In the last 16 years under Jeff Fisher the Titans have had just 6 winning seasons. The last two years they have hovered around .500 going 8-8 in 2009 and dropping to 6-10 in 2010.
It would be real easy to lay all the blame at the feet of the quarterback, but the fact of the mater is, with the exception of Chris Johnson, they are just an average team.
The Titans were -4 in Turnover ratio and only a +3 in Explosive play differential. Even with Chris Johnson they ranked 17th in the league in rushing last year after being the second best rushing attack in the NFL the year before.
This is not to say that QB has to be the top priority for new Head Coach, Mike Munchek and his Offensive Coordinator, Chris Palmer.
Picking at #8 the Titans will have some tough decisions to make regardless oh which QB prospect/s is taken before the Titans selection. Are there two QB’s in this years draft worth taking among the first 10 picks?
In addition to QB, the Titans need help on the interior of the offensive line at both center and guard. Inside linebacker and possibly an edge rusher to either replace Jason Babin or augment him depending on what happens in free agency.
Either way the Titans will need all they help they can get with their out of division games coming against the AFC North and the NFC South.
