    He should be used to it by now :laugh:

    Division champs and a 2K rusher. This team is so so so close to being elite

    yeah. He's on IR. This year really couldn't have gone worse for him. Seemed like he turned down better offers to come to TN. Probably a combo of not being his old self and our defensive system being garbage

    in a ranking of defenses at The Athletic, Titans ranked exactly where you'd expect them to:

    14. Tennessee Titans
    Just about the only good thing this defense did during the regular season was produce takeaways. Tennessee got a turnover on 13.7 percent of opponents’ possessions, which ranked seventh. But you can’t always count on turnovers, and the Titans were never sound enough this year to get consistent stops. They gave up 32 downfield completions, which ranked 29th. Tennessee finished the regular ranked 29th in DVOA and 30th against the pass, and there’s little reason to believe they can improve on that performance in the postseason. The Titans are going to have to piece it together defensively by capitalizing on turnover opportunities and getting stops in the red zone.

    I really hope that we dont embarrass ourselves today with our shitty defense. Let’s run Henry like crazy and shorten the game.

    He will shrug it off with the typical bullshit coach speak but that is absolutely inexcusable. His entire press conference should just be questions about that and his dumb dumb dumb decision to not hire a DC.

    We were a half away from making the super bowl last year and we regressed significantly. Same old Titans

    Really gonna miss tuning in each Sunday expecting to score 40

    OL needs to get and stay healthy. Secondary and pass rush need to be completely overhauled

    Won the AFC South which really makes me happy. But wow to flame out like that is a huge bummer. We played caveman football today

    This. We significantly overachieved last year so I wouldn't say we regressed that much, but we failed to improve where needed. The Isaiah Wilson pick looks like a disaster and the secondary is a complete joke. King is average. Butler, Byard, and Borders are god-awful. Adoree looks like shit. Vaccaro is average. Hard to say how much better we would have been if Lewan stayed healthy, but the lack of OL depth was on display today. We need to revamp the entire secondary, add an elite edge rusher, and stack OL depth - which means we'll probably draft an MLB or WR in the first or some dumb shit.

    That's all on Robinson.

    I've hated that pick since the draft. "Oh his return ability makes him worth it"... he proceeds to not have a return a TD of any kind. Career long PR is like 43 and KR is like 57. He's got more lost fumbles than INTs.

    TE coach Todd Downing likely to be named OC. Promoting the TE coach worked last time

    Kinda hesitant to believe it'll work out again

    Promoting Bowen to full time DC is an absolutely disastrous decision. At least you can somewhat make the argument for the internal hire for OC for continuity sake. No argument whatsoever to not bring in someone else on defense after the shitty product that was put on the field all season.

    Same. Old. Titans.

    Titans were one of 15 teams since 2006 that didn't have a single rookie play at least 300 snaps

    Vrabel must have serious trust and/or control issues. So bummed about this DC news. It's totally unacceptable to me

    Titans general manager Jon Robinson addressed Wilson's status during a virtual news conference with the local media Tuesday. He didn't seem pleased with how the 2020 season ended for Wilson, who played only four snaps last year despite being the 29th-overall pick.

    "We put him on the reserve/non-football injury list and haven't spoken to him since. He's going to have to make a determination on whether he wants to do what it takes to play pro football. That will be on him," Robinson said when asked about Wilson.

    "I know what the expectation level is here, and it's no different than any other player on the football team. We have a certain standard that we want players to prepare and perform at professionally, and as people, and there's a lot of work to be done there," he said.

    Robinson said the Titans did extensive research on Wilson leading up to the draft and liked what they saw. They spent time with Wilson at the NFL scouting combine, where the 6-foot-6, 350-pound player first sized up coach Mike Vrabel during a meeting. Robinson joked that Wilson's chuckle reminded him of Hall of Fame wrestler Andre the Giant.

    A lot has changed since their first impression of Wilson, and there is likely some degree of buyer's remorse.

    "We did a lot of work on him leading up to the draft. The player that was here in the fall was not the player we evaluated," Robinson said.

    maybe the most explicit acknowledgement from Robinson that the draft/free agency was a total failure last offseason

    We picked up Adoree's 5th-year but can release him before March 17 and clear $10.24 million in salary and not have any dead money charges

    Could also save $10.2 million by releasing Butler and nearly $5 million by releasing Humphries

    Given we have just $4.5 million in cap space we're gonna have to get creative if we want to address the pass rush. I'm not too optimistic (:shocker:) we'll be successful doing so
