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.”

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Titans owner Bud Adams says he got so disgusted with his team's blowout loss to the Packers that he turned his television off and gave up.
At least the Tennessee Titans and coach Mike Munchak have one more game this season.
They sure need something to help erase their inept performance in Green Bay, and give owner Bud Adams reason to think Munchak really can turn around this franchise.
The Titans have lost six of eight, with the 55-7 loss to the Packers a new low in a painful season. Once again, they're last in...
According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, Titans owner Bud Adams was so upset about how poorly his team played in today’s blow out loss to the Packers, that he turned his television off before the game was over.

Adams was asked how safe head coach Mike Munchak’s job is...
The Tennessee Titans were hammered by the Green Bay Packers 55-7 on Sunday. There isn’t much to say after a game like that, and about the only thing a player can do is apologize. That’s exactly what Pro Bowl offensive lineman Michael Roos did.
Disgusted. Embarrassed. Pissed. Not enough adjectives to describe how crappy that was. Apologies to Titans fans

Green Bay Packers kickoff return specialst Randall Cobb may have had the heads up play of the day against the Tennessee Titans. Titan’s kicker Rob Bironas kicked a ball of that landed four yards short of the goaline and a yard from the sideline. Cobb placed one foot out of bounds then touched the ball, [...]
Well, that was fun. By the time the Titans got a first down, they were down 14-0, if only because Randall Cobb failed to bring in two catchable passes. At halftime, it was 20-0. After the Packers had the ball five times on the second half, it was 55-0. Only a Jake Locker pass to Kenny Britt in the final two minutes of the game avoided the shutout.
There's not a lot to say...

No matter what happens in Sunday's season finale at LP Field, the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars will finish with the worst records in the AFC South.
