Carthon was one of my favorites but I'm having second thoughts after reading stuff like this...
Titans need a complete overhaul of Offensive philosophy and this sounds like a reinforcement of the same old pound the rock to set up 3rd and long passes.
I understand your point, but I don't think these guys are beholden to any single offensive philosophy. If they had an elite passing QB, we would probably center our offense around that. If we have a generational talent at RB paired with a less-than-elite QB (which includes Tannehill even though he is decent), we are likely going to emphasize the running game. Coaches can only work with what they've got.
I would love a shift in philosophy to modernize the offense, mainly because I believe it is more fun to watch and is simply a better brand of football. But good QB's are damn hard to find. Gotta remember where this franchise has been, post-McNair it took us 15 years just to find a decent starter in Tannehill.
I don't expect Ran Carthon to come in and work miracles. I just expect him to improve the roster enough to at least give Vrabel a chance to maximize whatever combination of talent we are able to cobble together.
