    The Titans couldn’t get the ball in the end zone on four straight plays inside the one-yard line, and coach Mike Munchak now has a better idea of why the team failed.

    The Chiefs beat the Titans off the football and got too much penetration on a running play up the middle, when Jackie Battle was stuffed for no gain. On second down, Munchak said the Titans had tight end Delanie Walker wide open, but Ryan Fitzpatrick’s pass was batted down. On third down, Fitzpatrick didn’t find an open receiver on a passing play, and was stopped at the one.

    Then on fourth down, Munchak said Battle should have scored on the fourth-and-one.

    “I thought it was blocked well,’’ Munchak said. “We should have scored. … The play wasn’t designed to go up the middle, and that’s where (Battle) ended up going.”

    We need CJ in there to at least let them think we may go with a pitch. Stupid play calling has cost us two games...that and Britt dropping everything with three miles of a stadium.

    No **** Munch. Thanks for the useless info. We all know we should have scored there.

    We have a Captain Obvious coach who still thinks Rob Turner doesn't suck. Frankly, I don't remember seeing good push by any of our line on even one of those 4 plays.

    That revamped interior line is getting so much push up front, let me tell ya.

    Battle needs to JUST RUN THE BALL, instead of trying to get on the Sportscenter Top 10 with a truck and on injured reserve with a concussion.

    Titans should've scored 3 points on 4th down, why would you not take the opportunity to cut it to a one possession game

    I had no issue with going for it, having said that I would have ran the same play twice without huddle. QB sneaked without huddle then ran original play on 4th again without huddle.

    The huddle allowed the D too get reset


    just pick yourselves up and line back up and go again.

    Even though we got stopped short at the goal line, that effort by Battle was still a beauty to watch.
