5. Tennessee had the guts to make drastic change

Lastly, the Tennessee Titans have totally turned around their organization with one simple move at quarterback. When they decided to bench Marcus Mariota and end that era, Ryan Tannehill came in and began lighting it up.

It wasn’t even that Mariota was playing horrendously. The offense simply wasn’t exciting. It was bland. Mariota wasn’t making the big plays this offense needed to move forward. So, head coach Mike Vrabel decided to shake things up.

All the Titans have done since they made the switch was make it to the AFC Championship Game a season ago and are off to a 6-3 start this year, with the playoffs in sight once more.

Tannehill is 13-6 as a starter in Tennessee with 42 passing touchdowns to just nine interceptions. Mariota is now forgotten, just as Trubisky should be in the very near future.

The difference with Tennessee, though, is that the Titans brought in a younger quarterback who had shown flashes in the past and offered down field throwing ability. The Bears had other options this past offseason, and they still sacrificed draft capital to sign an older veteran who can’t move in the pocket and plays incredibly streaky at times.

Must Read. Bears should start tanking for these 2021 prospects. light

If the Bears learn anything from this season, it’s that there need to be major changes going into 2021. They can draw plenty from these teams going forward, and should look very different going into next year.
