The Titans advance to AFC Championship game, shocking the nation with win against exhilarating Ravens. Here’s three reasons why Mike Vrable should be undisputed Coach Of The Year.
- Reviving Tannehill’s career after benching Marcus Mariota: Vrable’s decision to bench Starting Quarterback Mariota for Tannehill was extremely risky, It definitely paid off. Tannehill led the Titans to win vs. Patriots and ended the Patriots’ dynasty.
- Clock management: Vrable used his acumen in clock management to defeat the Patriots.
- The Titans are Playoff winners two weeks in a row: The Titans beat the Patriots and Ravens and increased their chance ro win the Championship ( or allowing the Chiefs to advance to the Super Bowl).
Today’s Ravens’ loss shows they have a fundamental football problem, Lamar Jackson. It’s crucial for Jackson to spend the offseason developing further as a pass and less of rushing. They got beat tonight because Jackson’s rushing attack was completely neutralized. Harbaugh needs to draw up an updated scheme to incorporate a ficus on pocket passing and passing outside the pocket. Ravens definitely had another stellar season though. If they focus on the skills I outlined above, they will have a better opportunity to win in the Playoffs.
