    So, while I am sure everyone is ready to move on from Tannehill, this will be another take, based on the idea that we cannot "fix" the tannehill situation, regardless of what we WANT to do, in this off-season.

    The point is, for better or worse, he is still going to be our best option.

    If we are honest, the Titans had more issues on offense than JUST TANNY and Todd Downing.

    Last year, the titans used all of the available resources to revamp the defense and it worked amazingly. However in doing that they neglected the offense.

    Tannehill did not have the same weapons he had last year or the year before.
    The point is is that the Titans need better receivers and tight ends, and probably need to think about replacing Lewan.

    The league caught up to what the Titans were doing, so the titans really need a burner at wide receiver and a big pass-catching tight-end and bring back the defense, as much as possible and Tannehill is going to have to come in way more focused.

    But letting Tannehill go won't solve our situation, it will only make you feel better.

    Not in the playoff game. It was literally just downing and THill.

    They also didn’t neglect the offense. Of note, we don’t have a 2nd round pick (Julio Jones). I will agree it was half-a$$ed attempt at RT and TE. Also spent draft capital on Radunz.

    So overall, I guess I disagree with this post. He had “better” weapons by adding Jones (refer back to all preseason threads on the fan base thoughts).

    I will agree, Titans need some changes upfront and a TE. I also agree we’re stuck with THill and it appears Downing.
    Let’s see what happens.

    TE, OL (RT) and a speed WR need to be addressed... Tannehill needs to get his head out of his ass and live up to that contract
    Lewan is coming back from ACL...this year he needs to improve or yes bye bye

    Going into the season the offense was clearly addressed. Tanny had AJB, Julio,Henry and what we thought was an up and coming TE in Firk. What more did he need on offense to start a season? So it's not like we didn't address the offense.

    But since we're stuck with Zach Mettenbe, oops I mean Ryan Tannehill, we most definitely have to address the OL when it comes to pass protection and that starts by getting rid of Keith Carter. We need to find a way to sign Glowinski from the Colts at all costs.

    If I could address the offense in 3 moves it would be:

    1. Sign Mark Glowinski from the Colts
    2. Draft Jalen Wydermyer or trade down and draft Trey Mcbride
    3. Draft Alec Pierce from Cinncinnati in the 3rd round (he's going to be good)

    You do those things and I think we'll be one of the top teams in the AFC next season.

    Tannehill needs to restructure... then he won't be a ridiculously overpaid backup QB.

    Pierce sounds intriguing.. would certainly catch all passes thrown his way it seems...projected as a 4th but could go in the 2nd if someone falls in love with his athleticism

    Who is Alec Pierce? The Cincinnati WR is a freak of nature and dominant at the catch point

    I think that keeps him here longer for certain.

    I Know everyone wants to move on or find alternatives but he’s going to be the guy next year and coming to grips with that and letting it happen will financially be more reasonable.

    Situation wise, Tannehill had the best situation … 1 seed so all home games, a week of rest, defense balled out with 9 sacks and bengals only scored 1 TD. Running game ran all over bengals, AJ had a game! Downing called bad plays, I do wonder if Thill thought to audible? Especially on the 3rd and 4th down critical late on the game. To get that performance on Defense is something not to waste and he threw it away and sh** the bed. I’d give him a pass if this was his first time but 2 years in a row to end on an interception is ridiculous. Playoffs are to big for him.

    He's the only "QB" this postseason to make the conscious decision to throw 3 ints ... At home.
    This , this IS his celling.
