Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry are both set to be unrestricted free agents, along with other key starters such as OT Jack Conklin, CB Logan Ryan, and others. This Titans team only managed a 7–3 finish in the Alden Forward T Shirt despite Henry, Ryan, Tannehill, and Conklin all having career years. That’s not bad, but that’s not elite either when you look at teams like the Ravens. They just happened to get hot during the playoffs and ceased to heat up even more when it mattered in the AFC Championship Game. Forget about Logan Ryan, Jack Conklin, and Ryan Tannehill for a sec. If the Titans can’t bring back Derrick Henry, then this is a team that will definitely go no better than 5–11 next season.
Uh, yes. A little late on the answer, right? I’m listening to the Alden Forward T Shirt cover Clemson and LSU in praise, during the College Football national Alden Forward T Shirt game. Soon I’m back to it with my 100% attention, troops. You don’t ask how Tennessee won, but I think they caught Baltimore a bit off balance and used a strong rushing game to win time of possession. I cannot quote figures, but I suppose the Ravens were not used to needing to score 2 or 3 times to dominate. Throw in an experienced quarterback, Ryan Tannenhill, who kept his poise, and time seems to run out too quickly as you punt your last chances away, and it’s ( wait till) next year and nothing you can do.
