  • Titans negotiating an extension with Mularkey. Not great long term, but firing a coach after going to the divisional round of the playoffs and dominating the AFC South wouldn't exactly make the job more desirable.

      Who would they replace Tomlin with that would be a certain upgrade? That's a question that I don't have the answer to. And it's tough to justify firing a coach after a 13 win season. That usually doesn't work too well.

      Lebeau to Butler was a very slight upgrade. The only upgrade is that Butler will play talented young players over older guys who have clearly lost a step. But it's not anywhere near good enough.

        Oh, I don't have a coach to replace him in mind. I just think he's worn out his usefulness. I also think he is what is keeping Butler from stepping out from Lebeau's shadow more.

            Just because of the Steelers getting beaten?

            I mean, it was to the Jags, which is pretty bad.

                Whoops. Apparently the front office wanted Robiskie out at OC and Mularkey wasn't willing to make that happen.

                  I like Mularkey, but am conflicted about this. Will need more info before deciding on my ridiculously strident position regarding the subject.

                    Partially. I want the Jags to go all the way and hoist the Lombardi, but the MIN v NO game was superb and we got to see something amazing.

                      I have friends/relatives who like both Minny and NO, so I'll have to root for MIN from here on.

                        • Alabama LB Mekhi Brown transfers to Tennessee State. He was the guy that got into with coaches on the sideline.

                            I'm not surprised. Saban probably told him to gtfo.
