Hey OMan, I think I might have concussed the board tard. The Titans are a storied franchise now. He must be choking on a rib bone right?

He isn't ruining things at all.

 

I just outlined how well Mariota played in '16 when we had a good line,solid run game and a dependable crew of wideouts catching passes. We were number one in red zone. Had the number one run game. Had a winning season and Mariota threw for 26TD, 9INT along with 3500 yards.

 

Fix the line and run game along with bringing in a solid vet WR we will see how well things change for the better.

 

Make the necessary changes and Mariota and the offense will thrive like they did in '16.

I did get frustrated at Mariota recently during a loss but once i sat down and went through everything and watched more closely thats when i realized the man needs help in different areas of the offense and once he gets that help in those areas things will get better.

Let Jones walk and cut ties with Kline

 

you could move Kelly to RG and sign Pamphile to backup OT and draft an interior OL in 4-5

 

Sign Mitch Morse at C and retain Spain. That alone improves the OL even if Kline is kept. 

 

Then offer John Brown or Chris Conley a nice deal. Prefer Brown 10:10 times but Conley is a very good fallback and would be our 2 over Sharpe. He’s a good WR and fits this offense. 

 

Brown however is the exact type of WR we need. Evidenced by the Cook rumors and the failed Taylor experiment and the fact we have/had guys like Camp, Williams and Batson(Who I think can be a solid WR) on our roster. 

 

John Brown is the perfect WR for Mariota. Amazing hands. Amazing routes. Impeccable speed. Dangerous. 

 

Davis, Brown, Taylor, Batson... that’s a lot of speed. 

 

Top it off with a TE like Maxx Williams, Tyler Eifert(who will be cheap r/t injuries) or Kroft or Paulsen and we have a blocking TE next to Conk to open the lanes. 

 

At that point you entertain trade offers for really good RBs... Carlos Hyde should’ve been a top FA priority. He won’t this year. Jax is keeping him. 

 

So so look at Bryce Loce in the first. We could trade back a few spots and pick up a 3rd and take Love in round 1 and have an elite ground game. He brings so much potential and dynamic ability to the offense in protection, running and receiving. He’s a touchdown machine and a natural runner. Fast as fuck too. He fits this offense to a “T” and reminds me of Devontae Freeman in a way. Perfect back for this offense. Love and Lewis in the same backfield spells trouble. 

 

After that... with how loaded this draft is on defense you could stand pat with 1 second and two thirds and take 3 defensive playmakers or you could make a major move to jump back into 1 for a player who slipped that shouldn’t have. 

 

Look ok for us to make another push at Suh this offseason. LA won’t be able to resign him and he may want to settle here for a few years. 

 

Adding Suh in FA to this front 7 and retaining Wesley and drafting a few LB’s and a CB would do a world of wonders. 

 

Grab OL and WRs after that.

What that tells me is overall the Titans have been pretty good over the long haul. They have 9 winning seasons,7 postseason appearances,6 postseason wins,3 division titles,2 years NFL best record,2 AFC title app & 1 Super Bowl app.

Almost all of that was all when Fisher was coaching the team. What have they done in the 8 years since then? A lot less than people think.

*Mariota converts 11 of 14 3rd down plays 78.6 % success,best % rate of '18 and last three seasons of all NFL teams and beats Dallas 28-14  completing 21 of 29,a 72% completion rate, 240 yards,2 TD/0INT, and a 119.9 QB rating AND ran 5 times on 3rd down & converted 5 first downs, including one TD. Just 6th time a QB converted at least five 3rd downs running since 1991 season 27 years ago.....

 

*Has a 70.3% comp. rate passing and is 4th best in NFL after Brees,Cousins and Ryan

 

 

 

Some of what Mariota did his first three seasons.......

 

 

*Led biggest road playoff comeback in NFL history for QB at Kansas City coming back from 18 down winning 22-21

 

*Led Titans to better record each of his first three years and made postseason

 

*Led the NFL with four 4th quarter comebacks and five game winning drives the most of any NFL QB in 2017

 

*Has 9 games with 100 passer rating/multiple TD’s only Dan Marino,Russell Wilson and Kurt Warner had more in their first 2 seasons at QB.
 

*As of Thanksgiving Day 2016, Mariota is the first QB in modern NFL history with six four-TD performances in his first 22 career games. No other QB had more to start a career.

 

*First player NFL history with 250+ pass yds, 100+ rush yds & 3 TD passes

 

*Four games with three or more TDs tied Peyton Manning (1998) as the most ever by a rookie QB.

 

*Became the first rookie quarterback in NFL history to have two games with four touchdowns and no interceptions

 

*Mariota's very first game gained a perfect passer rating of 158.3, making him the first quarterback in NFL history to attain a perfect passer rating in his first regular season game. Mariota became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw four touchdown passes in the first half of his NFL debut. He is also the youngest quarterback to reach the perfect passer rating in his first game as well.

 

*Led the Titans to number one ranking in red zone for 2016 season

 

*Had 40TD and 0INT in red zone in the first 3 years of his career.

 

 

 

 

Wow, you cant tell me after looking at all he has accomplished his first 3 years and then reading what he has done over the last month then you suddenly realize MARIOTA IS NOT THE PROBLEM.

Its the things Mariota has done over the past few weeks that got me realizing more than ever that he is a valuable player and good QB and that the weakness and mistakes of the offensive line as well as the running backs were not his fault and were making him look bad.....

 

 

Actually the past few weeks in spite of poor line play/no run game Mariota set some new team/NFL records including.....

 

Beating the Patriots 34-10 their worst Nov/Dec loss in 18 years had 2TD,0 INT and a 125.0 QB rating and became the third QB in NFL history with at least 200 passing yards (228), 20 rushing yards (21),and 20 receiving yards (21) in a single game. In Dallas converting 11 of 14 3rd down plays 78.6 % success rate the best any NFL QB/team has done not only this year but the last 3 years THEN not long after this set a record completing 22 of 23 passes. 96% of his passes,300 yds,147.7 QB rating vs Texans

 

Say what you will, He may not be Joe Montana but very few are. Bottom line is the guy is a franchise QB and could be really good if we get the line revamped and the running game fixed.

He's injured too much!

He doesn't make those around him better!

He doesn't win enough games.

He doesn't pass the ball better!

He doesn't move in the pocket better!

He's too passive!

He's not a great leader!
