Titans target report week 4: The leader is finally who it should be

New, comments

Delanie Walker leads the Titans in targets for the first time in 2016.

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The passing game is bad right now. Marcus Mariota has struggled early in this season. I am tempted to put the majority of the blame on the play calling. The coaching staff doesn’t do anything to get him into a rhythm, but there are throws he isn’t making right now that he needs to make. The offense isn’t going to be good until one of those things changes.

Delanie Walker led the team in targets yesterday with 8. The bad news is those 8 targets only turned into 2 catches for 34 yards. Tajae Sharpe was second with 7 targets. His targets resulted in 2 catches for 15 yards. Woof.

Andre Johnson turned 5 targets into 3 catches for 33 yards. Kendall Wright had 3 targets in his first action of 2016- 2 catches for 14 yards.

Rishard Matthews had the biggest day of the group with 2 targets and 2 catches for 84 yards. The 60 yard completion he caught was the best deep ball I have seen Mariota throw since he got here. He usually throws it flat, but he put air under that one and allowed Matthews to run under it.

DeMarco Murray saw a season low 2 targets and had 2 catches for 24 yards. I continue to be pleasantly surprised by his skills as a receiver.

Rishard Matthews 20
