The Tennessee Titans are about to have an unprecedented season on offense

Since OTAs have started, new Tennessee Titans HC Brian Callahan has been very complimentary of the team's running backs.

At one point Callahan even said that running backs were the position group that was the most excited about heading into the offseason/preseason.

"Those guys are the ones I'm probably- of all of the groups that we have I think those guys are the most exciting for me."

Callahan is right to be excited about Tyjae Spears and Tony Pollard. That duo could be one of the most explosive tandems in the NFL if Spears continues to do what he did as a rookie and if Pollard is fully healthy after recovering from an injury last season.

However, that quote is starting to get passed around a little too much and people are getting the idea that maybe the Titans won't veer away from the run-heavy identity that has defined them throughout franchise history.

After looking at Callahan's history in the NFL, I would pump the brakes on that. In fact, Jared Smola has a great stat that suggests that the Titans might even be one of the most pass-heavy teams in the NFL this season. In that article that everyone should read, Smola says:

"Four of new HC Brian Callahan’s five Bengals offenses ranked top-12 in pass rate, including a trio of top-6 finishes. (The Titans never finished higher than 24th in pass rate in six seasons under HC Mike Vrabel.)"

This team is going to pass the ball, and they are going to pass the ball in a volume that we haven't seen in a long time. Speaking of things that we haven't seen in a long time, the Titans might have their most talented passing attack with Will Levis throwing to the veteran trio of DeAndre Hopkins, Tyler Boyd, and Calvin Ridley.

Things can get a little hyperbolic in May and June, but all of the signs are pointing towards the Tennessee Titans becoming a pass-heavy team with one of the most proven groups of pass catchers in the NFL.

The offensive line is a question mark, but it should be noted that the offensive line is now coached by the best line coach in the NFL and the left tackle is a 21-year-old top 10 draft pick, the left guard is a 22-year-old top 11 draft pick, and they have one of the best and highest-paid centers in the NFL who is just 26-years-old. So there are reasons to be optimistic about a turnaround.

If a few things go right, the Titans could have a team that is driven by one of the best passing offenses in the NFL. How many times have Tennessee fans been able to say that in franchise history?
