Maybe we need to see what an offense can do to help out a defense that doesn't consistently go 5-6 straight 3 and outs? How about an offense that actaully extends a 2nd half lead?

Attempt the fewest passes, end with the fewest yards. Not rocket science.

If you look at yards per attempt, you'll see that Tebow edged out Cassel, Ponder, Painter, Bradford, McCoy, and Gabbert.

Or in other words, almost every young prospect in the league. And as an added bonus delivered the best rushing attack in football.

How much of the standard playbook was not even available because he can't do a three step drop and a quick out or throw a quick slant over the middle or a button hook? I charted every play in two games and Tebow threw one, quick button hook to Royal over the middle. And that one, Royal had to fall on because it was so low. No YAC. How many drops were from receivers running all over the field trying to make something up? That doesn't show up in the stats sheet.

Tebow is exciting to watch. No doubt. So is a demolition derby.

How do you plan ahead when so many plays are made up on the run?
Sure, I agree. I just think we have enough evidence with these players playing with a different, conventioanl QB to know that they don't suck BECAUSE of the QB. They mostly just suck.

Yards per Attempt drops with more completions....if a QB goes 2-20 for 100 yards hes got a 50 a completion....not rocket science..

i see you left Dalton and Cam off there...2 rookies

You guys are literally arguing nonsense. It's both...it's everything last year from an oline/QB/defense perspective

I still don't understand why you people think Tennesse has some advantage...they don't.

I've still never had anyone show me a play where Cam Newton was throwing out of a 2WR set.
Unfortunately Fox may not be the best coach for Tebow, I agree with you on this. That being said, they absolutely changed the offense the fit his style of play, this you cannot reasonably deny. As for going with 3+ WRs sets to fit Tebow's style, we shall see if this happens if Manning goes elswhere. Again, I'd love for Tebow to work out, the question is can he work in Fox's system?

Agreed. Its just classic managing expectations by being negative

Titans had a better record than denver....better RB....better Oline....better WRs....better Defense..in a division where manning knows everything about the teams in it.....he sees 2 easy wins against the colts....titans also have a lunatic owner willing to give Manning millions upon millions of dollars and shares of ownership..

He wont be able to work in any system until he learns to read defenses and not panic when his first option is covered. I love his moxie, i love his skill when hes confident, but he never improved upon the mental side of his game all season. Maybe he's just not incredibly football smart, or maybe its something that comes with time.

"A" stands for Attempt. 2 for 20 for 100 yards would be a 5 ypa.

It's probably the most 'fair' single QB stat there is.

Better RB yes, if they are better anywhere else, its marginal.

I think Tenn's advantage is that he went to school there and his wife is from there. Thats it. I strongly believe they dont have any real football advantage.

That sounds like a bunch of subjective crapola to me. They don't have better anything than us. And what about Peytons perfprmance over the past 10 years says to you that he'd have trouble learning any team anywhere at anytime? None. He's literally beaten everyone. So I find it hard to believe he'll make a life changing decision based on playing the Colts twice a year. Or playing in a dome. Or playing with different personal. Or playing for a dollar amount.

I would think the in-laws angle gives Denver the edge, not Tennessee.

If it's down to that then there is no contest for me. Denver is a mile better place to live than anywhere in Tennesse.

Our o-line's great at run blocking and average to slightly above average at pass blocking imo. That's probably good enough for top 5 but it's not like having the Pats' line back there in terms of pass protection.

Plus, first year starters tend to hold on to the ball a little longer, especially ones touted to be 3-4 year projects.

Manning gets rid of the ball so quick that'll make our o-line seem like the best in the league. Manning protects the line with his study and preperation.

Tenn Den
Points per game 21st 25th
Total yards game 17th 23rd
Rush yards game 31st 1st
pass yards game 12th 31st

Defense
Points per game 8th 24th
total yards game 18th 20th
rush yards game 24th 22nd
pass yards game 14th 18th

titans lead in 6 of 8 catagories.....clearly not subjective.
