Give The Titans Coach Another Year - 12/30/13

  I'm not a sportscaster and don't play one on tv.  I'm just a guy who follows the Titans, follows them on tv and radio and goes to an occasional game in person.  Another season has come and gone and once more the Titans aren't in the playoffs.
  No matter where you come down on what happened this year, I think we can agree the Titans were better, competitive and in virtually every game.  I didn't see anyone giving up or throwing in the towel.  I think head coach Mike Munchak deserves another year.  His first year was a mess not of his making.  Jeff Fisher departed late, leaving Munchak little to choose from when putting together a staff.  Last year the team started the season with an aging veteran quarterback with the idea of handing Jake Locker the keys a few games in.  Locker showed signs of steady growth but got hurt and was on the sidelines.  
  I think the Titans made a lot of positive moves last off season to make this team better.  If Locker or even number two signal calle,r Ryan Fitzpatrick, is under center all sixteen games, I think the Titans would have had a winning record and possibly make the playoffs. 
  The Titans need to continue making roster moves to improve the on-field product.  The quarterback position is so important and the Titans have been nothing but inconsistent there. 
  I say give Munchak another year.  Fans can hope Locker is the answer and that he can stay on the field for something closer to sixteen games.  Beyond that, I say ask Chris Johnson to take a pay cut to something closer to what his on-field production merits and use that money to hire a pass rusher or two. 
  This team is closer to the playoffs than I think some fans want to give it credit for.  It's worth another year before blowing up this coaching staff.  One man's opinion.  It will be interesting to see how Titans brass sees it.

GIANT EARTHWORMS RETURN

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- Giant worms! No, we're not talking about a summer horror flick but the result of spring showers. Rare, giant earthworms are appearing on the Palouse Prairie in Idaho. Worm lover Cass Davis tells the Lewiston Tribune he found three foot-long worms while hiking last weekend. He thinks they're giant Palouse earthworms, which can grow up to a yard long. The worms were believed to have been extinct until a researcher found one a decade ago.

SEX FOR DRUG TESTS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- It's a case involving sex and drugs -- but with a twist. Now a lab tech is going to prison. Prosecutors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, say Jayson Bice offered to fix women's drug tests in exchange for sex. He's been sentenced to six years. A jury earlier convicted Bice of extortion and accepting a bribe. He pleaded guilty in April to two other extortion counts.

HOUSTON GORILLAS

HOUSTON (AP) -- It's a $28 million dream home. But the residents are just a bunch of big apes. The Houston Zoo is showing off its new gorilla quarters. Seven of the endangered primates now live in the new state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor exhibit. A family of three of those gorillas are transplants from the Bronx Zoo in New York. It took Houston Zoo officials four years of fundraising and construction to make the gorilla home a reality.

WATER USE APP

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- Some California school kids are turning high-tech entrepreneurs. Five Riverview Elementary School students in Fresno have come up with an idea for an app to monitor water use. The state is in the grip of a record drought. The Fresno Bee reports the kids presented their idea to officials in March. Now, the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and businesses including AT&T are kicking in more than 50,000 bucks to develop the app. It will be free and should be available for download by the time school starts in the fall.
