Ah, yes. Another one of those “good” teams in our NFL power rankings. Not great, just good.
That’s essentially what the non-playoff Tennessee Titans were in 2018 under then first-year head coach Mike Vrabel, who is at least showing he’s the right person for the job.
Vrabel turned around Tennessee’s defense, which eventually finished third best in points allowed last season. That’s going to be vital, if it continues, when factoring in playing both the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts twice a year. And one could make the argument the Titans have the best core, defensively, out of all four teams within the AFC South.
At least the fewest questions, perhaps.
But Tennessee still needs plenty of offensive help. Wide receiver Corey Davis isn’t emerging as a true No. 1 threat, and tight end Delanie Walker is coming off a serious season-ending injury. He’s aging, too, and the Titans would be more than wise to provide as many offensive weapons to help out quarterback Marcus Mariota, whose prime years are being wasted without bona fide playmakers.
