    I would be afraid if he ever heard us call a naked bootleg he’d jump on the field.

    I do wonder how much tunnel vision affects Vrabel’s choices. I like him, but he has very strong opinions about things. That’s not necessarily bad, but may limit open-mindedness to other valid options.

    Called it. Disappointed Vrabel didn't bring him back mid season last year. I wonder if Pees' "retirement" wasn't more of a "mutual" decision more so on Vrabel's part.

    Hubris is his biggest weakness.

    Nothing to prove that either way. I think folks read way too much into things. Because he already retired once when not working for Vrabel, it’s clearly something on his mind. We also do not know what role he may be interested in at Atlanta. Perhaps a consulting or advising role which is not what we need. We need a bad dude play caller. Pees is the only coordinator who left us who wasn’t promoted to head coach, so there is no evidence coaches can’t get along with him.

    I think it's more likely that Pees' retirement plans went up in smoke thanks to COVID and his desire to return to coaching in some capacity is fueled because of that. Vrabel did coax Pees out of retirement to come to the Titans, so I do not believe that there would be friction. Bowen and Vrabel were still running a modified version of Pees scheme.

    I think it is highly likely COVID played a role. Especially given Pees’s age. I think people are jumping to conclusions speculating issues between Vrabel and Pees as there is no evidence of that. Blaming Vrabel for Pees taking a different job is silly unless some new evidence comes to light - which I doubt.

    Yea, we'll never know, but given his track record and based on some of the things he says during interviews, it's not that farfetched to think Vrabel wanted a shot to call his own number. Clearly it didn't work out. I wrote at one point last year that given our 5-0 start, Vrabel should be able to convince Pees to unretire even as a "consultant" to give him another shot at a Super Bowl. Shorty after that, news came out that Pees in fact said he wanted to coach again. Again, we won't know, but the fact that we didn't bring him back right then and there, it probably speaks more to Vrabel than to Pees. Now if he goes to Atlanta, again, another missed opportunity and it would seem it is because of Vrabel. It's not necessarily a crazy conspiracy.

    And I agree with you, we need a full DC, we don't know yet if that's what Pees will be in Atlanta, but we probably could of had him as a DC or a consultant last year.
