The Tennessee Titans beat their divisional rival, the Indianapolis Colts, on Sunday. It was a stellar defensive effort with another second half collapse by the offense. While it hasn’t been pretty at all this year, the Titans are sitting at 2-2 in a congested AFC conference.

This win, has somehow sparked discussions and questions about this team’s future with Mike Vrabel as head coach. People aren’t necessarily calling for Vrabel to be fired, but they are saying that a Super Bowl isn’t possible, or that if a Super Bowl doesn’t happen soon, get his ass out of Music City.

I am all for having high expectations for your team, and for the this particular Titans team. Maybe it is a lot of posturing for the public, but this team believes the Super Bowl Window is wide open. So, I am perfectly okay with fans personally setting that as expectations.

It’s the next logical step right? This team has made numerous playoff appearances, and have made it to the AFC Championship Game, so the next thing for this current regime to conquer is getting to a Super Bowl and Winning. However, with setting expectations, you need to keep in mind how hard it is to achieve a Super Bowl appearance, let alone a Super Bowl win. SO patience, nuance, and understanding are key.

I could totally see a scenario where Mike Vrabel has an illustrious and winning career as a Titans head coach for over 15+ years, and not win a Super Bowl. It took Andy Reid 19 years to win his first. Then I could see Vrabel parting ways and going to another team and winning one there. It’s possible, because its the toughest championship in sports to win.

Mike and I dove into this on the latest episode of Football & Other F Words, but it was very spur of the moment, so while we did cover a lot of ground and info, it was done haphazardly. So I wanted to provide evidence why patience for Vrabel is key.
