Things continue to change in subtle (and not so subtle) ways, but the Titans seem to be heading in the right direction. Interim Coach Mularkey is putting his stamp on the team, and the latest changes seem to be purging some of the Whisenhunt agenda.
The first move this week that scraped off some of the stench of Whisenhunt, was to waive "Clipboard Jesus" himself, Charlie Whitehurst. He was cut to make room for RB David Cobb returning from sort-term IR. Although we are completely unsure what the addition of Cobb will mean for this running game, if he is anything close what we saw in the pre-season then he is our best option at running back. The release of Whitehurst, some say, is not permanent, but the writing is on the wall that he will not be a part of the future here in Tennessee.
The second move this week was to remove Taylor Lewan as captain and replace him with Dexter McCluster. Mularkey stated that Lewan had not spent an entire season on the field yet, and that McCluster was deserving of the move. He also stated that Lewan completely understood and was very professional about the change. I think Lewan is strong enough to handle the change, but I think it is important he work to earn the position the next time.
I'm not sure what future moves are in store in the Mularkey regime, but if I had to guess it would be distancing this team further away from any stamp that Whisenhunt left behind.
