    Defense wasn’t great under Pees either... Titans were better on 3rd down that’s about it.

    Take it for what it's worth:


    2019 / 2020

    Pts allowed - 331 / 439

    Total yards - 6028 / 6372

    Passing yds - 4356 / 4439

    rushing yds - 1672 / 1933

    Sacks - 43 / 25

    3rd down - 74/204 - 36.28% / 111/214 - 51.87%

    4th down - 16/25 - 40% / 15/26 - 57.67%

    Takeaway - 8 INT/ 8 FR / 7 INT/ 8 FR


    2019 was better all the way around even if not great.

    Look at the numbers after Tannehill took over. I posted the stats on here already.

    Here they are again:

    Since Tannehill took over as QB the Titans defense has looked very similar year over year:

    2019 (starting week 7):
    24 PPG allowed
    381 YPG allowed
    277 passing yards PG
    104 rush yards PG

    2020:
    27 PPG allowed
    396 YPG allowed
    228 passing yards PG
    168 rush yards PG

    So we should get rid of THill to improve the Defense?

    I guess that's what I'm asking you.

    You said that the D in 2019 played just about on par with 2020 after THill took over.
    Either that's an arbitrary week (7) to break the 2019 season into two pieces to better suit your argument that 2020 and 2019 were the same level of bad OR you are making the connection that because THill took over, the D got worse.

    No one is saying the defense got worse BECAUSE Tannehill took over. You read things that aren’t even there. The defense got worse when Tannehill took over though. The reasons are pretty obvious when you step back and look at it.

    I’m sure you’ll just keep jumping up assumptions, but before you do. Go look at the schedule. Then after that think about how a dynamic offense changes a game (think # of possessions for both teams). Titans offense changed drastically after the QB change. We went from a grind out the clock and win a close game to a quick strike offense.

    Need more proof of this? Look at Buffalo. One of the top defenses in the league when their offense sucked. This year? Their defense was not great.

    Got it. An arbitrary week to separate the entirety of the season to better suit your argument.

    THill taking over or not had nothing to do with it based on this response. Week 7 the defense taking a step backwards is an arbitrary separation. I'm sure if we could select a 6 week period to remove from the 2020 season, you could drastically change the overall performance, either better or worse, than what the season as a whole provided.

    The entirety of 2019 was better than the entirety of 2020 but wasn't great. My exact point.

    Its not arbitrary at all lol I literally told you why I picked that week and provided examples as to why it’s relevant. But you literally just like to argue so unless you actually want to rebuttal what I’ve posted... goodbye.
