    Everything Munch has done regarding the offensive line has been absolutely wrong since he became the head coach.

    Go back to his introductory press conference. "This offensive line is good enough to win a Super Bowl." Turned out to be the worst line we had since, well, ever.

    In 2012 he decides to essentially keep 4/5 of the line the same while bringing in a 34-year old Steve Hutchinson, who ended the last two years on IR and flipping Leroy Harris to right guard. Failed miserably.

    In 2013 we commit almost $50 million to a good but not great guard when another good but not great guard went to Denver for less than $30 million. We also waste a top-ten selection on a guard(don't care what anyone says, interior linemen that high are a waste).

    It's inconceivable how much a great offensive line coach has been so wrong about his former unit.

    I couldn't agree more. I still like the Warmack pick, because I do think that he WILL be good. I also know that they were in "Win Now" mode. The problems are much deeper than the OL though. I have a feeling Munch won't be around next season and many new faces may be around. QB/RB/OL/MLB are all TERRIBLE right now.

    The D is strong this year. I do not think they need to be cleaned.

    If Munch is fired, it likely means everyone goes. Even if Williams were to be kept, it's doubtful he'd keep all the current position coaches.

    The D has been very impressive. I would like to see at least a solid MLB and some secondary depth (S) etc...but they have been playing out of their minds considering how much they are on the field. The offense is so bad, in so many ways.....Ugh...This sucks gang

    Bruce was an unconventional OL when he played. Much of what he did would not work for most OLs in the league. Which could factor into making him a less than stellar OL coach.

    I think at the very least Rocker should be given consideration.

    How is that so though? When Fisher was fired, Bud didn't touch anyone but the new head coach and left it to him.

    Also, this is assuming Bud lasts that long. I heard he isn't in great condition right now. Do we know who succeeds him as owner? Is that person even involved in day to day activities?

    I have to admit, I truly didn't think Fitz would be THIS bad...I also didn't think CJ would have another year of looking like crap and averaging 2 YPC. Locker looked good, and of course, he goes down along with Greene (just the Titans luck)...The OL had us all hyped up, and the result is a duplicate of last year. What a boring, predictable offense to watch. I just hope for our sake, that next year brings some new life and positive change to the offense, because I do think that the Defense will keep the Titans interesting and in games.
