    Look, I hate the hire. But I won’t fault him for not firing a coach to this point. So far the team has performed well and there really hasn’t been a pressing need to fire anyone. I am not even sure Bowen should get fired. But hiring him as DC is bad. We can hammer Vrabel for that...not sure we can hammer him for not firing anyone yet.

    I doubt many fans have been impressed with the special teams coordinator for the past two seasons, but Aukerman remains. Honestly, of all the coaches on the staff, the fact he still has a job amazes me.

    That maybe one good example. Not sure he has had fireable performance, but maybe.

    I dunno. The kicking and punting (when kern out) has been abysmal under Aukerman. And the return game hasnt been anything to write home about. Special teams has been a weakness for a while.
    Defense was really only a weakness in 2020.

    With this "promotion", Titans had better improve drastically on D, or I jump on the fire Vrabel bandwagon.

    This has to be the worst coaching move I've ever seen.
    I can't for the life of me figure how this bad of a D, with a guy they all admitted was doing the job without the title, could possible have led to even a consideration for the job yet alone actually giving it to him.

    I feel really sorry for Thill, Henry and the rest of the O who bust their a$$es to make a top offense only to get let down time and again by this s**t D.

    So let's summarize so we understand...

    We wouldn’t pursue Pees, whom the D played well under last year because Vrabel didn't want to bring him out of retirement again.
    But he comes out of retirement to work on our former OC staff in Atlanta

    Instead we promote the LB coach to DC who didn't get the title and the D regressed under him

    Lol

    They were so bad, I don't know if "regressed" really displays how poor they were all season.

    Remember, we know nothing. How do we know Pees didn’t agree with Vrabel that is was time for Bowen to take over and he would go help the kid in Atlanta ?

    In all seriousness.... why do y’all keep ignoring the personnel issues on defense? They weren’t small issues. Bowen might suck. But last season isn’t a fair judge of whether he will succeed or not. With the injuries and lack of talent and depth on defense last season they were going to suck.

    Why do some of you just flat ignore that?

    I think it's because due to the salary cap, the Titans don't have a lot of money to address the players on defense.

    The Titans defense was abysmal last season, and we're keeping the same DC to manage what is going to be mostly the same players.

    Our offense otoh did great. Most of those players will be back, so an internal hire at OC isn't as critical, especially when our O suffered personnel injuries that were well managed.

    Those adjustments weren't made on defense. I understand why people aren't thrilled to watch the same thing possibly happen again by keeping the same DC and players while expecting a different outcome.
