Reason #1 Mike Munchak should be fired: Be a Pro. Do your Job.

This is the first in a multi-part series on why Mike Munchak should be fired at the end of the season.

When Bud Adams settled for Mike Munchak after Jeff Fisher left, Munch said he would have a very clear message for the players:

Be a pro. Do your job.
There was even a lot made of the fact that he had that hung on the wall inside of then Baptist Sports Park. It all sounded so nice after the bad culture this team had at the end of the Fisher era.

The problem now is that we are 3 years down the road and nothing has changed. The Titans are still committing dumb penalties game in and game out. The latest came yesterday when Moises Fokou blasted Donald Brown late and away from the play yesterday when the Titans were about to get off the field on third down.

That is in direct contradiction to Munchak's rallying cry. It would be one thing if that was an isolated incident, but it isn't. The Titans are in the top half of the league in penalties committed per game. We see the same level of undisciplined play now that we saw under Jeff Fisher.

Mike Munchak didn't have a resume that suggested he was ready to be a head coach. I have to believe that part of the reason he got the job in the first place was because he sold Mr. Adams on the fact that he could clean up the team. He hasn't done that. Time for him to go.
