Are the Colts better than the titans

Look at the Titans after the first 6 games when Tannehill took over. They are a Top 5 offensive team. That has to be factored in, IMO.

In theory Ballard could throw him a Foles type offer. 

I can't lie I'm not buying his stock long term, but I'm not a GM.

The Titans are going to have to pay Henry and Tannehill in the offseason.

Not even close.  

Tannehill had more TD's, same amount of INT's.   3.5 yards more per attempt, a rating 30 points higher, a completion % 10 points higher.  It goes on and on.

  

In less games too

No. The titans have been a sleeper. Theyve been buidling a solid roster for a bit. Tannehill seems to be the last piece to the puzzle. I blame Reggie for talking *.

With a better QB yes by a mile.

Both teams have a really good young core.

Personally though, I'm envious of their young defensive players. Simmons, Landry, Jayon Brown, Rashaan Evans, Byard's still pretty young, and Amani Hooker looks like a good young piece. They just seemingly need some CB's...Adoree Jackson either looks decent or gets picked on.

Then on offense, really like their OL. Good mix of vets and youth. Really like AJ Brown and Derrick Henry.

So...when the Colts lose....it's because of JB.

But when the Colts win....it isn't because of JB.

 

How convenient for a narrative. If you saw what I was quoting, it was that the Colts were not as good as any team in our division as long as JB was the QB. How is that possible when they beat all three teams? Care to explain?

Nope, it is both.   I've said he is a .500 QB and going 3-3 in our division backs up my narrative.

With Tannehill under center the Titans are demonstrably better than the Colts.

We're a match for the Titans when healthy.  We didn't stay healthy. 

 

Worth noting that the Titans' core and coaching has been together for the most part for several years now and Reich is still putting his team together and feeling everything out. 

 

If we had Andrew Luck we are probably at least playing in the Wild Card Round.

 

As it is with Brissett, we got unlucky  with injuries and that's the single biggest reason our boys are sitting at home.

 

We need to make some changes to make the team more resilient to bad news, but I honestly think we got bottom percentile outcomes on several fronts and were still in the running until the wheels fell off completely.  I also think that Brissett is capable of more than he gave us, especially in the second half.

How do you know what Ballard will spend on a proven QB? 

He has never had to worry about that till Luck retired and Brissett was already on the roster.

You can't money your way into a great QB.  Very, very rarely do top QBs hit FA.  They're too valuable, teams will go to any length to meet the price of a QB who is winning games for them, to the point that even the average to above average guys get overpaid outrageously.

 

However good you think Dak Prescott is, I bet you real money the Cowboys won't let him hit FA, and Prescott isn't actually that much better than the guy we have right now (Dak has a better supporting cast).  If Dak won't hit FA, no QB better than him will ever hit FA either, unless the QB himself decides to leave his situation, which is dang rare.

 

There's definitely areas you can invest money into a team to improve your chances of winning, but the only way you get the privilege of paying for an elite QB, is if you are re-signing one you've already developed, or if some franchise really, REALLY screwed up (See also: Manning, Peyton)

Teams are very close. Primary difference is that Tennessee shows up in the 4th quarter. Colts do not.

True,

Their OC and TE coach are in their 1st year. OL, RB, WR, QB coaches are in their 2nd year.

DC, OLB, ILB, secondary, and DL coaches are in their 2nd year.

I know! I normally research, before typing something to support what I’m saying. I caught one who didn’t do so.

Hmm.  Titans are in the AFCCG.  Colts are in offseason mode.  So...no.

True.  And one might argue that one of the reasons the Colts are in offseason mode is partly due to Reich staying with Vinny until the very end whereas coach Vrabel benched Mariotta in favor of Tannehill midway through the season.  I guess their coach wasn't afraid to make a bold move when it was called for.

Last year the Colts beat the titans and Texans twice. This year when healthy the Colts beat them both.  Ryan tannehill is an average qb at best.  If k.c. gets any kind of early lead it will be a blowout.

i hope he does, but his past history says he wont give big money to game changers and the colts have a lack of game changers because of his past history

Also according to NFL.com the Colts are rated 17th in total defense. 

That is a long way from what you said. 

Crazycolt1, understand the guy just blows incoherently with no facts but just his uneducated opinion. Don't get too worked up as he won't admit he could be wrong.

 Theyll probably franchise tag Tannehill so theyll have to work out a deal on Henry.

The titans are basically us from last year, except they didn't choke their momentum away in the divisional rd.

Titans are playing with house money now a lot like we were in 2014 when we faced the Pats in the Title Game. Nobody thought we would beat Denver to advance. IMO it is KC's to lose in the AFC but the Titans just held Jackson to 12 points so you never know and the Chiefs do have problems stopping the run. Henry may gash them too.

Eh, I'm still not impressed by that 2014 playoff run. Bengals in the Wild Card and then the corpse of Manning in the Divisional?

 

Tennessee making the run that I wish our team did. Beating Brady and Pats in Foxboro and then coming through with a #1 seed upset the following week is glorious. So jealous of them. Unlike us in 2014, I can actually see TEN beating KC in the AFCCG....that Titans team is equipped to beat them and I don't trust Andy Reid at all in the postseason. He's like 1-8 all-time against the Titans if I recall.

What's really weird is that the in 2 playoff games, he's thrown for 150 yards total (and 3 TDs of course). He really hasn''t put up the gaudy numbers he was in season.  He was still a primary reason they won though.  Just kind of goes to show you that there's a lot of ways to win in the playoffs, but you need everything working together.  Complimentary football as Ballard and Reich often like to put it.

    • Agree. I think people underestimate the ability of coaches to tailor offenses towards their best players. This is especially true for the coaches that are actually good, which I think Arians is(even though I too have some thoughts on his offense and playcalling).    You might actually argue Ben and Luck especially were used the way they were by Arians precisely because they they can actually do it and can actually mitigate some of the drawbacks of playing that type of offense. I think Arians is plenty smart enough to adjust his offense to what Brady can and cannot do. I still think Brady can be one of the better passers in the intermediate range and even take some shots downfield when well protected and he will have some of the best supporting casts and weapons he's had recently. I don't think Arians will ask Brady to do what he was asking Luck to do. 
    • Or their putting out players to excel a play. For instance, a hard PA that looks like a run. Teams will buy it's a run more if Pascal is on the field then Campbell. All I'm saying is, don't sleep on Pascal just because we took two WRs early. We can take advantage of each of their best traits.
    • Not sure TB12 would make it to Bye Week if Arians was the playcaller
    • I have some thoughts on Arians' offense and playcalling, but Leftwich is the playcaller now. And I think they'll tailor things to fit Brady's strengths and maximize the weapons they have. I don't think Brady is as dangerous a passer as he once was, but it was only a couple years ago that he threw for 500 yards in the Super Bowl.    Arians' calling plays for Ben and Luck (and even Jameis) -- who thrived in a downfield passing attack, who liked to hold on to the ball and shrug off tacklers -- probably doesn't have a whole lot of significance for the 2020 Bucs with Brady. Arians might be stubborn, but he's not stupid.
    • I’d love to have Clowney.... and I’m a big believer in the high character players the Colts have targeted recently. But with the uncertainty over what the salary cap will look like next year, and the multiple free agents the Colts need to sign, it makes sense to be cautious. If they could get him on a one year affordable deal, heck yeah. But I suspect Clowney will hold out for a better deal than that....which is why Clowney and the Colts are not the best fit. Gonna have to roll with J. Houston and the kids.
