    Way too early to tell, but I have a feeling that if Willis had hit Burks for that 60 yard touchdown down the middle of the field the conversation would be much different this week. Give Willis time he’s got a lot to learn thankfully the Titans don’t need him to do anything but that right now. Hopefully our coaches are better than they have been in previous years!

    Willis has an arm... when he decides to throw it and there is the problem. The guy holds onto the balls longer than Mariota was before they yanked him. That is what he has to work on, he was way too fearful of making a mistake with the ball. Not that I don't appreciate him protecting the ball especially after Tanny in the playoffs..you just can't stand there like a statue for that long in the NFL trying to make a read/decision.

    Dude needs to ride the bench for a while. Stop trying to press him into service and ruin him, hes just not ready. I wouldn't even be comfortable going into the season with him as the #2 behind Tanny but....

    On that note, Jesus Christ how the **** is Logan Woodside even in the NFL? Are the knees worn out on every pair of pants he owns? He has to go, Mike Glennon is still available and would be a serviceable #2 while Willis learns in the wings.

    Aqutis30 Do you mind - NOT being a Motaur?

    Give me one of those backup Ravens QB's.

    Great breakdown of how Burks was getting open constantly in the game.

    IQ is NOT a problem for him. Very high Wonderlic score and by all accounts smart as a whip. Inexperience and playing at a lower level school with weak coaching ill-prepared him for the NFL. Shoulda stayed at Auburn.

    That was some of my disappointment. WRs were open and he just didnt seem willing to pull the trigger.

    I may be wrong, but I didn't think anyone was saying Willis is ready to start. I think the discussion is whether or not he can be relied upon as the backup this season. Not having to use two spots to back up Tanny would be good since it allows another player on the active list. Hopefully, the backup will not see any meaningful game action all season.

    He’s clearly more deserving of a backup spot than Woodside and coaches rolled with him last year. How Woodside has stuck around amazes me

    I also think he still has it in his head, "Man this offensive line sucks, I gotta be ready to run in a millisecond." - He had to have that ready to go for 2 years at Liberty

    And by all accounts, he's not wrong -- a preseason, make shift offensive line with at least 2-3 dudes probably working for UPS in another month most definitely did not help things.

    I would most definitely like to see him perform with the 1's at LEAST a drive by end of game 3 preseason.

    It's not the time to base Willis on what he does in these games, but base him solely on his potential.

    The guy flat out has the skills to be a really good QB in this league.

    I really liked what I saw in him in his debut. Yeah, some would say he's playing against scrubs, but at the same time his surrounding cast isn't nothing to brag about.

    He won't start any game this year, nor should he. But other than his almost pick 6 on thr first drive, I don't see why anyone on here should be negative about what we saw from him.
