Rishard Matthews, Titans players not happy with direction of offense

The Tennessee Titans have offered far too little on offense for some time now, and some players are getting fed up.

One, wide receiver Rishard Matthews, even went on the record to say that he believes it’s time to give quarterback Marcus Mariota more control over an offense that has been inexplicably slow and stagnant despite the quarterback’s skillset. In particular, the Titans’ reluctance to use a no-huddle offense that Mariota has excelled in has been particularly confusing to players.

“I’d rather have Marcus calling the shots,” Matthews said, via Cameron Wolfe of ESPN. “There’s proof in the success when that happens. I’d like to do no-huddle more. I know we’d all like to do it more. We definitely talk about it a lot. Sometimes we go into it a lot. Sometimes we don’t. This game we stayed in it, and I feel like we were pretty good when were in it.”

Wolfe reports that several Titans are in agreement with this, with a feeling that the Titans have occasionally grown too conservative in their playcalling.

There is definitely some frustration about the Tennessee offense. Perhaps Mariota’s status could have something to do with some of it.
