"Hordes of Titans fans hammered your friendly writer on THE TWITTER last week for not having their team in the top five. Well, OK … Look, back-to-back wins over the Jags and Eagles is nice. But A) the Titans swept Jacksonville just last season, so let’s not pretend the Week 3 victory was some kind of unprecedented achievement; and B) Philly doesn’t exactly look like a world-beating defending champion in the early goings of this season. Assessing Tennessee: One game aside, this team has a passing-game problem. Put in the lexicon of other NFL pundits: a quarterback problem. The tally on Sunday came in at 14-of-26 for 129 yards, with zero touchdowns and a pick. Hey, dem’s some spectacular numbers. For 1934. Next up: vs. the Ravens."
This is just a poor job of understanding football honestly.
Look, I get being upset that people were mean to you on THE TWITTER, but it is foolish to diminish what the Titans did before this week because you are upset.
The first point he brings up is that the Titans shouldn’t act impressed because they beat the Jaguars because it happened last year? That is really interesting, because before the game all fans heard was that the Titans had no chance.

Not only is that true, but the Jaguars are 6th on his power rankings so it obviously means something that the only teams to beat Jacksonville are KC at home and Tennessee in Jacksonville.
But alright that is fine. You can explain that away as a team playing up to division rivals or whatever. The big problem is this, here is a quote from the Vikings breakdown he had this week:
"Kirk Cousins is playing out of his freakin’ mind, man. No matter the pressure — including a whole bunch right in his grill — Cousins (30 for 37, 301 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT) delivered the ball on time and on point Sunday in Philadelphia"
So wait Cousins is playing out of his mind right? 30 of 37, 301 yards (8.1 YPA), 1 TD, O INT
But wait, this is Mariota’s stat line against the same team except they had a healthy Derek Barnett: 30 of 43, 344 yards (8 YPA) , 3 total TDs, 1 INT.
So the Titans have a quarterback problem, but Cousins is playing out of his mind with a worse statline and with more help from the best receiving tandem in the NFL?
Whew, that is just a bad take.
