I never said A.J. was Brady- I said he helped make the offense much better (as did the other draft picks JR let walk in order to overpay Tannehill.
Let's face it, though. He was the one stud wide receiver the Titans have drafted in like 20 years. A true talent that made Tannehill look like an offensive playmaker (especially with Arthur Smith at the helm).
He made the Titans better. Without him and decent protection Tannehill returned to playing pretty pedestrian football (the injuries haven't helped).
This team has to find a better way of maintaining their talent at all positions. They need to get smarter with the cap, and they need to become more creative in how they use that talent, otherwise they'll continue to get our hopes up just to make us feel like we're wasting our time rooting for them.
this quote was very misleading then if you weren’t making the comparison to TB12.
In general, got it, Brown was a better WR than anything else the titans have drafted probably ever at WR.
The issue with his value was lack of use in TN and his lack of want to be in TN.
His general production in TN has been comparably replaced by DHOP this season.
I disagree THill “returned” to anything. He put up pretty solid numbers in Miami but as a team they weren’t good. He came to TN and not only had career years, but he had top 5 QB years which is what got him the contract. His contract was similar to a lot of JRob contracts where the back end was loaded but they were short contracts to dump if necessary. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with the strategy, it was just common for JRob.
When the OL started playing garbage like, THill got his a$$ handed to him, his play rapidly declined. I’m once that happened, having AJ Brown would have made no difference.
for the general take, I’m mostly in agreement. Brown was really good even if underutilized to his capabilities (also on brown missing games and in-game time).
They do need to be better with the cap, coincidently, only took 1 season to recover from JRob by the amount available in 24’, they need to use the talent, I.e. Henry, give him carries but also, last year as Chig look like he could be a breakout star, he wasn’t really used. Maybe they saw the drops coming but I’m not giving them that credit.
And last, such is the life of an Oilers/Titans fan. They have for decades found ways to get the fans hopes up just to lay a rotten egg.
So Tannehill went from throwing the ball to positions all over the field, DEAD ON TARGET in positions where the receiver was almost guaranteed YAC to inaccurate, slow, and PTSDs because 1 receiver left?
hard to argue that is how it turned out
tougher to make that argument at the time although props to T17 agent making his ass uncutable
That misconception continues to be promoted here. Brown only wanted to be paid at market value for his talent. He stated he WANTED to be here but it's business. Titans just mismanaged their business. Brown has proven he'd have been worth it. I don't get the disdain for Brown. He made the move any of us would have made.
We compounded this cluster-F by drafting "Jack-Chit" Burks instead of addressing the O-line. Bad management all around.
He wasn’t worth $25 mil/ year to TN.
And yes, the compound terrible pick was awful.
All we could hope for is that not spending $25/m per year on a stud WR, that we use it to sure up other deficiencies
and JRob found the trash can.
Because our offense is killing it without him. Remember when we #1 red zone offense and top 5 scoring?
