthy will help. Resign Logan for sure. I think he maintain his level of play. Adoree attracted trade interest, btw, & he's a longer term ?. I'm willing to allow for any explanation. I'm not pulling All-22 & breaking down film to find answers. I don't know I'm even capable but I also don't care to. The reality is that if it's scheme or if it's talent or if it's just great WR+QB combos ... adapt or die. NE receivers were a major issue for them and Edelman wasn't healthy. Baltimore receivers aren't great, are young or are TEs. We schemed those offenses to need many consecutive good plays and shut it down when they couldn't. KC could and did. Seemingly every play. You want to win a SB? You'll run into such offenses. You'll have to be incredibly fortuitous & win on the margins at a high rate if you can't stop the other team from just walking up / down the field. Offense needs to score 30+ or you need clutch INTs like almost won w/ Houston. That's ultimately not reliable. Not sure what the solution is. Maybe there's not one. Maybe preventing big plays & waiting to pounce on opponent mistakes is our MO. Maybe it's a good option, even. It got us pretty far. But it's brutal to watch. Maybe I'm the issue. Dunno. I've been known to be wrong. I'm aware. Hopefully AJ Brown will take a step. Hopefully Simmons does as well, Corey unleashes, Landry continues adding moves & wreaks more consistent havoc. Hopefully Adoree becomes lock down. Hopefully older guys stay good. Hopefully it all progresses & Titans return as a 2020 threat. There's no guarantee of it, though, and I think one of the biggest issues is that they need truly high end guys ... somewhere. True difference makers. This team is, imo, largely good enough talent playing hard, smart & together in organized, coherent schemes that put them in good position. Need some game breakers. I also do just have a philosophy preference for a passing first, aggressive, more-modern offense. Arthur did really, really well in his first year. Hard to believe, almost. They produced points & yards & wins as it came together. But I just long for ... different. Since he's coming back, which I'm 100% on board with, I just hope he adds more to the toolkit. This is an amorphous desire with undefined goals. Maybe I just want flash and pizzazz. I don't know. Again, maybe I'm the issue. I'm sure I missed some off-season keys, have typos and expressed dumb opinions. Whatever. I'm good with it. Needed to decompress.
  22. -Losing to Andy Reid in the Conference Championship doesn't make Vrabel a shitty coach. -Henry and Tannehill will be back and they will be fine. -The team is not in a bad position, its in the best position its been in since the George/McNair Era. -The Offensive philosophy is not a problem. -The Window is wide open, this team is ready to take off, and a return to dominance is likely. - The team doesn't have a lot of needs or holes. Stop over reacting. Everything's good.
