Glad for Vrabel. Glad Patriots lost.

Watched the game.  Very happy for Vrabel. 
And not at all surprised the Titans were described numerous times as the "tougher" team. 
Congrats to him and the Titans. 

Now, about those Bayou Buckeyes - hope they win it all !

Thanks Mike. Finally a playoff and Super Bowl season without the Patriots and/or Steelers.  Now, if they can eliminate the Ravens, I might actually watch some games for the first time in a long time.

Not an NFL fan anymore but I'd kind of like to see Minnesota win a Super Bowl. They are 0-4 all time. 

I know, they are playing the New Orleans " Buckeyes" as some call them, but it would be cool to see the Vikes actually win one. If the Saints win, oh well, at least the Patriots are out.

Finally, the NFL playoffs are interesting again with the Patriots losing a wild card game. Every year, for the past ten years, it's been a foregone conclusion that NE will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. Thank you, Coach Vrabel for ending their dynasty.

I like it. It sucks for John Simon, but he has a ring.

Vrabel wanted this one bad, and he went out and got it.

Congratulations, Coach.

Watching Belichick squirm and complain to the refs about Vrabel's delay of game + false start to eat up time was awesome.

That was classic...first time I seen it used and it turned out perfect. I have seen it too many times in the past give Brady an extra minute or two and the ball and sign your death warrant.

Besides the Pats losing, that was the best part of the game. Then the Pats jumped offsides! Wonder what Belichick's blood-pressure was like at that point.

Especially when Belichick does the same thing

Vrabel moved directly from Meyer's staff at OSU into the NFL.  It is clear that the NFL is where Vrabel fits as a coach, and as a head coach at that.  

I believe that Vrabel could also be a success at the college level should he choose that route.  

In either case, Vrabel is a head coach type, not an assistant or a coordinator.  Dude is tough, humble, and focused on the task at hand.  I wish him much continued success. 

In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land...

Who TF keeps thinking "revenge tours" are good and will work? Idiots

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

Hopefully it won't come from the 2020 Buckeye football team.

Winovich can’t catch a break... he goes to scUM and Harbaugh is a bust; he goes to the NFL dynasty and they promptly implode. Poor Chase...

Great for Vrabel.  No doubt in my mind the Patriots have been systematic cheaters for many years now.  They get repeatedly caught and this time they couldnt video tape the next opponent.  

But with NFL revenue sharing, it is only in all the Owners best interest to keep covering it up year after year after year.

Go Ravens!!!! I actually have a Troy Smith Ravens Jersey!!!  It really sucked that he won the starting job but got sick. Flacco started and Troy was eventually traded out if Baltimore. This year has been amazing!!!
