Titans owner Bud Adams couldn’t take the pain of seeing his team get blown out this week. (Credit: Wade Payne, AP) Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams has never been one to contain his feelings in public. After a 41-17 blowout win over the Buffalo Bills back in 2009, Adams was caught flipping the middle finger numerous times in joyous excitement. Today, with his team on the losing end of a blowout, Adams found himself on the other end of the emotional spectrum. According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Adams turned off the TV while watching his Titans team get blown out by the Green Bay Packers. “I was pretty upset,” Adams said from his home in Houston. “I just didn’t want to watch any more of that mess.” I would be too if my team was getting embarrassed, even if it was on the road against an NFC contender as strong as the Packers. Franchise quarterback Jake Locker was just 13-of-30 for 140 yards with 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions in the game. Chris Johnson had just 28 yards on 11 carries. And the Titans, down by a score of only 20-0 at halftime, did nothing more out of the half and gave up another 35 consecutive points before scoring a meaningless touchdown with 1:39 to go. The Titans have taken a significant step back in coach Mike Munchak’s second year as head coach. His record as head coach now stands at 14-17, including a 5-10 record in 2012 that features just two wins in their last eight games. While Munchak isn’t one of the first names to be uttered when the topic is head coaches on the hot seat, Adams said that Munchak’s job could still be on the line this offseason. “I like Mike, I really do. But liking him and getting the job done are two different things,” Adams said. “If he is not getting the job done, that is what I have to find out. Right now, we are not looking very good. Something is wrong and I want to find out what the problem is and what needs to be done to fix it.” While the issue could come from the head coaching position, the team hasn’t been performing like an AFC contender. Jake Locker hasn’t made many improvements in his first full year as a starting quarterback. In an age when so many young quarterbacks are making huge waves in the NFL, the Titans should be concerned by Locker’s lack of production. The defense has been lackluster this season as well, ranking 18th against the pass and 25th against the run. Hopefully Adams won’t have to give up on the game again next week, when the Titans host the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars in their regular season finale.

  • time to clean house
  • The funniest part of this whole thing is "Franchise quarterback Jake Locker"... How can this guy be called that when he has no productivity? He's either hurt or getting cold on the sidelines because he can't keep his offence on the field. I feel sorry for the defense. Give Matt Hasselbeck the rock. Yeah he's older, but he knows how to lead a team and obviously Jake doesn't. You never see him on the sideline pep-talking the guys...
  • here's an idea Bud,pick up a good QB that has not only ability but attitude you need,affordable.that being Tebow.spend the rest of your money and draft picks on good def.backs.lose def.coodinator,give munchek another year.
