The idea Dupree would be fine after tearing his ACL in December always made zero sense to me.

1-Bud Dupree, our huge FA get, exploded for a half a tackle. Check my history, I knew this was a terrible signing   2-Denico Autry-also a half a tackle.    3-Jack Rabbit-destroyed

Is this a Rasskass thread?

I wasn't a fan of a lot of JRob's offseason moves but come on a lot of these guys had really good seasons for other teams last year (Dupree/Jenkins/Autry and Jones before he got injured) its not JRob's job to get them ready to play this year that is on the training staff and the coaching staff.

They ran the garbage mush rush bullshit. Gauging Dupree and Autry’s stats is worthless in this situation. 

This is very true. To be fair no where to go but up for all of the players.

Well it certainly is fair to throw some shade...

our 1st, 2nd, 3rd round picks of 2020 draft didn't play in 2020 (3rd round pick still hasn't played  in 2021).

 

Our 2021 1st rounder was inactive on Sunday, or 2nd rounder road the bench...neither expected to contribute much this year.

 

This IS a problem

@Face This thread is premature but I'll play since I didn't like the offseason that much either.

 

Dupree - I hated this signing and think his ceiling might be Orakpo which is not okay considering the money he got. At first glance he didn't transform the pass rush or dictate the run game which is where he will most likely impact the Titans D. That being said he did get some pressure later in the game and played with a ton of energy which has been sorely lacking on the defense of late. Its too early to tell whether you and I are right about Dupree but Sunday was not a good start for him.

 

Autry - I liked this signing but found it hysterical so many thought he would have a massive impact. Guys like Autry contribute to the whole so its hard to know if he did that against the cards but considering the Front 7 had another lackluster performance, its hard to claim he made an impact. Autry will be judged by how the stars around him play this year.

 

Jenkins - I hated this signing and have no idea why anyone thinks he's an improvement over Butler. Jenkins is a battler but he also has been burned his whole career. I'm not going to ding him for not being able to cover Hopkins as no one can but I fully expect him to get targeted all year and give up plays especially with the Titans piss poor pass rush.

 

Farley - Come on. This was a ballsy pick that could be a home run like Simmons. I loved this pick and have no expectations he will contribute this year; neither should you.

 

Radunz - I didn't like the pick at first but some think he may be able to play LT in the future so I softened my stance. Its not good that he couldn't beat out the likes of Lamm and Dingleberry though. Sometimes it takes OL a few years to reach their potential so we may not know what Radunz is for awhile and thats okay. RT is a pain point so fans naturally want to bitch about the pick since he didn't start day one.

 

Julio - Guy should be fine. It was a great move to trade for him. Unless he falls off a cliff or gets bit by the injury bug, he'll be an asset. That being said, he was terrible against the Cards and needs to be much better moving forward.

 

I'll throw in one more...

 

Molden- This guy looked every bit the late round draft pick and his athleticism could be an issue moving forward. I know many assumed he would be the answer at NB but I was more hesitant to crown him so early in the process. Hopefully it was just first game jitters but it wasn't good. I don't want to overreact here but he looked overmatched athletically. Hopefully thats not a sign of whats to come.
