Is the Tennessee Titans roster vastly underrated?

Do the Tennessee Titans have the best offense in the NFL? No.

How about the best offense in the AFC? Well, still no and it isn’t really that close. However, a lot of that can be traced back to the offensive coaching staff, but we have all heard that story before.

Look at this chart that Mike Clay made. It ranks the need of teams at QB, WR, RB, and TE from 1st (meaning they need that position more than anyone else in the league) to 32nd.

Are the Titans the best at any particular ranking? No, though they are close at tight end.

However, if you add those rankings together you can get a value I call “offensive skill points”. With that metric you can rank which teams have the most to gain from adding an offensive piece and which teams are loaded on offense.

The Titans come out 3rd overall in that metric, with 93 points. That is behind only the LA Rams (best offense in the NFL once they got good coaches) and the Philadelphia Eagles (Super Bowl champs).

Now this is all up to if you believe Mike Clay. I think you should, he has done a good job analyzing rosters and breaking things down into numerical values the last year or so that I have been following him.

Everyone who watches the Titans knows that their biggest need isn’t center, it isn’t even on the offensive side of the ball. The biggest need is to get playmakers on defense.

This list reinforces that belief and shows that they have a lot of talent on the offensive side of the ball, they just need the right coaches to put those players in good position to make plays.

An upgrade in the coaching staff and better playmakers on the defense is what this team needed this year.  Jon Robinson went out and fixed one of those things already, now I think it is becoming fairly obvious that barring some massive talent falling down the draft the Titans are going to find some defensive playmakers this offseason.
