A week ago, Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak lit his proverbial seat on fire by admitting the Titans were short-handed on a pair of key plays.

This week, his team helped take a blow torch to that same chair.

Today's article of the day comes from Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, who details Titans owner Bud Adam's displeasure in regards to a 51-20 drubbing at the hands of the Chicago Bears.

Wyatt reports Adams left the game early, outraged at the embarrassing performance by his team.

When the owner leaves a game early, it's not a good sign.

Munchak's tenure in Nashville may not last much longer at this rate, and if Adams does take drastic action, it would be difficult to blame him.

Regardless of whether all the problems facing the Titans are Munchak's fault, there's no question the team has played undisciplined, sloppy football. Those are characteristics that often bring swift, sure retribution in the NFL

With a bye week scheduled after Week 10, changes could be coming soon for Tennessee.
