Where is Jon Robinson? He's gone silent

Recommended Posts

Vrabel told the press about it but it absolutely was a collective decision,  Robinson talked about it in the offseason.  The team built a web series with the Tag Line of Good to Great.

 

Regardless, JRob owns this whole football product and should be held accountable if it fails.

I think it's astonishing how so many here give him a pass as this team is built on his decisions from personnel to coaching.  Mariota is the one possible exception but he's the one who made coaching changes based largely on his regression and he also gave him the 5th year option. 

 

Bottom line is that this team is in last place in year 4 after he put up the good to great mantra.

 

 

Because JRob hasn’t completely shit the bed and has brought in talent.

Who didn't think the Lewan extension was a good move at the time?   He didn't screw that one up...Lewan did.   Almost all OL use roids, but are smart enough to not get caught. 

 

Lewan always acted like a clown.  When he starts playing like a clown it will be toxic.

They went from horrid to OK and that was year 1.  It's year 4 and they might not even get to 9 wins again.

The guys on 102.5 were discussing the qb situation in Carolina this morning.. Carolina has decided to go with a precision qb good at distributing the ball to all of the weapons,and to let Newton go.. this strategy allows them to be a more balanced offense, build a better oline, and take advantage of personel better.. could we do this w Tanne, if we had a better oline and different kind of running backs ??

Vrabel went to JRob with the idea in the first place of course JRob is going to back his head coach if he wants to sell a mantra for the season.

 

The web series was just the 2nd season of Igniting the Flame it wasn't specifically developed for the Good to Great Mantra.

So do you not think the talent is there? 
 

I just think that, while he should be held accountable, there are others who are more to blame for things. We will see how the rest of the season plays out, but I don’t see JRob as the problem.

Hard to blame Vrabel for the kicking disaster.  Hard to blame Vrabel for Lewan getting suspended and playing like ass.  I think it's far more likely than not that Vrabel was forced to play Mariota until he completely imploded. 

 

I don't know if either are the answer to be honest but there's no question Robinson's hands are all over the coaches and personnel.

There are certainly things JRob deserves blame for like the kicking situation, his inability to bring in a viable 3rd down receiving RB, i'm sure he even played a part in the elevation of Arthur Smith to OC, but extending Lewan before the 2018 season isn't one of them, there is no way JRob could of foresaw a PED suspension that is just ludicrous.

The real question for debate is whether you want Vrabel's hands all over the offensive game plans going forward in 2020?

Who is arguing yes to this other than Vrabel himself?

 

Vrabel should be on the hot seat. If this year ends poorly JRob should fire him because if next year goes bad they’re both out imo
 

Yeah the problems seem to stem from Vrabel but JRob isn’t without his own warts and he hired Vrabel!

 

He is ultimately responsible for everything as GM

He was on 104 last year routinely during the season the last few years

He's definitely on the run.

This is the in a nutshell viewpoint of typical Titans fan. Not used to greatness so the mere fact he has brought in....some....talent, and has made us better than the last GM is simply,  good enough. 

 

Should still have been/be better to this point considering. 

 

Had a top pick he got to trade down for other picks. 

 

Has had a good amount of cash to play with every year. 

 

And his biggest decision, the coach, is closer to a failure than a success. 

 

All that is just the tip of the iceberg. 

 

Yes, he has brought in talent. But this team has been running in place for the past 3 years. If not now going down hill....

Where did I say Robinson is responsible for Lewan's PED troubles and subsequent scrub play?   I can say that the ROI on the contract has not been good.

 

I'm not going to put Lewan's play on coaching.
