Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson was pretty excited about his team’s victory over the defending Super Bowl champions on Saturday night.

The man responsible for putting a Tennessee Titans team together that defeated the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots on Saturday night in the Wild Card round, general manager Jon Robinson, was about as pumped as you’d expect him to be after the win.

Of course, Robinson doesn’t do it all by himself, but he pushes the buttons on roster decisions, and in particular draft picks, trades and free agency signings.

Robinson was responsible for drafting a rookie class in 2019 that featured multiple steals like wide receiver A.J. Brown and defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons, and it was ranked No. 1 by Pro Football Focus.

We can also talk about draft picks from past years like star safety Kevin Byard and linebackers Jayon Brown and Rashaan Evans, to name a few, or a free agent signing like cornerback Logan Ryan.

Perhaps most importantly, he pulled the trigger on a trade that landed the Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who helped save Tennessee’s season after a 2-4 start and has finally given the franchise a stable solution under center.

By the way, the Miami Dolphins are picking up the majority of the money being paid to him this season.

Robinson, who used to work for the Patriots in lesser roles years ago, was obviously excited in the locker room after his team pulled off an upset on the road in Foxborough against the Bill Belichick-led Patriots (Warning: NSFW language).

I love the energy from Robinson, and it’s certainly understandable. His team might have ended the Patriots’ dynasty and can officially write this season off as a major success because of it.

Make no mistake about it: it isn’t easy to do what the Titans did on Saturday night, no matter how vulnerable the Pats looked.

Robinson certainly wasn’t alone, as Titans fans at a viewing party in Nashville erupted after Tennessee sealed the deal over New England.

No matter what happens in what will be an uphill battle against the Baltimore Ravens, the future is incredibly bright for Tennessee, and that’s because Robinson has made so many great moves in the past few years to put this team in that position.

Tennessee will have a lot of decisions to make on its own free agents in 2020, but it’s nice to know that the franchise is in good hands.
