Dude, they were using a third string left tackle if I’m not misunderstanding and we couldn’t offset this? It seems too often everyone just glosses over other teams overcoming their big loss and makes up for it in some way, we always want to use the crutch of well this guy is out or that guy is out. It’s more than Titans game, this team has been a roller coaster ride all year from reading articles and these forums.  Very inconsistent. Did Turay contribute yesterday? Who else went up against the LT spot? Did anyone get pressure on their QB? Apologists in here. 

 

And they were running it right up the middle most of the time so their LT wasn't really an issue

Running it sure, but when passing and the drop backs, how much time did their QB have to survey the field? I’m just going by what I’ve seen posted and written about, I haven’t seen a game this year. I think it was Bowen who mentioned in his pod that passrush wasn’t present. In fact, I think he also mentioned that team ran right, left and center without much resistance. But it did sound like our #2 backup LT struggled mightily. They had no concerns from using #3 guy. We have Houston and Turay and Muhammad with Lewis and Newly extended Grover steward and that defense did jack squat. Yea, missing a huge piece in the middle with a stud but again, I point to them losing a LT and not missing a beat while the Colts peed the bed.

It's not exactly easy to pass rush when you're trying to stop a freight train every third play basically. You get fatigued. Again this was an outlier because of covid and injuries. Stop stressing about it. We can still get the division.

I think too many forget how good the Titans are. They didn't luck themselves into the AFC championship game last year. 

Not too many wants to give credit to the talent of who we play. It's easier to just lay blame on the Colts players.

Well they do have Henry so it does make them more than relevant. 

Losing Fuller was a huge hit but no matter your opinion of who is talented on their roster, Henry didn't do it by himself. It seems you overlook quite a bit of talent on their roster IMO.

Good point but what you are missing is there is three phases of football. 

One is dependent on the other two to win games. No one phase wins without at least one of the other.

Your missing the point.  Great players are what make a team something.  Of course if you take them away a team is nothing.  That’s true of any team in the league not just the Titans.

I’m not stressed over it at all. I’m pointing out observations I’ve made. It’s also not an outlier. I pointed out all the teams this Colts group has played without their top tackle or a top wr or their starting QB and those teams exploit ours for some reason far too often. Not sure why this team struggles when we should be able to attack those weaknesses but we rarely seem to do so. Their is just something about this coaching staff that isn’t too shelf and I just envision the team stuck in mediocrity for the duration while we have what we have. Again, that’s my view, others clearly have different views but aside from FR being a great individual human, his coaching hasn’t quite been on some other level here. I’m sure they will figure out the issues and if it’s personnel or if it’s coaching, someday, they will figure out the proper way to address it. NFL does stand for not for long and you either produce a winner or you get moved on from.

    • So, sell the number to your QB, and set up a nice college fund for your kid who's on the way... easy out for a testy situation. Honestly I'd rather see Wentz in a new number, new team, new start.
    • #5 pick for Ryan Kelly? Y’all have lost your minds 
    • The trade is just not realistic and it would be odd to see us re-sign only one player, let the rest walk and then sign that many free agents. With that said I like most of the personnel except Carl Lawson. The draft is great, the trade just doesn't make sense from the Dolphins standpoint. There is plenty to like here.
    • I think some of that and why he has regressed is because of that ACL injury. That is a confidence issue with him now. He wants to keep that toe bent so if he gets hit in the leg, it will bend the way it needs to. He's got to trust again. That's why he made a lot of those bad throws this year because he didn't trust his line to protect him.   The messed up thing about that is he got his knee busted on a run play diving for 6.    Godspeed young man.
