    "After Pees committed to follow Arthur Smith to Atlanta, Mike Vrabel offered him a chance to return to Tennessee. However, the Titans sought Pees in a consultant-type role instead of a return to their DC post, Paul Kuharsky of PaulKuharsky.com reports."

    It's funny because the website is called "Pro Football Rumors" but I'll give PK credit. He's a reliable source. That said, we made an offer AFTER he agreed to go to Atlanta. That's like breaking up with your girl then hitting her up after she starts dating someone else. What I said all along was we should of brought him back LAST YEAR. Mid season. After things post Pees clearly weren't working. Then reports actually came out saying he wanted to come back last year. We should of pulled the trigger then.

    PK also says we offered him a consultant role, which if Pees wants the full DC position, only plays to the Vrabel is stubborn rhetoric.

    Vrabel offers him a consultant role after he commits to Atlanta as DC? No wonder Pees said no

    Good read. Interesting. Maybe we finally have the chicken-or-the-egg answer to Belichick>Brady.

    Obviously he tries to coach the offense and ST. He's the HC. Let's be clear tho, Vrabel is no Belichick. I never thought he would interfere with Pees, but I think letting him walk when our competitive window is open, not bringing Pees back, and not hiring a DC last year, is a strong indication that Vrabel wants to put his fingerprints on the D. Now finally promoting Bowen without even interviewing other options (outside of the Rooney requirement), pretty much confirms it. This is going to be his D. It's like Jerry Jones refusing to hire a good GM because he wants the credit. It feels like that.

    If Pees wanted the full DC he shouldn’t have retired.... I mean cmon man. He put himself in that spot.

    Pees retired and left the team. If he wanted it that badly (DC job) he wouldn’t have retired.

    Yeah because people don't miss it and rethink retirement lol

    There were rumors he wanted back involved was the point. Vrabel said he didn't want to ask him to unretire a 2nd time...until he committed to Atlanta then he was ok asking him to?

    Nah. We shoulda just promoted Shane Bowen and stuck our tongue out at Pees. Having one of the worst defenses in the league next season is going to really show that guy who knows their stuff!
