Monday a lot of that discussion centered around what the Titans should do with head coach Mike Munchak.
"I think he needs to go, all the way from the top and completely rebuild the whole franchise," said fan Jonathan Griffin. "It was just one of those seasons I hope to forget."
Griffin is among those who hoped to see the coach dismissed.
Chase Moore felt owner Bud Adams did the right thing in firing Executive Vice-President Mike Reinfeldt instead.
"Team and organization as stagnant as the Titans are any change will presumably be an improvement over the status quo," said Moore.
The status quo hasn't been all that profitable for karla and Charlie Greer this year.

Miss. chooses new firm to run Woodville prison
May 18, 2013 20:50 GMT
WOODVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi officials have picked a new company to run the Wilkinson County Correctional Facility.
Utah-based Management and Training Corp. announced Friday that the Mississippi Department of Corrections has chosen it to run the 1,000-bed prison starting July 1, the Natchez Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/10MvOGv).
Corrections Corporation of America, based in Nashville, Tenn., had run the prison since 1998. MTC says it will keep "the vast majority" of employees.
MTC will get a five-year contract to run the prison with two one-year options. Last year, officials chose MTC to take over East Mississippi Correctional Facility, the Walnut Grove Correctional Facility and the Marshall County Correctional Facility from the GEO Group. MTC won 10-year contracts for each.
CCA still runs the Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility and the Adams County Correctional Center in Mississippi.
