    Lot of comments saying the D did well because Baltimore only scored 20 points BUT, they did what they wanted to do, control the clock and run the ball.

    Tennessee's D gave up 220 yards rushing and allowed another 60% 3rd down conversion rate. I think Baltimore wanted the low scoring game, not the D "allowed" it.

    Why would we bring back clowney? He was over priced and offered nothing in an improvement to this D. HARD PASS.

    True. But we all knew this wasn’t a playoffs-worthy defense. I take that defensive performance all day if the offense plays anything close to how they did most of the season.

    IMO, the defense misled Vrabel to believe he needed to be more conservative offensively.

    That's kind of my point though. Baltimore knows what our offense is capable of too and just like the recommendation against KC or GB, it's keep the offense off the field.
    In that fashion, they didn't want to score quickly, they wanted to eat clock and keep from relying on LJ's arm. Our D didn't stop any of that.

    Losing Time of Possession battle was a consistent theme throughout the 2020 season for the Titans.

    Still he's 27 years old and we know when healthy he generates a lot of pressure at a minimum and can hit hard. Again, that's only if he comes at a discount.

    Vrabel decided to trust his defense (the worst 3rd down defense amongst all teams in the NFL since 1982!!!!) MORE than he trusted his number 1 ranked offensive to get 2 yards.... Let that sink in.
