An anonymous Titans assistant confirmed that NFL folks are just like you and me: when your boss storms out of a big presentation and tells the nearest reporter he's ready to fire anyone and everyone if this keeps up, said folks get scared. Unfortunately ,this tidbit doesn't bode well for the prospects of anything getting better:
The assistant also told Freeman that some members of the staff have been "covertly" looking for other jobs in the event that they get the axe. That certainly qualifies as a sense of panic.
The one coache who isn't looking for a landing spot is a lock to be Mike Munchak. In fact, it's my bet that Bud just might give Munchak one more year if he ditches his coordinators and brings in someone who can make an immediate impact.
Paul K rightly reminds Bud Adams that more than a little bit of this situation is his fault. He was the one who sat on Fisher for too long so that he was somewhat forced to hire from within and keeps meddling with the front office and coaching staff's plans over the offseason. Those moves might not have killed the franchise, but none of those choices helped us one bit.
Well, what'll ya know; Jake Locker is getting healthy and will be on the field ‘fairly soon' says someone associated with the Titans who's worried about getting Titans fans in those red seats.
The game tape confirms that the one thing Jerry Gray has done right lately is finally figure out how to put Akeem Ayers in roles where he can succeed.
So Griffin is back to sucking, RoJo squandered his last shot at playing time in the Nashville, Babineux must still be pooping on Gray's Wheaties and now Al Afalava is out for 2-3 weeks, so expect to see some great safety play for the rest of the season.
Al's injury could open the door for rookie safety Markell Martin, who has to be activated, cut or put on the IR before this weekend.
This past Sunday was the first time in a while we didn't see much of Mike Martin, but the coaching staff was too busy loving the play of Marks and Casey.
Beyond football: great news to hear that Chuck Pagano's cancer is officially in remission. He's still got a ways to go, but at least now Pagano has the high ground over this insidious malady.
