NASHVILLE Dwayne Haskins Jersey , Tenn. (AP) start as a scout with the New England Patriots, the same team his new head coach Mike Vrabel won three Super Bowl rings as a linebacker. Yes, it seems like the Titans are trying to implement the Patriot Way in Music City. Vrabel said that’s what it looks like – until the Titans win big themselves. ”You have to be able to win championships before people start giving you ways to do things,” Vrabel said Monday. ”So that’ll be our ultimate goal. … Until we can win a championship doing that, there’s not going to be this Titan Way. It will be talked about in the building. But people from outside the building, they won’t believe in us, they won’t have faith in us until you win.” The Titans introduced Vrabel as their new coach Monday. They agreed to terms with Vrabel on Saturday , just five days after firing Mike Mularkey coming off the franchise’s first playoff win in 14 years. This is the first head coaching job for Vrabel, 42. Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk noted Robinson and Vrabel have known each other for years. She also likes Vrabel’s experience and vision for building on back-to-back 9-7 seasons. ”I believe he will do everything he can to bring this town a championship,” Strunk said. Vrabel is coming off his first season as defensive coordinator for the Texans. Vrabel started his NFL career in Pittsburgh under coach Bill Cowher before signing with New England under coach Bill Belichick, and he finished in Kansas City. In 2011, he joined the staff at his alma mater, Ohio State, coaching linebackers and then defensive linemen. He said nobody’s ever really ready to be a head coach for the first time in the NFL, though Vrabel feels as ready as he can be thanks to his doctorate degree in coaching he picked up working with some of the best in the game. ”There will be things that I take from New England, from Pittsburgh D.K. Metcalf Jersey , from Ohio State, from Houston,” Vrabel said. ”I mean there will be things that I take from everywhere. You draw on these experiences just like everybody else would in life … The nice thing is now there’s things that I didn’t like that Billy did, I get to change them. So there’s things I like that he did, I get to use them.” Vrabel went to Houston in 2014 and coached linebackers with the Texans for three seasons before becoming coordinator. The Texans won the AFC South in 2015 and 2016 thanks in part to strong defenses. The unit slipped this season amid injuries to players including J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus. Building on the Titans’ playoff win in Kansas City means putting Marcus Mariota in position to blossom. Whoever Vrabel hires as his offensive coordinator will be Mariota’s third going into his fourth NFL season, and Ohio State co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day reportedly is the early favorite for the job in Tennessee. ”I think Amy’s going to trust me to hire the right guy for Marcus,” Vrabel said. ”Jon’s going to trust me to hire the right guy for Marcus or I wouldn’t have been hired.” And Vrabel made it very clear he knows the potential for Mariota, the 2014 Heisman Trophy winner and No. 2 pick overall in 2015. He recalled Mariota pulling a hamstring Oct. 1 against the Texans. ”A special talent, a special kid, and I can’t wait to work with him and help him through taking that next step in his career,” Vrabel said. This was Robinson’s first head coaching search since being hired in January 2016, two days before the Titans took the interim tag off Mularkey. The Titans went 21-22 with Mularkey taking a team that had the NFL’s worst record at 5-27 combined over 2014 and 2015 to a team that lost in the AFC divisional round to New England. Mularkey was fired less than 48 hours after that loss. The Titans interviewed only three people with Vrabel first to meet with them Thursday. The Titans also interviewed Carolina defensive coordinator Steve Wilks and Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur . — FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Todd Bowles is running the quarterback sneak until Sunday.The New York Jets coach declined Friday to announce whether Sam Darnold or Josh McCown will start at Tennessee against the Titans.Darnold is questionable as he recovers from a strained right foot, while McCown was a full participant at practice after being limited during the previous two practices because of back and right hand ailments.“I’ve kind of decided, but I’ll make it public on Sunday,” Bowles said in a display of gamesmanship.Darnold has missed the past two games http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/aut...y-barton-jersey , but showed progress Wednesday by participating in team drills for the first time since being injured against Miami on Nov. 4. He was limited during all three practice sessions this week.“He looks good,” Bowles said without providing details.Darnold said Wednesday his foot was feeling “a little sore,” but had no pain and was “hopeful” he’d be ready to play against the Titans.The rookie quarterback could very well be active Sunday, but as the No. 2 quarterback behind McCown.“I’ll decide that on Sunday,” Bowles said. “We’ll see where we go.”McCown is ready to play either way. His right hand was cut when he banged it on a helmet during the Jets’ loss last Sunday to New England. Davis Webb has served as his backup the last two games while Darnold has been sidelined.Webb also took snaps in team drills during the week, but it will be either McCown or Darnold under center against the Titans.Depending on whether Darnold returns this weekend or next Sunday at Buffalo, he’ll have four or five games to try to finish his rookie season on a positive note. He still leads the NFL with 14 interceptions despite missing two games, and his 55.0 completion percentage and 68.3 quarterback rating rank at or near the bottom of the league.“I think, obviously, as a rookie quarterback you don’t want to miss time just because every experience, every practice, is a moment to learn,” offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates said Thursday. “So, I think that hurt him a little bit as far as missing those two weeks. But he has been studying in the film room and I think he is naturally just going to keep getting better. He’s absorbing all of the information, both positive and negative. The future is really bright.”The No. 3 overall pick is still very much considered a major building block for the team, and the Jets expect even greater progress next season.“For any rookie Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , in the second year, it slows down mentally because that’s where the biggest learning curve is, regardless of position,” Bowles said. “So, I’m sure next year will be a lot slower because he’s been through the year.”In other injury news:— Safety Marcus Maye was ruled out for the second straight game because of shoulder and thumb injuries. Bowles said “it’s possible” Maye could have surgery on his shoulder and the team will “soon” make a decision on his status for the rest of the season.Cornerback Darryl Roberts is expected to fill Maye’s spot again after starting at safety against New England.“I thought he did decent last week, the first time out,” Bowles said. “He’s a very intelligent football player. He just loves to play the game, regardless of whether it’s corner or safety. He understands where he needs to be and where he has to be.”— Wide receiver Robby Anderson is questionable with an ankle injury that has been bothering him the last few weeks. He was injured against Minnesota in Week 7 and missed two of the next three games, but played last week against New England and had two catches for 22 yards.“We’ll warm him up beforehand (at Tennessee) and see how he feels,” Bowles said.— Running back Trenton Cannon (hamstring) and wide receiver/kick returner Andre Roberts (foot) were full participants at practice after being limited Thursday.NOTES: Bowles said the Jets have “tweaked” the offensive line “a little bit,” but Jonotthan Harrison is still expected to play at center and Spencer Long at left guard. The coach added that backup linemen Dakota Dozier and Brent Qvale could also play, depending on the packages the Jets run. “You may see some changes,” Bowles said, “and if the plays don’t come up, then you may not.” … DE Leonard Williams on the mentality of the team at 3-8 and on a five-game losing streak: “One thing I would say I’m proud of is that everyone continues to fight. I feel like it would be an easy time for people to be depressed and start bickering with each other and being down and having like a gloomy attitude around here. But everyone still comes in with a live passion and everyone seems to be playing for something still. I’ll go to war with these guys any day just because of that.”
