Titans Must Draft Marcus Mariota

The Tennessee Titans are flat out awful. Anyone who had to sit through yesterday's toilet bowl against the New York Jets knows exactly what I'm talking about. It's not just that the Titans are awful it's that they're hopeless. NFL parity typically dictates that even the worst teams have at least one star on them. The Titans have no stars.

Jets top Titans in expected slopfest, 16-11

With a pair of 2-11 teams facing off at LP Field, it seemed like ugly football was on the menu. Ugly football was what the Tennessee Titans and the New York Jets delivered. Contrary to what could have happened, though, it was a surprisingly compelling slopfest. Neither team led by more than five points at any time in the game, and it went down to the final play. The Titans had two...
