  • are the Titans the biggest Super Bowl sleepers right now?

  • I think so.

  • I mean sleepers Air tough because you're supposed to pick teams.

  • You think that no one's really talking about.

  • Have a chance.

  • And I guess the Titans fit the bill of the best team that no one really predicting is gonna win the Super Bowl.

  • I think that mainly comes down to the fact that we perceive Tannehill the way we do because we saw him for so long in a bad situation, Um, that we don't really believe he's actually excellent, but I really believe Tannehill's actually excellent.

  • Is he Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Rodgers know Russell Wilson?

  • No.

  • But is he comparable to some of those quarterbacks in the next tier?

  • Down he is.

  • And when he's been asked to step up, he's played well.

  • He's really played very well.

  • This is going on two years now.

  • So yes, there's Derrick, Henry and the defense and all that.

  • But I think people are sleeping on Tannehill and therefore sleeping on the Titans.

  • If you're talking about an actual sleeper that no one is talking about to win the Super Bowl or at least get there I'll give you one That will shock you.

  • Look at the Miami Dolphins, who the last time they had a sensational young quarterback, really, the last time they had one got there in Dan Marino and two was a different kind of quarterback.

  • But with that aggressive defense and maybe just enough weapons on offense, his accuracy, his poise, his big game experience in college, you know that's the kind of team, and they have an easy schedule for the next four weeks, and then it gets tough.

  • But if they get in there with momentum 84 9 and three, and they even split their last four games, that's a double digit plus wind team.

  • It's not impossible, double digit plus win team with momentum and an aggressive defense and an excellent young, accurate quarterback heading into the playoffs.

  • That's a team people are not gonna wanna face.

  • I got I got news for you, Max Kellerman.

  • That's not bad, but I think I think I got one better for you than that.

  • How about the Las Vegas Raiders?

  • Ladies and gentlemen, Jon Gruden, Mike Mayock not doing a bad job now, we all know I've asked Damien Woody I don't know if you were here when I asked.

  • I said, Where's my job?

  • Is president of basketball operations for an MBA team?

  • I mean, if Mike May, I could be a GM.

  • Why can't I?

  • You know, I've said that before because he was in the media doing what I'm doing.

  • You're doing what we're doing before he got the GM job.

  • Talk about privilege, but we'll leave it alone at that because I'm being somewhat facetious.

  • Let me be very, very clear.

  • Mike May Yock is doing a good job.

  • Jon Gruden is doing a good job there.

  • Five and three.

  • Have you all seen Derek Carr play?

  • Derek Carr had something approved.

  • Derek Carr is completing nearly 70% of his passes.

  • He's got 16 touchdowns, just two interceptions on the season.

  • Josh Jacobs can run with that football, even though he needs to average better than 3.7 yards a carry.

  • This kid Darren Waller can ball.

  • Nelson A galore Looks pretty damn good.

  • Henry.

  • Rugs.

  • This brother can play deep pattern.

  • This brother get He could spread on offense now.

  • Okay, so they've got some weapons on the offensive side of the ball.

  • their defense still needs to be improved, but it's definitely better than it was a year ago.

  • But let's look at the schedule and let me remind you all of who they've beaten.

  • Um, Carolina.

  • Opening the season.

  • No big deal.

  • They beat the New Orleans Saints.

  • The Kansas City Chiefs have one loss on their record.

  • That was to the Las Vegas Raiders.

  • And over the last two weeks, they've beaten the Browns and the charges.

  • So I'm gonna say it again.

  • The Saints, the Kansas City Chiefs and the charges.

  • Now I'd say the charges because we look at their record.

  • Very deceptive.

  • Anthony lenders in trouble because you can't keep losing double digit leads with a rookie quarterback, has been playing the way that Justin Herbert has been playing.

  • They've got talent on the charges.

  • What the hell are you losing these games for?

  • Particularly when you got double digit leads, but but losing losing to them?

  • I mean, rather, beating them is a decent accomplishment.

  • I'm looking at the Raiders right now on the come up, and when we talk about a sleeper, somebody that can walk into an NFL stadium on any given Sunday and give it to you.

  • They got the potential to give it to you.

  • I can't rule out the Raiders.

  • I like what I'm seeing.

  • I like the job that Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock are doing, and they deserve props for that.

  • Uh huh.

  • I'm kind of pissed right now because Max hit on something that that he alluded to.

  • I'm going with the Miami Dolphins.

  • If people haven't watched the Dolphins, you better go, people.

  • Um, out because the dolphins are coming.

  • You're talking about a team in the Miami Dolphins?

  • They've won four straight.

  • Okay, four straight.

  • The Miami Dolphins are in the top 10 in scoring offense and scoring defense.

  • They are fourth intern over margin.

  • This is a team that's very well coaching Bryan Flores.

  • People were scratching their head, you know, questioning why Bryan Flores would insert tour when Ryan Fitzpatrick was playing well.

  • But if you watch that game last week against the Arizona Cardinals, you see why he insult, inserted to a tongue of a low into the starting lineup because he brings a different element to the passing game.

  • Just had the quarterback position all around.

  • Ladies and gentlemen, the Miami Dolphins are here very well coached team.

  • They're not going anywhere telling you that right now.

  • I will say this.

  • I want to give props to Kris Career.

  • He's the general manager, African American.

  • We don't see many of those in the National Football League.

  • I wanna give major props.

  • Took my coach of the year, which is Bryan Flores and the job that he's doing African American.

  • We haven't seen many of those in the league in recent memory, either.

  • So definitely I would love to give them props, no doubt about it.

  • But I'm telling you, all right now, there's something about Miami that just says I'm watching their defense.

  • I'm watching the way they play.

  • The defense has been big time at times, but they just gave up 31 Arizona.

  • I just look at Miami and I suck this everything to me.

  • Says Year away.

  • Year away, year away.

  • And when you talk about a sleeper ithe looking at the Raiders and I'm like the Raiders could do something right now if we sleep on them.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
