There is only so much that a team and a franchise can handle under certain people and head coach Mike Munchak may be at his limits when coaching the Tennessee Titans. Bud Adams, current owner of the team really likes Munchak and the history that he brings to the franchise.

Munchak is the sixteenth coach to lead the team for the Titans/Oilers franchise. He was named head coach on February 7, 2011 and before he was the coach, he had a playing career with the Oilers. Munchak spent 12 years playing for the Houston Oilers which included nine Pro Bowl invitations and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2001. In 1996 he had the honor of getting his Houston Oilers jersey, number 63, retired in 1996.

Between his playing and head coaching career Munchak was the offensive line coach in 1997 and stayed at that position for 14 years. When he was giving the head coach job in 2011 he was able to coach the team through a 9-7 season just barely missing the playoffs.

But this season is a much different story.

The Titans are 5-10 going into the last week of their 2012 season and Munchak has seen it all. If things don’t change drastically then you can bet that Munchak could be out of the job before his contract is up in 2014. The Titans just can’t afford it as a franchise. I like Munchak but there are good players on the team.

They just need to executed better. Period.
