3 Reasonable expectations for Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill
So, what should Tennessee Titans fans expect of Ryan Tannehill in 2021?
How often do we look at first-round quarterbacks and say that their best years in the NFL actually came after they turned 30? Well, if you’re a Tennessee Titans fan, that might be here this train is headed with Ryan Tannehill.
No, he’ll never be Patrick Mahomes. Who is right? The good news is he’s never really been Blake Bortles or Drew Lock either. Tannehill spent seven seasons in Miami with the Dolphins, most of which were forgettable, but he’s been enjoying quite the renaissance he’s seen in Nashville.
It’s funny how that happens. Guys are labeled ‘busts’ and hear how they ‘suck’ season after season. Then, you find them a better situation, competent coaching, and a good supporting staff, and all of a sudden, it’s like someone flipped the switch.
Tannehill, in his first season with the Titans, won the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year Award and wound up on the Pro Bowl roster. Then, he had a better year in 2020 but didn’t receive the same type of attention. What does year three have in store? That’s an excellent question. Here’s an attempt to come up with a few answers. Here are three reasonable expectations for QB1 in 2021.
