The Tennessee Titans suffered a horrific loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday during play in week nine of the NFL season by a score of 51-20 however the effort the Titans displayed and the final score may not be the most embarrassing moment of this entire ordeal for the team to get over.
The most embarrassing part of this all may have come when Titans owner Bud Adams ripped his team to the Nashville Tennessean by saying they were “grossly outclassed” and that he vowed to “look at all alternatives” in order to improve his beloved franchise.
Adams also told the local newspaper who covers the Titans “In my 50 years of owning an NFL franchise, I am at a loss to recall a regular-season home game that was such as disappointment for myself and fans of the Titans”. Adams has owned the franchise since they originated as the Houston Oilers in 1960 as a member of the AFL, which Adams also was a co-founder of.
The game was virtually over and done with at the conclusion of the opening quarter where the Bears scored four seemingly effortless touchdowns as opposed to the Titans safety for a commanding 28-2 lead. Tennessee didn’t make their first trip into the endzone until Matt Hasselbeck and Nate Washington hooked up on a 30-yard touchdown strike with 11:25 remaining in the third quarter.
The loss now has the Titans sitting at 3-6 with their chances at a post-season berth slipping away right before their very eyes and they have absolutely no one to blame but the faces that they see in the mirror each and everyday. Up next for the Titans is a date with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Sun Life Stadium in Miami in what could be a season-altering contest.
