Q: Adam, I realize it's been a bad season, but does it seem a bit soon to fire Mike Munchak? The Tennessee Titans were a surprising 9-7 team last year, and it seems like this year's letdown is based more on the Titans overachieving last year -- it's easy to forget how bad the team he took over for was from 2010. Thoughts?
-- Bill (California)
A: That's one argument, Bill. But the only thoughts that matter belong to Titans owner Bud Adams, who sounded very cranky when he spoke to Jimmy Wyatt of the Tennessean after the Titans' most recent loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Anyone who read Adams' comments could tell he is unhappy with the way this season has gone and will consider making changes, even if it includes firing Munchak. It's difficult to predict the thinking of a man who turns 90 years old next month, who wants to win now and feels the way Adams does. But I will say this: He hardly made it sound as if Munchak's job is secure.
Q: Which coaches are on the hottest seats in your opinion? Will Chan Gailey remain in Buffalo? What about Mike Mularkey or Jason Garrett?
