"Mike Munchak, Titans: Unfortunately, almost a lock to get fired."

 

Hmmmmmm....I think it's still up in the air unless we get embarrassed the last 2 games.

Link? When did he say this? Not saying I don't believe you; I'm just curious to read it myself.

Dan Phillips who covers the Titans for Fox...

 

A few takeaways from #Titans practice/locker room: the team needs to beat both #Jacksonville & #Houston for Mike Munchak to keep his job.

 

MORE... The players know it. Munchak knows it. I also sense that the #Titans are losing some guys in the locker room. MORE...

 

Don't be surprised if Bernard Pollard isn't back next year. Too bad, because he's DEFINITELY a media favorite. Best quote since @kbull53!

 

I do get the sense the #Titans will play hard though. They won't lay down. We'll see.

If this franchise lets two utterly meaningless wins subject the team to another year of a pointless coaching staff, then failure is deserved.

They can play hard, but just don't win.

 

Done a lot of that lately.


It's about time we hired someone outside of the organization for the first time in forever.

The idea the last two games against pitiful teams would decide Munchak's fate is ridiculous. They already know what they are going to do with Munchak, and all signs point to him being fired. Smith already said coaching as a lame duck was a problem, is he going to get an extension if he beats Houston and the Jags? No.

 

They will let Munchak coach the final two games, talk to him after the season, fire him and say a bunch of nice things about him at the end of the process.

In looking across the league I only see 4 jobs that will be open. Houston, Tennessee, Washington and Detroit. There's a lot of potential openings but I don't see Rex Ryan, Dennis Allen, Tom Coughlin, Jason Garrett, Leslie Frazier, Mike Smith or Greg Schiano losing their jobs.

 

I would think that the Titans would almost have their pick.

Oman was right.
Munchak should have been fired after the offsides call against the Titans in the opening kickoff of the opening preseason game in 2011.

In listening to Chris Mortenson yesterday on ESPN, he said he didn't think MM should lose job if wins out. Seemed to be advocating for him to keep job. Realized Nashville media wants to firing though.

and that is on the coaches. They have to design winning plays; they have to inspire the players to be the best they can be. Do the coaches do that?

It's looking more and more likely that Shanny will return to Washington since Snyder called his bluff and stated he wouldn't pay Shanny and his staff 13M for not coaching next year. Allen, Garret, and Frazier are all potential fires as well. Regardless, the Titans will not have their pick of candidates because Webster isn't going to give the new coach much control. I agree with Oman that Webster will likely hire a coordinator that isn't asking for control.

The Titans don't need a coach that wants control. You think Jay Gruden, Greg Roman or Ken Whisenhunt would need control? I'd take any of them over some egotistical coach that had inflated success in the past.

The last time we had a coach with control, were things any better than they are now?


"Iowa was blessed with the richest soil and the highest scores on intelligence tests in the nation.  Hoover expressed his pride in the self-sufficiency of his Iowa ancestors.  They grew, raised, and made virtually everything they used, purchasing little.  Strong and independent, they were also kind, generous, and God-fearing."  From: The Life of Herbert Hoover, by Glen Jeansonne

There are varying degrees of control. Webster is coming across as more and more of a control freak. The question is that just who he is or is it a result of Munch not being qualified to handle some of the responsibilities? I definitely don't want a coach to have total control butin order to get a good one, they will likely want some input in how the roster is constructed.

I don't think that Webster is stupid. He knows that the new coach will have to have some input. I'd assume he won't hire anyone that doesn't share the same philosophies toward how to build a football team. The thing that scares me is that his philosophy may bring on a coach like Brian Schottenheimer.
