Owner Bud Adams fumes after Tennessee Titans' loss

Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams has seen a lot of football. He hasn't seen many Sundays as depressing as the Titans' 51-20 loss to the Chicago Bears.

"In my 50 years of owning an NFL franchise, I am at a loss to recall a regular-season home game that was such a disappointment for myself and fans of the Titans," Adams told Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. "We were grossly outcoached and outplayed from start to finish today.

"At this time, all aspects of the organization will be closely evaluated, including front office, coaches and players over the next seven games. 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."

That's putting your organization on blast. No one, from general manager Ruston Webster to coach Mike Munchak, should feel safe.

Adams' comments might sound over the top, but the Titans really are one of the worst teams in football despite winning three games this season. They now have lost five games by at least 21 points. No team consistently has been so uncompetitive.
