Tannehill Named Titans Starter

13-3 with a home win against the Steelers. Collins was 38 or so. Never expected to be a starter. Just brought in to mentor VY. Throwing it away for him at his age was smart. Live to fight another play and all that. 

 

I agree with this. But this is why it bothered me that 25-year old Mariota was supposed to throw it away at any sign of trouble. That was the beginning of the end for me with him being a franchise QB. If your "star" has to make plays like a 38-year-old mentor you picked the wrong guy.

I've actually been going back and reading the old threads, comedic gold. I'm not going to bog down the board right now but it will be done. So many people said they were done watching the Titans after the Mularkey extension was announced because of the offense. Yikes

 

I will go ahead as ask this one. You kept squawking that oldschool had me nailed concerning my "Mariota agenda". What exactly was my "agenda"? I'm asking seriously. 

 

BTW, soxcat might be right, I might actually be some kind of prophet. 

I don’t remember that.  Not doubting you.

No offense but I don’t think many have changed their tune...

The lesson is don't buy into hyperbole. No coach should be able to ruin a person/QB. Especially one that directly helped steady a franchise. The stance never made sense.

 

In the end it seems like the GM wasn't sure if the passing issues were on the coach or QB. So he made a change to find out. Sad but true. That said, this is always the way it goes in the NFL. The coach is blamed before the QB.

I don't believe this at all. 

 

Robinson wanted his own guy, period. He may have used the QB's development as a reason to get his own guy. 

 

The scarier issue is the GM didn't know it was the QB heading into this season and that's frightening. 

 

I said in the Mularkey fired thread I wouldn't have changed my staff either if I knew that wasn't the problem, which Mularkey knew. Mularkey knew more about offense than all these dumb dumbs

I've noticed a severe case of amnesia. 

 

What was my "Mariota agenda"?

Not a bad perspective either. I don't know enough to argue about it either way.

Actually the question for the GM is can this guy win more than a wild card playoff game. His determination and most of the board was that he couldn’t and it was better to roll with someone else.

Not sure. Do you need to explain your Fisher as good coach for the Rams take?

Didn't he know? he went and got a "backup" and possibly the only realistically available "backup" who'd have a good chance at competing for the starting role. It just didn't seem like the competition was approved to happen by someone else. JR doesn't set the depth chart right?

Don’t forget that Oilerman was a huge Mularkey guy and continues to be passive aggressive in his criticism of JRob

I followed it very closely because I was already 100% sure the problems with the offense were Mariota and I wanted to hear what Robinson said. He never once said a word about Mariota's development or that having anything to do with Mularkey getting fired. He said the talent was not maximized and the plan was to do better than  the divisional round.

 

In hindsight Mularkey knew offense way better than this current group, getting rid of Matthews(Robinson gave him an extension!), MM and Henry

He didn't get RT to compete for the starting role, that was made clear

Huge Mularkey guy? That's a stretch. I def thought he did a very good job and was unfairly blamed for a bad QB
