  • Hello from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada! I love the podcast and absolutely love the Titans! Derrick Henry is a beast and I can’t wait to see him run all over the Colts! I think the playoffs are a real possibility this season, but after that, the Titans are going to have to make several cap decisions. I think the Titans will absolutely resign Henry and let Mariota walk away, but are there any players you see as someone the Titans will let walk away that might be a shock to the rest of the fans?

    Thanks,

    Devin

Stupid Question of the Week

  • With 5 games left, A. J. Brown has 581 yds receiving.  Does he have a realistic chance of getting to 1,000 yds this season? (Needs 84 yds/game)

  • I’m a long-time listener in Berlin, Germany. We love the NFL here, but I am part of a group of devoted Titans fans. My question: With the real need for a quality backup QB, do you think that the Titans will keep Marcus Mariota as a solid backup?

    Keep it coming,

    Chris

  • “December and Brady.”

    Texans X 2
    Colts Away
    and Saints

    Damn, we better go 2-0 before the bye with possibly two back-up quarterbacks as opponents.

    We can't expect to go 4-0 in December.

    Are you interested in a 43-year-old Brady?

    I’m not at all.

    • Confusing game plan
      • Forcing Dion Lewis into a gameplan when Derrick Henry should get more carries
      • Not involving playmakers enough
    • Emphasizing weaknesses and avoids using strengths
  • Take 1: Running Game
    • Please stop trying to use Dion Lewis more than 10% in the running game. It just isn’t working.
    • Be more creative in the running game. Come to the line with more than one run ready, and then let the QB make the call according to the setup of the defense.
    • Too often running the ball into a stacked front 
  • Take 2: Passing Game
    • Some recent positives are overshadowed by inconsistent play
    • Corey Davis acts like he wants to be the “one”, but tends to disappear from the plan
    • Did we pay Adam Humphries big bucks to catch punts?
  • Take 3: Coaching
    • No true concept of time management during a game
    • Not properly managing the coaching staff (Keith Carter - ruining a top 5 offensive line)
    • Coaching to a plan and the skills we don’t have, and not using the skills we do

Stupid Question of the Week

  • Will the Titans make the playoffs?
