Tennessee Titans expectations are sky high

People are really high on the Tennessee Titans for the first time in a long time.

Man, what a time to be alive. Currently you would be hard pressed to find a team with more positive buzz than the Tennessee Titans.

All rightfully so. In the brief Jon Robinson and Mike Mularkey era, the  Titans have gone 9-7 and if not for a kick return here or there they would have made the playoffs and doubled their win total for the two previous seasons combined (5).

Still, when I see big media outlets so high on the Titans after what feels like a decade of piling on I have to say something.

So when the MMQB put out there power rankings I skimmed down to find where the Titans were. I didn’t have to go far.

The Titans broke though the top 10 and landed at 8th overall. This was their quick note on the team:

“So hot right now. Much hinges on a revamped secondary with newcomers Logan Ryan, Johnathan Cyprien and first-round corner Adoree’ Jackson.”

They also discussed how the Titans had a few great options for the WR2 spot, which is a great problem to have.

  • The hype doesn’t stop there though, this morning USA Today posted their win projections for the 2017 NFL season. This time the Titans were picked to share the second best record in the AFC with the Pittsburgh Steelers going an amazing 12-4.

    Only the New England Patriots topped that number. Here is what USA Today said about the Titans:

    ” Only a tiebreaker (for a woeful 2-4 division record) kept this rising club out of postseason last year. As long as Marcus Mariota remains on the field, the Titans might not only turn the corner but roar around it. They will hit a rough patch from Weeks 11-15, with a Thursday night game in Pittsburgh and consecutive games on the West Coast as part of a stretch when they play four of five away from Nashville.”

    I like the sound of roaring over the corner and I think it is possible with this current roster.

    This is all great, but as a Titans fan I have been conditioned to believe it when I see it. Having a talented young roster with a franchise QB is amazing, now lets see what this coaching staff can do with it.
