    I think we'll see Loggains the OC next season. Here's why…

    If the Titans feel he's a young, talented coach (as they said when he was given the job), he hardly had the opportunity to show what he can do in the few games he was the OC. He had to work with Palmer's playbook with few modifications. He had to work with a less than 100% Locker and, in the final few games, a depleted OL.

    I don't see any way they can know how well Loggains can do without an offseason and camp to install his ideas into the offense. Meaning, if they believed in him before, there isn't enough information to change that opinion.

    Maybe Moore is retained but I think he was just around to help in the transition.

    Here's another reason…

    With a new OC, Locker has to learn an entirely new offense instead of having someone like Loggains who already knows Locker and can modify the current scheme to better suit him.

    Having to learn a new offense will set Locker back and, instead of focusing on his mechanics, reading defenses, etc., he'd have to spend a lot more time/study learning a new offense.

    Munch knows his future is tied to the arm of Jake Locker. What gives him the best shot to make that happen? IMO, they'll think it's Loggains.

    We might see some changes with a few offensive position coaches as we've had happen today. This may be Loggains beginning to put his guys in place for next season.

    I agree. It makes the most sense as far as Jake's progress goes. And as you point out Munchak is tied to Jake so he's gonna want to keep things as familiar as possible. I'm not totally against it either, but I definitely wanna see him build the offense around Jake's strengths.

    The best thing, IMO, would be to keep Moore around as well. The guys has probably forgotten more football than most OCs will ever learn.

    Moore at 75 is a young whipper-snapper to Bud. He might be willing to be the OC with Loggains moving back to QB coach and being groomed for '14.

    I've been leaning more toward making Moore our OC and sending Loggains back to QBs coach. Munchak has already said that Moore wants to be an OC again and if that's the case then I do see him wanting to stick around as just a consultant.

    Moore is old and looks like he's been dead twice before.

    Loggains is short, and inexperienced, thats all I have.

    I don't hate the idea of retaining Loggains, he sounds like he's smart enough to make it work for us, but there's just nothing suggesting he's got the goods.

    How do we pass up a guy like Norv Turner for Loggains? That's crazy to me. Turner might be the best play caller out there, we should try to get him.

    I've been saying Loggains would be back ever since we found out Munch is staying.

    I think it's extremely likely Gray will be back too. Good times ahead fellas. :beerbang:
