Titans Head Coach Calls Out Rookie QB

While many felt Tennessee Titans rookie quarterback Malik Willis had himself a night, head coach Mike Vrabel is here to keep things in perspective. Vrabel was awfully candid after Willis' debut, suggesting the QB has a long way to go to be successful in the NFL.

Vrabel met with NFL.com's Kevin Patra after the Titans were defeated by the Baltimore Ravens and had this to say:

He needs to try to throw the ball when guys are open, be more decisive. Wanted to get him out there, see how he responds. There were some good plays and obviously some plays we're gonna have to look at the timing on the release and if we're making the right decisions. He kept some plays alive with his legs, and we just have to be able to combine some of that with making great decisions when guys are open and being decisive and accurate with the football

Willis completed six of 11 passes for 107 yards and didn't record a touchdown. The third-round pick of the Titans was sacked twice and showed flashes of brilliance throughout the night with deep balls and some savvy athleticism.

Willis is competing for the backup QB spot behind starter Ryan Tannehill. His counterpart Logan Woodside also saw some action against the Ravens, throwing for 102 yards on 14-of-24 passes and Woodside also added two interceptions.
