The Tennessee Titans had another disappointing season finishing with a 3-13 record, just a small step forward from 2014’s 2-14, but Titans fans shouldn’t worry, because the future looks bright.
The Titans learned a lot this season. One of them is that they need to win the game in the fourth quarter. Last season, they lost six games within seven points, finishing those games out would’ve made a lowsy 3-13 record a 9-7 one. Big difference, right? With Mike Mularkey becoming the permanent head coach, that’s one thing he needs to address moving forward.
Two of their three wins was with Mularkey as interim head coach. They protected the quarterback much better than when Ken Whisenhunt was in charge, and were second in the league in fewest penalties per game.
With their new head coach, they could be a playoff team in the near future. The first overall draft pick obviously will not be going to the quarterback position, so they know what they have to do. They have a few weapons for their young star Marcus Mariota in Delanie Walker, Dorial Green-Beckham, and Kendall Wright, so they will look to add more weapons like a running back in the draft.
They will also look to add depth to the offensive line in free agency, as they gave up 54 sacks and took a hit from the injury bug. They showed positive signs for the future on defense, being ranked 13th to finish the season.
There is a lot of hope for this team. Their new general manager Jon Robinson will have a tough task, but will look to hit a home run with a mildly talented Tennessee Titans team.
