My media source allowed me inside access into the Titans lockeroom. Here is Mike Munchak's postgame speech to the team.
[Munchak] Alright team, I don't know what that was, but that was definitely not Titan football. We looked horrible in all aspects today. On special teams, we gotta tighten up that protection and Darius, just a quick FYI, you are allowed to take a knee in the end zone. Remember that next time you decide to run after you catch the ball behind the goal post.
Defensively, I was quite pleased with our effort down in the trenches. As a lineman, I know how much it matters to dominate the line of scrimmage and today guys, you guys won down low. I can't say the same for our coverage unit. Michael, I'm getting extremely tired of calling your name son. I'm not sure what you were thinking on that idiotic roughing the passer penalty. You led with your head yet decided to hit with your arms. Even when you make a mistake, you do it wrong. Speaking of wrong, Ryan. Hey Ryan! Next time you sneak onto the field, I will cut you from this team immediately. You lost your job to Coty fair and square, now stay on the sideline.
Offensively, I thought we struggled early on to put some drives together- had a lot of drops. Guys, you gotta do a better job of looking the ball into your hands! Kenny! Stop laughing Kenny. Grow up! This is what I'm talking about fellas. You gotta be a pro. Know your job and do it! Now whether we are in the playoff hunt or not we will come out and fight hard. Hey, who is that? Cook? What are you doing?
[Cook] Man I'm out of here, y'all need to trade me.
[Munchak] Alright, see you later Jared. Anyways, like I was saying, you guys need to hold each other accountable. We need someone to step up. Someone to be a pro and lead this team when we need a spark..Sit down Rusty! Now, Chris....Will somebody wake up coach Palmer. Hey, yea Chris, I want to see you in my office. No, you can leave the bag of Werther's originals out here. "
