Tennessee Titans could be facing a worst-case scenario


NASHVILLE – It’s no secret that much of this season for the Tennessee Titans is about discovering how well second-year quarterback Will Levis can lead first-year coach Brian Callahan’s offense.

Bleacher Report writer Brad Gagnon presented a compelling analysis, envisioning the worst-case scenarios for each team in the 2024 National Football League season. His insights painted a grim picture that Titan fans and general manager Ran Carthon fervently hoped to avoid.

“A scenario where they win just enough to lose significant draft capital without getting a strong indication that Will Levis is the future at quarterback,” Gagnon wrote.

Last season, Levis showed off his talent by completing 149 of 255 passes (58.4%) for 1,808 yards, with eight touchdowns and four interceptions, resulting in a passer rating of 84.2. However, towards the end of the season he faced an uphill battle with ankle and foot injuries. These setbacks significantly affected his performance, leading to his absence from two of the team’s final three matches.

Callahan believes Levis is showing he is ready for a better season by improving his decision-making.

“You start with what you ask him per play,” Callahan said. You know, what does this progress require? What should he do with his footwork? Where should his eyes be? We learn the system first, and then when you get into situations like today was a third-down day, you get a chance to look back and say, ‘That was the third-and-4 decision. Could you have made another one?”

‘Could the ball have come out faster? In this particular case, we don’t need to detain him.” So there is a lot of coaching in the situations associated with teaching the system. And where we are now in our process is more about educating the system and what is expected.”
