    Mariota was the issue, not Art. Already the offense looks more fluid.

    Do you even pay attention to the Titans?
    Art was hired specifically for Mariota. The ONLY reason Art is OC is because poor, little, fragile Mariota. Mariota has proven that he cannot be a good qb, so now we are stuck with Art. Thanks Mariota, not only have you been stinking it up but you hog tie us to a rookie OC.

    Bro we should have put that game away and done more on offense but arts and play calling stalled drives and almost cost us the game. We got lucky. Tanny fumbled twice and had a dropped int. Mariota could have won us that game just as easy. Then again he could have played bad but don't act like Art is not a big issue.

    No, I'm not buying it. The Titans went after Tannehill with perhaps full intention of making him their starting QB. Why would they do this? I feel that Arthur Smith wanted what he believed was a better QB for his offensive scheme, after all he was the new OC. Mariota was just extra baggage and it perhaps was already decided that the organization would not give him a new contract. He was expendable. It raised a lot of eyebrows when the
    Titans acquired Tannehill because they're paying him more than a million dollars. They're not going to do that and then keep him on the sidelines. They had full intention of playing him.

    Nothing happens unless it goes thru Vrabel. I assure you, Vrabel did Mariota no favors and took the team in an entirely different direction.

    Vrabel was a lineman and he's probably never thrown a football his entire life. Here he is, a greenhorn head coach hiring an OC. If you want to blame someone, I think you go after the idiot that hired Vrabel.

    Forget Tanny! Brady will be available this offseason. We all know JRob will be in the running for that steal.

    Tannehill was the 2nd most aggressive QB in the NFL per next gen stats. He had an expected completion % of 57%. He competed 79% of his attempts, the biggest differential in the league.

    You do realize Tannehill’s deal was not that big compared to other backup QB, right?

    Lots of other, less capable backups are making more than Tannehill.

    We haven't beaten anyone yet. He looked good, but let's make the playoffs and beat someone. If he does that he has more than earned the right to be the starter next year. However, no matter what, draft a qb with the expectation that Tannehill will mentor him until he is ready to start. Then Tannehill is more than an adequate backup.
