PLAYERS: Mike Munchak
TEAMS: Tennessee Titans
According to Arthur Arkush of ProFootballWeekly..com, Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak has a chance to save his job, but his coordinators may not. Our sources indicate that, prior to the Bears’ 51-20 evisceration of the Titans Sunday, coordinators Jerry Gray (defense) and Chris Palmer (offense) were already feeling the heat. But after another humiliating defeat — the Titans’ six losses have come by an average margin of 22.2 points per game — Munchak also needs to prove over the next two months that he has solutions to the Titans’ myriad issues to be safe. We hear Bud Adams was so irate for two reasons: the first is that Tennessee has not been competitive in all but one loss this season, and the nature in which they appeared so unprepared for such a big home game did not sit well with the 89-year-old owner. Adams was further humiliated by the hostile takeover of LP Field by Bears fans, who greatly outnumbered Titans fans by the fourth quarter. One source told PFW it would be ...

Titans' defense always on the brink of disaster

Last week the Tennessee Titans moved defensive coordinator Jerry Gray from the field to upstairs in the booth. The result in a 51-20 home loss to Chicago was that Gray's defense allowed more points -- 37 -- than it had on average all season, as the Bears special teams and defense each kicked in a touchdown. So much for a fresh perspective. After a slight uptick in a period...
