Code Blue? Code Red? You want the truth? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH.

The hiring of Greg Williams is almost imminent. His return to Tennessee will raise a lot of questions. My first question is why it took someone so long besides me to equate this situation and the 1992 box office smash A Few Good Men? I mean think about it? The similarities are astounding. The bounty is the code red, okay, maybe thats the only similarity. Damn.

The Titans franchise has almost willingly went out of their own way to do nothing this offseason that makes much sense. A lot of off the wall hirings, firings, promotions, and demotions. Let me get you up to speed: Fired OC Chris Palmer, promoted Dowell Loggains. Promoted Dave Ragone (GO CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) from WR's to QB's coach, hired Shawn Jefferson from Detroit to coach WR's (Good luck with Kenny). Hired George "Rickshaw" Henshaw to coach TE's. You know, that guy that taught Frank Wychek how to throw a lateral pass? Promoted Nate "Motorola" Kaczor from assistant offensive line coach to special teams coach. Promoted Chet Parlavecchio (you know, Mike's buddy from Penn St. that coached Raheem Morriss in high school? Yeah, that guy.) from special teams assistant to linebackers coach. Hired Sylvester Croom as RB's coach, the guy responsible for 1997 Barry Sanders. Frank Bush (linebackers), Alan Lowry (special teams), Jim Skipper (running backs) and John Zernhelt (tight ends), were all told to turn in their play books.

As for future assistant head coach, Greg "kill the head and the body will die" Williams, I'm on board. Also shocked. I assumed the main brass was delighted with the defense (although nobody else was) but this is a step in the direction we need to take it in order to improve it. I personally don't care that he put up money for the Saints players in the Bounty Gate scandal. I'd put up money if our defense could just get sacks. I'll personally buy Michael Griffin's pitt bulls dog food for a year if he doesn't get trucked over like that incoherent spanish maid in The Devils Rejects. I digress, I'm sure the team will be listening to a lot of Sugarland (see my last post).

Aggressive 4-3 blitzing defenses have always been popular in Nashville. At least it was very popular from 1997 to 2000. Why? Because as defensive coordinator, Greg Williams defense led the league in total defense and only gave up 191 points, the third fewest in the NFL since the league adopted the 16 game schedule in 1978. To that I say...Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy (Get Ready)... My name is GRRREEEEEGGGGG!

I think what Williams does best is design and call a defense... you know, coordinate... but it seems they don't want to take those duties from Gray, yet. Munch may just be adding a midseason safety valve in case things continue like they did this past year (remember that it was speculated that the reason Palmer was let go and not Gray was because Loggains was believed to be ready to take over the duties of OC while there was no one on staff that could take over DC duties). If this does come to fruition (love that word), I think we should definitely see an improvement in our defense that brings back a nasty attitude that we all dearly miss on Sunday afternoons.

Kill the head, and the body will die, I trust.
