My point in this thread is to talk about Schwartz's ability to coach. I did some research and my findings were very interesting. People who seem to defend Schwartz say that our rankings don't tell the whole story of how well our defense is playing. They say that most of the yards and points he allows are "garbage" yards & points. Some people say we don't have any talent. There are a few vocal posters here that want him gone. There are a few who in vain try to defend him beyond all reproach. Still after 6 years here, our defense is still struggling. Sure, I understand we went through the salary cap purge last year, and two of his years we were decimated by injuries. Ultimately, I don't like excuses. Every coach in the NFL deals will adversity. It's a part of the NFL lexicon. At the end of the day, results are the only thing that matters. And the proof is in the numbers. Since the salary cap came into effect in 1994, the average rank of Superbowl champ in scoring defense was 3.25. The real truth of the matter is there hasn't been a super bowl champs to have a scoring defense rank of greater than 8th in the league. Since Schwartz took over the defense in 2001, the Titans’ average scoring defense rank was 22.83. 22nd in the league average over a 6 year time frame, and this guy still has his job. The real damning evidence that Schwartz just doesn’t get it is that he made the 2nd rank scoring defense in 2000 turn into the 11th rank within two years. I will discount the 2001 season as injuries, but considering he took over that year, I really wonder. I don’t harbor delusions of grandeur hoping that G. Williams will come back to us. And if you’re wondering, the average rank of Gregg’s defenses in his four years was 10.25. And he left at the height of most of the Titans' defensive careers. You see people; we will never win a Superbowl with Schwartz as our DC. He has had six years of opportunities here. Schwartz was a failed experiment, and Jeff Fisher is too loyal and too stubborn to admit he was wrong to promote Jim. Jim does not defy the laws of physics here. The bottom line is that no matter how you slice it, defensive scoring rank is probably the most important stat to gauge SB success. So forget the "garbage" time yards and points. They do matter. I am giddy we have turned our season around. Rest assured Schwartz doesn't have a lot to do with it. I credit Vince and our offense more than Schwartz. Schwartz needs to be replaced at the end of the year if we ever want go to that next level. I fear this turnaround may be his saving grace. I hope not.
