The Tennessee Titans were destroyed 55-7 by the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, and the team’s latest brutal loss may cost head coach Mike Munchak his job. Titans owner Bud Adams said on Sunday he was so disgusted by the game that he turned off the TV before the game ended. He also sounded like a man prepared to fire Munchak. “I like Mike, I really do,” Adams told The Tennesseean Sunday. “But liking him and getting the job done are two different things,” Adams said. “If he is not getting the job done, that is what I have to find out. Right now, we are not looking very good. Something is wrong and I want to find out what the problem is and what needs to be done to fix it.” The Titans are rebuilding with second-year player Jake Locker at quarterback. Locker was 13-for-30 for 140 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Adams says the offensive line was problematic. “[Locker] didn’t have a chance,” Adams said. “They were on him like a dog on a cat. He was kind of fighting for his life.” Adams told The Tennesseean he plans to talk with Munchak and the front office after the season before making any decisions. He wants to find out what Munchak thinks is wrong with the team. He also says he hears complaints from fans and empathizes with them. “I’ll be 90 years old on my next birthday on January 3. I am in good health, but it is a chore to fly up to Nashville and when I get up there I don’t like to see them play poorly. The fans are not happy with me. I need to figure out what I need to do to make things work and see if changes need to be made.” Munchak heard about Adams’ comments, and he hopes the owner will show patience with the team. “You can’t lose perspective of the fact that sometimes it takes a little longer to build something than one season or a season-and-a-half,” Munchak said Monday, per The Tennessean. “We’ve had one offseason here since I have been head coach, so we haven’t had a lot of time with the players. We have a short period of time to fix it, but I feel very confident that we will. “But I feel good about how we are going to get there, and it will be up to Mr. Adams to see if he agrees with me.” You may recall that Adams put the entire organization on notice last month following the team’s embarrassing 51-20 home loss to the Bears. Between that defeat and this one, I think we know which direction Adams is leaning. Get ready to return to assistant coach life, Munch.
