    I think barring a miraculous second half of the season and a playoff berth, Munch is likely out after this season.

    I highly, highly doubt the team moves. I think we're still a few years away from L.A. having a team. And London is a logistical nightmare. And the Jagrags would move before we would.

    If Bud has a grandson, he obviously has kids. Have his kids passed away and his grandson is his only heir? Why wouldn't one of his kids just take over. Just curious.

    I would really like to see in writing what the stipulations are as far as buying out the stadium and moving.

    I seriously doubt that is even a remote possibility, but if it is, I would like to konw.

    Sickens me that this man who helped mold the NFL never got a ring

    Is the succession plan even confirmed? Is there a chance the team is sold to entirely new ownership?

    Yea it's weird that his grandson would take over, not a son or something? Hopefully he's interested in fielding a winning product and keeping that product in Tennessee.

    Still not 100% believing this until Wyatt or someone very credible confirms.

    "That plan, from all indications, is for the team to remain in the Adams family with interest split among his daughters, Susie Smith and Amy Strunk, and their families, as well as the surviving members of his late son Kenneth Adams III’s family.

    That’s where Adams’ grandson, Kenneth Adams IV, comes into the picture. While Adams’ daughters’ families apparently have no interest in running the Titans – son-in-law Tommy Smith apparently declined an opportunity to come to Nashville and run the team several years ago – Kenneth Adams has been working for the Titans in Nashville since graduating from the University of the South in 2006."

    His son Bud Adams III died some time ago according to that article I posted.
