Mike and I were talking earlier about how weird the 2019 Titans are. You have a quarterback that has shown flashes of being great but has been underwhelming most of the time. You have a running back that ended the season looking like one of the best backs in the league but really struggled before that. You have an offensive line that should be much improved but will be missing Taylor Lewan for the first month and Jack Conklin who really struggled last year but now it looks like it was because he wasn’t healthy.
There are so many things that we have questions about. Should that scare us heading into the 2019 season? How likely is it that all of the questions are answered in a positive way for the Titans? But that is not what this post is about.
This post is about the things that we are 100% sure about for the 2019 season. I have 2:
The first one is that Brett Kern is really good. Kern came here in 2009 after getting cut by the Broncos and has turned into the best punter in the league. The man puts on a clinic every time he is on the field. That is an extremely important weapon for a team that wants to play the field position game (which hopefully isn’t what the Titans are in 2019).
Secondly, I am sure that the inside linebacker group is one of the best in the league. Rashaan Evans looked like a stud at the end of they year last year. Jayon Brown came on as one of the biggest playmakers for this team. Wesley Woodyard continued to be a solid player in the middle of this defense.
That is about it for me. What are you 100% confident in with the 2019 Titans?
