Getting philosophical. For progress to be made, someone must make a hard evaluation of themself. In the case of a team like the Titans, I don’t have to remind anyone of how long a drought there was from the end of the ‘08 season until Mike Mularkey turned things around (a coaching decision made by the owner). This is not to necessarily start another argument on our current coaching situation. Only to offer that, as bad as the Titans were for so long, the Mularkey Way had more than enough success to warrant a return to finish out his contract. For a team that had struggled to win for so long, to prematurely jettison the man steering them in the right way is a bad omen for the future and unravels progress made. And for Jon Robinson to announce Mularkey’s successor would be a “Leader of Men” was a huge insult to the man who stood by his players and got things turned around here. Again, this doesn’t appear to me to be a step towards progress but the opposite. Maybe these last 5 games will show me something different.
