Delanie Walker: 'We should be a great team'
After finishing last season with a 2-14 record and with a rookie set to start at quarterback in Marcus Mariota, expectations may be low for the Tennessee Titans. Not for tight end Delanie Walker though, who is predicting substantial improvement this season.
"I say we go (at least) .500,'' Walker said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. "I don't want to make Super Bowl predictions, but we should be a great team."
That's bold talk, but Walker, who is entering his third season in Tennessee, says the team has a different attitude from a season before.
"It is early. I sense that we have some playmakers here,'' Walker said. "But time will tell how good we should be. I think the makeup of the team has changed. We have a lot of guys in different rooms that can take someone's spot that was here before. So I think the makeup has changed, and I think guys realize ownership and coaches are not playing anymore."
While holding off on the Super Bowl talk is probably wise for now, if the Titans come close to Walker's prediction of .500 or better, they'll be one of the better stories in the NFL this season.
