Munchak hopes for support from Webster


Next week, Titans CEO Tommy Smith will decide whether a man who has been employed by the franchise for more than three decades will be around for at least another year.  Coach Mike Munchak, a Hall of Fame offensive lineman with the team when the team was known as the Houston Oilers, hopes that G.M. Ruston Webster will support Munchak at the proper time.

“I think there would be a discussion on ‘Does he see it the same way I do?‘” Munchak said Monday, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.  “I am sure not everything would be on the same page, but that’s pretty much impossible on trying to figure out how to do it among coaches and players and other things you have to do.  But I don’t know why we’d be far off.”

Munchak wasn’t willing to say whether he believes Webster will support him.

“I think you’d have to ask Ruston that question probably, on how he feels,” Munchak said. “But this is a business. . . . We need to figure out, ‘Here’s how I think we need to do it, here’s what I think we need to do.’  And if we are all on the same page we go for it.  And if not, then obviously there’s changes made. . . .  We want to win and it’s a matter of whose vision we’re going to jump on.”

Wyatt writes that Webster likely will have a say in whether Munchak will return.  But why should anyone assume Webster will return?  If Smith intends to start fresh, the Titans could have both a new coach and a new G.M.

As Smith has said, the Titans aren’t in the losing business.  The challenge will be to assess responsibility for the fact that the team recently has been in the non-winning business.  It could be Munchak.  It could be Webster.  It could be someone else.

Regardless, if the goal is to turn a losing team into a winner, it’s impossible to declare anyone whose fingerprints have been on the franchise as safe.

  1. If your asking to see support through the media, that can’t can’t be a good thing. That would be like asking for the support of your boss by talking to the bum on the corner to talk to your boss for you. If your boss is not seeing what your seeing already then your screwed. Munchak can find some kind of consolation prize in the fact he will probably beat the Texans this weekend.

  2. Vicnocal that is arnold from different strokes who was played by the great american actor gary coleman who is best known for his catch phrase what chu talkin about willis. Who was played by the immortal todd bridges. They had a sister on the show played by the late dana plato. God rest her soul. I wish I could say that I looked all of this up but it was just in my brain in some place very deep and dark that I really dont like visiting.

  3. Munchak has done a good job. If anything, the team has overachieved based on their talent level. The problem is their talent level is not that high aside from CJ1K and their young WRs.

    Throw in that Locker has mostly been injured and it looks like Munchak has won about as many games as could be expected with a mediocre defense, a backup QB, and a RB who looks for the big play too often and ends up leaving yards on the field each game.
