NFL Players and Coaches Already On The Hot Seat

Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans, QB

Anytime a team brings in a rookie QB to serve as a “backup”, the nominal starter is put on watch. The Titans waited and waited on draft day until they could not wait anymore. In the third round, Tennessee moved up in the draft to select the sliding Malik Willis. The Liberty product was deemed an ideal fit behind veteran Ryan Tannehill, but could the rookie be placed into a starting role sooner rather than later?

Tannehill led the Titans to the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC last year, and has captured back-to-back AFC South titles. However, the Tennessee has failed to win a postseason game each of the last two years — primarily due to inefficient passing performances. We’ve already seen Willis take over for Tannehill late in the blowout loss to Buffalo. May not be much longer until Titans HC Mike Vrabel names Willis as the starter.
