Titans have officially gone from good to great
Following the 2017 season, the Titans were faced with a difficult decision.
Do they stick with the head coach with a limited ceiling who just won them their first playoff game in over a decade, or do they shoot for the stars and try and land a younger head coach in hopes of taking this team to the next level?
The team eventually opted to shoot for the stars and that decision has officially paid off. When the Titans hired Mike Vrabel, they hoped they were getting someone who was capable of being a leader of men. The former Patriots star linebacker turned coach embodies that type of persona and his players feed off his intense and tough-minded personality.
Throughout the entire offseason, coach Vrabel constantly harped on his team doing what’s necessary to go from the good team they’ve been in years past to the great team they aimed to be.
Although this Titans team may have finished with a similar 9-7 record, it was obvious to anyone who actually watched the on field product that this team had made tremendous improvements in all three phases.
Regardless of what the regular season record was, the team’s ability to go from good to great was going to come down to what they do in the postseason.
Once they clinched their playoff berth in the final week of the season, they were allowed to recreate the narrative of their season, as no one in the country is talking about those seven losses right now and instead are talking about the reality of a Lombardi trophy coming to Nashville in the coming weeks.
This Titans team still has work to do before they capture the real crown, but the fact that they are in the NFL’s version of the the final four solidifies the fact that they have officially gone from good to great.
