4. Mike Vrabel’s coaching
Head coach Mike Vrabel has had his fair share of coaching blunders throughout his short head coaching career. Last season he practically lost a game in London due to his all-or-nothing mentality.
You would hope he would have learned his lesson that points are hard to come by in the NFL and you need to cash in when you can. However, it is evident that he is always going to go against the grain and dance to the beat of his own drum.
In the Week 3 Thursday Night Football game in Jacksonville, Mike Vrabel once again outsmarted himself. Down 14, the Titans finally began to show some life on a drive in the third quarter. The drive ultimately stalled out near the end-zone, and rather than take the easy three points he decided to send his offense back out there to attempt a fourth-and-6.
Keep in mind we are talking about an offense that has been abysmal on third downs all year long. The fact that he would trust this offense to convert that is mind-boggling.
Vrabel has shown his moments of coaching brilliance during his short tenure in Tennessee, but he has to clean up these overly-aggressive tendencies and coach smarter in crucial situations if he is ever going to maximize his potential as the Titans head coach
