The Tennessee Titans were an absolute mess on Sunday afternoon at home against the Chicago Bears. Thanks to a plethora of turnovers and an opportunistic Bears team, the Titans saw themselves trailing 28-2 -- after the first quarter. The Titans ended up falling to the Bears 51-20, falling to 3-6 and third place in the AFC South in the process.  The embarrassing beatdown is percolating throughout the organization, all the way up to the owner's box, where Tennessee owner Bud Adams has come down hard on his team. "In my 50 years of owning an NFL franchise," he told The Tennesseean, "I'm at a loss to recall a regular-season home game that was such a disappointment for myself and fans of the Titans. We were grossly outcoached and outplayed from start to finish today. "At this time, all aspects of the organization will be closely evaluated, including front office, coaches and players, over the next seven games. If performance and competitiveness does not improve, I will look at all alternatives to get back to having the Titans become a playoff and championship football team." The five-turnover performance is the latest in what's becoming a long line of disappointments for the Titans, a team that has struggled to maintain any sort of relevance in the past few years. In fact, Sunday's loss had at least one Titans player comparing this stomping to the one suffered at the hands of the Patriots on a snowy Sunday afternoon in October 2009. That turned into a 59-0 loss for Tennessee. "This was worse," defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks said, according to The Tennessean. "It's the most embarrassing game I've ever been a part of. Everything was bad. They had more fans in the stadium -- it sounded like we were playing an away game. There's nothing good you can about it. It's the worst experience I've ever had." Fans (understandably) left early, heading for the exits as the beating got worse. Bears fans, who travel well to begin with, stuck around to the end making LP Field look and sound more like Soldier Field by game's end.
