Between The Posts: Pro Sports Jealousy

Your nightly OT open thread.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Super Bowl 49 ended with a bang, and at least from where I'm standing, was a great contest for fans of the game. A lot has already been said in the wake of the Patriots victory, including the importance of the QB position and the proper and effective utilization of specialized role players to compete at the highest levels of the NFL.

The Tennessee Titans, quite obviously, lack these elements at present. That isn't to say that they won't in a year or two, and in a league where turnarounds can happen quickly, there's little telling what this team will look like next year. There will be plenty of changes; of that we can be sure, but it will be in the manner in which the coaches adapt and change as well that will certainly shape the fortunes of the 2015 Titans.

As a fan of one of the NFL's lower echelon clubs, watching the well-oiled Patriots and the explosive, hard-hitting Seahawks go out there and put on (for the most part) complete performances can be hard. In the players, it births discontent, and this has already been seen throughout Tennessee's roster. In fans, it inspires a jealousy not found elsewhere in pro sports, for me anyway.

But short of seeing what the team does to remedy their many ills over the Summer and beyond, all we can do is sit and wait.
