The Tennessee Titans are playing a game of how low can you go, and someone needs to get fired for it.
It’s amazing to think that the Tennessee Titans actually have two wins this season. Man, I feel bad for those two teams and the embarrassment they must feel having given up points in a losing effort to this squad.
Once again in Week 6, the Titans were abysmal on offense and found a way to hit a new level of suck against the Denver Broncos. A 16-0 loss in Denver means absolute rock bottom for head coach Mike Vrabel’s team.
Adding insult to injury to being shutout, the Titans allowed seven sacks to the Broncos, which is two more than the Broncos had in the first five games of the season. Through six games, Tennessee has allowed 29 sacks.
If nothing else, offensive line coach Keith Carter needs to be held responsible for a group that is not only not getting better, but is getting worse on a weekly basis. And to think, Vrabel actually gave him a vote of confidence during the week.
But the offensive ineptitude is about more than just the offensive line.
Offensive coordinator Arthur Smith doesn’t look like he knows what he’s doing out there, and we’re seeing that more and more on a weekly basis. His play designs are not helping to get his receivers open because of poor spacing, and many times make no sense based on the down and distance. He needs to go.
Along with Smith and Carter, Vrabel should at least be on the hot seat. He’s made astoundingly bad calls on multiple fourth down situations this season, and his continued faith in coaches that are a detriment to the Titans only adds fuel to the fire.
Now, I hate advocating for people to lose their jobs, but this is professional sports and this is what happens in a results-based business. The Titans are getting horrific results from their coaching staff, and something has got to give.
Whatever the Titans decide to do, whether it be coaching or even a general manager change, it needs to be significant. We are beyond the point of small, incremental changes being needed with this team.
