NFL: Titans Coach Mike Munchack Not Concerned About Job Security

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak isn't concerned about his job security in spite of the team having a 5-8 record.

Job security is apparently not the first thing in Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak's mind.

According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennesseean, Munchak "feels the Titans are headed in the right direction." The head coach will use the outcome of the seaon's final three games as leverage when he meets with management concerning his job.   

However, Wyatt argues a potential three-game winning streak -- something Tennessee has done just once under Munchak -- may not be enough to state the Titans mentor's case. The team got off to a 3-1 start before going 2-7 in its last nine. 

That brings Munchak's overall head coaching record in Nashville to 20-25 (.444).

In spite of this, he remains unfazed when he spoke with Wyatt.

"We have three games to go. We have a lot of football to play, so that is not a concern right now. Once we play our last game, we'll have an opportunity to speak on how we go forward as a football team like I did last year and the year before that.

"I've had the same discussion when the season ends and I'm assuming I'll have that same discussion when the season ends.

"I'll have a chance to talk to everybody then and say 'Here's what happened. Here's how we go forward. Here's the plan' And then a decision is made and we'll move forward.

"I think we have to be 8-8. I am not worried about my job for 8-8, but we need to be 8-8. We have worked too hard. At this point that's the best we can do. 

"So that's what our goal is, to win these three games...it is not about to save this, to save that, it's about going forward for next year." 

On the other hand, NFL.com's Marc Sessler cites his colleague, NFL media columnist Adam Silver, in his Dec. 8 update. Silver quipped on NFL Network's GameDay First that there is "a lot of dissatisfaction" within the Titans organization which may result in Munchak not coaching the team beyond 2013.

In his Dec. 10 article, Sessler emphasizes Munchak's inability to beat teams in the Titans' division, the AFC South, including the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans. Tennessee has gone a paltry 1-10 in its last 11 games against AFC South foes. 

As such, Munchak's fate hangs very much in the balance. 

Whatever the case may be, Silver also reports running back Chris Johnson (who will be paid $8 million in 2014) won't be returning for the Titans next season. He also adds Tennessee is also seriously considering would-be free agent quarterback Jay Cutler, per Sessler. 

This is because the team isn't inclined to pick up the $13 million option on injured quarterback Jake Locker, according to the same article.

Bell, Blount Prove Why They're the Perfect 1-2 Combo for the Pittsburgh Steelers

Sep 21 2014 11:34pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The pass-heavy Pittsburgh Steelers faltered in Week 2 against the rival Baltimore Ravens. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger passed the ball 37 times compared to a combined 18 Steelers rushes, and the 26-6 loss had that run-pass imbalance partially to blame. The key seemed clear: Run the ball more behind backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount. On Sunday night, they did just that, and the outcome was far different from Week 2—a 37-19 road rout of the Carolina Panthers.  Running well isn't ...

Titans vs. Chiefs 2014 game preview: Kansas City defense hoping to get off on the right foot

With last season's playoff nightmare still visible in their rearview, the Chiefs are looking to start a more successful postseason march against a new-look Tennessee team. The last time the Kansas City Chiefs walked off of a meaningful football field, their vaunted defense had just allowed the Indianapolis Colts to storm back from a 28-point deficit and pull off the second largest comeback in NFL postseason history. Needless to say, they'll be ...
