The Titans offensive consistently moved the ball against the Jaguars' defense, but their drives generally stalled out, leading to five field goal attempts on the day. From the outside looking in, the move to fire the offensive coordinator appears to have been Mike Munchak's way of saving his own hide, at least for a little while longer. It's hard to imagine the Titans' offense improving over the rest of the season, and the result will likely be Bud Adams cleaning house in early January. Through all the confusion, it seems that Jake Locker's development is being impeded. We've seen solid quarterbacks struggle when there's a constant turnover of offensive coaches. That's exactly what happened to Alex Smith in San Francisco, and the possibility of Locker enduring the same type of fate is becoming more an...

One of the things I've looked at here over the past couple years from time to time is what effect starting field position has had on how effective the Titans have been at scoring or conceding points. I think the first time I did it was when I tried to compare how the offense fared in 2009 under Kerry Collins to how it fared under Vince Young, and I've kept it up since. I...
