Man, that Titans team just went into the crapper. Big time.

I mean, there is seriously a strong chance that the Titans end up drafting in the Top 5 every year for the next several years.

Matthews made a bad long-term decision, IMO.

Yep. I suddenly feel invigorated by all of the Titans woes.

To think that we won't have those trash talkers over here for a few years, well it's just wonderful. I know they are all sitting around, moping, as a collective group of fans...wondering how they could end up with Munchak as their coach and no OC, no DC, and no QB.

It ain't as bleak here anymore. That outlook is reserved for Titans fans.

I might even change my avatar and sig.

I guess Bruce is gone. Oh well that sucks and you can't wish him or Mike good luck because they coach our natural rival. Oh well.

Mike could be in an impossible situation with or without luck. Their team could really struggle next year...if there is even a legit season

If their D improves just a little bit, with CJ running behind the same line he's run behind the last three years, an offensive guy running the show....

I agree.

Yep, they're going to suck bad. I mean, we all know you can't win if you hire buddies to coach with you.

Munch going after all his old teamates will either make or break him as a HC.

Quote:
Titans coach Mike Munchak is targeting former Texans defensive coordinator Frank Bush to coach the linebackers in Nashville.
Bush was a teammate of Munchak's on the Oilers. He's not going to get another coordinator job after the Texans defense rolled over in 2010. Bush's addition would leave assistant head coach/linebackers Dave McGinnis in limbo.

It's a done deal.

Munchak hires Matthews to coach offensive line

Quote:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – New Tennessee coach Mike Munchak has hired his friend and former teammate, Hall of Fame lineman Bruce Matthews, to coach the Titans' offensive line.

Matthews was selected in the first round of the 1983 NFL Draft by the then-Houston Oilers and went on to play 19 seasons for the franchise, earning 14 consecutive Pro Bowl selections and nine first-team All-Pro honors. He played all five positions on the offensive line and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007.

He spent the last two seasons as an offensive assistant for the Houston Texans and replaces Munchak, who was hired as Jeff Fisher's successor on Monday.

Matthews says working for Tennessee with Munchak is an opportunity of a lifetime for him.
Sorry Bruce, but you're the enemy now. Good luck, and thanks.

Losing Matthews to a divisional rival is just stupid.

We're nice guys and on the right track. We don't have to resort to petty tactics like getting compensation for assets we lose to other teams. We are above that sort of thing.

Default Titans Name Bruce Matthews OL Coach

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=6106441

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- New Tennessee coach Mike Munchak has hired his friend and former teammate, Hall of Fame lineman Bruce Matthews, to coach the Titans' offensive line.

Matthews was selected in the first round of the 1983 NFL Draft by the then-Houston Oilers and went on to play 19 seasons for the franchise, earning 14 consecutive Pro Bowl selections and nine first-team All-Pro honors. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007.

"For me this is an opportunity of a lifetime," Matthews said. "It is such a unique opportunity to work with Mike because I think he will do a great job. It is just one of those things I couldn't pass up."

He spent the last two seasons as an offensive assistant for the Houston Texans and replaces Munchak, who was hired as Jeff Fisher's successor on Monday. Among the players he will be coaching is his son, Kevin, who was signed to the Titans' active roster in December after spending the season on the team's practice squad.

Munchak said Matthews should be able to easily pick up where he left off at the offensive line since Matthews is so familiar with the Titans' system. Matthews started as a rookie out of Southern California and played all five positions on the offensive line, starting 116 at guard, 87 at center and 39 at tackle.

"I am very excited that we were able to work out something with Bruce," Munchak said. "He is a great friend, but he also is a great coach. He has paid his dues as an assistant coach and is ready for this opportunity."
