Todd Downing just doesn’t seem to understand…much.
Just for starters, Downing came into the season with promises of continuity before orchestrating a disaster against the Arizona Cardinals. In his debut as a play-caller, he turned the Tennessee Titans from the offense that called the most play-action passes and scored 30 points per game, into the offense that used the least amount of play-action passes and struggled to get a touchdown.
Tennessee Titans fans should be praying for more articles about how he should be a head coach somewhere because his style of offense doesn’t fit the way this roster is constructed at all.
One of his biggest problems is he doesn’t seem to continue to do what is working. This was a big reason why the Titans lost on Sunday.
The Houston Texans had the worst rushing defense in the NFL and the Tennessee Titans had a lot of success running the all. Adrian Peterson averaged nearly 4.5 yards per carry and Dontrell Hillard averaged 5 yards per carry.
Despite that success, the two only combined for 16 rushes.
For reference, Ryan Tannehill threw the ball 52 times.
In a storm.
Without his top-3 receivers, his top tight end, or his third-down running back.
Get this guy a plane ticket out of here as soon as possible.
