John Ross III “breaking barriers”

In the last several years the Titans have not had a wide receiver that can take the top off a defense.The wide receiver core for the Titans has been middle of the pack at best and therefore the Titans need to pick a wide receiver with one of their first-round picks. This is a receiver rich draft class and over the next few days, I plan to discuss a few of these receivers, starting with John Ross III. Ross posted a 4.22 40 time, at the combine in Indie earlier this month. He garnered NFL scout attention and blew away the competition, and his 4.22 is the new record for the combine.

I think John Ross III will be a great replacement for Kendall Wright. He has speed, is 5’11, and weighs 188 pounds. Ross attended the University of Washington where after his junior year he declared for the NFL. He is popular with the public because he has great hands, and can run crisp routes. This man could be one of the fastest to come through the NFL. He has all the ability to make a great receiver for the Titans, they need to give Mariota a good slot receiver.

The Flyin’ Hawaiian – Marcus Mariota

The Titans have had high hopes since they drafted Marcus Mariota in 2014. He was the first college athlete to win the Hiesman trophy at the University of Oregon. During his second season with the Tennessee Titans he completed 276 of 451 passes, for a total of 3,426 yards and 26 touchdowns. The season ended abruptly for Mariota when he sustained a fractured fibula in the December loss to the Jaguars. According to head coach Mike Mularkey, “Mariota is still in a boot but is putting more weight on the injured leg with each day”. The main goal for the  Titans is to have a healthy Marcus Mariota under center in week 1 of the 2017 season, where they have a real chance to end the 10-year playoff drought.

Off Season 

Touring the Titans facilities during the off season gave me a chance to really take it all in. During the hustle and bustle of game day not many people take the time to look around at all the history that is shown around the different places inside the stadium and even over at the practice facility. I took the time to go around just to see what all they had and thought I would share some photos for you all to enjoy. 

Here we are at the Nissan Stadium last year to watch the Tennessee Titans bring home the win over the Cleveland Browns. The Titans grabbed the win, with a score of 28 to 26, on October 16, 2016, and we witness a great touchdown catch from Matthews during this game. The Titans fans were loud and on their feet during this game, as the Browns kept up with the titan’s tit for tat. This game could have gone either way, down to the wire and Mariota makes the play that brings the win for Titans.
