Sunday's Loss to Packers is Biggest Embarrassment Yet for Titans

No one needed a crystal ball to have a good idea what was going to happen in Green Bay on Sunday. It was one of the sloppiest games that the Tennessee Titans have played. Watching the game, I thought to myself, “I’d rather re-watch the game against the Chicago Bears.”

If it wasn’t for the last-minute touchdown they got, it would have been a complete shut out. The inability to complete a pass was at an all-time high for the season – almost every single pass from Jake Locker was broken up or nowhere near a receiver. It wasn’t until late in the first quarter before the Titans even got into the Green Bay Packers’ territory.

It didn’t help that out of all teams, they were facing was the team that had already clinched the NFC North. But, it isn’t like the Packers were happy enough with the clinch. They wanted a better position in the playoffs. And that’s exactly what they got when they handed  a brutal 55-7 beat down to the Titans.

I wonder if Bud Adams is going to have a nice little chit-chat with the Titans again like he did after the game against the Bears. Head coach Mike Munchak has a contract lasting through the 2014 season, but if they continue to play this horribly, it’s going to be hard to hang on to everyone on the staff.

The Titans have one more game left, but there is no hope for their season – and it has been that way for a few weeks. The best thing is to go out on a good note, because they really should be able to grab a win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars are one of the only teams in the NFL that is doing worse than the Titans.

Then they have to worry about next year.
