Titans News: Toughing it out

Yesterday was a weird one. The Titans didn’t score a touchdown on offense, and yet I didn’t feel at any point like they were in danger of losing. 4 FGs from Randy Bullock and an Andrew Adams pick 6 was all the scoring the Titans needed to finish off the sweep against the Colts in Nashville.

Despite the win, the Titans did not come out of the game unscathed. Tannehill, Simmons, and Jones all came out of the game at some point due to injury. If the Titans want to make any sort of noise down the stretch and in the playoffs, they’ll need all of them to be healthy. All three of those guys are tough guys, and maybe none tougher than Ben Jones and Ryan Tannehill. They looked very uncomfortable after getting injured and stuck it out and finished the job.

NFL.com has their “what we learned from Week 7”. What I learned is that Mike Vrabel can coach with anyone and that his roster needs a lot of help. The offensive line is one of the worst, if not the worst, in the NFL. 3 of the 5 players on Sunday were awful, especially Dennis Daley and Dillon Radunz. What a waste of draft capital. The receiving weapons are so bad that they tried to get the ball in Malik’s hands as a runner because he’s probably the most dynamic ballcarrier on the team outside of Derrick Henry.

I’m not sure that they should go “all-in” this year, especially with so many question marks now and going forward that they might need picks to go acquire (namely a QB), but if they want to be “great around Ryan Tannehill” as they’ve proclaimed all offseason, it’s going to require some outside talent. Otherwise they’ll have to continue to gut out ugly wins.
