Titans give fans silent treatment

Maybe the Tennessee Titans have a plan.

But it appears to me that they more likely have their head in the sand.

At 6-10, the Titans need to be making major changes.

And there have been reports of moves being made, though the Titans have yet to acknowledge anything in that regard.

Mike Reinfeldt was fired the day after the season after approximately one year as chief operating officer.

The Titans were silent. No official statement. No email. No nothing. The only acknowledgment was when Coach Mike Munchak spoke about the move at his season-ending press conference. It's a good thing he did. Otherwise, Reinfeldt might still showing up for work every day not knowing he had been fired, somewhat similar to George Costanza.

In the days that followed, the Titans let go of running backs coach Jim Skipper, tight ends coach John Zernhelt and linebackers coach Frank Bush as well.

And from Baptist Sports Park …. tumbleweeds.

On Friday, the Titans dismissed long-time special teams coach Alan Lowry.
This isn't just any special teams coach. This is the man who authored the greatest play in franchise history – the Music City Miracle, which propelled the team to its only Super Bowl appearance. Lowry had spent 17 years in the organization before being shown the door Friday.

And what lies atop the Titans official website – an announcement that women's soccer is coming to LP Field next month. Whoopee!

The only thing I can figure out as to why the Titans have clammed up with so much going on in and around them is that perhaps the media relations and PR people were dismissed too, and it just hasn't been reported yet.

I'll check into it.
