Starting this weekend, the 12 best teams in the NFL will participate in postseason play while the Tennessee Titans and 19 other teams will watch their superiors perform.
It should be no surprise to anyone who watched the Titans this past season to learn the Titans did not fare well playing against those teams. Overall, the Titans did not fare well at all, but they were especially outclassed, and usually embarrassed, by the teams they faced who went on to postseason competition.
When you evaluate a team by how well they fared against the best competition they faced, the Titans came up woefully short in the measurements. These are some stark realities.
The Titans were 0-7 against playoff teams in 2012.
The Titans were outscored by those teams 227 to 87.
The Titans' offense averaged just 12 points per game against those teams.
The Titans' defense allowed an average of 32 points per game to those teams.

According to the Nashville Tennessean, Titans quarterback Jake Locker will undergo left shoulder surgery "in the near future."Fantasy Spin:Locker was given the starting job at the beginning of the season but was never able to find his groove in Tennessee's offense. Maybe the shoulder injury had something to do with that but we still don't have high hopes for him going into 2013.
From a promising 9-7 debut in 2011 to a disappointing 6-10 in 2012, it wasn't exactly the season Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak envisioned for his second season at the helm.

Per Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams has informed head coach Mike Munchak his job is safe and he will be back to coach the team in 2013.
