No team in the NFL has been more difficult to predict week-to-week than the Titans. On some Sundays, Marcus Mariota looks like a Pro Bowl signal caller who can move this offense at will. On other Sundays, the Titans look like a franchise who should be shopping for a new quarterback in April’s Draft.
The truth, as usual, is somewhere in between. The Titans are a quality team that’s been a little bit unlucky to limp into the bye with a 3-4 record. A few breaks here and there and Tennessee could easily be 5-3.
The most disappointing thing about the season for Titans fans is the lack of a supporting cast to emerge to help Mariota. There’s no sure-fire No. 1 receiver or running back on the roster. That’s something that must change if the Titans are going to make the playoffs.
Mike Vrabel has done a good job of putting his defense in position to succeed. They aren’t shutting down every opponent, but they’ve kept their team in almost every game. There are definitely things to build on in Tennessee, but the first half of the year makes it clear this is an incomplete roster.
