    I’ll concede 1 short drive that I don’t blame the D, the strip sack. Otherwise:

    5 scoring drives, all 55+ yards, 3 were 10+ plays, allowed 50% 3rd down conversions(7/14), allowed 100% 4th down (3/3), zero takeaways, 2 sacks, allowed over 400 yards, blew a 14 pt lead.

    The D should be hammered. Personally, your post is not giving them their due credit for playing so poorly, Again!

    He’s showing improvement for sure, but I definitely thought that was an obvious PI....but I’m not at it. It was the smart play. His guy had him beat for what would have been an uncontested TD, so he gave the push and put the ball on the 1-Yard line and gives the defense a chance to limit points. That’s the correct thing to do in that scenario considering the alternative is to give up 6 points right then and there.

    Vrabel pulled another Billchick move. I believe that was the 12 man on the field penalty.

    I was thinking about King yesterday and where he might end up relative other great RBs. He has potential to be a Top 10 RB of all time on this team with great QB play coaching and health of course. It would be nice to have our first “true” Titan universally considered a league legend and possibly even HOFer.

    Vrabel’s mind when it comes to managing the game in unorthodox ways is amazing! He doesn’t get enough credit IMO!

    He was great before Butler went down and he was asked to play out of position. Logan is a very good slot corner and a very bad outside corner.

    Seeing Vrabel's expression after the penalty, the way he played it off tells me he doesn't want anyone talking about this. I thought the same thing too and discussed it with other titan fans, but when my friends called me telling me what Vrabel did I was acting like Vrabel. I dont want other teams to find out and try stuff like this. By this afternoon its going to be all over nfl network and we won't be able to use it again if we need to.

    Glad to have a coach who knows how to use those kind of details for us.

    I don't think it has been talked about much but what about that Vrabel 12th-man move that saved time and Crennel's decision to go for two?

    The Vrabel move was brilliant and not the first time he's done it.

    Some argue Crennel should have kicked the XP and forced the Titans to score and make two to tie. The way the Texans were moving the ball, I don't think it was the wrong call. Two there puts the game away.
