    MINNEAPOLIS Trailing the Vikings 30-7 with less than two minutes to play in the game, the Titans used three consecutive timeouts. The Titans wound up getting one final possession, but didn’t advance past the Minnesota 45 on six plays.

    “We might as well use them,” coach Mike Munchak said. “Get the guys in the game, finish the game the right way. I hate to watch a game finish with kneel-downs.

    “We had three timeouts. We were hoping to get a score on that, so I thought let’s not get rusty. Let them play a little bit. Let’s run the ball a little bit. There’s still a couple of minutes to go.”

    He could have just let us go out with a little dignity.... Why the hell do you call timeout when you have no chance of winning? Just end it....

    Munch would be plain flavorless room temperature oatmeal.

    You have to crack the skin with your spoon before eating the cold, gel-like goop.

    If Munch was just some guy, I would have no doubt in my mind he would be canned at season end. But because he is a HoFer, and was such a big part of this franchise, I bet Bud gives him another year.

    I'm sorry, but I'm ready to scrap the whole team. When you get worse every year, it's time to start over. Bud, please sell the team. New owner, please hire the best GM and best coaches you can find, preferably not from the arena league. Trade every player you can get draft picks for and let's start over. Please.
