Titan coach Justin Holbrook would not rule out using David Fifita in the center in the future, despite his defensive shock against the Cowboys.
The Cowboys recorded three attempts on the right side of the Titans, with Fifita being used several times, but Holbrook will continue the experiments in an effort to find an elusive winning formula in 2022.
“Both,” Holbrook replied when asked if the Fifity replacement was to cover injuries or test a new strategy.

“We had to do it because of an injury, but I also wanted to try it outside, which is hard.”
“We have to try. We don’t win games, so we tried.
“It was a limited preparation, so of course it was a bit mixed.”
Holbrook admitted that Fifita’s experiment was not successful, but was optimistic that he would continue to improve the team to find successful combinations.
“We have to think about it,” Holbrook said.
“We don’t win matches, so we have to come up with what we think is right.”
“We thought it was right tonight, but it obviously wasn’t.”
“Not only this step, we were abducted by a much better team.
