Every football player should hypothetically want to start, right? Not Ryan Tannehill. He wants you to know that he is a giant coward, pussy, and utterly worthless. Ryan Tannehill is in Tennessee and should be battling for the starting quarterback job with Marcus Mariota. That doesn’t appear to be the case. Mike Vrabel won’t allow there to be any competition for the job. Now Tannehill conceded the starting job and is happy to be the backup.

I didn’t know it was a story,” Tannehill said, via Erik Bacharach of the Nashville Tennessean. “I don’t really listen to the media at all. Sorry guys.”

“I don’t think that’s an option at this point,” Tannehill said of the possibility of starting. “At least it hasn’t been stated to me. I’m just going out and competing against the defense that’s out there each and every play and trying to execute the call as best I can.”

Didn’t think it was an option? WTF? What does that even mean? He just came to the Titans and assumed that he was going to be the backup? I’m not saying that Tannehill is a world beat, but he was a first round pick and just started every year of his career since 2012. Marcus Mariota is too good to beat out? Really? The same guy that went 11-8 touchdown to interception ratio in 2018.

At some point, Tannehill is going to play. It’s either going to be because Mariota stinks or because he gets hurt for the 100th time. Let’s hope that Tannehill stops being a pussy when he gets his chance. For the record, Tannehill was probably the better quarterback of the two in 2018. Tannehill had a TD-INT ratio of 17-9.
