There is one person close to Bud Adams' heart who is publicly urging him to hire Mike Munchak as the next head coach: Earl Campbell. Campbell has felt cut off from the franchise for which he played almost his entire career since it moved to Nashville, but he'd be back on board if Adams hired Munchak. Munch was one of the guys who made a name for himself paving holes for Campbell's final few years in the league, and now the famed running back is making no secret of the fact that he's a Munchak fan. I will say that for as quite as Munchak is as an assistant coach, his supporters are ardent and plentiful.

When was the last time a first-ballot HOF quarterback left a franchise and was as promptly forgotten as much as Favre in Green Bay? I think we can all understand exactly why Packers fans feel like they do, but it's a bit shocking if you think back on the situations that would be at least superficially analogous in recent history.
The Tennessean would like you to know they feel like sour cream is a great basis for many game-day dips. And people wonder why newspapers are dying.
