    That's what I was thinking when the Titans had a turnover ratio of 0-13 in three losses this season. You can't make this stuff up.

    Add in the injuries as well. It's just mind-boggling.

    Add in the AFC Championship against the Chiefs and you get this:

    57 carries for 171 yards (3.0 yards/carry) and 2 TD. 57 yards/game

    Teams simply aren't going to allow Henry to beat them in the postseason.

    One of the issues on Saturday was Vrabel and Downing's unwillingness to run Foreman/Hilliard. Henry should never have gotten 20 carries after the amount of time he was out due to his injury (and of course the injury itself). By the first few carries, it was obvious that Henry had little burst and was having difficulty with his footwork (he tripped/slipped on a few occasions).

    I'm going to be very interested to see how Henry runs next season after the injury and more time to recuperate.

    Last year, the Ravens stacked the box against Henry. Even King Henry has a hard time running against a stacked box. On the flipside, Tanne played most of the day against single coverage and still had a ****** game. Run single coverage against Pat Mahomes, Tom Brady, or Aaron Rodgers all game and see where that gets you. I'll tell you what it will give you: a living room seat for the playoffs.

    This year, it was rather clear Henry was rusty/not 100%. There is zero chance that Henry at 100% gets stopped on short yardage downs as often as he did on Saturday.

    Yeah, Wilson would cost a minimum of 3 1st round picks. And that assumes they would even be willing to take Tanne back in return to make the money work out.

    It's not like it was Downing's first year as a OC..he had the same results, so it's strike 2...do we let it get to strike 3?

    I mean, I think it's clear that we (this forum) wouldn't. The issue is that JRob and Vrabel seem to be perfectly fine with the status quo.

    One thing the Robinson has done differently than our last few GMs (and most NFL GMs) is he DOES address weaknesses on the team. Not always with the right guys, but he does pull the trigger. Firing Malarky, signing Clowney, then Dupree. Picking up Julio. Adding Foreman, and Cunningham. Drafting tackle, etc... Every single time we have gone into an off-season with a need, he has a least tried to address it.

    I'm going to wait and see. If he thinks Downing or Tannehill are holding us back, I would bet he makes some kind of moves.

    They certainly don’t rush into things. If Downing loses his job it’s because JRob and Vrabel looked at film and determined he was the right fit. Vrabel has fired a defensive coach in the past, so he can do it. But, it won’t be a quick judgement unless I am sorely mistaken.
