Better be worth it. Really hope this year wasn’t just a flash in the pan. Knowing the Titans recent history he will most likely underwhelm for the next 4 years. And we will rattle off some 8-8 seasons. #titanup
At least with the 17 game season there won't be any 8-8 seasons unless a tie happens.

He’s only getting 17 million in year 1 and 24 million in year 2. I’m betting there’s probably an easy out after 2 years. We also save 13 million in cap room by not tagging him. This is the smartest decision we could’ve made.
This doesn’t include the $20mil signing bonus, this is basically a 2 year contract.

Structurally, this is a good deal. Also a practical one considering you’re not replicating his production with anything in this draft. Can’t please everyone, but this was another good move by Robinson IMO.
Yep. Unfortunately they put too much on RTs shoulders against the chiefs
Agree with both of you. J-Rob got it done and I am pleased. Even Brady needed a supporting cast as was obvious this season. No Gronk, no WR over the top - no SB appearance. Titans need a playmaker or two on both sides to get there, but the nucleus and commitment is now there. RT fits everything they are trying to do on O.

Defense and Henry were the reasons we beat Ravens and Patriots. Tannehill did very little in the playoffs but he didn’t have to in the two wins.
He wasn’t asked to really. But I’m not going to ignore that he did make some huge plays, particularly in Baltimore. The throw to Jonnu in the corner for a td was huge, the Raymond bomb for td, turning that qb run where he appeared to be stuffed into a td, that huge 3rd down conversion towards the end to the tight end which allowed us to bleed more minutes. Not saying he was an all star, but saying he did very little is dumb imo.

He literally made one throw in the Baltimore game for the TD. The Smith TD was all about Smith making an outstanding catch. Again Henry and defense are the primary reasons we won. Chiefs shutdown Henry and Tannehill didn’t do much of anything when it mattered.

Ryan Tannehill's cap hits rank:

2020: QB #8
2021: QB #8
2022: QB #4

IMO, he’s not a Top 10 QB in the league. Granted, he’ll fall down the list after Dak, Cousins and Mahomes get extensions

The 45 yard td to Raymond doesn’t count lol? Or the rushing touchdown he had, which btw was a td because of his effort. He was stuffed at first. And even the jonnu td, yeah it was a great catch but it was also a perfectly placed pass. Like it or not, tannehill has a hand in 21 out of the titans 24 points that game. Trying to argue he did nothing but make one pass that game is stupid.

The one throw he made was the Raymond TD. Dude was a game manager in the playoffs and didn’t do jack against the Chiefs. Hope he balls out next year and in the playoffs if we make it.

I think this Tannehill deal is better than what a 2-3 year TB12 deal would look like.

But I think it's too much for Tannehill. Say what you want about highly paid RBs, but it seemed like Henry carried the offense this year. I don't think it's a horrible deal, but a little costly. Is Tannehill worth more than Henry? For the next 2-3 years?

Well ESPN gave the deal a C-

Tannehill continued to take a gaudy sack rate for the Titans last season, going down 9.8% of the time, which doesn't help his chances of staying healthy. He posted the league's best QBR when unpressured but dropped all the way to 30th in QBR when defenses got pressure.

In 2019, he led all passers in yards per attempt by a full yard and posted the eighth-best era-adjusted yards per attempt since the merger. He posted the best passer rating of any quarterback on play-action in the past 10 years, with a nearly perfect mark of 147.3.
