Maybe Philip Rivers is still an option for the Indianapolis Colts? Who knows? It seems almost ridiculous to make these types of proclamations during the first week of August, but it doesn’t feel like it’s ridiculous to state the Tennessee Titans are completely capable of dominating a division that, to be frank, has more than its fair share of issues.

Oh, you disagree? Let’s do a little inventory, shall we?

The Tennessee Titans are completely capable of sweeping the AFC South.

At the risk of sounding disrespectful, how many of you can remember consistently that David Culley is the head coach of the Houston Texans. Now, this may have been corrected by now, but at the time of this story being written, if you were to go Google and search for ‘who is the head coach of the Texans’, you wouldn’t even get Coach Culley. You’d get Romeo Crennel.

While that may not be evidence of how far Houston has fallen, maybe the fact that Deshaun Watson took snaps with the scout team at some of the Texans’ earlier practices during camp will convince you.

Then, there’s the Jacksonville Jacksonville Jaguars. Are you ready to anoint Urban Meyer and Trevor Lawrence as the second coming of Bill Walsh and Joe Montana? They have the potential to be a great coach/quarterback tandem

After two sessions of Colts on-field practices, Carson Wentz was already injured. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Wentz is out indefinitely with a foot injury on July 30th. That was followed by Ian Rapoport’s statement on the final day of July that “Carson Wentz plans to try to rest and rehab his foot injury over the next few days rather than have immediate surgery”.

Rapoport also states that if all goes well, Wentz may be ready by Week 1. if it doesn’t, “the answer may be surgery”. Now, while Carson Wentz is gifted, you’ve all seen his deterioration over the past two seasons, and while Ryan Tannehill doesn’t possess as much natural talent, he’s definitely the best quarterback in the AFC South right now.

Even with Wentz, the Colts should have been Tennessee’s only competition in the division anyway, but as it stands right now, Jacob Eason and Sam Ellinger are sharing snaps for the Colts right now, and trust us when we tell you this. That isn’t going well at all.
