Owner Bud Adams is not a Patient Man: Tennessee Titans Future

Coming off a 9-7 season in 2011, Mike Munchak, the former Oilers offensive lineman and now Tennessee Titans head coach, had gained some trust from notoriously unpleased owner Bud Adams heading into this season.

However, after an embarrassing blowout loss to the Chicago Bears in Nashville, Adams voiced his displeasure with his coach and team and hinted at making some changes:

If performance and competitiveness does not improve, I will look at all alternatives to get back to having the Titans become a playoff and championship football team."

And that was back in early November. Imagine how he feels after his team entered their final game of the season with the chance to set a record for point allowed in a season? Probably not too shabby. The Titans offense appeared elementary while their defense was completely nonexistent all season. The Titans have given up 30+ points almost every week of the season while their offense has been unable to put up any semblance of a fight.  

Jake Locker never got into a groove because of a weak offensive line (which used to be the Titans strength) and the same goes for Chris Johnson's inconsistencies. Without a good passing attack, his talent will be wasted in the backfield because there will be no reason for the change of pace style of play. Rest assured, Bud Adams will make the personnel changes he needs to in order to provide his team an opportunity to win, but will it be enough? How long will this rebuilding process take? 

Chris Johnson won't be the quickest RB in the game forever...and he doesn't want to waste that talent.
