What to take from today's game: offense

Some positives.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

With the season over there will be plenty of time to look at the Tennessee Titans as a whole. However, before we get there, let's take some time to look at this game and any positives we learned.

David Cobb

Cobb looked very good in his first game as a lead running back. Sure, you could make the argument that the Indianapolis Colts are not a good defense at all. However, if you have been watching the Titans then you know that these running backs have had to run behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league all year.

While I don't think Cobb is a superstar, I think this is the perfect year to grab a bridge running back in free agency that has some wiggle like Matt Forte, and then draft his replacement in the running back heavy 2017 NFL Draft.

Tre McBride

The rookie receiver didn't do anything through the air, but he did some other nice things. When he was handed the ball on a reverse he ended up with a nice run that should be a wrinkle in the future. Mostly, his impact was felt on special teams where even when he was held he was making it hard on opposing kick returners as a gunner.

Dorial Green-Beckham

DGB is coming along in a really nice way and if you are a Titans fan, he is one of the glimmers of hope that you have to cling to. The rookie wide receiver looked great and once he and Marcus Mariota are on the field at the same time, this team is going to look much different through the air.

Delanie Walker

Walker the most underrated tight end in the NFL. After being such a force all season, he showed today that even if you know he is getting the ball every down you still can't stop him. If you are an NFL OC and you like to use vertical TEs that can also block (Hue Jackson and Josh McDaniels) then you will love him.
