The Titans can't pass protect, and have a second-round pick who hasn't helped

Dillon RadunzNASHVILLE, Tenn. – A year ago, the protection of Ryan Tannehill was a primary feature of the Titans’ offense.

He was sacked just 24 times.

Through four games this season, he’s gone down 17 times already. Projections for a full season when things are bad early rarely pan out, but over a 17-game season they are on pace for 72.

Taylor Lewan’s return was supposed to settle things down with his return from ACL repair.

But he got destroyed by Arizona’s Chandler Jones in the opener, didn’t play in the second game in Seattle after a warm-up issue, bemoaned the opening-day boos after a satisfactory performance against the Colts and hid following Sunday’s disaster against the Jets in New Jersey.

Rodger Saffold has not been bad, when he’s been available. But he’s dealt with a shoulder injury and left the Jets game with a concussion.
