1. Replace Dennis Daley and possibly Aaron Brewer
The Tennessee Titans’ biggest mistake each week is that Mike Vrabel continues to allow Dennis Daley and Aaron Brewer to start for this football team.
This was such an easy situation for Mike Vrabel and Keith Carter and they have gotten no criticism for completely screwing it up. Everyone wants to point to GM Jon Robinson and ask why he hasn’t fixed the offensive line, but the question they should be asking is why the coaching staff can’t see the solution right in front of them.
In the preseason, Dillon Radunz and Nicholas Petit-Frere battled it out for the right tackle spot. While the rookie won the battle in the end, there were several weeks where it seemed like Radunz was going to lock up that starting job.
Several people looked at Radunz’s body of work and assumed that he would be the heir apparent to Taylor Lewan at left tackle in 2023. Instead, the Titans coaches chose Dennis Daley to start at left tackle and never looked back.
Since then, Daley has been the worst offensive tackle in the NFL and Dillon Radunz has made starts at both guard positions and has been the team’s best pass blocker.
The Tennessee Titans’ coaches have been watching Dennis Daley get beaten on repeat every single week, and they have been watching their second-round pick from 2021 (who played his entire collegiate career at left tackle) win week in and week out, and they can’t put that puzzle together.
If they are still unconvinced that Dillon Radunz deserves a shot at left tackle, and they can’t get an appointment with their optometrist before Sunday, then at the very least they could try to find someone on a practice squad with left tackle experience.
In the event that happens, that doesn’t mean that Radunz should stay on the bench. Left guard Aaron Brewer has had some up-and-down moments this year, but the downs are becoming more and more evident and if there wasn’t an issue at left tackle we would all be talking about the issue at left guard.
