Agree. I loved me some Locker. ****ing Muhammad Wilkerson pretty much ruined his career.
Aside from the additional names that were also within a game of winning it, that’s 3 of the last 10. While yes, the smaller margin, it’s not as unlikely as some like to believe.
I’d also argue, that defense is a requirement. The titans have one of the top defenses. If a scrub QB doesnt turn the ball over, games like today are W’s, just like previous games against 4 teams still remaining this season, and a SB can be had.
Edit: I didn’t really talk about how Tom Brady should be in a category all his own. I don’t give a crap what other elite QB there is, if he’s not named Tom Brady, he is no more likely to win than some scrub QB. That same 10 year period has Pat Mahomes (1), Russ Wilson (1), and we can debate where on the spectrum Eli Manning falls (1). So also 2-3/10.
He was the player I wanted them to draft when they picked him.
Tannehill DID show that he could lead the team to victory the first 2 seasons he was in TN. This season he wasn't the same QB we had seen. What the reason is for that can be debated but Tanny was pretty damn good and pulled off some heroics before.
He had an OC before that took advantage of his strengths and hid his weaknesses. His biggest weakness now is his OC.
Keyword is "WAS". #17 is no longer it. We've had some really great games with #17, but he's proved time after time he doesn't have what it takes to take us above and beyond. Do I expect #17 to take us to the SB each year? No. But do I expect #17 to score at least 21 points in last years playoff and today? Yes I do.
Maybe.. but people here act like Tannehill has been terrible the whole time he's been here.
Hell even this season he wasn't great, but still wasnt what I'd call terrible (outside of a few bad games which happens to all QBs)
I know everyone is emotional about the loss of a playoff game... But seems everyone is forgetting Tannehill has been good for TN.
Go back and watch the offense as a whole in the victories over the Patriots and Ravens 2 years ago and then watch the one from tonight. Watch the play calling. You’ll see the issue. It’s not even the same offense.
I agree with you. I don’t think he is the main problem on offense.
Well, every team expects that out of their QB...but guess what? It's just not reality in the NFL. Rodgers, Brady, Wilson, Mahomes, who ever you want to talk about as "elite" level QBs, especially the ones that have been around for a while have had 2 bad games in the playoffs also. They weren't immediately dumped by their team. Maybe their fans blasted them online... But the reality is that every QB flops in games, postseason or regular. It happens.
Tannehill made some bad throws/decisions, but he's also proven to be a pretty good QB. Will he win a SB? I don't know. Will Brady,Rodgers,Mahomes, etc etc etc win another? Nobody knows. But they have all been in the same boat as Tannehill is tonight.
