Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill is already proving that he has what it takes to lead the Titans’ offense after two weeks into the season.
The Tennessee Titans have started the season 2-0. After an offseason of doubt, Ryan Tannehill is proving his doubters wrong. He’s proving that he can lead an offense and not have to rely on Derrick Henry to score all of the Titans’ points.
After last season, Tannehill shouldn’t have to prove that he can be an elite quarterback because he proved that he was able to lead the Titans after taking them to the AFC Championship.
In Tannehill’s Week 1 win against the Broncos, Tannehill threw for 249 yards and two touchdowns with a QBR of 97.9. He followed that up with an even better performance in the Titans’ win against the Jaguars; he threw for 239 yards and four touchdowns with a QBR of 145.7.
He hasn’t been perfect in the first two games of the season, but he’s been pretty dang close. At least, he has been pretty close to perfect in the red-zone.
Against Jacksonville, when Tannehill got the Titans into the red-zone, he was perfect. Tannehill went 4-for-4 for 44 yards and four touchdowns.
Tannehill is 11-4 as the Titans’ starting quarterback since taking over the offense last season. The Titans’ offense is new and improved, and it’s mostly thanks to Tannehill. He gave the Titans’ offense new life, and the offense has seemed like a completely different team.
He’s a tough quarterback and he’s not afraid to sling the ball, even if he knows that he’s going to take a hit for doing it.
I don’t think Tannehill is satisfied or done with his improvements for this season. The Titans have a struggling Vikings team up next on the schedule, and if Tannehill wants to prove that he is the quarterback that Titans fans know him, he will put it on the Vikings this Sunday.
