What Titans’ Mike Vrabel said at end-of-year press conference

With the Tennessee Titans’ season ending in Week 18 thanks to a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, head coach Mike Vrabel did his customary end-of-year press conference, touching on a number of topics.

The Titans are heading into an offseason that has a lot of uncertainties. In fact, the only certain thing is that there will be massive changes.

Tennessee first has to make decisions on its coaching staff and find a new general manager. The latter process has already begun, with the Titans requesting to interview four candidates thus far.

While he didn’t go into specifics, Vrabel did say there would be changes this offseason. Fans are hoping one of the first ones is at offensive coordinator, where Todd Downing is expected to get fired.

But what’s expected and what will actually happen are two different things. Vrabel is fiercely loyal to his guys, and Downing is one of those guys, so while it’s expected he’ll be fired, there is no guarantee.

Vrabel went over a number of things in his end-of-year presser, including the team’s need to get faster, figure things out on the injury front, find guys who can protect the quarterback and what the future might hold for those quarterbacks. Check it all out below.
