NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Greetings. I hope you had an excellent weekend and that your countdown to the Super Bowl is on.

I'm, still not sure how I feel about the game, though I am leaning Bucs right now.

If you're in Tennessee or another state where betting is green-lighted, I've got a great offer for you to join FanDuel.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- He values continuity so much, and considers his people so fantastic, that Mike Vrabel didn't see fit to go outside the organization but for one hire: an assistant defensive line coach.

Yeah, Kenechi Udeze will fix it.

Hiring Todd Downing as the tight ends coach -- from the OUTSIDE -- in 2019 to replace Arthur Smith when Smith was elevated to offensive coordinator was smart. It showed foresight. It lined up things for a scenario in case Smith ultimately moved on.

Which of today's moves is like that one?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Mike Vrabel will soon hire a tight ends coach, as he is elevating Todd Downing to replace Arthur Smith as the Titans' offensive coordinator, Tom Pelissero reports and I've confirmed.Downing

Downing was hired in 2019 to replace Smith when he was elevated to replace Matt LaFleur as the team’s offensive play-caller. Now, with Smith the new coach in Atlanta, Downing will be Tennessee's third play-called in four seasons.

Vrabel's move again provides the Titans with continuity.

Downing spent 2015-2017 with the Raiders and was their offensive coordinator in the final year of the Jack Del Rio regime.

That offense was not especially good: 18th overall, 16th in passing, 25th in rushing and 23rd in points averaging 18.8.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- In his three years as Titans’ coach, Mike Munchak worked under Bud Adams in his waning years, which made things difficult for the Hall of Famer in some respects.

After the Vince Young-Jeff Fisher drama played out with both ultimately gone following the 2010 season, Munchak was hired very late in the cycle – Feb. 7, 2011.

Having spent his playing and coaching career exclusively with the Oilers and Titans and coached exclusively under Fisher, he didn’t have widespread connections to use when putting together a staff, and with that super-late start, the pool of available coaches was limited.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Is Isaiah Wilson a blip or a flashing neon sign?

The Titans’ flop of a first-round pick in 2020 creates a major concern regarding the Titans’ ability to continue to identify guys who “love ball,” a characteristic they state as a primary, fundamental element in what they want.RobinsonBills

This post from December packages up just how bad a misread they had on Wilson: Titans have to cringe at what they said about Isaiah Wilson on draft night.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Last year seemed like it would bring a great deal of quarterback tumult, but ultimately outside of the Tom Brady move and the draft, it wasn’t as wild as anticipated.

This time around is going to be different.

As of today, only 12 teams are locked in (and, in all but maybe two cases, in love with) with their starting quarterbacks – just 38 percent of the NFL.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Hello all. Hope you enjoyed the games and had a big weekend.

Impressively, I picked both games wrong.

Let's discuss some of the things that are on your mind.

Jon Robinson is certainly free to suggest anything he wants, and Mike Vrabel can take him up on things.
