Following Sunday’s 51-20 loss to the Chicago Bears, Tennessee Titans Owner Bud Adams said he’s never been more humiliated in his life. It was a start-to-finish beatdown of his team, and nothing about the loss looked positive for the struggling franchise.
He let everyone know on Sunday night that all of their jobs were on the line as he evaluated his team.
“In my 50 years of owning an NFL franchise, I am at a loss to recall a regular-season home game that was such a disappointment for myself and fans of the Titans,” Adams told Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean via NFL.com. “We were grossly outcoached and outplayed from start to finish today.

“At this time, all aspects of the organization will be closely evaluated, including front office, coaches and players over the next seven games. If performance and competitiveness does not improve, I will look at all alternatives to get back to having the Titans become a playoff and championship football team.”
Things haven’t gone well for the team since Jeff Fisher and Bud Adams decided to go their seperate ways after Fisher was the longest tenured head coach in the NFL at the time. Fisher spent 16 years with the team and led them to the playoffs multiple times in his run.
Mike Munchak shouldn’t feel too comfortable in his own shoes at this point as things haven’t gone well for the Hall of Famer. The running game has struggled since signing RB Chris Johnson to a Mega-Millions deal and they have yet to determine if Jake Locker can be the QB of the future – and they might not have the chance. If the Titans don’t turn things around in the second half of the season, I have a feeling that Adams will clean house, from General Manager Ruston Webster to the guys that deliver Gatorade to players on gameday.
Adams will turn 90 years old in January, and he unfortunately won’t be around forever. He’d like to see his team compete for a title before he moves on from them, and I don’t blame him. Hopefully they right the ship and pull it together, if not, they know their jobs are on the line. Let’s see if they play for them.

The Tennessee Titans now have plenty of motivation to play better. Owner Bud Adams has made sure of that.
The owner plans to evaluate everyone from the front office to the coaches to the players over the final seven games after the Titans lost 51-20 to Chicago, the most points allowed since a 59-0 loss to New England in 2009.

Titans running back Chris Johnson went wild Sunday against the Chicago. He finished the day with 141 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries.Fantasy Spin:Johnson did lose a couple of fumbles but getting to 141 yards against the Bears' stout run defense is still an impressive feat, even if 80 of said yards came on one play in the fourth quarter.
Finally, a week where we didn’t lose to a hot chick. Not to say we’re happy about our 2-3 record, but at least week eight ended in a tie. This week we’re going up against Tennessee Titans cheerleader Jena in what promises to be another barn-burner. The first time we went against a Titans cheerleader, Molly made us look silly after she finished the week 4-1. Let’s hope we...
The Tennessee Titans were an absolute mess on Sunday afternoon at home against the Chicago Bears. Thanks to a plethora of turnovers and an opportunistic Bears team, the Titans saw themselves trailing 28-2 -- after the first quarter.
The Titans ended up falling to the Bears 51-20, falling to 3-6 and third place in the AFC South in the process.
Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams seemed to have taken Sunday’s 51-20 home loss to the Chicago Bears pretty hard. So hard in fact, that he told reporters following the game that the entire organization will be “closely evaluated” over the remainder of the season.

It started ugly, with a fumble by Kenny Britt on the first play. It got a little bit better, as the Bears became the first team not to score against the Titans on their first and second possessions. Then, the Titans had the ball again. Brett Kern had his punt blocked and returned for a score. The Titans got a safety the next possession, but were forced to punt, a punt Devin Hester...

Lovie Smith’s message to the team this week was to “have a fast start”. They clearly got the memo.
In 2000, the Tennessee Titans pulled off the famous “Music City Miracle”. In 2012, the Bears stormed into Nashville and put on a performance that from this day forth should be known as the “Music City Massacre” (I’m trademarking this).
If they hadn’t done so already...

Rams coach Jeff Fisher was grasping for answers after the Patriots torched his Rams 45-7 at Wembley Stadium in London last Sunday.
One area he gave some attention to was what he said were illegal hits on his quarterback, Sam Bradford.
But the league has ruled that those hits were not out of line, and the Patriots will not be fined, Mike Florio of profootballtalk...
