    I rarely if ever use the BS button- but dude what you're spewing is just straight out aluminum foil hat fodder. The reason the titans haven't had anything yet is because we've been POORLY managed since Floyd Reese left. Until now. For the first time in the past 15 years I think our arrow is up. And I think good things are going to come in the next 3 years. I've gone on record saying that if we stick with Vrabel- we'll be running deep in the playoffs by 2024. By that time the Brady/BB juggernaut will be gone (hopefully). We'll have a shot at it all by then.

    The Browns are a similar franchise to what we were. They had a good draft and off season so that revved up the hype machine. They'll be better IF they gel. That is yet to be determined. They definitely have proven talent. But their big question mark is Freddie Kitchens. I don't think he has what it takes to corral all that talent and ego in one direction.

    Gotta be honest Gut. I didn’t read all of this haha I’ve explained myself multiple times about this. Just read the rest of the thread and you should understand my stance. Sorry dude.

    I’ll try to summarize since I know it can be hard to keep track of everything in this thread. Lots of messages.

    There aren’t many teams that need a QB, and the ones that do - I don’t think are going to want to pay Mariota over drafting their own guy (because chances are they have a top 10 pick).

    Most teams have a guy they recently drafted or a vet QB they have locked up. I’ve listed 4 teams that you could legitimately make an argument for but 3 of them will be picking in the top half of the draft IMO.

    30 other teams had a chance to get Tannehill to come play for them for a 4th round pick and they wouldn’t have to pay all of his salary. Yet no one did it except for us... yet we are worried about him signing elsewhere for big money? Lol

    It doesn’t matter what I think. It matters what NFL execs think.

    Once again, there are only so many QB openings in the NFL.. All of those dudes don’t have to be top 10 picks or even first rounders.

    Um ok...let's see if we can break thru your 'conspiracy theory' theory.

    How are MOST teams better than the Titans???

    So you think Baker will benefit from a conspiracy because he has commercials? How did that help Drew Brees last year in the playoffs?

    Same goes for OGJ? Who's that? Did you mean OBJ? How did him having so much popularity help the Giants win? Eli has a bunch of commercials too...but no conspiracy theory for them? How did endorsements equals wins workout for Aaron Rodgers the last few years?

    Ah, and now you've changed from commercials equals wins to Uniforms equals Super Bowls? Why?

    So I guess you should start bombarding the front office with names of better fashion designers and commercial writers so we can have more wins and win some Super Bowls!

    So let's keep this short and simple. Your view is that there is an over abundance of good starting qb's and I (and most of the NFL) thinks the opposite. How do we know who's right? The Law of Supply and Demand!

    If you're right, then we will have seen this situation before...where a high pedigree qb has an above average season, goes into free agency, and is 'forced' to take a below average deal because there are too many good qb's. I can't find a single example of this. Can you?

    If I'm right, then we will have seen below avg production qb's getting OVER paid. I have seen this A LOT!!! Haven't you?

    Lastly, you haven't answered the most obvious question. If Mariota and Tannehill aren't our qb in 2020 and we don't have a high draft pick...who is?

    So to be clear, you're advocating we lowball (lose) Mariota and think we're gonna draft a qb at the end of round 1 or 2 or 3 and they will come in as rookies and give us as good a chance to win in year 1? The odds are stacked HEAVILY against you!

    NFL coaches and scouts look at a class in 2 ways...who are starters (or potential starters) and who are backup candidates. In general, 1st rounders are starters, 2nd rounders could be starters, 3rd rounders is where backups start or seriously undersized starters begin.

    Which execs have you talked to that think this is a deep starting qb class? I don't care about deep backups since we are discussing who's gonna start next year on ostensibly a playoff team?

    Thanks for being honest about not reading it...but I think you should so you understand where the league and where Mariota will likely fall into if he has a good season.

    I understand your stance and your point of view (thanks for summarizing) but I just don't agree with it.

    If there were too many good QB's, you wouldn't have Jared Goff (who is NOT the 4th best QB in the league) getting a huge contract extension that makes him the 4th highest paid QB. In an overabundant market, teams don't overpay, the players get less. In this market, the players are getting more...A LOT MORE!!! That's how you know there are too few good qb's...not too many!

    It shouldn't have been this close. We were something like 2/9 on third down prior to the Browns' collapse. That really shouldn't happen with chain movers like Humphries, Walker, Davis, Henry, and now Brown.

    I said nothing about an over abundance of good QB’s. I said most teams have a QB they are committed to for the next few years at least.

    Yes I did answer the tannehill Q. Teams could have had him for cheap this year. He ain’t signing for big money.
