    eh I don't care. I think special teams touchdowns are more right place right time than coaching. besides that brain child that was have one guy catch it and throw it to a guy on the other side of the field...don't know how he ever came up with that. genius, shoulda promoted him to head coach.

    special team tds are more on a special player than a special coach by far

    Yeah, and that "Get Damian Williams to kick it into the endzone for an opposing touchdown" was brilliant. Got it.

    *you're.

    These are the same players that Lowry had playing well, who are now playing like idiots.

    But that doesn't have anything to do with coaching.

    Mental mistakes and being completely out of position across the board has nothing to do with coaching.

    Got it. Excuse me while I go send in my application.

    You're right. I, along with a multitude of other fans, was complaining throughout the bulk of Lowry's tenure as Special Teams coach.

    As I said before, he's had flashes of good plays... but a LARGE number of bad ones - penalties, bad blocking and his defense of returns was ABYSMAL... but, I guess if I overlook the glaring bad, I can see the good.

    Also, I never said the guy we have now is superior to Lowry... all I said was Lowry should've been gone when Fisher was let go, or sooner.

    Is Fisher the better coach than Munch? I think so... did the Titans need to move on from Fisher? Definitely. Unfortunately, Munch just isn't that guy, in my opinion.

    Is Lowry the better coach then who we have? Probably... did the Titans need to move on from Lowry? Definitely. Again, who we have currently just isn't the guy. But, to say Lowry was getting the job done is ignoring the bulk of his work here.

    That's all I'm saying. I don't miss Lowry because I remember ALL of his time here as a Titan coach. I don't like this new guy, either.

    This team would be better under Fisher... but still break even and be an average team. Ties HAD to be cut... just like with Lowry. He was not a GREAT Special Teams Coach. Otherwise... he'd be employed - unless he has no intention of working again.

    Reynaud wasn't a great player last year. People were screaming at his decision making even then! Who was his coach? Oh right, Lowry.

    Someone said give Lowry a good returner and he's good... well, we have yet to give this guy a good returner and here's where we stand.

    I'm sorry, but the bulk of the problems I've seen on Special Teams have little to do with the coaching and a LOT to do with the returner. Reynaud is just stupid. We get someone competent back there and he gets injured. Was Williams perfect? Nah, he made a bad decision or two... but that was ON HIM.

    Nope. The Special Teams wasn't all that great last year.

    Lowry gets a good play or two in every season... but the rest of his time is hair-pulling frustration. Reynaud was doing a lot of his stupid decision-making last year, also. We also had a lot, A LOT, of penalties from Tommie Campbell. But, those weren't Lowry's fault...
