    So injuries are the excuse for the past 2 years? Even though we added Lewis, had a healthy Corey Davis, Taylor...etc. okay..

    13 TD’s, followed by 11 TD. It’s deeper than injuries man.

    Id say it starts and ends at injuries. 11 TDs looks puny sure, but look at the volume of things...

    Titans are not a pass first team, and marys sampling is smaller than some others due to missing time with injuries. Hes within the range you ask your QB to sling TDs. .03% of his throws count for six. Thats right there with Stafford and Dak.

    And the cowboys have serious needs on the other side of the ball. At least we have a good defense that is also mostly very young.

    “Tennessee Titans
    Fatal Flaw: Quarterback

    Tennessee actually did pretty well without Marcus Mariota at times, but it was obvious how much someone like Blaine Gabbert limited them. Which is why they got Ryan Tannehill! Unfortunately they now have two quarterbacks with major questions -- is either actually a franchise QB? Mariota and Tannehill are similar athletes and both former top-10 picks. One (Tannehill) got paid and one (Mariota) might get paid with a big year? The Titanshave a nice offensive line, a good group of running backs and some high picks at the skill positions (Corey Davis, A.J. Brown -- I'm not willing to bury this group just quite yet). If the quarterback play is above average this could be a sneaky great team.”

    Lewis sucked. I put most of the blame for that on Lefluer though for completely miss using him.

    Lewis is a 3rd Down and change of pace back. He is good for popping a nifty run here and there and catching out of the backfield. But that’s not how Lefluer used him.

    Maybe that’s cause Henry wasn’t running too wel either, but I think if we force feed Henry, he fixes his issues faster.

    Either way, Lewis was not the weapon we envisioned him to be last year.

    Taylor just isn’t a #2 WR. He needs to be a 3/4 . He has speed and can be a deep threat, but isn’t much more than that.

    Davis started to flash. I expect him to put it together this year.

    Overall, Our weapons last year were subpar (until Henry broke out).
