NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Tennessee Titans by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
TENNESSEE TITANS (26)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 31) - Still need Music City Miracle.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 30) - Instead of going forward, this team has taken a step back.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 26)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 27) - Apparently the change from offensive coordinator Chris Palmer to Dowell Loggains wasn't enough to get them over the hump against the Texans.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 26) - Only question now is whether Bud Adams makes sweeping changes in the offseason.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 24) - The Titans rank 31st in the NFL with an average time of possession of barely 27 minutes.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 24) - Looks like that firing of Chris Palmer really shook these guys up.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 26) - Coughing up 30 points per game is no formula for success.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 27) - Firing offensive coordinator Chris Palmer was followed by six sacks and three interceptions. Maybe it wasn't his fault. At this point it doesn't really matter.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 26) - Clearly not ready to compete with the Texans.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 26) - Firing offensive coordinator Chris Palmer didn't pay immediate dividends in last Sunday's 24-10 loss to Houston. If the Titans don't finish strong, expect some other members of the Titans staff to get booted after the season as well.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 27) - OK, so maybe it wasn't all Chris Palmer's fault.
