    Downing is fired. You can bank on that, Tum Kelly is our new OC.

    Yeah, obviously the Wilson pick was a huge bust. And he wasn’t originally thought to be a high risk pick. He just melted down.

    But when people start talking about replacing Jrob, to me that’s crazy talk. Is there room for improvement, of course. But no way we ditch Jrob.

    First of all, who would we get that could be better? And the fact of the matter is as a whole he has been phenomenal at building this roster to the point that we are constantly a top team in the NFL. He was also able to build enough depth that we were #1 seed after fielding a record 91 players with the most injuries in history. No other team has been able to find success under those type of challenges.

    Yea.. that’s you and you don’t own an NFL franchise. Vrabel is a very good HC ( might even be coach of the year) and he IS going to be the Titans HC “ for a while “.
    Posters on a message board making **** up about Schwartz being hired against Vrabels wishes which is not even remotely true. That’s just doesn’t happen in the NFL . Vrabel actually spoke on this when Schwartz was hired. Vrabel hired him, period. I don’t know where some of y’all come up with this crap.

    Ok. We don't disagree at all. I've never advocated replacing JRob. My big schtick is always about accountability. That's how an organization, a coach, a player etc get better. People who categorically want to overlook JRob's mistakes while only praising his successes are a hindrance to accountability. And those folks are the ones that keep on pressing that JRob is elite.

    That’s tough because I like Vrabel, but I’d keep JRob over Vrabel. We saw the GMs the previous 10 years, it’s not easy to find and JRob has built a winning franchise by personnel.
    Vrabel has had a ton of questionable coaching decisions and that includes the coaching assistance he has around him.

    JRob is better than his predecessors, but there are guys in the NFL right now who are better talent evaluators than he is. Coaches like Vrabel are hard to find. He might be one of a kind. I’ve never seen a team play so hard so consistently. Unfortunately we always seem to have one issue that keeps us from being a complete team. This year it was Downing.

    You’re adding multiple people into the conversation now. Do we need a better scouting team? I think that absolutely can be argued because “talent evaluator” is not 100% on JRob. For college prospects, I’d argue it’s largely not him.

    The idea that some “better” guys are out there doesn’t mean you don’t have someone that can reach the pinnacle, one of those selections is available, and you’re willing to risk a likely downgrade possibility.
    With what I’ve seen JRob do with this franchise, I think he’s in the conversation of best among the league but that’s difficult to compare all the way around.
    One of the absolute undefinable pieces for any GM is what players are available. You cannot always get THE top players available while also fighting those that aren’t available. So getting the best of what is available is what a GM is trying to do while still managing a salary cap.

    There are zero perfect Gm’s. The term “elite” should be gone entirely when referring to GM since it’s impossible to quantify anyway. Product on the field is the best judgement. Titans are winning against most.

    All that said, I agree a Vrabel is tough to find. I want to keep both but whoever is deciding the coordinator positions, as of right now, I’d say they are my choice to go first if forced to pick. I think that’s Vrabel.
