If we learned anything this week, it’s that Tennessee sports is still going through it’s mediocre phase. For the past few years, it was talks that the Grizzlies and Predators were set to bring Tennessee its first ever professional championship. Now, it seems we are very far from ever seeing that.
The Memphis Grizzlies are as inconsistent as they come. They have a habit of playing down to their opponent instead of playing their ball. Many people are buzzing about the “end” of the Grit ‘N Grind era, and, sadly, it’s true. The Grizzlies’ lack of three point shooting causes them to fall behind in games that they have the capability of winning. Don’t you think it’s time to address that?
The Nashville Predators, much like their neighbors across the river, has a habit of not finishing games. They’d have a 1-0 or 2-0 lead heading into the third period, then some how lose the game. The Predators record would look much different if just a few small things hadn’t happened. Sad, but true, and scarily similar to the next team in this article.
Good news, the Tennessee Titans are on pace to get that number one overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Bad news, Marcus Mariota suffered an MCL injury in the 33-16 loss to the New England Patriots and will receive an MRI on Monday. It’s probably a safe bet he will not return the rest of the season. Once again the Titans could face the Houston Texans with Zach Mettenberger instead of their starting quarterback.

Your Questions Answered
@crumpdaddy_99 asks: Why do the Titans suck so bad?
Interesting question. Good one, though. We all believed that the problem was the quarterback position. We drafted Marcus Mariota and we improved by one game. Now, everyone is blaming the bad performance on multiple different things. Coaching, running game, receivers, offensive line, secondary, and the ownership. So pretty much the answer to your question is no one knows. Not even the Titans themselves. This off-season will be full of cleaning and repairing. Hopefully we can improve atleast one more game next season. 4-12 anybody?
@grant_slover7 asks: What has happened to the Predators?
I think the biggest reason why the Predators are not doing as great is because of injuries. They spent a few games without Pekka Rinne as goalie and had some of their key scorers out. Another reason would be the inability to finish games. If they can close out games better, this hockey team would be scary.
