Shake off the rough start for the Indianapolis Colts because they still play in the AFC South

Everyone and their mother knows that the AFC South is the worst division in football. Most of that can be attributed to Houston, Tennessee’s and Jacksonville’s inability to find a franchise quarterback. Heading into the first division game of the year against Tennessee I wondered just how many different quarterbacks have the Titans had since they became the Titans in 1999. Keep...

TBT: First of Peyton Manning's many playoff losses came at hands of McNair, Titans

This week, the Colts visit the Titans and two young quarterbacks (Andrew Luck and Marcus Mariota) will square off in what could be a matchup we see for the better part of the next two decades. But this week's TBT takes us back to January 2000, when the new millennium was just 16 days old and Peyton Manning was in just his second year facing off with Steve McNair in the divisional...

All That and a Bag of Mail

It's Friday, time for the mailbag.  Our beaver pelt trader of the week is Marcus Mariota. I don't remember the last time I was this in love with an athlete. This is what happens when you root for an NFL team with an awful past five years at the position: the best quarterback in franchise history, Steve McNair, was murdered by his mistress, the next great superstar quarterback, Vince...

25 Days of Football: No. 8 Marcus Mariota

 Over the past decade, the Tennessee Titans have been a lot like the Cleveland Browns in that they’ve lacked stability at quarterback. Ever since Steve McNair was traded in 2005, the Titans have struggled to field a winning team and their last playoff appearance (2008) now seems like distant history. The Titans first tried replacing McNair with Texas superstar Vince Young, and...

Tennessee Titans: Best QB in franchise history, Pt. 2

Last week, I began a ranking of the top ten quarterbacks in the history of the Tennessee Titans franchise. While the rankings for the tenth best quarterback to the third best quarterback were relatively simple, the comparison between Warren Moon and Steve McNair to determine who deserved the number one spot was fairly difficult. First, we must consider that both Moon and McNair...

Watch: Steve McNair campaigns for the Heisman

The year was 1994. Steve McNair out of tiny Alcorn State was putting up prolific numbers, even by today's pass-crazed stats. McNair threw for 5,377 yards, completing 356-of-612 passes and threw for a career-high 47 touchdowns that season. He also ran for 908 yards and nine touchdowns.Those numbers weren't enough to get him the Heisman, as he finished third (Penn State's Ki-Jana...

Remembering quarterback Steve McNair

Steve McNair was an elite level quarterback who lived up to his billing as the third overall pick in the 1995 NFL Draft by the Houston Oilers who became the Tennessee Titans, which was at the time the earliest an African-american quarterback was ever selected. “Air” McNair didn’t go to a powerhouse school, in fact he we went to Alcorn State University in what is now known...

Tarkenton, Minnesota quarterbacks of past sound off on football preferences

Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton wasn't as picky as some of today's quarterbacks. Because of that, Tarkenton would have never found himself at the center of a scandal such as "Deflategate." Those great Minnesota Vikings teams of the 1970s thrived in simpler times. "Just grab the ball and throw it," Tarkenton told Chip Scoggins of the Star-Tribune. "All of our footballs were...
