The Titans' latest performance has caught the attention of owner Bud Adams. And not for good reason. At all. Following the team's embarrassing 51-20 loss to the Bears on Sunday, a disgusted Adams delivered a message to the entire organization: get better or get out. "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 said, via The Tennessean. "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." Barring a miraculous turnaround, the Titans, 3-6, are all but out of the postseason race. If wholesale ...

  • Seems to me this is the man who locked out Mcnair for the bust Vince Young and then fired one of the best head coaches in the NFL. What goes around comes around.
  • Well said. The loss of coach Fisher was a big mistake, backed by Adams' inability to admit is gross error in Vince Young. Too bad he didn't have the sense to shut his mouth and keep out of things two years ago. Apparently he still hasn't learned. You get what you give, Bud.
  • funny how everyone forgets he won more games than he lost. And he wasn't the reason the team sucks they don't keep veterans on the team and the wideouts are garbage.
  • I sat through the poor excuse for a football game aginst "Da Bears" last Sunday. It was very dissapointing to see more Chicago fans there than Titans fans, but most of the blame for that falls back to Bud Adams. He has got to be the worst owner in the league. He turned the entire town of Houston against the Oilers, and he's doing the same thing here in Tennessee. Bud fired one of the best coaches in the league (Jeff Fisher) because he couldn't get any performance out of his hand-picked quarterback (Vince Young). Nasville needs to buy the team!!!
  • jeff fisher career record was not at all great he had two good runs and that was because steve carried the team. If they would've kept steve for another season and let vince learn it would have been great but you let a drunk in kerry collins lead.
  • As long as the games keep selling out, and most of the seats are filled, Bud's getting his money. There's no incentive for him to spend any more money buying more talent or a coaching staff to improve the team. I believe in supporting the Titans through the bad times as well as the good, but Bud Adams needs to go back to Texas for the Titans ever to survive in th NFL. There's a lot of big money in the Nasville area, and fans will spend to see a competive game, but Bud can't expect them to show up for an a**whoopin' every game...
  • Bud has only himself to blame. You reap what you sew. Worst mistake was letting Jeff Fisher go. Watch and weep Bud
  • Bud did right in letting go of Jeff. did you all for get that jeff got his butt kicked by the patriots and they scored over 50.

Bud Adams lashes out at the embarrassing Titans

The Numbers Behind the Bear’s Domination of the Titans

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”.
