AP Pro32 comments about Titans
NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Tennessee Titans by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
TENNESSEE TITANS (24)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 28) - At least the music is good in Nashville.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 26) - They need to give coach Mike Munchak more talent to work with.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 24)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 24) - Mike Munchak will make changes to his staff and he has to be a little concerned with Jake Locker as well.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 24) - Mike Munchak gets a reprieve from team owner Bud Adams, but he could be in the same spot next year unless Jake Locker takes a big step forward.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 23) - The Titans allowed an NFL-leading 471 points this season - 141 more points than they scored. Little wonder Tennessee finished 6-10. If you can't keep your opponent out of the end zone, you can't win.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 25) - The Titans say they want Chris Johnson back, but Chris Johnson's not the concern here. The quarterback is.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 24) - The Titans used to be known for aggressive, physical defense. Not anymore.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 26) - Not sure about Jake Locker as the cornerstone of this franchise but he gets another year. The defense needs new leadership and more talent.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 24) - A bad year for the Titans, who have decided to give Mike Munchak one more year to figure it out.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 25) - Jake Locker has one more season to prove he's a bona fide franchise quarterback.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 25) - Interesting how the blame game was played by Bud Adams. Mike Munchak and Ruston Webster stay, Mike Reinfeldt goes.
