There might not be a coach in the NFL who preaches accountability more than Tennessee Titans HC Mike Vrabel. However, there might not be anyone in the NFL who is more inconsistent about enforcing that mantra.
In 2021 Mike Vrabel won the Coach of the Year award largely because he helped the team overcome a historic number of injuries at key positions and guided the Tennessee Titans to the #1 seed. He deserved that award.
While that award has shielded him from criticism this year, that goodwill is about to run out with fans.
The problem is, you should give a coach credit for overcoming tough situations, but you have to criticize him when he doesn’t address any of the issues at the root of those problems, and we are seeing the repercussions of that now.
Right now the majority of Tennessee Titans fans are crying over spilled milk about a trade that A.J. Brown forced instead of looking at what can be fixed with the team right now.
To help change the conversation, I wanted to bring up three changes that can have an immediate impact on this roster.
Time for the Tennessee Titans to make a change
Let me start off by saying that there are some things that you just can’t change right now.
You can’t heal Harold Landry or Taylor Lewan, and you can’t completely fire and improve the medical staff.
What is done is done and you have to look at the current roster and maybe free agency to figure out some solutions to these issues.
Also, it would be a little bit cheap to say “bring Kyle Philips, Racey McMath, and Jamarco Jones back from I.R.” because we don’t know where they are from a health standpoint.
So with those restrictions, let’s talk about solutions.
