Arthur Smith promoted to OC

Recommended Posts

Mariota and Smith had more years in the Whiz/Mularkey system than in this new Shanahan tree one, right? 

 

Is this going to be a weird Frankenstein's monster of an offense? lol

I wasn’t that huge of a believer in LaFleur, there were times he just seemed incapable or too stubborn to adapt, though he got better at the end of year. Smith will be fine, but Mariota has to stay on the field and produce. Otherwise Smith and Co will have a new QB in 2020.

I mean, the terminology and the plays are actually still in the Titans possession.  Lafleur didn't take all the playbooks and verbiage with him when he left...

Doubtful. Neither is tied to Mariota. 

While that may be true in theory, it's not so much in practice.

 

There's an old adage in the coaching fraternity regarding coaches that get new jobs and the rosters they inherit:

"They are "your players" the minute you accept the job."

Arthur is a Tarheel so I’m slightly biased 🙂

 

Definitely interested to see what his offense comprises of though since he’s been around multiple (& very different) systems.

I think there’s a decent chance Luke Steckel gets promoted to TE coach. He’s deserving of a promotion and coached TEs one year under Smith as his assisant. 

 

Otherwise, Todd Downing’s contract is expiring in Minnesota, so he’s a good option. Pariani (Kubiak’s friend) is replacing him. 

 

Geep Chryst is another great option. 

 

Or how about move Keith Carter to TE coach (he played TE and has coached TEs) and hire DeGuglielmo as OL coach hah! 

Yeah...good call, but, sadly, it makes just too much sense...

Also, this article is worth a re-post now that he's the guy: 

 

 

Nice to see that the article gives props to the B.J. Jarnagin who first suggested he would be a good candidate. As, hopefully, it will stop PK from trying to take credit for it...lol!

Have to think Smith is going to lean on the running game/TE as a foundation of his offense, going to be important for JRob to make sure we have a good blocking TE on the roster.

I say he'll be pretty loyal to his TE group to be honest. I say he likes the whole group.

The best part is that there is like zero commentary on it from pundits and media people outside of team coverage.

Why would there be?  I don't remember much fanfare when Mcvay was promoted to OC from TE's coach...

You think that if Mariota sucks next year AAS will fire JRob and Vrabel?

Then promote Smith to head coach in order to facilitate a sale of the franchise to his dad Fred...

If Mariota fails we'll likely be getting a new OC and new QB.

Count on it by this hire.  This hire is telling Marcus to go to hell.
