    So, are you saying professional athletes don't need to be motivated period?
    You are saying that all NFL players are professionals? Just asking, because some are not acting that way. Professionalism is about more than working hard. Conduct is a part of professionalism.

    You are absoloutely right about not benching Britt. One mistake does not warrant that. And I was only giving an example as far as motivation is concerned. However, if you fumble twice in the same game after it was stressed during the week leading up to the game, you should ride the bench for being a moron.

    I am not even concerned with Hasselbeck's INT. It was dumb, but it happens. Hell, even Manning and Brady have brainfarts like that from time to time.

    Ok, maybe I was not clear about what I actually mean. All I am trying to say is that sometimes you need a little kick in the butt in order to get going again. Maybe you need a hug. People are motivated by different things and people should be able to motivate themselves. However, sometimes they do need inspiration in order to do so.

    Conduct on or off the field? Britt's stupid stuff off the field is not professional in any way. In turn, he's worked extremely hard to get back onto the field after his injury. That takes more motivation than what most of us will ever know.

    I think what we're talking about is motivation as it impacts performance on the field. Was Britt motivated to succeed? I think so. I didn't see a lack of effort. The opponent made a play. Britt maybe could have been more aware but was trying to make a play. I, in no way, can blame Munch in any way for the outcome of that play. It was an isolated incident.

    You add up a bunch of isolated incidents and the Titans are down 28-2. Game over.

    "People" as in "players at the professional level"? I can see a pep talk being nice for a player who is losing some confidence but motivation to succeed should not ever be needed. Coaches need to focus on putting the players in the best position to succeed—not worry about whether or not they want to.

    I swear, Frank Wycheck is the biggest apologist/homer on the face of the earth. He just said on the radio "Munchak is doing a GREAT job!" Even his co-hosts had to laugh.

    I honestly don't think I've ever heard him say a negative thing about a Titan coach.

    He'd be an upgrade for sure. But I can't say that's necessarily the direction I'd prefer to go. Also, I'm betting if he's fired that he opts to take some time off. 14 years in that tough Philly market, plus the recent death of his son. I'd bet he's looking forward to a little R&R.

    I see more negatives than positives in getting a new HC.... most of it stems from hiring within the circle.... can you imagine a Bruce Matthews hiring? ... or on the extremely miniscule chance that grey is the HC?.... y'all keep thinking that munch is a horrible coach and there's no way to go but up if he's fired... but I assure you.... it could be a lot..lot... worse...

    Well, if we are dumb enough to hire an in-house scrub from the staff of the in-house scrub we previously hired then this entire front office deserves to be immediately fired and Bud deserves an immediate ride to a home for the senile.

    This is one of those things that's fun to say but really isn't based in reality. Could we do worse? Sure. I guess. Could we do "a lot..lot...worse"? No. When you look at what's been going on this season, it's just not possible to do much worse.
