    Chris Palmer!!! The same great guy who helped our offense suck will now lead our former team and I hope he does the same there!!


    “I was able to talk to a number of candidates and Chris was the coach who fit what I was looking for,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said in a team-issued release. “Chris has a wealth of experience as a coordinator and a coach. He is a great teacher of the game and has been around a variety of good coaches and winning football programs. He has helped develop many quarterbacks and understands what that process is like, as he raised their games to a high level over time.”

    And Carrs inability to read defenses didn't help either. I don't think Palmer is that bad.

    Palmer was a coach on the 35-3 team. Looks like the Titans are trying to assemble a cast of quite a few folks from that game. This will truly test the limits of karma next season.

    KARMA, ARE YOU LISTENING??? :fortune:

    VY is just as bad as Carr was when it comes to recognizing defensive fronts. It ought to be interesting to see what they do with the QB situation going forward.

    No doubt. But sometimes a good overkill is in the cards. Especially when it comes to Duds team.

    In all seriousness, the titans fans have known nothing but Fisher. They may have hit the jackpot with Munchak. But they also may just now be entering that revolving door alot of other teams get stuck in for years. We definitely shall see.

    What has Palmer actually done to get these excuses already?

    "He has helped develop many quarterbacks and understands what that process is like, as he raised their games to a high level over time.”

    Are you kidding me? What has he done in the last 10 years to develop QB's? Nothing. Browns head coach, crap. Texans OC, crap. Cowboys QB coach, crap. Giants QB coach, Manning already in his 4th season when Palmer arrived. Hartford Colonials?

    If you need anymore evidence that the Titans are taking a QB #8 here it is.

    Palmer spent way to much time trying to correct the small flaws in Carr's throwing motion .

    Maybe so, but Vince did improve and has other tools in his ability to make up for it. He's way better than Carr and it's not even close. I'm not sure if Vince will even start over there or what his situation even is with that team.

    Small flaws in his motion? You may be being more than a little kind haha.

    Sadly, his poor mechanics were public knowledge to anyone not named Charlie Casserley. But the marketing dept. got their face of the franchise...and that was enough for Uncle Bob

    Vince is going to have a chance to start. No doubt. Carr will be lucky to remain employed in the NFL. UFL here we go!

    I don't know much about Palmer and therefore this is the hire that doesn't excite me. On the surface I have no idea why you would want ot hire a 61-year-old who recently retired from the NFL. Every other coach seems set up to last for a while (if the team performs).

    I guess their line of thinking is that with all the young blood in that coaching staff it couldnt hurt to have a coach with alot of experience. Especially at the most important position on the field. And especially when you are drafting a young QB with your first pick in a couple of months.

    I still think drafting a QB at 8 will be a mistake, but you're right the possibility definitely improved with this hire considering what he's been tasked with in the past. I know nothing of his playacalling as I didn't pay much attention when he was in Houston or Jacksonville. Not inspired by this hire at all. We'll see, though.

    I wouldn't pay much attention to his play calling in Houston. I think his hands were tied both by the HC and by the QB. He would definitely get the ball in CJ's hands whether by rush or pass.

    Wasn't Palmer a coach on that post-expansion Browns team that made it
    to the playoffs?
