3. Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans are another team that has an established quarterback, but unlike the previous two, a new head coach is taking over this year. Mike Vrabel was hired to replace Mike Mularkey even after the Titans mounted an impressive comeback win in the playoffs against the Kansas City Chiefs. They were blown out by the Patriots the following week.

Marcus Mariota has been a solid starting quarterback since taking over and there isn’t any reason to believe that will change in the new regime. He has completed 62 percent of his passes for 9,476 yards, 58 touchdowns, 34 interceptions and an 88.6 quarterback rating in three seasons. He’s also added 913 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.

However, he has yet to play a full season, missing one game in each of the last two years due to injury. The fact that he is a runner always leaves him subject to injury, so the Titans have to shore up their backup.

Currently they have career journey man Brandon Weeden, who has been below average his entire career, Alex Tanney, who spent most of his six (!!!) seasons on various practice squads, including most of his stint with the Titans since 2015, and Tyler Ferguson, an undrafted 2017 free agent who spent part of the 2017 season on the Titans’ practice squad before being released.

None of those quarterbacks scream stability. The Titans were one of 13 teams that went to both the University of San Diego and Texas A&M Pro Days. Clearly they are doing their homework on Johnny Football.
