    Honestly, I hope you are right. I would gladly eat tons of crow in exchange for an elite team. I just don't see it happening. IMO I'm seeing a lot of unfounded/blind optimism and rationalizing from Titans fans since Munch took over (And I'll admit I'm probably just as bad, but from the other side). Because fans WANT to believe we're on the right track. Believe me, it really really sucks to admit that the team you love and dedicate so much of your life to is an absolute disaster with no hope in sight.

    I think the one thing we can all agree on, is that we're sick of the losing and the mediocrity. I hope I'm wrong about all this. But I've been a fan of this team long enough to know better than to subscribe to blind optimism anymore. They're going to have to actually DO SOMETHING to warrant receiving my hard-earned money from now on.

    Couldn't have said it much better. I don't think Munch is the right guy, nor are the guys he's gone blue in the face defending. Like you I'd love to be wrong but I just don't see it. Be careful about saying the organization has to earn your financial commitment. That gets you called a fake fan in this place.

    Oh believe me, I'm well aware. Good thing I don't give two sh**s what some stranger on a forum thinks about my fanhood. I actually think it's funny that so many people find it necessary to constantly pass judgment who qualifies as a "real fan".

    I think the biggest difference is you (and many others) are giving up hope. Logically, I cant do that until year 3 considering when we first got rid of Fisher, I said to everyone I knew that we would not know if its a good move for 3 years. Thats before he picked up dumb and dumber! (Palmer/Gray)

    I am not pleased with Locker, however when I evaluate this team objectivity, I look at where we are as a whole. Like it or not,l we are not very talented but imo, thats what we are building right now.

    I also do NOT expect us to be elite status next year, I think "our time", if everything works out is not next year, but the year after. Not sure we will even be "elite" but it would be nice to show up to our games and be in playoff contention every season.

    I could get into a long post of optimism but there are too many "what ifs" involved (like how good will Locker be), so I, unfortunately, will have to wait until next season before I can say definitively what I think is the best direction. We are in a 'wait and see' stage.

    Irriated fans will say "i dont want to wait and see, look at the Colts, look at the Redskins." My reply.... Every season, teams surprise us and look amazing, then fall off the next year.I could point out many examples but thats not really the point.

    If people dont want to spend money on them? Dont. I know i would not buy tickets if I had the extra money.

    We are all fans (except dcb). We just have different opinions on what will help the team most.

    ^^^ Talking about the draft pick thing that gets you called a fake fan if you hope you end up with a higher draft pick instead of a win against the Jags.

    I have a feeling that we won't sell out many games next year because of these decisions by our front office. And the games that we DO end up getting a good crowd for will just be like the Steelers/Bears/etc. games where half of the stadium was visiting fans. SAD :facepalm:

    Only if there is a surefire coach you want as replacement available. Otherwise, no. You give him one more year.
