[div id="content_id"]Mike Vrabel can't remember a game where he didn't have
butterflies in his stomach before kickoff. As a linebacker over 14
seasons Youth
Christian Djoos Jersey
, he could get rid of them with a crunching tackle.

[p]He won't have that luxury Sunday in Miami making his NFL regular season head
coaching debut with the Tennessee Titans.

[p]"I don't think I'll need any hits from the team," Vrabel said Thursday. "We
all just stay composed and do our jobs. That's the most important thing."

[p]Not much is expected from the Titans this season with the coaching change
despite Tennessee winning its first playoff game in 14 years with back-to-back
9-7 seasons . Vrabel has three Super Bowl rings as a linebacker with New England
, and the coach who frequently picks up a blocking pad and works with the Titans
in practices has made it very clear what he wants.

[p]Three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker said Vrabel doesn't care what
people say outside of the locker room or about Tennessee's winless preseason.
Vrabel's focus has been preparing the Titans for the regular season, and Walker
said the coach has been tough on them.

[p]"He's the type of guy he challenges you every day with questions asking you,
'What's the defensive players' names? What's their numbers?' And I think that's
just to see how we've been preparing," Walker said. "I'm excited to see how he
is when we get down there in Miami and get the game started."

[p]Defensive lineman Jurrell
Casey ,
another defensive lineman, thinks Vrabel's attitude of pushing everyone will
help the Titans achieve more. Casey sees Vrabel creating a mindset that everyone
has to bring more. Even on the practice field, the Titans are expected to jog
between drills with Vrabel usually leading the way.

[p]"That's what I love about him," Casey said. "He's expecting a lot from
everybody. The stars, he's expecting more, and the young guy he's expecting you
to rise up and become stars."

[p]The Titans currently have a five-game winning streak in their first road game
of the
season Youth
Mike Remmers Jersey
, which started in 2013 with Mike Munchak.Ken
Whisenhunt and Mike Mularkey kept that streak alive, wins that didn't deliver
nearly enough to keep either man around very long.

[p]Now it's Vrabel's turn with the Titans gambling that the man long pegged as
the next surefire success as an NFL head coach succeeds in Tennessee. Defensive
coordinator Dean Pees, who came out of a short retirement to come to Tennessee,
says Vrabel has been a professional as a player, assistant and coordinator. He
expects nothing less now Vrabel is a head coach.

[p]Nerves are part of the job even for experienced coaches like himself,
according to Pees who's going into his 46th NFL season.

[p]"If you haven't got a little something churning in your
stomach Youth
Alex McGough Jersey
, I think it's probably something wrong with you,"
Pees said. "You're not very competitive. So it's going to be exciting for him,
and I'm excited to watch him too."

[p]A handful of Titans made clear that whatever happens on the field falls on
their shoulders.

[p]Walker said Vrabel and the assistants he brought in have been great, but they
can only put the Titans in position to execute. Veteran linebacker Wesley
Woodyard said the players can help minimize any growing pains by winning on game
day for a man who played for a great coach in New England's Bill Belichick.

[p]"It seems like he's a little bit more experienced than a first-time head
coach," Woodyard said.

[p]NOTES: Rookie LB Harold Landry (ankle) did not practice Thursday after being
limited Wednesday. S Kendrick Lewis (foot) missed a second straight practice. RT
Jack Conklin (left knee) and LB Rashaan Evans (hamstring) were limited. LB
Derrick Morgan (knee) practiced fully after being limited Wednesday.

[p]Running back Matt Jones‘ football future looked pretty bright halfway through
the 2016 season.

[p]Jones was a third-round pick in the 2015 draft and took over as Washington’s
starter at the start of his second season. He ran for 460 yards and averaged 4.6
yards per carry through the first seven games of the year before a knee injury
knocked him out of the lineup.

[p]That knee injury wound up changing Jones’ outlook dramatically. Rob Kelley
stepped into the backfield and Jones never played for Washington again. He spent
last season with the Colts, but only ran the ball five times and signed with the
Eagles this offseason for what he knows may be his final chance to get back on
track in the NFL.

[p]“It could be Bengals Elite
,” Jones said, via the [em]Allentown Morning Call[/em]. “That
don’t scare me at all. I got my eyes on the prize. I’m here and I’m ready to

[p]Making something of that chance will require Jones to thrive in a crowded
backfield. Jay Ajayi is the No. 1 back in Philly and the Eagles also have Corey
Clement, Darren Sproles, Wendell Smallwood and Donnell Pumphrey on hand. Clement
and Sproles would seem to be in solid position, which doesn’t leave much room on
the roster for Jones unless he recaptures the promise of his early
