There’s still anger in the air following a disappointing Tennessee Titans loss.

On Sunday, the Tennessee Titans suffered an absolutely embarrassing, horrendous defeat at the hands of the New York Jets. Titan fans, deservedly so, took to social media to vent after that abysmal display. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill spent a large portion of the day lying on his back.

As a matter of fact, through 4 weeks, Tannehill is the most sacked QB in the league. David Quessenberry was awful, and should probably not start another game. Taylor Lewan killed at least three drives with costly penalties or by allowing Ryan Tannehill to get slammed to the turf.

Derrick Henry was awesome again, finishing the day with 33 carries for 157 yards and one touchdown. Keep in mind, that happened WITH the offensive line playing about as poorly as you’ll ever see an NFL line play.

While impressive but also depressing, Jeremy McNichols (a backup RB) was the team’s leading receiver with eight catches for 74 yards. While it’s true that the team was without its leading receivers in Julio Jones and A.J. Brown, there is absolutely no excuse for how anemic the offense was on Sunday.

That’s probably the first thing that most of us thought about when the game wrapped on Sunday. Here are two more takeaways from a nightmare loss that we need to get over and move on from as quickly as possible.
