    I don't fault Julio for only playing 10 games. I think Titans had him on a pitch count. His job was to take us to the Superbowl. If the Titans keep winning without him, and sew up the #1 seed, no need to risk him in the regular season. We bring him in for the playoff game, and he performed like we expected him to. Not his fault that we didn't go further in the playoffs. I think this was a business decision, and I'm sure JRob understands he created a hole that needs to be filled. He'll either do it in FA or draft. I was surprised by the move, but I'm not panicked.

    Corey Davis was good, though he wasn't worth his draft position. Rishard Matthews was pretty solid. Justin McCareins had 1 good season here. But that's it.

    It isn't like we haven't spent early round picks on WR either. Since 2009 years, 6 picks in the top 2 rounds have been WR. We've "hit" on exactly one of those. Davis, Britt, and Wright were mildly successful, but were nothing special.

    Part of the problem seems to be a franchise mentality that hasn't changed much since it came to TN. We have been obsessed with running the ball and playing defense. And to their credit, we've been pretty terrific at drafting early round RBs and building good defenses.

    Yeah the franchise as a whole just has a dark cloud at WR. The ones who don’t bust and are good are rarely durable - Mason is probably the only one who stands out as a top guy and durable - unless I am remembering wrong. Regardless yah I wish they’d get over this WR abyss - we all do.

    The way to fix the WR issue is to stop relying on over the hill WR's to plug into top WR roles. The Titans need to have a draft where they focus on WR a lot. I don't have confidence though in the Titans with this. Look at the Fitzpatrick move from last year's draft.

    I don’t recall mason having any injury issues but it did take some patience on development. He wasn’t the mason we remember for his first 3-4 seasons in Tennessee although a good PR out the gate.

    I think it’s more than that. The entire offensive focus has to change for the additional WR talent to really matter. Basically, get away from Henry/running game to focus (even force) a passing attack.

    Now you're predicting the future.

    We all thought the offense was going to be unstoppable last year because of the signings... Look what happened there. You can't predict what happens on the field for 16+ games by what happens in the off season.

    I know fans want to sign every good FA but that's just not how it works. How many "dream teams" win the Superbowl, anyway?

    I understand cutting Julio but the savings do not come until June. So maybe that goes towards A.J. Brown a new deal.

    104.5 just read off the Titan wr under contract...... A.J. Brown Dez Fitzpatrick NWI and Racy McMath let that sink in!

    Huh? The only prediction in that statement was were a wildcard at best. That’s just an opinion. I didnt say anything about dream team. Actually said I understand why JRob went all in. And hobb n early didn’t disagree with the effort. PBS Tannehill was the problem with the last run. Now we’re going to be strapped with fewer draft picks and cutting vets for cap space.
