    Agreed. But def not in favor as Williams as the HC. I would like to see an over-haul of the coaching staff including Munch, Loggains and Gray. Promote Williams as the main and only DC and perferably go after a young offensive-minded college coach.

    I know the college coaches can be hit-or-miss but enough of these middling tier, boring defensive coaches or anyone currently on the staff. The NFL is all about fast-paced, high-scoring offensive type games now. I think it's about time the Titans get the memo and bring in some up-and-coming, hot, young coach who can upstart this middling, boring franchise.

    Aren't RBs generally known as the most disposable/replaceable position in the game?

    When you have a qb that makes the defense respect the pass yet. But when u don't teams will always sell out to stop the run and then no one can succeed when that happens.

    Based on scheme, probably. Yet the best ones in the league are difference-makers.

    I'm not sure of your point. Reynaud didn't get the first down because he's not good and got little room to run. If it had been Mooney, I doubt the results change. If CJ had made the run, I think the chances were better but, behind this OL, nothing is guaranteed.

    You call the timeout and see if CJ can return. If not, then do anything but give the ball to a guy without a regular season carry -- especially when your #1 RB has struggled most of the game.

    Are you serious or a new fan? Lowry was a friend of Fisher's and a very poor coach. He was a poor special teams coach who got moved up to Rceivers coach and immediately had to stop that after all our WR's had terrible seasons. The ONLY shining moments for Lowry were the Music City Miracle and the occasional fake punts. Frequently we couldn't return it, were poor at covering returns, had FG's blocked and the only reason he lasted that long was because of Fisher. Steckel was the same!

    At least pick a guy who is a GOOD coach!!!

    Everyone gets frustrated with losses and certaintly there are some things to criticize on the coaching staff, but unless you are watching the coaches tape and can explain which plays are good and which plays are bad NOT based on the outcome, then how do you know the 'right' plays aren't being called? You also mention the right players not playing...who do you think needs replacing and why?

    Did you watch Eddie george have a great career with 8-9 stacked in the box all day long? Short of facing Peyton Manning, all defenses do what they need to to stop the run first...whether it put 8 in the box or whatever. There are many plays where we have even blocking and even THEN we are making mistakes in our blocking to let someone get free and control the gain or even put us in a negative play. You'd think Locker throwing 3 TD's in the first half would back the Jets up from loading up on our run game...they didn't. Why? Because they stop the run first.

    If you've watched some Pats games this year, defenses are loading up to stop the Pats run game even though Brady is the QB. So the answer isn't having a QB who scares them out of 8 man fronts (because you'll be waiting a decade or so for that) but rather being able to hurt them with the run or the pass and take advantage of what they are doing. They will either dare you to beat them thru the air, run it on their 8 man front, or change if you hurt them enough.

    Most people are missing the point regarding that 3rd and 1 play with Reynaud. With CJ and Battle not able to go for that play, your options are Mooney out of a Heavy run formation or Reynaud. I suspect there was miscommunication as to who was in the game at the time because it doesn't make much sense to have Reynaud in a Heavy set on 3rd and 1. He is a space player and short of us blowing them off the ball, he was gonna have to fight thru contact.

    The real question is, he they knew Reynaud was in the game, why not come out in 4 WR's to spread them out. Or come out and at least do that fake it to the fullback up the middle and then pitch out to Reynaud who can outrun the DE or make the CB miss?

    OR, go play action.

    OR, has anyone watched the Pats, Saints or Peyton Manning? He lives for short yardage plays where defenders play man and bump and run. How about a pick play or a rub play or a WR bubble screen or a slant or a drag...

    Putting in a light space player to run behind a Heavy formation when we havent been running well (should read not blocking well) is a bad idea.

    Poor playcall with that personel IMHO. Lots of better options...even go empty backfield with 4wr's and Walker and let them try to match up!
