Mike Vrabel has learned from the master. As the Titans tried to take as much time as possible off the clock, the Tennessee coach used an NFL rulebook loophole that he likely learned from Bill Belichick, who employed the same strategy earlier in the season.
Belichick wasn't happy to be the victim this time around, but earlier this season in a Monday Night Football bout against the New York Jets, he attempted the very same thing by purposely taking a delay of game followed by an offsides to wind down the clock. In fact, he seemed pretty pleased about it.
Either way, this speaks volumed as to how much Vrabel has grown as a coach in recent years, as well as his humility, as he's not ashamed to steal from one of the greatest minds in NFL history.
