I couldn’t help but chuckle when I saw this tweet earlier today:
The #Titans' coaching staff has 319 combined years of experience entering this season. Dick LeBeau leads the group with 44.— Jason Wolf (@JasonWolf) September 15, 2016
Is that a good thing? It made me think of the press conference where Clay Travis tried to get in a (verbal) fight with Steve Underwood when Underwood talked about how much experience there was between Underwood and Mike Reinfeldt. We all saw how that ended.
This would have been a heck of a staff 20 years ago with Bo Jackson running the football. Just kidding...kind of.
The Titans coaching staff could be an interesting case study. I haven’t done a detailed study of the ages of the coaching staffs around the NFL, but the Titans have to be one of the oldest staffs in the league...as the tweet above shows. Can this staff make the proper adjustments to be successful in today’s NFL?
That is the million dollar question. Mike Mularkey said before the season that he finally got to bring his guys in. This is his ride or die staff. Hopefully there will be more ride than die....
