That stat about Gabbert's 9 head coaches and 8 offensive coordinators in his 8 seasons in the league is unreal. I mean, he's obviously not a great QB but talk about never really having a chance...

I’m pretty convinced we’re going to get one of SD/Bal and then have to go to KC. Indy should beat Hou IMO.

Titans are getting slammed so far but I have to say I kind of like Vrabel as a HC. Their QB situation is fucked though. The Duck is not that good and seems hurt a lot.

They regressed from last year. Or at best they were the same. I don’t know how that is a good reflection on Vrabel.

0 touches so far LOL
Never thought it would be the case, but Dion Lewis looks to me like a guy who got paid, and just didn't put the work in. He looks slower, bigger and nowhere near as agile and able to shake defenders as he was in New England. I wouldn't be surprised to see them move on from him before the end of that contract. He just hasn't looked very good all year.

Seriously. Its like the start of Alex Smith's career. Not saying Gabbert is Alex Smith but continuity is huge in developing any young athletes.

Hey it was within his right to do so but his comment about the Pats not paying looks more and more dumb. He was a JAG this year and the Pats missed him literally zero.

He's got some decent yards this year, but only 2 TDs. He's Defintely overpaid given his stats.

I thought they were a bad team who were fortunate to qualify for the playoffs last year. Credit to them for beating the Chiefs on the road in the playoffs though.

This year they beat the Pats, Cowboys, Eagles and Texans. Lost to the Chargers by a point. I think Vrabel has done a decent job. Going to be tough going forward though against Luck and Watson.

Luck has been great, but man that throw was three kinds of horrible. Bad in every way - plan, execution, result

Any team (except truly great or truly awful) can easily be +/- 2 wins. When I watch Titans games, they seem well coached. I didn’t think that last year.

I mean, this is why Bill never pays RBs.

I never thought Lewis would be the prima donna type either, but Bill knows

And the Titans give the mistake right back to them.

These returners need to either run up and catch the damn thing, or get away from it entirely.

True, they got outscored by 22 this year and were I think +23 going into today so they’ve improved slightly I guess. But it wasn’t some big leap. Nominal at best. Losses at Miami and Buffalo really hurt.
