Wait, Paul knows the timing, @tgo?

Yes. He said on the radio today he knows but can't share.

Lol. Arthur Smith, come on down! 

 

Seriously though, pretty disappointing result from the outside looking in. If Arthur blew them away, why wait until now? Just looks bad and seems they showed no interest in top guys like Kubiak, DeFilippo, Caldwell, etc. 

 

Smith may turn out to be great, but as usual with this team, the "search" just feels weird and while I'll give Arthur a fair shake, it just doesn't inspire confidence with how it went down.

I think Robinson and Vrabel have really specific expectations about these things and know exactly what they want - not interested in "searches"! Hah. 

 

Belichick style.

Kinda feels like the Mularkey hiring.

We're not behind the scenes

 Read he had his hands in the run game more than passing

Maybe they are "grilling" him behind the scenes about the passing game to see if he is up to snuff, but that raises the question about how do you grill somebody to determine if they are more expert than you-- especially when you are a HC who was a DC and "only" caught 12 TD passes in an entire career... 🤣

Well the only thing he's offered up so far between his site and radio is: 

 

Smith is the only internal candidate and is on the shortlist

 

The timing of the announcement, which Paul knows but can't share, in his mind rules out it being a current playoff coach. He says there's only about a 20% chance that it's a playoff coach. 

 

He's ruled out: Helfrich, Cooter, Brian Callahan, Groh. 

 

This is so bizarre

See, this doesn't even make sense...

 

"The timing of the announcement, which Paul knows but can't share, in his mind rules out it being a current playoff coach. He says there's only about a 20% chance that it's a playoff coach."

 

So, he supposedly knows the timing of the announcement (LOL!), which therefore would rule out that it's a playoff coach.  But then he says there's still a 20% chance it's a playoff coach?!

 

Sounds like PK is trying to make people think he knows something, but he doesn't know shit.

It could be that either the announcement is on Saturday so theoretically it could be a guy who is eliminated. Or that even if the announcement is Sunday, he doesn’t think he’ll hire someone without interviewing him. 

 

Ot maybe leaving open the possibility that it could leak that they plan to hire someone before the game is actually played and without interviewing them. 

 

Or maybe he knows who it is going to be but isn’t supposed to say, so he’s adding a little disinformation to keep it open so that he doesn’t say too much. 

 

Kuharsky and McGinnis had an extensive conversation about Smith today and Paul keeps acting like it’s a foregone conclusion.

Also, he's obviously not free to disclose the timeline of the hire either, so maybe he's trying to create uncertainty around that as well so that he doesn't break his "oath." Hah. 

 

Who knows.

If it's Arthur Smith I don't get why they wouldn't have announced it already, do they think Titans fans would think it was less of a sham hiring process if they wait 3 weeks from when LaFleur left to announce it.
