    Is Vrabel on the hot seat? We know that for an NFL GM having "their guy" as head coach is far more important than having a good head coach. Given the way the titans ended last year, the lack of success this year and the "his guy" factor I think Vrabel is very much on the hot seat.

    Other factors working against Vrabel:
    1. Incestuous coaching staff: this can work in College football (teams like Iowa and Clemson) but it tends not to work in the NFL. Vrabel does not want an assistant or coordinator who hasn't spent at least a year with the team in a lower position
    2. OL and Secondary have consistently underperformed under Vrabel. The Secondary is of particular concern as there has been talent back there but they often suck. Is it a coincidence that these are the two groups where playing as a unit is most important

    Is Vrabel in danger of being replaced?

    Ran to replace Vrabel as HC? That's a step down isn't it?

    If NE wants him, deal him...imo Vrabel has run his course ,we need an offensive minded HC

    I think Vrabel has run his course as well. His coaching style is suspect at this point on both offense and defense. His culture of take the day off is a real problem. His input on player potential is really bad. The biggest problem is his "buddy" system.

    My vote is
    no, and he shouldnt.

    if NE is willing to give us picks for him, absolutely.
    otherwise next season will be his last.

    Ran is the GM and he will eventually want the power of being GM and not just a scapegoat for Vrabel.

    Wish we could move on from him. Don't care for him and his antics at all.

    I want an offensive minded HC who is able to call his own plays and is smart enough to hire one of the best defensive coordinators out there.

    I'm a huge fan of Kevin O'Connell. Wish he was available.

    Unfortunately we're stuck with Vrabel until he wants to leave. There's just such deep roots within the City of Nashville, Titans organization and the fanbase to let me know Vrabel isn't going anywhere.
