    All 3 phases of the team (4 if you include coaching) were a dumpster fire yesterday but what annoys me the most is the OL.

    Power of hindsight but imagine where we'd be if we just kept Jack Conklin. The decision to move on from Conk has really damaged us and snowballed as we wasted last year's 1st rounder on Panda. Dillon Radunz isn't even active on gameday yet (2nd rounder who is also struggling) and we signed spare parts to play at RT who seem inferior to Dennis Kelly so far... who we cut.

    Infuriating. RT and K are our achilles heel it seems.

    I would hope Lewan will bounce back and it's too early to hit the panic button but no denying it was a train-wreck yesterday. Only consolation is Tannehill didn't get injured! Fingers crossed things gel more smoothly next time as we shake off the rust.. Roll on week 2

    Oline was dreadful, but I didn't see much help being giving by the OC. But after sack 3 you had to start double teaming Jones regardless where he lines up. Our TEs weren't catching much yesterdays. This seemed very much like a pre season game in how we executed and called it. Cards were all over our play calling in the 1stt qtr. We should've came out slinging to throw them off guard

    Letting Conklin go was a bad move at the time. We spent a chit ton of draft capital on him, then let him walk.

    I think the O-line needed some time during the preseason. It was truly awful. I'm embarrassed to be a Titans fan today.

    Why did we let the undertaker Kelly go? He was not expensive did a nice job? Was better than what was out there yesterday. Can play left tackle too

    We have spent a chit load of draft capital since Conklin left to replace him and still haven't. That alone justifies paying what Cleveland paid him to keep him. What if we drafted a WR to replace Davis instead of drafting Wilson (Chase Claypool would have been nice or almost anyone besides Wilson) and it also gives us flexibility with the Radunz pick this year if we wanted to go in a different direction.

    As for the OL the overall grade was probably pretty low but it was basically a one man wrecking crew that did us in. Our sleepy OC should have figured it out before the 1st qt was over. Quessenberry didn't seem to do a horrible job in pass protection on the right side like Lamm and Lewan did. Marcus Golden had one tackle and no sacks.

    Lewan was a bum in 2020 prior to his injury, he's washed.

    Rumors are we had an offer to him for more money and he chose to leave.

    That reads like damage control to me. But I think we all recognize it does us no good to revisit EXCEPT JRob can not continue to make OL mistakes and expect it to not effect the future success of the team. He’s made several in particular with early round picks. Radunz too early to tell so I’m hoping he does improve.
