    Maybe we could hire Wisenhunt as OC...

    Can't really remember how well he did with the Steelers.

    Loved Wash, but he'd probably come back and go wide 9 again. I want a nose tackle and want to make the switch to the 3-4 so pass.

    That's funny about the run defense. I thought that used to be our thing. From Wikipedia:

    "Washburn was hired by the Tennessee Titans as their defensive line coach in 1999. During his 12-year tenure with the Titans, the team ranked seventh in sacks with 474 and fifth in run defense thanks to Washburn's defensive line.[1]"

    I can't speak to the early 2000s because that was before I was a fan, but I don't think you'll find anyone who would argue that Washburn's D-line was atrocious in run support during his last few years with the Titans.
