This will be brief. Lots of work to do at my real job. Here are a few of my thoughts about Sunday’s big win over the L.A. Chargers.
Ryan Tannehill’s Big Day
Right now, Tannehill is the man for the job. He was decisive. He trusted his receivers to make plays for him and the offense. His pocket presence was good enough to get the win, though he lacked some ball security on a few hits that really could have cost the team. Tannehill played with a lot of confidence and that was fun to watch. I hope he can keep playing at that level, or even better, for the rest of the season. With this defense, that might be enough to make a run.
Speaking of defense…
Is Jeffery Simmons Human?
How does a 300+ pound man tear his ACL in February and play a professional football game in October? And how does he play so well? He recorded 4 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, and a sack in his first NFL appearance. After one week of practice. After tearing his ACL in February!
I repeat: IS THIS MAN HUMAN?!?
The Goal Line Stop
I don’t believe I have ever gone through as many emotions in such a short period of time as I did watching those final few plays. I was watching the game with my boys and we went from screaming at the TV in anger, to celebrating, to being nervous, to feeling utter despair, to celebrating, to crying, to screaming again, to celebrating while screaming and yelling and running around. It was glorious!
Don’t do that again, Titans. I can’t handle it.
