The Tennessee Titans have had a disappointing 2012 campaign, and the team is beginning to make changes, seemingly in a last gasp by the coaching staff to save their jobs. The Titans started that process of change late this evening by firing offensive coordinator Chris Palmer, according to the NFL Network. Dowell Loggains, the Titans' quarterbacks coach, will take over as the offensive coordinator. Munchak seems to be looking for answers on the offensive side of the ball, but he did have some polite parting words in regard to Palmer's service with the team. "I have a great deal of respect for Chris Palmer as a coach and that was the reason we brought him here. I appreciate the time and effort he put in here and I want to wish him and his family the best moving forward." Munchak went on to say, "As an offense I didn'€™t feel like we were progressing the way that I had hoped. I believe we needed a change in direction and I hope to see that progress in our remaining games. Dowell [Loggains] has worked here for a number of years under some very successful coordinators and he is ready for this challenge." This move by Mike Munchak is clearly in hopes of sparking his team to a strong finish, and in doing so, saving his job, but changing play callers mid-season rarely works out in favor of the team making the change. It's no surprise that the Titans made this switch coming off a game in which they attempted five field goals, most of which were snapped from well inside the red zone. For the moment, the move will appease owner Bud Adams, but if the season continues to go downhill for the Titans, expect bigger changes soon. [follow]
