Hard fought win yesterday and it was a big divisional win, which made it even more important.
Our defense played well and limited Henry. He had a couple of big runs, but all good RBs will have those in games...it's key to limit those and make the consistent stops to limit the good ones to 2-3 yards per carry, which we did.
Mariotta still does not impress me and I can see the Titans moving on from him after this season. He makes bad decisions when he runs the ball and puts himself in danger.
We had some costly penalties, but were able to overcome those. Feel so badly for Adam V. and I wonder if this was his last game. He had the appearance of a confused and defeated man on the sideline.
Kickers are always weird. It is the most mentally draining position on any team. When you get older, it takes longer to heal, physically, intellectually, and emotionally. I also guarantee that he is more aware and disappointed about his performance than anybody else. I hope, and believe, he will bounce back.
we have seen him for a full season though and he looks pretty similar to 2017. Check the numbers if you dont believe that.
JB has a lot in common with Mariota, efficient game managers that can win with strong running game and defenses but most peopled dont believe they will win a ring. im not even mad either i hope they do well this year but keep an eye on QBs in the draft or maybe FA
Titans have made the playoffs once in the last 10 years. Chargers twice i nthe past 9. Not really "regulars." And whatever being "better" on paper means, it's the NFL and any team can win any given day, despite how a roster is composed.
I'm not saying they're bad, good or whatever, except that "on paper," they have the same record as us and while the Titans looked good against Cleveland last week, they were unimpressive this week. Which Titans are the real Titans? I don't know, hence, underwhelming, at least the version we saw yesterday. The Chargers played us closely, but they missed a ton of opportunities yesterday. I think they had a turnover, interception maybe, when they had two TDs called back because of penalties.
I'm not trying to naysay so much as be realistic about what Jacoby is doing. He's serviceable. Not a guy that's your first choice to lead your franchise. I can't even say he's top 16. If he's not cracked that list, our going to a super bowl while he's under center just does not seem very plausible. Not this year anyway. And if not ever with him, then we should start looking to replace him in next year's draft. And thus far, unless he shows me something else, particularly against top tier competition, that's the direction we're headed.
