Shane Bowen can draw on Titans' vast coaching experience to turn around defense

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Even though Shane Bowen didn't have the title of defensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans last season, he bore the brunt of the criticism when that unit struggled. After all, he was the playcaller on a defense that finished 28th in yards allowed (398.3 per game). Now that he is officially their coordinator, Bowen wants to get the defense back on track with help from the experienced hands on staff, including head coach Mike Vrabel, senior assistant Jim Schwartz and inside linebackers coach Jim Haslett.

Having so many alpha-type coaches in the same room resembles a scene from Bravo's "Top Chef" show.
