Delanie Walker not happy with Tennessee Titans odd QB decision tweet
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker took issue with a tweet from the team’s Twitter page about the looming quarterback decision.
The Tennessee Titans’ official Twitter account posted an odd tweet about the looming decision for who would start at quarterback in Week 7, and veteran tight end Delanie Walker took issue with it.
The tweet, which was posted from the Titans’ official Twitter account, said “#Titans to decide between QBs Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill” and “Decision in next 24 hours” while sporting a picture of Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill side-by-side.
Check it out.
When Walker got a hold of it, he voiced his displeasure with the unusual tweet.
Former Titans wide receiver Derrick Mason also weighed in.
I thought the tweet was odd at the time because it’s almost like the Titans are previewing a new episode from a reality TV show that has a major decision being made or turning point occurring.
Of course, that is kind of what is going on here, but when you consider this tweet is from the actual team, it is somewhat in poor taste.
As Mason points out, it leads to picking sides and splits the fan base apart even further. Also, it feels like an attempt to get the fan base pumped up for a situation that is a direct result of the team’s failure.
The other side of that argument is that Titans Online’s goal is entertainment and to get views, and what better way to do that than with a tweet like this.
This approach to posting a tweet for an article involving a quarterback decision just isn’t something you see every day from a team — or at least it’s not one that I’ve ever seen.
On Monday, head coach Mike Vrabel stated that the team would make its decision about who the Week 7 starter is on either Monday night or Tuesday morning, and would let everyone else know shortly thereafter.
With how badly things went for Mariota and the offense in Week 6, you can almost be assured it’ll be Tannehill. After all, this team hit absolute rock bottom against the Broncos on Sunday and the offense did improve with Tannehill behind center in less than two quarters of action.
For now, we sit and wait to see what the actual decision will be, however in the mean time we can allow the Titans’ official Twitter page to keep us on the edge of our seats.
