Titans Fans Running Out of Patience

We hoped, as Titans fans, that last night would give us a reason to believe. We were, once again, disappointed.

Last night’s 20-6 loss to the Atlanta Falcons at LP Field has been another in a series of disappointments this preseason for Titans fans.

It began 2 weeks ago with the arrest of Defensive Tackle Randy Starks on domestic assault charges followed by a 19-16 loss at home against the New Orleans Saints. The next week saw our Titans embarrassed by the Denver Broncos 35-10 in Denver. Then, in the wee hours of this past Friday morning, Adam “Pacman” Jones was arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct. The third consecutive preseason loss, at home no less, is coming dangerously close to the final nail in the coffin for many of us loyal fans.

The Titans have given us some great things to root for in the not-so-distant past. In addition, they have given us players such as Kevin Carter, Eddie George, and Frank Wychek who embraced Nashville as home and contributed so many positive things to the community. But, this year’s Titans are a different bunch. They have disappointed us both on and off the field.

As a Titans fan, I have a brief and to-the-point message for the front office brass: We can stand the losing for the most part. It’s the tarnishing of our city’s image that is tough to swallow.

    The City Paper’s editorial column today echoes your sentiments, as do I. The Titans have been a bastion of civic pride for a number of years; until recently, we could brag about both the team’s players and their winning record. Now, it seems we can boast of neither. Today’s announcement that Steve Underwood will take the helm as COO is certainly welcome, but with momentum going the way it is, it may take more than a staffing switch to turn the organization around. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
