11:28 AM ET 02.09 | Gregg Williams, who the Titans hired Thursday to be senior assistant/defense, acknowledged he may have to make some changes in his Xs and Os approach -- in part because his last season with the Saints was a bad one and in part because the offensive-minded game of football continues to change. Williams pointed back to 2007, the last time he and current Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray worked together. Since then, he said, "there's been a huge evolution of style of defense." The defense the Titans play this fall will likely be "a mix of aggressiveness and a mix of bend-but-don't-break," Williams said. "That's always been a part of what I'm about anyway. You have to adapt to the situation with what is needed to be effective during that time of the game. Maybe it is bend-but-don't break. Maybe it is pressure. But we've got to do what is best for the players here."

A good coach adapts his style to the game.

He'll be just fine.

I thought for sure he'd go back to St. Louis and Jeff Fisher since Fisher was the one who hired him right before the league banned him for a year.

Change his style? Right. He'll switch from Bounty to Brawny.

How would you like to be the Titans DC with senior assistance Williams watching every move you make, and one slip and he will have your job.

Wow, 4 quotes in the first 12 by the Creepster with nothing of value to add. Nothing new there. He lives in his own world where he thinks he's entertaining. He's not. He's an adult trapped in the mind of a 14 year old who thinks his own unique schtick brings something to the table. His comments continue to reign supreme for their idiocy. Congratulations for that, Creepster. Your tired brand of commentary is pitiful.
