Ever heard the phrase, “putting lipstick on a pig”? That’s exactly what Kevin Byard did on Wednesday when he talked up the promotion of Shane Bowen to defensive coordinator. The fact that the Titans even had to put up an article where one of the defensive players is expressing confidence in the hire is pretty sad.
