NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Titans are working with a brand new attitude, talking of being aggressive and attacking.
Yes, Gregg Williams is starting to put his stamp on Tennessee.
The coach who sat out a year as penalty for his role in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal has been working for Titans coach Mike Munchak since February. The results are starting to show both on and off the field during the team's offseason program for a franchise trying to get back to the playoffs.
Munchak said Monday he knew all that attitude and swagger would come with bringing in Williams. Munchak says he wanted Williams to be himself and never thought of trying to mute the defensive coach or limit what he could say.
But Williams isn't ready to hype his own swagger. He just wants to overhaul a defense that gave up a franchise record 471 points last year. Said Williams,"I don't know about the new attitude because this is the attitude that has been wherever I have been. That's fun to see them excited about playing and excited about competing. I have been really pleased. We've been, not I, but we've been really pleased with just the whole camaraderie with the team right now. They're having fun playing football."
