Tennessee Titans didn't win a game after firing Jon Robinson as GM. What the numbers say

The Tennessee Titans were 7-5 and still comfortably ahead in the AFC South when the franchise fired general manager Jon Robinson on Dec. 6.

Owner Amy Adams Strunk cited a belief that "there is more to be done and higher aspirations to be met" in a release announcing Robinson's exit.

But given the Titans' comfortable lead in the South ahead of Indianapolis and Jacksonville, plus games against the Jaguars and Texans left on the schedule, a division title appeared to still be more than reasonable.

The Titans lost to the Jaguars five days later. Then came another loss to the Chargers.

Five weeks later, the Titans finished the season at 7-10 and were shut out of the playoffs for the first time since 2018, punctuated by Saturday's 20-16 loss at the Jaguars.

"We got on a (expletive) streak, and we couldn't get off it," Titans coach Mike Vrabel said after Saturday's loss. "We couldn't make the plays when we needed to. We couldn't be consistent enough when we needed to, and that showed up again (against Jacksonville on Saturday)."

The seven-game losing skid began before Robinson's firing, with losses to the Bengals and Eagles. But the season ended with both Robinson and the Titans watching the playoffs on TV.

And while three of those five losses post-Robinson were one-score games, the numbers in totality were ugly.
