Yesterday we opened the approval poll series
with Amy Adams Strunk. You can go over there and vote in that one if you haven’t yet. This morning we are looking at Titans general manager Jon Robinson.This one is a little bit tricker than AAS in my opinion. There is no doubt Robinson has improved the overall quality of this roster since he got here. He inherited one of the worst rosters in the NFL and has made the team competitive. With that being said Navy Kenny Vaccaro Jersey , there are some places where he hasn’t been good enough. His first draft he had 3 second round picks. That’s a great way to build a young nucleus that is going to set your franchise up for a 5-8 year run of success. Those 3 picks netted Kevin Dodd (no longer in the NFL), Austin Johnson (not any good), and Derrick Henry (looks like he might be what they build this offense around next season). That’s not enough.Now, with THAT being said, the Titans were able to go 9-7 in a year where they lost their best offensive player in the first game of the season, didn’t have their starting right tackle healthy for most of the year, and lost two of their best defensive players down the stretch. That means there is depth on the roster. Robinson gets the credit for that.He also gets credit for hiring Mike Vrabel Youth Jonnu Smith Jersey , who I think proved this season he has the skill set to be a really good NFL coach. Vrabel navigated one of the most bizarre seasons that I have ever seen and ended with a winning record.I think you have to vote “approve” here, but I can understand a counter argument. The Titans are still breathing at 6-6, but it’s going to take a strong December, along with plenty of help assuming they don’t win out, to make a playoff push. That push continues on Thursday night with the Jacksonville Jaguars in town. It’s now been over 700 days since the Jaguars have beaten the Titans. Tennessee found a way down in Jacksonville earlier this season, inserting Marcus Mariota into the game after Blaine Gabbert left with a concussion. Mariota, playing with limited feeling in his throwing hand Navy Kamalei Correa Jersey , kept the Titans afloat while the defense won the Titans the game, 9-6.Mariota is now healthy and now the Jaguars have made a change at quarterback. Cody Kessler has replaced Blake Bortles under center. Jacksonville won their first attempt with Kessler starting, thanks to their defense. The Jaguars pitched a shutout against Indianapolis, winning 6-0 last Sunday. That defensive group is the primary area of concern for the Titans. They’ve had their down moments this season, but they still rank inside the top five in points allowed and yards allowed. The Titans should be able to handle their business defensively, but can this inconsistent offense score on the Jaguars? The good news is, it probably won’t take many points. The total has been set at a measly 38 for Thursday’s game. That number has already been driven down to 37.5. Tennessee opened as 4.5 point favorites Youth Rashaan Evans Jersey , that number is now down to four.The home favorite on Thursday night this year is a staggering 8-1-1 against the spread. It’s tough to envision Kessler being able to do enough to pull of the upset here. The Jaguars will get Leonard Fournette back, but I’m not sure how much that actually moves the needle.Full disclosure here — all of that could be meaningless if the Titans decide not to show up. This is the same team that dug a 16-0 hole last week against the Jets, after all. However, I think they’re good enough defensively to win Thursday, as long as the offense isn’t working against them.
