NFL Report Card: Tennessee Titans

Our NFL report card for the 2015-2016 season will be assigning a letter grade to each of the 32 teams and offering an explanation why that grade was chosen. After the evaluation, we will point out one specific area the team will need to address this off-season. Want some extra credit? Comment down below what grade YOU would give the team, and tell me on Twitter (@FantasyFlurry) your thoughts on the team’s report card for that day!Dolphins Titans Football

It was almost impressive how bad the Titans were at football last season. Yes, they had a rookie quarterback. Yes, Jason McCourty suffered an injury. It doesn’t matter how many things are on the list, there is no excuse for a season like that. Okay, negativity is gone for a bit. They have some talented, young players that show a lot of potential that should keep Titans fans optimistic. Offensively, Marcus Mariota and Dorial Green-Beckham could both be stars in the NFL in the future. Mariota finished the season with 19 touchdowns and ten interceptions. This includes a pair of four-touchdown games. This seems irrelevant due to the poor play of most of the offensive skill positions. The only guy that seemed interested in winning games was tight end Delanie Walker, who continues to be underrated when compared to the others in his position.

There are some solid players on this defensive group: Jason McCourty, Jurrell Casey, Wesley Woodyard, and Brian Orakpo. Unfortunately, there are also some guys who received playing time that probably should not be in this league. The Titans struggled in pass coverage, especially once McCourty went down, and this is an area that needs attention before week one of next season.

Final Grade: F

Biggest Team Needs?

The Titans have done a good job this off-season at improving their offense. They brought in DeMarco Murray, Derrick Henry, some receivers, some linemen, and they look built to be a run-first team under Mularkey. Unfortunately, they have not done much for the defense, and they really haven’t done anything to address the secondary issues. They desperately need a safety and another corner, but it seems unlikely they will get one. The Titans will likely try to control the clock this season and keep the defense on the sideline as much as possible.
