    Pretty obvious this whole "Patriots of the South" thing is not going to work, especially when we keep signing players the Patriots let go for more money than New England would have paid for them. I do like Logan Ryan though, as he's the only one that has really worked out.

    I hate rebuilding as much as the next guy, but this team is hot garbage on offense thanks to Vrabel and Robinson accepting mediocrity in the form of Arthur Smith and bad OL management. I'm sorry, but we don't need a guy like Mike Vrabel, who had no head coaching experience prior, to be the guy leading this team. Hell, he wasn't even that good of a defensive coordinator. And Jon Robinson? Drafting bust after bust after bust with our top picks. Or trading up so we have a total of 4 picks in one draft. WTF? Extending Ben Jones, signing Dion Lewis (who sucks) and Butler (also sucks), not addressing the OL issues when it became known Lewan would be out for the first four games, the list goes on and on. I really don't know what the team can do now to fix things. Luck and Foles being out should at least put us in the top two of the AFC South, but after just 3 games, we're clearly last.

    Just wanted to get your guys' thoughts. Being a Titans fan right now sucks. Seeing QBs like Mahomes and Jackson lead explosive offenses leads me to believe it's time for an overhaul. Back up the money truck to Lincoln Riley and his staff. Do whatever it takes. Especially if he somehow turns Jalen Hurts into a good passer. We need a bright offensive mind, not some guy who rose through the coaching ranks because he was a Patriot and is a "player's coach."

    So you think by season's end we'll be on a positive trajectory?

    I hope so, if we fire everyone week 3 then certainly not.

    Just saying when we don't make the playoffs yet again under Vrabel, it's time.

    Butler's biggest problem is that last moment when the ball arrives. He'll do a great job of staying with his guy and get his head around and everything and still lose the one on one for the ball.

    I'd like to see a change of direction of our WR. Where they all change their routes towards the pocket where they pickup the ball before anyone can get there.

    Since this team became the Titans - and a little before - even through all the coaching, GM and player changes... some things remain consistent...

    Offensive style, type of players, defensive deficiencies (inability to tackle), and just general philosophy.

    These may change slightly, but at the end of every season, it seems the same issues over and over.

    Why is that? Are all the hires based around wanting employees with a particular style of football in mind? And then it trickles down from there.

    Maybe THEREIN lies the real problem. This organization hires only if "they" agree with the owner instead of being swayed in a possibly different direction.

    If that's the case... it truly is "topdown" and we will never be successful unless we have a superstar roster.
