The Tennessee Titans have not had the best start to the 2022 season, losing their first two games including a 41-7 thrashing by the Buffalo Bills.
This kind of struggle has been unusual for the team under Mike Vrabel. Sure, they have lost games to teams that they should have beaten on paper, but they rarely follow that up with another egg.
In fact, this start is even more uncharacteristic of Mike Vrabel’s time as the Tennessee Titans head coach because it is the first time they have started 0-2 under him and that record includes the worst loss during his tenure as the head coach during that Monday night game.
The Titans came into the year expected to take a step back after underachieving in their last playoff game and trading AJ Brown in the offseason, so this could be a long season with lots of questions to answer at the end of it.
Even after avoiding the dreaded 0-3 with a win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, many of the issues still remain, but this is not the first time that they have been in this situation under Vrabel.
Is history repeating itself with the Tennessee Titans?
If you read the title of this article, you know that I am talking about the 2019 campaign that still remains one of the strangest seasons in Tennessee Titans’ history.
To say things were looking bleak at the beginning of 2019 would be an understatement, as the team started 2-4 and had just decided to bench Marcus Mariota after a 16-0 shutout to the Denver Broncos.
But we all know what happened after that, and it is the biggest reason why you should not call this a lost season right now. So, after getting some optimism in the form of an AFC win on Sunday, let’s take a look at what the mindset of the team (and Tennessee Titans fans) should be from here on out.
