    As a season ticket holder I wish we had the ability to ask for a REFUND!!! It's bad enough that we have to pay regular price for preseason and now this - Whatever "this" is sure doesn't resemble any kind of NFL Team.

    '09 playoff loss was terrible.

    But I say 4-12 record in '05.. We were an aging team in the league and our only young "future star" player was Pac-man Jones... we knew a complete re-build was coming.

    Atleast with this team we are one of the youngest teams in the league.


    Another low point: 59-0 to Patriots. :anon::clap:

    I chose the '01 playoff loss. That year I thought it really came down to Baltimore and Tennessee as the two best teams in the league. If we had won that game we would have taken the super bowl.

    Vince Young walking off the field like a punk in Miami was another low one.

    Right now....there really is nothing to look forward.There's no chance to turn the season around. And Munchak will still be here after this season is done.There are weaknesses in many spots with no true dominant player anywhere on the roster who can turn things around.We don't have that one really good player who can lead or lift this team out of the doldrums.QB Jake Locker is already getting beat up with injuries.RB Chris Johnson is completely done and we will have to work on the offensive line after the season if players leave in free agency.On defense we lack a true dominant player who offenses truly fear and we haven't had that since Albert Haynesworth left in '09.If you ask me i think the coaching staff needs to be completely revamped also and that includes Munchak because he looks like he is in over his head.

    The easy answer is Locker and special teams.... but I am leaning toward saying the Lions lost that game rather than we won it.

    I guess it's hard for me to pin down because losing a Super Bowl and those playoff losses with home field were tough. Of those three, I think the 2000 season ending was the worst.

    In '05, times were bad but I felt there was young talent on the team and that a season like that would happen at some point. Reese kept it together too long.

    Now might be worse just because I don't see anything in which to be excited about. Locker might be the future but he's not close right now. There are some young players who have potential but it's hard to be optimistic the Titans will be any more than an average team anytime soon.

    You have it right on here:

    RE Locker -- At least it is not his throwing shoulder that is bad. McNair got banged up but was still great for us. I think we can still give Locker time.

    RE Defence -- Another great point. How many casual NFL fans can name one defender on the Titans. The closest we had to a dominant player was Courtland Finnegan who is gone. . . . . . but we franchised Griffin.

    RE Coaching Staff -- Well, we knew when this staff was put together it was going to be a disaster. But we (myself included) chose to live in denial. I think it says a lot that last year, with minimal offseason exposure to the coaching staff, the Titans did pretty good. This year, with a full offseason the team is much worse. Very telling.

    It also should not be a shock Munch is in over his head. He has spent his entire pro football career with one organization. He only ever coached under one head coach, the guy he replaced. Perhaps Munch could have been good with strong assistents. But these guys are not strong.

    I can honestly say, without being knee-jerk about it, that this is the worst point.

    The Super bowl loss was one of the highest points in Titans history, IMO. To be in part of one of the best SBs in history is great.

    Was at the 2009 playoff game with a lot of you guys. Was depressing, but was not hopeless. And It wasn't a horrible game.

    Last season was the first point where my faith was broken, thanks to the Texans game. The first time I have really seen the Titans slack off and completely look like they weren't trying. Even in 2004 with Doug Johnson, it looked like they cared.
    So.. from 2011 to now would be considered the lowest point in Titans history. The team is full of people that I don't really care much for, and if they cut the entire team, I wouldn't shed a tear.

    I voted right now, and here's why.

    There used to always be this idea of brighter days ahead, like when they fire Fisher, it'll get better, but it's not, its the same. It used to always be 1 of 2 idiots, either Fisher or Young. Now it's everyone. There's not 1 single player on our team that looks like they know whats happening.

    That feeling of hope is slipping away, watching us yesterday was hard, like seeing your kid in pain and being able to do nothing.

    That 0-6 start in 2009, there's was Vince to come save the day. In 2004 we sucked, I knew we sucked, had no hope we'd win enough games to be a playoff team. I'm slowly feeling that way about our team.

    The losses in the post season wasn't the worst, because there was always next year, but we currently look years away from competing, thats devastating to me.
