Delanie Walker should be the focus of the offense for the Tennessee Titans.

How many Tennessee Titans free agents over the last decade can you say really made an instant and clear impact.

Ryan Succop, Ben Jones, Logan Ryan (maybe), Brian Orakpo and Rishard Matthews all come to mind, but (as I think you can guess by the title of this article) the name that comes to my mind first is Delanie Walker.

Walker has been one of the best tight ends in the NFL week after week since he got to Nashville, and without him Marcus Mariota would have had no one to throw to his rookie year.

There is a comfort and familiarity between Walker and Mariota that shows up in full force every few weeks, and this should be one of those weeks.

Forget the records and the recency biased, look at these numbers Scott Barrett posted yesterday:

What those numbers mean is that not only are tight ends getting a huge boost, but quarterbacks as well.

Combine that with Gregg Williams and his affinity for bringing pressure on nearly every snap, and you have a defense that could really be exposed by a good tight end if there is a breakdown in coverage.

With one of the best offensive lines in football, Marcus Mariota at the helm, Delanie Walker, and the ability to run play action exceptionally well the Titans are a uniquely tough matchup for the Cleveland Browns right now.

A question that will be brought up is how can Marcus Mariota fare in the cold weather of Cleveland? Well, luckily for the Titans they just played a game that was 49 degrees and maybe even cooler.

On Sunday, the temperature is supposed to be in the low 70s with a slight breeze. That is just about as perfect as you could ask for if you are Marcus Mariota.

I rarely call huge games for players because I am superstitious, but the Titans have made a clear effort to try to get Delanie Walker the ball recently. When you have a Pro Bowl weapon, you have to use him and there is no better matchup for him than the Browns this week.
