The Super Bowl has ended, the bad guys won, and now we enter the offseason. It seemingly takes forever to get to September from here, but we do have two major checkpoints in team-building before then: free agency and the draft. To put it bluntly, this season was a failure. A team with Super Bowl aspirations didn’t win a playoff game. Yes there were injuries and hardships throughout the year, but when it mattered, everyone was healthy and they couldn’t get it done.
Questions have come up regarding Ryan Tannehill’s ability to get it done in the playoffs, and for me it’ll be a “I’ll believe it when I see it” type expectation for him. That being said, the every day complaining about it, the every day tagging him in your tweets about how he cost the Titans, the every day griefing needs to stop. He screwed up. No one denies that. That doesn’t mean his life needs to be a living hell from now on.
Complaining isn’t going to rewrite history and it sure isn’t going to help anything in the future. The GM and head coach aren’t changing their views on Tannehill based on your social media posts. Don’t make what will be a long offseason even longer by being miserable 24/7. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk. On to the links.
The Titans top needs are still OL, WR, and TE. No position on the defense is screaming for help unless they fail to re-sign Harold Landry. Go get some more studs for the offense should be JRob’s charge this offseason.
Do Vrabel and JRob’s contract extensions count against the salary cap? Of course not, but Jim Wyatt fields that question and more in his mailbag.
Kevin Byard says he wants his legacy to include winning a Super Bowl for the Titans. I too would like him to do that.
Make Offense Great Again must be the creed this offseason for the Titans. They rank at 8th in the way too early power rankings for 2022 and I think that’s fair. No reason they can’t win the division again, but they need to add some firepower if they want to reach the promised land.
