Titans nickel defense + Derrick Henry

You're on the Mariota needs to be replaced bandwagon, are you not? At least you were

 

I didn’t make the thread. If you think Mariota is as bad as you’ve said then there was no need to include him inside of us being a dangerous team.

You mean like Robinson hasn't included him on the 2020 roster and beyond?

According to you if MM was as bad as you continue to say then I don’t understand the reasoning of your post. You should have said Tannehill makes a contender.

 But as to do with your post he’s our best bet, and he does have a clutch factor to him. 

 

He's the reason they missed the playoffs in 2016 despite the great 8 game stretch with all the other games he gave away with pick 6s and back breaking turnovers. In 2017 they should have easily won the division but against SF, the Cards and Rams he absolutely crumbled late in those games with the ball in his hand late and last year in the season finale he missed the game with the playoffs on the line. 

 

This clutch nonsense is so overblown it's laughable. People said the same thing about VY and Tebow

 Correction:   The Titans' defense lost that Niners game....not Mariota.   After the Niners took the lead with 3 minutes remaining, the Titans' offense drove the field and kicked a go-ahead FG in the final minute.  The defense responded by giving up 45-50 yards in three plays....the Niners kicked the game-winning FG as time expired.

 

The games against the Cardinals and Rams were there for the taking and Mariota didn't get it done.

I'll meet you half way on SF, they could have burned more clock and kicked the game winner as time expired. I was hard on Mularkey for the misuse of the clock but the starting QB should be controlling that as well, possibly more. The defense should have never been on the field

He does quite well against top offenses. You can’t argue against it.

The problem is their defense is undersized(susceptible to the run) and their passing game is bad when forced to pass. If the Titans are not playing with a lead they are a completely different team. 

You have NO idea how THIS YEARS team will play from behind late. This is just your jaded opinion of the QB and it's a shitty attempt number 4,268,124 to demean Mariota.

Titans could be a tough draw even with average play from Mariota.  It'd be nicer if he were a great QB, but so long as he avoids bad plays this team can do damage.

 

Sure Mariota won't make lots of big plays, but trying to out score him means throwing at our best defensive players.  And playing ball control lets Henry -- our best player on offense -- stay in the game.  The formula travels well.  And it wins in bad weather.

 

Winning the SB means finding value and doing things other teams won't do -- like getting an offensive MVP style RB in the second round.  Or a defensive MVP in the first.  Simmons making a difference is what will put this season over the top.

They are built to win a specific way - Play good defense and special teams, run the ball, and be efficient in the passing game.  When they are clicking, that formula is proven to win games.  Sunday, without going into a ton of specifics, the end result is that they did all three things. 

 

Week 1 is hard to make a definitive judgment though.  It was a close game until the 4th quarter, when turnovers and cashing in on them with TD's turned it into a blowout.  In a situation where they have to depend on the passing game to come through in the clutch, time will tell.
