Ryan Tannehill: You don’t forget how to throw and catch in two weeks

With Derrick Henry doing the heavy lifting, Ryan Tannehill has thrown 29 passes for 160 yards in the Titans’ two playoff victories.

The quarterback is fine with any formula that leads to another win and a trip to the Super Bowl.

“Well I mean, being a quarterback, obviously I love throwing the ball, but I just want to win,” Tannehill said, via Terry McCormick of titaninsider.com. “At the end of the day, that’s what we go out there each and every week is to find a way to win and do whatever it takes. So, if that’s throwing it 15 times and trying to execute those plays, that’s what I’ll do. If it’s 35, then that’s what it is.”

Tannehill averaged 27 attempts and 260 yards in his 10 regular-season starts. He has 25 touchdowns and six interceptions, including the postseason, since taking over the starting job from Marcus Mariota.

The Titans, though, haven’t called on him much in the postseason. They likely will Sunday.

“We’ve done it multiple ways throughout the season, and you don’t forget how to throw and catch and in two weeks,” Tannehill said. “It’s something we still have a lot of confidence in, and I know our guys outside have a lot of confidence in themselves, and I have a lot of confidence in them being able to get open and get them the football.”

  1. No you don’t. But you can apparently learn more in one season with a different team, than you did in six season under a ‘quarterback whisperer’.

  2. Right place, right time. Titans can win it all and it won’t disappoint me. Could be one of those magic years.

  3. Run heavy teams control the clock, If Henry continues on his torrid pace, it simply means Mahomes is not on field. The game shortens for KC offense equaling less possessions and less points. Titans brought this formula to NE,,and proved it again in Baltimore. It is not all about points. But how many opportunities you HAVE to score points,when facing this situation.. Should be an interesting game from a fan standpoint.

  4. No knock on Tannehill who has definitely made throws since he came in.
    But…if the playcalling had been this way all year long, Mariota would still be their QB. Not saying they’d be where they’re at, but I don’t think Vrabel was ever totally comfortable with Mariota.
    Just saying the obvious and yes I am a Mariota supporter.

  5. Yea Titans will control the clock, but the Chiefs dont need much time to score. And if the Titans fall behind then they’ll have to play catch up and will have to rely on THill more. Which he can if the O-line holds up. The key for the Cheifs is gonna be to get off to an early start and have the Titans play their game. Its gonna be a great game. The offense is gonna get it done from both teams, we’ll see if the Titans secondary or the Chiefs run defense show up.
