Chandler HenleyRole: Quality Control CoachNFL Coaching Experience: NonePositions Coached: NoneCollegiate Coaching Experience:Offensive Recruiting/Graduate Assistant (Vanderbilt , 2012-2013), Assistant Quarterbacks Coach (2014), Tight Ends Coach (Yale, 2015-2017)Coaching Track RecordQuality Control Coach Chandler Henley will make his professional coaching debut on the Titans sidelines in 2018. Henley, who doesn’t boast a lengthy coaching resume, brings experience both as a player and a coach. He built a reputation during his stint as a college coach for his ability to lead, connect with players and for his skills as a recruiter. He takes on a very important - yet undervalued - role with the Titans as the QC coach on the offensive side of the ball. The QC position involves immersing one’s self in tape, statistics and data research that will help prepare a team for practice leading up to a game. A detailed overview of the importance of the QC position can be found here.It will be a massive undertaking and, for some, would be too intimidating.Henley, however, can handle it. Having an Ivy League background suggests that Henley obtains the mental faculties required to compartmentalize, digest and dissect the workload that will be coming his way. Brought in because of his ability to lead on the field and from the sidelines, Henley fits right in with the new coaching additions. As a player, he led his team in multiple categories. As a coach, he was a person players felt comfortable with going to for guidance. His rapport-building with the players enabled him to avoid being hesitant at times when coaching up was necessary.It is Henley that will spend his nights buried in film, isolating defensive looks and relaying those looks to the scout defense in order to help the offense prepare for their opponents on a week to week basis. Understanding defensive designs the offense will face, having a firm grasp of how the offense can expose or exploit deficiencies in those designs and finding a way to put together the right sample to use during game week will be a huge chunk of Henley’s responsibilities. The level of preparedness the Titans offense displays on Sunday will be directly correlated to the work put in by Henley throughout the week. I for sure need to stop picking the Titans to win games now. I’m ruining what could have been a 5-0 start to the year.With that out of the way, welcome to another edition of Keeping Up With Marcus Mariota. Last week Cheap Derrick Henry Jersey , Mariota completed 14 of 26 passes at Buffalo for 129 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception for a 51.6 passer rating. Obviously, the expectation is Mariota played a bad game after playing at a high level the previous week against the Eagles. But by looking at the incompletions he tossed, something doesn’t look right. So here’s what happened on all 12 of Mariota’s incompletions:1. Thrown in the area of Jonnu Smith who was tightly covered.2. Late, behind Derrick Henry.3. Corey Davis stopped running, was contacted.4. Was trying to throw the ball away under intense pressure, but the arc of his passmeant the ball was nearly intercepted.5. His actual interception. Nick Williams completely let the defensive back come through his window and pick the pass off.6. Wide of Luke Stocker7. Through Taywan Taylor’s hands on a catch he should’ve made.8. Pressure disrupts his pass to Dion Lewis.9. Batted at the line of scrimmage looking for Corey Davis.10. Thrown away under pressure from Tremaine Edmunds.11. Jump ball to Sharpe, not a smart decision, fortunate to get away with an incompletion.12. Accurate pass to Nick Williams that should’ve been caught for a touchdown but was instead dropped.

So looking at Mariota’s incompletions, 9 of his 12 came from pass disruptions, a lack of separation, bad receiver play, drops, miscommunications, and throwing the ball away. If Williams catches the touchdown pass, we might not be talking about how “bad” Mariota played on Sunday. Another concern is how conservative Matt LaFleur’s play calling was. Sure, Buffalo’s defense has some quality players, but Tennessee only attempted four passes of at least 16 air yards. Perhaps LaFleur doesn’t trust the limited receiving corps, but With Corey Davis lighting it up downfield the previous week Brett Kern Jersey , it’s baffling.With that said, let’s highlight some notable passes Mariota threw on Sunday and briefly analyze, Nick Williams is running a simple go route against zone coverage, yet he couldn’t even do that correctly. Mariota gets clean protection—though really it’s hard not to when you’re releasing the ball that quickly—and it should be a pass that Williams can catch. But Williams has no spatial awareness on this play, so he has no idea the defensive back is coming into his window. Williams gets overwhelmed, screwing his quarterback over as the pass is picked Bills’ play-by-play listed this as an overthrown ball, but to me, this is one Taywan Taylor should’ve caught for a touchdown. Mariota is under heavy pressure this time and is able to get the ball off just before getting hit. I’ve mentioned in the past that Taylor’s catch radius is extremely limited. He’s extremely effective as a screen and underneath receiver, but when asked to expand his frame he’s been a major letdown. He’s asked to slightly contort his body to make this catch, but instead it goes through his hands and ends up as a dropped speaking of dropped touchdowns, Nick Williams ultimately sealed his fate in Tennessee with a massive drop that would’ve given the Titans a lead trailing 10-6. Mariota extends the play and Williams does a nice job of breaking open, but the ball inexplicably goes through his hands on the Titans’ second dropped touchdown of the game.Marcus Mariota wasn’t spectacular against the Bills, but the play calling was way too conservative, the receivers could barely separate, and when they did they either dropped the pass or were not on the same page as Mariota. I thought he played a solid game in spite of the situation around him, and it’s on LaFleur to correct his mistakes (from an otherwise solid season as offensive coordinator) and for the Titans to consider trading for a receiver.Still, at least we got to see Mariota leap over a was awesome.
