    I agree he needs to improve in alot of areas, but what he is going to do this year is out of my control. I'm hoping for a great's alot better than griping about the past, if he's a Titan going forward, great, if not I'll continue to be a Titans fan.

    I think he will be just fine this year. So much attention is going to be on Henry, we have a solid WR group who has also had a handful of Off coordinators. Walker is back and we addressed the O line. We are in a position unlike most teams where we can pick up any position and be good. I hope we pick up Jaylon Ferguson. With him our LB unit is set for years.

    It’s a pretty good offense right now, he’s not crippled by lack of weapons and that would include a new QB.

    Every team year to year can use upgrades as players get another year older. Titans will need a TE very soon but they at least have an existing one, pass rush is what’s needed or we should just expect 2 losses to the colts now.

    You're not insuating it, you've been saying it over and over and over again.

    I agree with you that he (or whomever our future qb may be) needs more help. So why don't you just say...I think we need more playmakers! I like play X cause I think he helps the team like this...

    You can leave out the other stuff.

    Just a suggestion to get more CHEERS and less TROLLS.

    Because by not addressing the white elephant in the room, I think saying that we need more playmakers is slight to our other players that they really don't deserve. We want to compete with the best offenses in the league. Given the events of the past two seasons, Mariota clearly needs a LOT of help in order to do so.

    Were/are Jerry Rice, Larry Fitzgerald, Hopkins, AJ Green, Boldin, TO, etc. the types of players who could turn a screen into a 80 yard TD? No. But are they playmakers? Absolutely . They get open and catch everything thrown their way. The way WRs have done it for decades.

    If we put Davis, Walker, Humphries, not to mention guys like Taylor and Jonnu who have shown the ability to make plays, and a good running game around Aaron Rodgers, I think we'd see a great offenses with a lot of big plays. But we'd have to be betting on serious improvement from our QB in order for that to be good enough to compete with the top offenses in the league. A better bet is to try putting A guy out there who can turn regular plays into TDs.

    Back when Mariota gave our WRs opportunities to make plays in 16, he threw 26 TDs and our scoring offense was in the top 3rd of the league. So I'm not buying the claim that our offense is struggling due to a lack of play makers. Unless you are referring to the QB

    Agree with everything else you wrote except this. I think even @VondyP and @Thaddeus43 would agree that Mariota was not one of the best QB's in the league last year when healthy.
