Titans make unexpected, but decidedly necessary coaching move

The Titans made a surprise move on Wednesday deciding to part with long time player, coach and front office member Marcus Robertson. Robertson is best known for his days starting at free safety opposite Blaine Bishop. His career with the organization has been less than stellar since his contributions shifted from on the field to off it.

Lets be honest this move was painfully necessary. The secondary has been bad for a few years now. I will give Robertson a bit of a break, he is working with the least amount of talent of any coach in the NFL at the position he coaches. Cortland Finnegan may be THE single most overrated player at his position in the NFL and the team has continued to force feed Chris Hope to us even when he is incapable of playing the strong safety position( in truth the Titans don’t have an actual strong safety on the roster). Combine this with the probable loss of Michael Griffin in free agency and nothing but youth around the room in the secondary and Munchak is just getting ahead of things before they become obvious to the public.

The secondary for the Titans has been a siv for years that was hidden by an amazing pass rush. This position is in dire need of an overhaul. Looks like the rebuild is going to include the coaches too.

    Finnegan overrated? i about stopped reading their, but continued to read this garbage. first, our secondary has suffered sense we lost schwartz as our d coordinator. after that we went to an extremely aggressive style, which left griffin and hope in bad situations.(Griffin before this was a top flight safety. This year we went to a very soft defense, which isn’t easy to change philosophy with no offseason. Hope was hurt half the year, and when returned our defense improved.

    but on finnegan…. Overrated???? lame. He didn’t pick off passes or start fights, and if you think thats what makes him good, then your dumb. he was our leader on defense(captian), he made play after play playing the nickel, which was a new position for him, and if we lose him, who is our number one? verner? he played well at times, but he cannot guard a number one WR, or a speedy one like when he was burned all day against mike wallace. Our secondary hasn’t been the best but it starts upfront, which when they started to play well late in the year our secondary looked a lot better. and a great pass rush??? when last year?? no.. one guy got sacks, and he was overrated anyway… our secondary has suffered from our OVERRATED front 7, which has suffered sense losing all 3 of our starting LB’s. Tullock Bullock and Thortan.

    you obviously do not watch the games, and its a shame that you are allowed to comment on the TN Titans.

    we need griffin and especially Finnegan to stay as Titans.

    @bulletproofrew I’d agree with you on Finnegan. Not so much Hope. If Finnegan were to leave, McCourty would step up as the #1 cornerback. He’s got speed and showed a great presence back there this year.

    Schwartz was a huge loss to this team, no doubt.
