    Here’s an interesting factoid, Westbrook-Ikhine had the best run blocking grade on the whole team (Brewer was second). At 84.3 run blocking grade on 173 snaps, Westbrook-Ikhine rated 9th in the league among WRs.

    Lewan and Tannehill are the only Titans not drafted by JRob.

    Russell Dean Pees left this team as the DC in 2019 and now he's the DC for the Falcons. How did our GM let that happen? I think Pees made our defensive talent look a lot better than what they were! We have to draft better players and that's on JR.

    Pees retired from the Ravens first. He clearly is unsure from year to year what he wants. I can’t blame Vrabel for not wanting someone who can not commit to the team. Bowen? Well, we all are uncertain about him as well. We do need a more thoughtful approach to FA and more drafts like 2019 and less like 2020. On the clock? I’d rather have him on the phone. Calling good players to join our team.

    From all accounts Bowen was doing it last year, and the results were terrible. Yes we had some player issues, but there was plenty of coaching issues. Playing 10 yards and farther, off the wr's. When we were not getting any pressure not blitzing. Pees clearly has a better feel for defensive play calling and masking our weakness. We need an overall to talent on defense, players and coaching, lets hope we get 50 percent of that. It appears more of the same with coaching.

    It’s not the GMs job. It the HCs job.

    The defense wasn’t that much better under Pees wind and the stats prove that. Talent matters. When you don’t have much it doesn’t matter who is coaching.

    You think the Chiefs win a Super Bowl with Mariota at QB? IF it’s coaching why didn’t the Patriots end up in the SB again?

    Bowen may suck, I’m not defending him. But brushing off the lack of talent and the injuries of last season is obtuse and silly. Having talent matters.

    This whole argument about playing 10 yards off a WRs is BS. That’s call off man coverage and most MFL teams deploy it. It today’s league they take away the deep ball and concede the short pass. The Titans are forced to play off coverage because of the lack of speed on defense ( talent ) on defense. IMHO it boils down to 2 things. Lack of practice or coaching time due to COVID and a pass rush. If you have a pass rush you don’t need to worry as much about the deep ball because the QB just doesn’t have time and the DBs can play more man or press coverage.

    Are we talking about Pro Bowlers only?

    Yeah in the last 5 years. Maybe Kern if he made one but I can’t remember if he did or not.

    But JRob extended all those guys and traded a 4th for Tannehill so he should still get some credit.

    I agree with most of your post. However, we did seem to play farther off wr than most teams. Case in point was the Pittsburgh game, Big Ben killed us ( as many teams did) with slants and quick screens to wr. The second half we did better because we blitzed and tightened that up at least some. The Browns game we played off and just let Baker do what he wanted. I do believe the defense was better under Pees we were ranked 12th in the nfl in 2019 giving 20.7 points per game. This year 2020 we gave up nearly 31 points a game and nearly last against the pass, and last in sacks. I do agree players and injury played a part but the defense was better under Pees to me and by the stats.
