If you’re expecting a huge offensive turnaround for the Tennessee Titans in 2018, you might be in for a bit of a disappointment.

At least according to former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky.

The retired 12 year NFL veteran made a guest appearance on The Midday 180 on Friday and made some comments that Titans fans might find concerning.

Orlovsky, who briefly played under new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur in Los Angeles prior to the start of the 2018 regular season, said it takes 18 months to get a “full handle” on the offense the Titans will be running under LaFleur.

18 months?!?!?! That’s definitely not ideal.

The former NFL journeyman, who was in Houston in 2009 when LaFleur was an offensive quality control coach with the Texans, also pointed out some concerns he has about play calling for the Titans in 2018.

While he’s encouraged by what he saw during pre-season last year, Orlovsky still isn’t sold that LaFleur will definitely be able to call plays.

Orlovsky clearly has more insight on LaFleur’s offense than me, but I’m not sure I totally agree with him.

The offense the Titans will be running in 2018 is essentially the same as what the Rams used last season. And as we saw, it didn’t take 18 months for Jared Goff and company to get a “full handle” on the offense.

Obviously there will be some rough moments for the Titans in 2018, but overall I think they’re going to take a significant leap forward under LaFleur.
