Step 5: Run his scheme
The Titans have a chance with some changes to have a nearly identical offensive team to the Cincinnati Bengals. Look at some comparisons.
Tyler Eifert=Delanie Walker: The third year tight end is having an amazing year, but I would argue it is more based on his scheme than his skill. He is a very talented tight end, but he isn’t Gronk however he is putting up Gronk-like numbers. He is doing a lot of it through great schemes where he gets matched up one on one with slow linebackers or small safeties. The perfect player to replace him is Delanie Walker.
Mohamed Sanu=Himself: Duh, right. If the Titans bring in Sanu from Cincinnati he will be able to take over his same role in Tennessee.
Marvin Jones=Kendall Wright: This is an odd fit, but I think it can work. They have a very similar play style and despite the height difference it isn’t like either plays particularly big or small.
A.J. Green=Josh Doctson: I already said this, but I think Doctson has great potential and even if the Titans have to trade back up into the first to get him, they should.
Jeremy Hill=Antonio Andrews/David Cobb: I think Cobb fits this role better, but either player could probably do it. The Titans need a power runner to go in this offense to make it work when they spread defenses out, and they have two capable players.
Bishop Sankey=Giovanni Bernard: Both running backs have done well in space, but Sankey hasn’t had the scheme or offensive line to get in space that often. He is in the doghouse now, but with a new coach he would get his chance.
Andy Dalton<Marcus Mariota: You can’t really argue this for me. Green carried that offense when Hue Jackson wasn’t there, and while Dalton has been alright, he is mostly just running the scheme. Give Marcus Mariota a chance to get those favorable matchups with a strong running game and the ability to run, and there is no way that he could be unsuccessful based on what we have seen through 10 games.
