    1. Please fire Munchak. He has no plan that warrants him staying.
    2. Please fire Gray. D was probably the worst in franchise history. Every game they rush four DL's and play zone behind it should be forfeited immediately.
    3. Switch to a 3-4 Defense. Klug and Martin are prototypical 3-4 DE's. Marks and Casey can do damage as NT's. A line backing core of Wimbley, Ayers, McCarthy, and Brown could do damage. Right now, the personnel aren't built for Blitzing, which is what they have to do to get pressure w/ the DL. The Secondary doesn't cover well, but tackle WR's pretty good. They need pressure to be truly effective.
    4. Go get Mike Vick in FA and let him compete with Locker for the QB job. Personally, I think Locker is a quality back up, but is too limited in accuracy and decision making to be a full time starter. Also, he is not athletic enough and too injury prone to make up for his weaknesses by being a "running QB". He has the skill set of McNair without the body or athleticism. He'd be the ideal backup in a system that is built for a running QB in the NFL.
    5. Hire Lovie Smith and let him pick the Coordinators, with a keen eye on running the 3-4 D and a semi-spread O, (not the read option mess though).
    6. See if Stephen Jackson is willing to come to TN in FA.
    7. Hit the draft with the intentions of beefing up the O line.

    I think with the personnel and the cap room the Titans have, these changes would at least guarentee playoffs next year.

    We can maybe hope for #7 actually panning out. Maaaaaaaaaaybe.

    It doesn't look like Gray's getting the boot even though he should so I don't see us switching to a 3-4 any time soon. Vick ain't happening. Lovie Smith ain't happening either. Stephen Jackson would make for a great Smash and Dash revival tour. OL better be upgraded through FA AND the draft.

    #1 - It's not happening, as Bud has already announced
    #2 - Hopefully it will happen
    #3 - Siwtching to the 34 doesn't magically fix your defense
    #4 - Stupid
    #5 - See #1
    #6 - SJAX is signing with a SB caliber team
    #7 - Probable

    Titans tied for 9th in the league for sacks, must have one hell of a defensive line since we never blitz.

    Actually brown and ayers accounted for 12.5 of our sacks.

    I was being sarcastic (something that doenst always work on the internet lol)

    So sick and tired of people saying all we do is rush 4 and drop into coverage. Its almost like they didnt watch us play this season or something.

    Well earlier in the year we rarely blitzed. So that assessment is somewhat true. Then ayers started seeing sacks and then we started blitzing brown also. Gray kept tweaking what we were doing for a minute. The blitzes worked.
