    So, serious question to all the Trannyites....what do you have to see from him going forward the rest of the year to KEEP him as your starter going forward? He played really well, 23-29 (79.3 percent) 312 yards 2 TD passes for the positive. 2 sacks (if they were MM fault they are Tranny's fault), one INT, One fumble, and the worst Negative play, ONE failed QB sneak that would have sealed the game. So, I ask again in terms of stats, wins, whatever, what do YOU have to see to say "He's our QB going into next season and NOT draft a QB in the first round?

    Keep him draft a qb makes most sense to me. Hire a stellar qb coach also going into next year.

    If he keeps it up, we'll have competition.

    It's just one game, I'll wait until the season is over to judge Tammy. I am happy Tammy got the offense going a bit.

    He made good decisions last night, did very well despite not getting much time in the pocket. When he threw it he did so with conviction and without hesitation which is a breath of fresh air to watch at the Titans QB Position.

    If he can clinch the division I'd say he's our guy.

    I liked what I saw, Tannehill played well. That said, it was against a team that was on about the Titans own skill level, and they didn't exactly blow them out. It's almost like the QB position isn't the Titans only problem.

    Regardless, it is too soon to be making that decision imo. Let's see how it goes for a few more games and we'll have a better idea of how well he fits. I do like seeing a QB stretch the field, and Tannehill certainly looks like he is capable of doing just that so far.

    Tannehill appears serviceable as QB with one game in. He threw with anticipation and strength. Our WR's caught balls and were able to use their skills to win some contested catches like they should.

    Let's see how he does over a few more games to see if I think he'd be good enough to put the team on his shoulders against stouter defenses. That's what a franchise QB is supposed to be able to do.

    As far as extending him, I'd offer a 4 year deal right now. We've already invested a 4th round pick in him. I'd attempt to move Mariota right now- I'd take a 4th round pick (attempt better, accept conditional improved pick) for him.

    BTW- I think we've got a snowball's chance in hell of winning the division. We have to win out against the division and the conference and keep up with the Texans and Colts. Barring an injury to Brissett or Watson- I don't see that happening.

    I don’t think playoffs will be an option this season but I’m all for THill trying.
    I absolutely think titans need to draft a QB next year. I’m also one of the dying breed that likes the idea of a rookie QB riding the pine season 1, maybe longer.

    With that, we need a QB to play still until either injury or just really poor play causes the rookie to come in. Got no issue with THill being that guy. I think he’s still going to be cheap enough that he can stick around for a couple years as the starter prepping the rookie to take over, then as backup.

    Whatever the case, zero room on the roster for MM.
