    Just to reiterate that the Titans are on pace to give up 70-85 sacks this year.

    That is before Lewan quits to podcast full-time, Saffold is moved to IR for being made of glass, Jones heads to IR as 10% of the playbook is having Tannehill piggyback him for short 1st downs, and Radunz comes in and shows JRs incompetence at picking linemen.

    Could be on for a triple digit sack season.

    Just watched some of the keys plays again. So many issues with this team…

    Defensively our DBs are still giving up insane 10+ yard cushions and even then we were beaten over the top several times. I HATE the soft shell we constantly line up in. We should have crowded LOS against a rookie QB like the Jets did.

    Offensively the pass protection is unbelievably bad, but even when we have got a throw off, we’ve been plagued with untimely drops and penalties.

    Not to put it on one person when the whole team crapped the bed but Firkser dropped the game in hindsight, that was an absolute strike by Tanny, in stride, would have been a walk off TD.

    Reynolds also had two huge drops. McNicols also dropped that huge screen on 3rd and 4 (where was DH for the biggest play of the game!?)

    It seems we are finding ways to NOT make plays and fall apart in key moments unless it’s BDH.

    Long road ahead but this is not a good football team right now.

    I'd like to see the Reynolds "drops" again. I think the first would have been like a Sportscenter Top 10 catch and I think the 2nd one was a miss by Tammy. He had to reroute and the CB was all over him. But I only got the quick in game looks.

    Any even remotely respectful opposing d-line will have a field day with the Titans o-line.

    Hasn’t been brought up too much but Rogers getting the whistle blown on him was kind of BS too considering how long the jets TD run got before a whistle.

    May have been a “cheap” TD, but I don’t think anyone was gong after him after that initial contact.
    I couldn’t possibly put this game on the refs though. That post above says it all, 4 guys with 6+ pressures, 7 sacks. That OL did the offense in and the D couldn’t do enough to stop a rookie.

    Fact of the matter is that the Jets got a little better and we got a little worse. They got Crowder back and we lost Julio and AJ. It does make a big difference. And any given Sunday… I hate to see the Titans come up with an L, but it was an exciting game to watch.

    At this point, none are needed. Vrabel's preferred defensive scheme is off man coverage. It failed when he ran in it Houston, and it continues to fail here. Because Vrabel has his yes man in Bowen leading the defense, do not expect this to change much.

    Serious question - did Saffold lead the team in receiving yards yesterday?
