Give The Titans Coach Another Year - 12/30/13

  I'm not a sportscaster and don't play one on tv.  I'm just a guy who follows the Titans, follows them on tv and radio and goes to an occasional game in person.  Another season has come and gone and once more the Titans aren't in the playoffs.
  No matter where you come down on what happened this year, I think we can agree the Titans were better, competitive and in virtually every game.  I didn't see anyone giving up or throwing in the towel.  I think head coach Mike Munchak deserves another year.  His first year was a mess not of his making.  Jeff Fisher departed late, leaving Munchak little to choose from when putting together a staff.  Last year the team started the season with an aging veteran quarterback with the idea of handing Jake Locker the keys a few games in.  Locker showed signs of steady growth but got hurt and was on the sidelines.  
  I think the Titans made a lot of positive moves last off season to make this team better.  If Locker or even number two signal calle,r Ryan Fitzpatrick, is under center all sixteen games, I think the Titans would have had a winning record and possibly make the playoffs. 
  The Titans need to continue making roster moves to improve the on-field product.  The quarterback position is so important and the Titans have been nothing but inconsistent there. 
  I say give Munchak another year.  Fans can hope Locker is the answer and that he can stay on the field for something closer to sixteen games.  Beyond that, I say ask Chris Johnson to take a pay cut to something closer to what his on-field production merits and use that money to hire a pass rusher or two. 
  This team is closer to the playoffs than I think some fans want to give it credit for.  It's worth another year before blowing up this coaching staff.  One man's opinion.  It will be interesting to see how Titans brass sees it.

DROUGHT-GOLD RUSH EVENT

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- The rush is off -- because of a lack of water. The California drought is forcing officials to cancel Sacramento's annual Gold Rush Days. Organizers usually bring in nearly 200 tons of dirt. It's used to transform the Old Sacramento neighborhood into a scene from the 1850s, including horses, wagons and street performances. But too much water would be needed to dampen the dirt and later clean it up. Steve Hammond, president of the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau, notes the dry conditions also help create a fire hazard. The Sacramento event is usually held during the Labor Day weekend.

90 AND SKYDIVING

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Skydiving has always been a dream for Evelyn Stolz -- and she's finally done it age 90. The St. Louis woman hit the silk Sunday with her family watching. KSDK-TV reports Stolz served in the Navy during World War II and wanted to be a parachute rigger. But she didn't qualify because at 95 pounds she was considered too small.

POLYGAMOUS COMPOUND-HOTEL

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- You don't need more than one spouse to sleep at a former polygamist's compound. The complex in southern Utah is now called America's Most Wanted Suites and Bed and Breakfast. It was built for imprisoned polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs, who was once on the FBI's most wanted list. Former Jeffs bodyguard Willie Jessop runs the b-and-b. He won ownership of the property in a successful lawsuit against Jeffs' church. While the compound was built for Jeffs he never lived there. Guests now pay from $85 to $200 a night.
