It all depends on the analysis of how to fix the team.

Coughlin only has one year left on his deal, does he want a major shake up?

If the front office believe that our system fundamentally works and get us a good oline and ground game, I think Sullivan is fine.

I am not sure it is the best solution, but it does fit with this team's philosophy of patience and stability.

Any word on Fewell? Is he staying or is he gone? It's been awfully quiet on the Giant front lately.

Nothing at all regarding the D. I bet he's back.

In surprising news we're actually bringing in a second candidate for OC. Giants to interview Dowell Loggains for OC. Can't say I know much about him though.

I wish you had to interview a minority for coordinator as well. Just so we are forced to hear a different voice and perhaps it will get something going.

It actually sounds like this Loggains fellow believes in a very simplified pass offense so QB and WR are on the same page. Very pass happy last year though.

That's fine. I don't mind being pass happy. As long as it's a simplified offense.

Power dinosaur formations need to go. We need more Pistol and combo plays.

I know we haven't heard his name linked but no shot for Norv? I'd really like to see what he could do with what we have after seeing what he got out of Cleveland's QB situation this past season.

Loggains will look to get rid of confusion that was created in Chris Palmer's offense where the quarterback and receiver were regularly crossed up and not on the same page. Palmer's option routes frequently included no flexibility for the players. Loggains is expected to allow receivers more freedom to play off coverages to take advantage of space and work in it

Dowell Loggains is interviewing for us.

Dowell Loggains was the Titans offensive coordinator last season.

Any thoughts on their system?

Here is an article from may on the Titans new offensive system.

It is interesting with Loggains that they are looking at an OC that simplies the passing game (most notably Chris Palmers)

Quote:

Tennessee Titans Promise to Have New Look Offense in 2013
By
Michael Amburgey
(Contributor) on May 19, 2013

With my recent opinion article on Jake Locker's growth and development being key to the Titans' success in 2013, I'm now taking this opportunity to review what the offensive schemes might look like for Locker and company going forward into this season.

The changes around Baptist Sports Park have been obvious since last year. Gone is the status-quo feeling of the Titans' offseason and free-agency routine. The Titans previously known for getting a few offensive or defensive role players that could contribute on special teams in the latter weeks of free agency are history.

The Titans' front office stepped up early this year in improving their offensive line to assist in Jake Locker's protection and Chris Johnson's running game. In a video interview on TitansOnline.com, Johnson even spoke of the high-impact moves. They took it a step further with going offense in the majority of their draft picks, including in Rounds 1 and 2 with picking up G Justin Warmack and WR Justin Hunter, respectively.

Early in the offseason, talk came out from offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains about opening up the offense for Locker with more read-option looks. This pistol-style offense could prove very beneficial for a mobile and athletic quarterback like Jake Locker, especially when disguising the option plays with more screens to Chris Johnson.

Can the tandem of Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene make a similar impact like CJ and LenDale White did?
They will make a bigger impact The impact will be near-equal The tandem will not perform as expected Submit Vote vote to see results

Getting CJ2K and new Titans RB Shonn Greene touches will be a sticking point for Loggains as he looks to get Locker settled in early with an established running game. Controlling the clock on the offensive side of the ball should also pay dividends for defensive scheming, as the Titans often played from behind both a worn-down defense, and in scoring output against their opponents.

In regards to the running game, the Titans are almost assuredly going back to a two-back tandem between Johnson and Greene, much like the days where Johnson and former Titans RB LenDale White had become known as "Smash and Dash" in the 2008-2009 season. This double-threat in the backfield should help give Locker more options both in pass-blocking by Greene and screen plays to Johnson.

With Loggains taking a similar offensive style to that of former OC Mike Heimerdinger, they will look to build confidence in Locker's play early on, and the running game will be substantial in achieving that goal. Loggains has publicly stated that he plans to simplify the play-calling language, a move that should help expedite things in the huddle for Locker, while making the system a quick transition for rookies as well.

The coaching staff will also look to quickly integrate new playmakers on offense such as TE Delanie Walker, who was picked up in free agency from San Francisco, and Justin Hunter from the rookie draft class. Hunter will look to extend the field with his big play ability and speed, most likely playing opposite Kenny Britt.

Kenny Britt, finally a full season removed from his ACL injury more than a season ago, should be full speed and wanting to make a huge impact in his contract year. Walker, on the other hand, is regarded as a playmaking tight end who is considered the best blocking TE in the NFL, though didn't receive high accolades playing behind star TE Vernon Davis in San Fran.

Last but certainly not least, look for the Titans to really make a concerted effort to control the line of scrimmage and win the battles in the trenches in both the running and passing games. With the addition of Chance Warmack in the draft, Andy Levitre in free agency and fourth-round steal in C Brian Schwenke, the Titans promise to bring some nastiness back to an offensive line that was decimated with injuries in 2012.

While nothing is guaranteed in the NFL, it looks like the Titans offense is taking strides to be far better than the product they put on the field in 2012. The Titans went from barely missing the playoffs in Munchak's first year in 2011 to underachieving after having high expectations in 2012. With the Titans not on any national media radars this year, they can take on the underdog role as they have in the past and may very well have a chance to surprise opponents and fans this season.


Playing behind what could be considered one of the best offensive lines in football, a premier backfield and a multitude of hot-bed talent in their wide receiving corp, the time is now for the Titans and their offense to finally meet and exceed the expectations of their fanbase.

Another article on the Titans

It seems that Loggains' offensive philosophy has been influenced most by three people: Norm Chow, Mike Heimerdinger and Sean Payton.

Quote:

Titans shred entire playbook

David Climer, USA TODAY Sports 10:51 a.m. EDT June 7, 2013

Asked what's different about the Titans' offense this season, wide receiver Kenny Britt said: Everything. New plays. New formations. We're starting from scratch."

And this from second-year wideout Kendall Wright: "It's just a new playbook. There's nothing left over from last year."

Indeed, the 2012 offensive playbook went into the nearest shredder, with Dowell Loggains granted the freedom to develop and install his own offensive system.

It's a gamble.

With his job as head coach likely on the line, Mike Munchak sought out old friend Gregg Williams to revitalize the Titans' defense. On the other side of the ball, he went with the 32-year-old Loggains, a first-time offensive coordinator.

Interestingly, 13 NFL teams have new offensive coordinators this season. While San Diego (Ken Whisenhunt), Cleveland (Norv Turner) and the New York Jets (Marty Mornhinweg) went with proven commodities, Munchak went with his gut.

Early returns are encouraging. Granted, it's noncontact work ("football in shorts," as Loggains calls it), but the players seem to embrace the new system.

Loggains' scheme is a little bit of this, a little bit of that. Think of it as an offensive smorgasbord that begins with a solid running game but quickly branches out to a passing scheme that takes its share of deep shots but settles for shorter throws when necessary.

"The team has really embraced and responded to the changes our organization has made as far as the offense and the players we've brought in," Loggains said.

Soon after getting the job, Loggains joked that his offense would be structured to conform to the philosophies of his bosses, general manager Ruston Webster and Munchak, both of whom have spoken about the need to control the ball in order to take pressure off a short-handed defense.

"The general manager and head coach believe that when you throw the ball only three things can happen, and two of them are bad," Loggains said.

Don't buy it. While it is no secret the Titans want to build the offense around their highest-paid asset, running back Chris Johnson, we live in an era where the forward pass rules. The Titans didn't draft Justin Hunter in the second round and acquire Delanie Walker in free agency just so they could serve as downfield blockers for Johnson.

"In today's NFL, not throwing the ball a lot is still throwing it around 30 times a game," Loggains said. "We are going to be a run, play-action team first, but we're still going to drop back and throw the football."

With all due respect to Loggains' predecessor, Chris Palmer, it was difficult to get a read on exactly what the Titans were trying to do offensively the last couple of seasons. Often, they seemed to react to the defensive scheme instead of forcing the action.

Palmer was fired with five games remaining last season, with Loggains placed in charge of running the offense. While he gained experience in calling plays, Loggains was still using Palmer's offensive schemes. Now he's calling the plays he designed.

Loggains' offensive philosophy has been influenced most by three people: Norm Chow, Mike Heimerdinger and Sean Payton. Loggains was on the Titans coaching staff when Chow was offensive coordinator in 2006-07 and Heimerdinger in 2008-10. Loggains broke into the NFL as a scouting assistant for Dallas in 2005 when Payton was running the Cowboys' offense.

It's an interesting philosophical mix. Chow used shifts and motions to get favorable one-on-one matchups. Heimerdinger believed in a solid running game and combination pass routes. Payton is a wild card, drawing up creative formations, calling plays at a quick-hit tempo and making liberal use of the pass.

"Dowell has had the whole offseason to get the playbook right, and we've got a lot of good weapons," Johnson said.

Considering what happened last season, a new playbook is the right way to go.

It is interesting that Dowell Loggains is going along with Mike Munchak's HC interview with the Lions.

Munchak wouldn't fire Loggains which is one of the reasons Munchak himself was fired.

Awesome. So the Giants are following the douche vs turd sandwich approach to finding our next OC.

I actually have a feeling that we didn't ask Gilbride to step down and he really did do it on his own. If he still wanted to cach I'd bet he'd be OC right now.
