11:11 AM ET 12.16 | When Bud Adams selected Mike Munchak to coach the Titans, it seemed like a great match. The owner loved the thought of the longtime Houston Oilers guard, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, taking over as the face of the franchise. Less than two years later, however, the Titans are stuck in reverse and lack an identity. After posting a better-than-expected 9-7 finish last season, they are 4-9 headed into Monday night's game against the Jets. Could the free fall be enough to cost Munchak his job? Only Adams, 89, knows how it will shake out. The final three games could go a long way in helping him decide, but the Titans have lost three of four since he put everyone in the organization on notice after an embarrassing 51-20 loss to the Bears.

Bud you are getting repaid for the screwing you gave the fans in Houston, Memphis, and the taxpayers of Tennessee.

This seasons on you Bud going all in for Peyton and ignoring what the FOOTBALL men wanted to do reminds me of the VY situation hey wait that was you too

Munchak isn't head coach material. He made bad decisions by hiring Jerry Gray and Chris Palmer, those decisions are on Munchak, not Bud Adams. I would like to see the Titans go after Greg Roman, the 49s offensive coordinator, he could do a lot with Jake Locker, whose playing style is similar to Colin Kaepernick's.

Not too many options left.
