    Can’t imagine how this is justified after the performance we saw last year. I have been pretty impressed with Vrabel in his tenure here. But this is the first major mistake he has made. If works out I will be happy to be wrong.

    Guys, it really sooo simple. We just have to coach better.

    This is as much on JRob than Vrable.

    We could won a super bowl with this offense except they laid an egg in the playoffs.

    Don't like the hire, but this thread is basically a who's who of the people that pop onto shoutbox as soon as the Titans give up a score to make the game 7-7 halfway thru the first.

    Shoot that’s 75% of the fan base. Look on any venue and it’s the same. People freak early and often during games. However, Bowen was a poor choice based on last year’s results.

    I don't care who the DC is, the players still have to make plays on the field, and the D simply could not do that.

    I tend to think he is awful because the defense is awful and the only time he was mentioned all year was when he gave half the team covid.

    ...but we really don't know what he contributed or didn't contribute to the team.

    All I really know is that he'll get blamed for everything, even if our dude slips or gets pancaked or whatever.

    Yup. Feels a lot like when we went 13-3 then just fell back to the mediocre titans we all know.

    There's a reason why a few teams are always contenders, and it's not because they promote guys after a failure of a season.

    Well, we know he called all the defensive plays and we know we were poor at in game adjustments, which would fall on the shoulders of the play caller. He WAS the DC last year, just didn’t get the title. I think what we saw in terms of player regression has to ultimately be on him too. That does not let the position coaches off the hook, but if Shane was the voice of the defense, that should have been addressed too.
