If Titans owner Bud Adams had been there in person, he might have told his team they were number one.
Since he was at home in Houston, all he could do was grab the remote and turn the television off, as many of his customers doubtless did during the 55-7 drubbing at the hands of the Packers.
“I was pretty upset,” Adams told Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean. “I just didn’t want to watch any more of that mess.”
Asked whether that anger was enough to make him make a coaching change, Adams said the results were such he might consider setting aside his personal feelings for coach Mike Munchak.
“I like Mike, I really do. But liking him and getting the job done are two different things,” Adams said. “If he is not getting the job done, that is what I have to find out. Right now, we are not looking very good. Something is wrong and I want to find out what the problem is and what needs to be done to fix it.”
Munchak has a contract through 2014, and was 9-7 last season. But that was with quarterback Matt Hasselbeck at the wheel, because Jake Locker wasn’t deemed ready. He doesn’t appear that way now, leading Adams to question the future of his team.
“I want to sit down with Mike and our guys and discuss the whole thing with them and see why we are not doing better,” Adams said. “It is not against the law to check with my people. Mike will tell me what he thinks is wrong. . . .
“I want to find out how he feels why we can’t win more games. The way we played today — my God, I wouldn’t even want to come and watch that.”
Adams might be 89 years old, but you can’t say he doesn’t have a handle on the feelings of his customers.
