Bringing you the best bits of news or information about the Tennessee Titans that have circulated around the internet over the past week.
With the offseason in its most dull period until after the NFL Draft, news and analysis has been hard to come by as of late. Most of the news surrounding the Tennessee Titans and the NFL in general is centered around speculation and rumors.
Thankfully, this past week was a bit of an eventful one in terms of news and information about the Titans. Let’s see what was floating around the internet.
- Nashville, Tennessee is one of five finalists to host the 2019 or 2020 NFL Draft
- Former Bears and Steelers QB Kordell Stewart sees a warrior in Marcus Mariota
- Rams RB Todd Gurley loves the hire of OC Matt LaFleur by the Titans
- Adam Schein is not a huge fan of the Mike Vrabel hire
- Steve McNair was nothing short of a legend and we all miss him every day
- The Titans will play the Chargers in London next season and tickets are available
Let’s go through each of these in reverse order.
If you live near London and are a Titans or football fan, then you need to go to that Titans-Chargers game, which should be a doozy (they always are). If you don’t, a spontaneous vacation to watch your Two-Tone Blue at Wembley wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world!
Steve McNair would’ve turned 45 years old this previous Wednesday. His life was tragically cut short, but he left Titans fans with so many memories that they will cherish forever. As I wrote on Valentine’s Day two days ago, his aura will remain with the Titans franchise forever.
Adam Schein recently ranked all of the head coach hires of this offseason, and Mike Vrabel to the Titans came in last. We keep receipts around here.
Todd Gurley played under Matt LaFleur with the Rams last season and had one of the best offensive seasons by a running back in NFL history, getting named the Offensive Player of the Year in the process. Gurley talked a little about LaFleur and how excited he is to see the new Titans OC call plays for the first time at the NFL level. I bet LaFleur would love to have a Gurley type of back on the offense, or maybe turn Derrick Henry into something similar.
Kordell Stewart was one of my favorite QBs to watch–and play with in football video games–growing up due to his insane athleticism and backyard style of play. Stewart’s words of praise for Mariota make me like him even more, and he’s completely right about everything he says about the Hawaiian.
Nashville has been named one of five finalists to host either the 2019 or 2020 NFL Draft. Its competition is Canton, Kansas City, Denver and Las Vegas. Some stiff competition, but anyone who has been to Nashville can attest to how great and electric of a city it is. The NFL would hit a home run by making the draft in the Music City.
