    What makes him a good HC? His arrogance to not hire a true DC? Or his roster management skills which led to us not bringing in a legit pass rush specialist?

    I guess it's this first round exit that really makes him a great head coach. My bad.

    Yeah. Bit suprised. Just didn't feel ANYBODY really wanted to win this game. Who knows- maybe it was idea of having to most likely go to KC. Just didn't see real fire all around, the way we did in last year's playoffs.

    You're just sore. Vrabel is a decent HC. I like what he brings. Usually. But I admit that today, just didn't seem anybody from Titans really wanted to go get this game. A lot of baffling decisions. Corey Davis? 4th and 2 punt? running into 8 and 9 (NINE damnit) man boxes and not checking out of that. Failing to contain Lamar Jackson when it counted. Field goal choice instead of going for it.

    Yeah, I'm not sure. It was definitely different. Just lacked the typical aggression.

    Has Vrabel ever fired a member of his coaching staff?

    Was this guy OC today? Reminded me of ‘run it until it pops’ ...

    Vrabel deserves to be second-guessed today but I think the FG was the right decision.

    95% of the time, Kern knocks that punt inside the 5. I thought Vrabel should have tried the hard count there tho.

    And for all those blaming Smith for running Henry so much on first down, Vrabel hears every call and has every opportunity to change it. I personally would like to know how many plays Tanny changed on first down at the line.

    Regardless, he will have to this offseason.

    Vrabel is going to have to make decisions he will not like regarding his coaching staff. Priority #1 for him is bringing in a new DC (and not some in house loser like Bowen).

    Running on first down was something that was done a lot when LaFluer was OC as well. Maybe people so quick to blame Arthur Smith for it might have to accept it looks like it could be a Vrabel thing.

    I think Smith deserves more blame than Tannehill. He hardly had any opportunity to get in rhythm, only got to throw on third and long it seemed. O-line gave him no protection.

    Our only success moving the ball was spread out shotgun formations in first Q. Not enough play action, not enough passing on first down. We were too conservative both sides off the ball. The punt at the end though, jeez, criminal.

    Shame nothing from Corey / Jonnu etc. Once Henry and Brown were neutralised we seemed flat. Sod’s law the one time we throw it deep in second half Raymond falls over... not a good day at the office all round.
