Titans owner says she’ll do “everything in my power” to fix team

The Titans have made plenty of changes lately, and owner Amy Adams Strunk reached out to her season-ticket holders to say she’d do everything in her power to fix things.

And since it’s been a bit since they’ve been any good at football, she’s also good enough to not raise ticket prices this offseason.

“I realize we have not met your expectations, and our recent on-field performance is unacceptable,” Strunk wrote, via the Associated Press. “My goal is simple: to return the Titans to the consistent playoff contender we were during our first several years in Nashville.”

Since she took over last March, she’s hired a new team president (Steve Underwood), General Manager (Jon Robinson) and coach (Mike Mularkey). That kind of turnover is reasonable, since they’re 5-27 the last two years, and earned the top pick in this year’s draft the old-fashioned way — by stinking.

They’ve had just one winning season in the last seven, and haven’t won a playoff game since after the 2002 season.

“I will do everything in my power to get this team back among the upper echelon of the league,” Strunk wrote. “I thank you for your continued support of the Titans, and we are hard at work to give you the team that you deserve.”

That means they have to beat the bushes to sell more tickets, and the letter included a number of perks, including a lunch or dinner with Strunk, Underwood, Robinson, and Mularkey, along with vouchers for concessions.

  1. Drafting Mariota and firing Whisenhunt was a great start. She obviously cares more about football than her predecessors, who hired Whisenhunt and had jetsam and flotsam for QBs.

    This team has some assets at WR, RB, and on the O-line that it can improve on if done correctly. Their defense also has a few good players, but needs massive improvement to be competitive.

  2. “Everything in my power…” like only hiring a GM that will hire Mike Mularky as the head coach? Now I feel great!

    Please just sell.

  3. What’s Mularky’s record as a hc? Obviously the guy to turn a franchise around.

    Is it telling that they didn’t pick up Chip who has a relationship with their ab?

  5. Well, you’ve got a young QB who doesn’t suck and isn’t out partying in Vegas & getting arrested. That’s a pretty good start toward getting your team better.

    Hey, I wish the Bears had Mariota, honestly. Trade you. Straight up, Cutler for Mariota. Sound good?

  6. Hire a coach that has an ability to coach and put together a decent staff & I will consider buying another set of psl’s. Until then, I’ll just keep my money.

  7. Blah blah blah. Blah blah, bla’ blah bla’ blah. Blah blah. Blah. Blah. (Long, slow fart noise) aaaand blah.

    I watched football this season as a fan of football, not as a Titans season ticket holder….for the first time in 7 years. It’s amazing how much I enjoyed the game when I didn’t feel like someone was wasting my money.

  8. “Consistent playoff contender” might also describe the Bengals, who have made 5 consecutive playoff appearances and 6 in the past 7 seasons, but also lost their opener every time. But then again, Mularkey has never even been to the playoffs as a head coach, so baby steps.

  9. “I will do everything in my power to get this team back among the upper echelon of the league,”

    Whelp, so much for that. She’s the Tomsula of NFL owners.

  10. Aside for a quarterback the team needs pretty much everything else to improve.

    The first pick in the 2016 draft because you sucked for another year is a start….until you f#@k that up….

    Firing Whistlehump was the best move during the 2015 season…..keeping Mike Mularkey is just kicking the can down the road another year….4-12 isn’t going to be pretty later this year.

    No playoff wins in almost…..14 years??? Really? How many times can you say rebuilding year with a straight face???

    Sell the team to someone who knows football and didn’t pop out of someone who married into it….

  11. Meanwhile my sources tell me she is secretly trying to put together a bad team in the hopes that it will drive down attendance thus letting her get out of the stadium lease early so she can move to a tropical destination. However a group of rag tag and castoff players is determined to overcome the odds and have a winning season.
