The Tennessee Titans have officially moved on from their (now former) GM Jon Robinson. It was one of the most surprising mid-season firings we've seen in some time, too, as the Titans hold a three-game lead in the AFC South, almost surely headed for the postseason.

Why make the move? Well, coincidentally (or not), the firing came fresh off the heels of former Titan/current Eagle AJ Brown's first game against his former team. Brown posted 8/119/2 on 10 targets to help lead Philly to their 11th win of the year and made the Titans look like an absolute fool for trading him away.

Should he have been fired? Well...

- The man did have the wherewithal to draft A.J. Brown in the first place, right? - The Titans haven't had a losing record since he was hired as the team's GM in 2016. - The Titans have gone to the playoffs in four of six complete seasons with Robinson as GM (including two trips to the Divisional Round, one trip to the AFC Championship) - Then again, Robinson did trade Brown away to avoid paying him the requested $22 million annual salary, which seems really quite reasonable at this point for a top-tier receiver.
