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.

SELFIE CRASH

ORIENT, Maine (AP) -- Texting and driving? Not safe. Driving while taking a selfie? Even more not safe. Police in Maine say a man crashed his car while taking a selfie with his passengers. Authorities say several people were hurt when 29-year-old Jordan Toner lost control of the vehicle he was driving with seven passengers. When he leaned over to take the selfie, his car ran off the road and hit a tree. He's been hit with a distracted driving summons.

DESTINY'S CHALLENGE

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies in Idaho are trying to find their destiny. That's Destiny as in the girl's name -- not their reason for being. Authorities have been interviewing more than a dozen girls named Destiny as they try to crack a vandalism case. It seems someone spray-painted a prom invitation on part of the Black Cliffs in southwest Idaho back in May. The message read: "Destiny, Prom?" If authorities can track down who was trying to woo Destiny, that person's destiny could be jail. The crime is punishable by up to six months behind bars and a fine of $1,000.

GRENADE BROUGHT TO POLICE STATION

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- A grenade in hand -- was worth a lot of concern to police in South Burlington, Vermont. A woman found a hand grenade in her grandfather's belongings -- and decided to bring it to the police station. That got their attention. Police cleared the department and nearby buildings -- because they weren't sure if the grenade was live. In the end, the state bomb squad had to come in to deal with the grenade. As late as yesterday, authorities hadn't determined whether the grenade was dangerous or inactive. They are urging residents who find grenades or other potentially devices to leave them where they are -- and call the police.

TELESCOPE MISTAKEN FOR RIFLE

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- They were hoping to check out some stars. But the first light they saw when trying to use their telescope -- was that from police officers who mistook their telescope for a rifle. Levi Joraanstad and Colin Waldera were setting up their telescope behind their apartment Monday when police flashed a bright light into their eyes and told them to freeze. The students couldn't see who was shining the light -- and thought it was a prank by other students. Despite the confusion, it turned out O.K. Police say the students were never in any danger -- and that police approached them because they'd rather be safe than sorry.
