Tennessee Titans fans are losing their minds on Mike Vrabel for questionable calls in the heartbreaking loss to the Ravens.
Despite being the higher seed and being the favorites to come out on top in the Wild Card Round, the Tennessee Titans just saw their season come to a close with a heartbreaking 20-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in Nashville.
While Ryan Tannehill’s late interception was backbreaking and all but sealed the Baltimore win thanks to Marcus Peters, Titans fans were disgusted long before, with their anger directed at head coach Mike Vrabel.
Yes, we’re talking about the absurd call in the fourth quarter when Vrabel decided to punt the ball on 4th and 2 from Baltimore’s 40-yard line. Why did he do that?
Titans fans are blasting Mike Vrabel for punting late from the Raven’s 40
Indeed, Tennessee was down 17-13 with 10:06 left in the game at the time. At the Baltimore 40-yard line, Vrabel punted the ball on 4th and 2, much to the dismay of countless folks out there. If you’re looking up Vrabel’s name on Twitter, you’ll find people hating on him left and right. It’s a storm out there.
Mike Vrabel is willing to cut his penis off to win a Super Bowl but won't go on 4th and 2 at the Ravens 40.

That punt is going to haunt Mike Vrabel forever.

What a brilliant decision by Mike Vrabel to punt from Ravens 40-yard-line on 4th & 2. Sure it cost him the game, but the most important thing is he flipped the field & won the field position battle. That's better than a playoff win & General Vrabel is the real winner here.

Mike Vrabel is gonna get demolished in the media/by fans for that punt decision and he'll deserve all the criticism. I can't think of anything recent in the NFL that comes close to how disastrous and cowardly that was. 4th and 2 at the Baltimore 40, Derrick Henry on your roster.

Just an absolute horrendous coaching job by Mike Vrabel. The worst punt I’ve ever seen. Did not try 1 double move on peters, who loves to jump routes, w Davis. Pulled Davis, for whoever that guy was that fell down. Why not pass the ball to Henry on the edges? #BALvsTEN #titans

When you punt on 4th and 2 from your opponents 40 in the 4th Q when you're down by one score you get what you deserve Mike Vrabel

The Titans lost this game because Mike Vrabel is a coward. There's no other way to describe punting on 4th and 2 from the plus-40 when you're down by 4. It's cowardly.

Does Vrabel have money on the Ravens?

If you look up “Vrabel” and “coward” on Twitter, you’ll also see loads of posts as well. Keep in mind too that the Titans have Derrick Henry. Why not feed your beast or take a shot with a play-action call?
Obviously, we can all clown on Vrabel now that the game is over and Tennessee will watch the rest of postseason from home.
At the time of the punt, however, everyone and their mother was screaming at Vrabel to re-think his decision. It’s now too late and he’ll be the butt of jokes throughout the offseason. Sorry, Titans fans, but your head coach really let you down today.
