NEW YORK (AP) — Comments on the Tennessee Titans by the AP Pro32 panel
(ranking in parentheses):

___

TENNESSEE TITANS (26)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 31) — Still need Music City Miracle.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 30) — Instead of going forward, this
team has taken a step back.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 26)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 27) — Apparently the
change from offensive coordinator Chris Palmer to Dowell Loggains
wasn't enough to get them over the hump against the Texans.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 26) — Only question now is whether Bud Adams
makes sweeping changes in the offseason.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 24) — The Titans rank 31st in the
NFL with an average time of possession of barely 27 minutes.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 24) — Looks like that firing of Chris
Palmer really shook these guys up.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 26) — Coughing up 30 points per game is no
formula for success.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 27) — Firing offensive
coordinator Chris Palmer was followed by six sacks and three
interceptions. Maybe it wasn't his fault. At this point it doesn't
really matter.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 26) — Clearly not ready to compete with the
Texans.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 26) — Firing offensive coordinator Chris
Palmer didn't pay immediate dividends in last Sunday's 24-10 loss to
Houston. If the Titans don't finish strong, expect some other members
of the Titans staff to get booted after the season as well.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 27) — OK, so maybe it wasn't all Chris
Palmer's fault.
