As each season approaches, negativity seems to follow the Tennessee Titans.
No matter what changes are made at head coach, quarterback or any key area, the same old Titans are a lock to show up.
Tennessee surprised fans and analysts alike with a stellar 13-3 season in 2008, then they fell back into mediocrity.
Whether it was poor personnel decisions not fit for the future, the curse of the Terrible Towel, or a combination, the Titans have hung around between the 6-10 and 9-7 records ever since.
So this season, with a clear vision, a better coaching staff and a reloaded roster, why is Tennessee a favorite to take a step back in 2014?
The only answer I can muster is that it is pretty much the Titans way to do things. That mindset has to change and Whisenhunt has the tools to transition into a successful franchise once again.
We’ll see soon enough if Jake Locker and Co. can make a group of pessimists optimistic about the team’s future in Tennessee.
