    Paper doesn’t win games. We are both 0-1 and both looked bad.

    Yeah- they are not as bad a team as they looked for sure. But let's also hold them accountable, they looked REALLY REALLY REALLY bad. Outcoached. Outschemed. Outexecuted. IN ALL THREE PHASES. y

    We had two drops in the endzone- one by our HOF, premiere FA acquisition. That's pathetic. So yeah- this team is probably a little better than pathetic. Let's see what happens next week when it will be even tougher on this team.

    Vrabel doesn’t mind calling a player out when it’s warranted.

    Jones was flagged 15 yards for unnecessary roughness in the first quarter Sunday after he swung at Arizona Cardinals cornerback Byron Murphy. The Titans threw an incomplete pass on the ensuing third down, forcing them to punt while already trailing 10-0.

    "Critical mistake," Vrabel said. "That's absolutely nothing that we coach or teach. So, that would fall into the category of doing dumb **** that hurts the team, right there in bold letters. It goes from third-and-1 to third-and-16."

    Will be interesting to see how Julio responds to that. I’m sure he hasn’t had many moments in his career that have resulted in a coach publicly putting him on blast. We will see if he really is a team first guy.

    He easily had the worst Titans debut, considering the hype, of all time yesterday. He was horrible. He left the field after his dropped TD pass too. I also wonder why Lewan was on the sidelines during the game.

    Vrabel is right. We will find out what kind of culture we have built this week. How do we respond?

    Dumb s**t that hurts the team and that was a week 1, 15 yard penalty early in a game.
    How does he feel about promoting a failure of a DC to the head DC position?
    I’d have to think that qualifies as worse than the Julio Jones penalty.

    Well, as a failure of a DC who was promoted to head coach, I'm sure he's fine with it.

    He's not. He's a guy that will play hard when the going is good, but if things get tough he's not a gamer. I just hope that doesn't rub off on AJ, because AJ idollized him growing up.

    Where do you get that from? That’s literally never been the take on him. His career stats don’t show that. He had great seasons on really bad Falcons teams.
