Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams is an old-school owner in the twenty-first century's "new-school" National Football League. He has been the only owner the Titans have ever known, all the way back to 1960 when they were the Houston Oilers. Sufficed to say, during those fifty-two years, Adams has seen a lot of football.The wild card game against the Bills that saw the Oilers squander a 32 point third quarter lead, then lose in overtime to Buffalo's backup quarterback, Frank Reich.Super Bowl XXXIV, in which the re-named Titans, formerly Oilers, lost by a yard thanks to the Rams' Mike Jones.A 59-0 whipping at the hands of the New England Patriots in the 2009 season.Dubious, infamous games, all. According to Adams, however, none of those games were as bad as last week's 51-20 home loss to the Chicago Bears.

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 coordinator moves for better view of 'D'

Tennessee defensive coordinator Jerry Gray has moved to the coaching box to see the field better and see if that helps the Titans tighten up their defense. At this rate, it certainly couldn't hurt. The Titans are back on pace for an NFL record nobody wants in points allowed in a season, and they are back to last in the league giving up 34.2 points per game. They could top the...

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...

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins: Week 10 NFL Pick

Tennessee Titans (3-6) at Miami Dolphins (4-4) Jake Locker returns this week for the Titans. It’s amazing.
