Preseason Week 1: Titans @ Eagles Game Thread

Recommended Posts

After the Bills game last year I had given up on Marcus becoming a long term solution.

 

Not much since then has changed my mind.

 

If we're lucky and as a franchise this team generally isn't, but maybe we luck out and Tannehill gives us a Chris Chandler type of run ala when he left Houston and went to Atlanta.

It doesn't even require analysis. That's why it's easier to just agree and move on to something else. Not every throw was as bad as that one but he definitely looked rough. Let's see how he responds next week with more snaps.

The problem is is literally every pass he throws is microanalyzed.  And it’s gonna be worse this year than at any other time.

 

I don’t get why he just won’t put more zip on passes.  He put plenty on the 4th down pass that wasn’t caught.  But if he just stopped floating passes and letting them rip he’d be better.  It’s like he doesn’t want the receivers to have to make difficult catches.  And it negatively affects him.

Conklin must have learned a lot over the offseason....

Much like Davis with the hammy the year before Conklin shouldn't have come back until week 6 or 8.

 

They we're not ready at all and only made their situations worse.

It is funny how all the guys pimping Tannehill are now tempering their positions in case he gets in and stinks it up. 

Who said he was going to light it up. It's funny how guys pimping Mariota try to make like the Tannehill side expects a pro bowl season.

It's because he's subpar in the pocket and has bad mechanics, he's ultra conservative too, bad combination.

I'm enjoying watching the people who used to be denying every stat and piece of film, are now getting frustrated with people who are denying every stat and piece of film.

 

Let's see what happens. But this is a hard lesson on how a QB is supposed to elevate the talent and coaching and not expect vice versa.

 

If a RB, WR, TE, OL get hurt a team can still dominate ... if the starting QB goes down 99% of the time all is lost ... there's a reason for that.

You can't even get the yards on the opening drive right guy.  No one compared expectations either.  The fact is, the ball was catchable and Jennings should have caught it.  He didn't.  Blowing up because Mariota didn't throw the perfect ball in a preseason game on a handful of snaps when overall he looked decent is just asinine and pointless.  By all means, though, carry on.    

They got the ball on the Eagles 49 yard line and ended up on the Eagles 23.  In 10 plays.  They netted 26 yards.  Go back to math class dumbass.

 

As for the Jennings play, it speaks for itself.  Only a homer would defend the throw.  It was inaccurate despite him being wide open.  You think the play design calls for that ball placement???

 

If you think the expecations for any of the receivers mentioned comes anywhere close to the expectations for Mariota or Tannehill for that matter, that's simply delusional.  I expect the QB to execute that play and MM didn't.

So is the pass to Jennings the annual pass from the first preseason game that gets analyzed to death for pages and pages for a week?

It shouldn't.  It only is because one of the homers wants to put the onus on the KR/5th WR rather than what should be an easy completion if executed properly by the starting QB.

Yep. Sounds like a shot in the dark to paint an extreme picture. It doesn't exist.

 

Tannehill is a stopgap QB. Everyone knows it.

If you have to microanalyze every throw it means the QB isn't throwing enough good ones to ignore it.

 

Just like if Delanie Walker drops a pass ... everyone has seen him do it ... few remember them. Because he's so damn reliable overall.
