12:10 PM ET 11.07 | Everything went wrong for the Titans in a 51-20 loss to the Chicago Bears, but somehow the game got a little bit worse for Matt Hasselbeck as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the NFL fined the Titans quarterback $15,750 for a horse collar tackle of Kelvin Hayden. The penalty occurred in the fourth quarter with the Bears already up 44-12 after Hayden picked up a fumble from tight end Jared Cook. The horse collar tackle that brought down Hayden on the Titans' four-yard line drew a penalty that moved the ball half the distance to the goal. The Bears scored on a five-yard touchdown pass from Jay Cutler to Brandon Marshall three plays later to extend their lead to 51-12.

The NFL should have fined the whole Titan team for their lackluster performance last Sunday against the Bears.

Hasselbeck was the only Titan fast enough to catch up with Brian Urlacher on his TD run--or else, he was the only one who cared enough to try. When the QB is your most determined tackler, you have problems. When it is an aging QB with a bad back, you need to clean house. Starting with the coach.
