Found November 28, 2012 on This Given Sunday:
The firing of Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer came at an odd time, and it's indicative of underlying problems within the organization. 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.

Field position and the Titans offense in 2012

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.
