"“I look at this offense and I just say, can Marcus Mariota finally have that consist season where he is not really along for the ride but he is winning them games.”"
Well. Alright, just a reminder that Marcus Mariota is maybe the best “clutch” QB in the NFL right now? Don’t get me wrong, there isn’t even an argument to be made that the 2018 version of Marcus Mariota was a top-10 QB in the NFL for the first three quarters of games.
However, there is something to be said for being able to drive your team down and put them ahead in the final minutes of a game. That is exactly what he did against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills (though they somehow got a last second field goal to win), Philadelphia Eagles, and New York Jets.

That isn’t even bringing up how the Titans almost beat the L.A. Chargers in London thanks to a last minute Marcus Mariota drive only to see them decide not to give Derrick Henry the ball for the 2-point attempt.
I definitely understand being frustrated with this offense…trust me. However, is this really even the same offense as last year?
-40% of the offensive line has been replaced and that is before we see if there are any changes at center or right tackle.
-The Titans added one of the best slot receivers, Matt Miller‘s WR1 from the 2019 NFL Draft and now have a healthy Delanie Walker back who averages nearly 900 yards per season with Marcus Mariota.
-Derrick Henry finally found his groove at the end of last season with a historic December.
-Even if Marcus Mariota gets hurt this year they have a boarderline starting caliber QB behind him in Ryan Tannehill.
Like I said, I get the concerns on offense but there is no reason to assume that they will be worse than last year. What loses would make you think that?
