It’s black Monday in the NFL, and the Titans are among the teams that will look to make changes. Already the club will look to talk to possible head coaches, but today the team announced that GM Ruston Webster won’t be back next season.

The team also announced that Steve Underwood has been permanently promoted to President and CEO.

Owner Amy Adams Strunk put out the following statement on the moves:

“Today, I am glad to announce that Steve Underwood will be continuing in his role as our president and chief executive officer on a permanent basis,” said Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk. “I have had ongoing discussions with Steve on this issue for a while, and I feel his leadership is vital in order to move us forward. He has brought much-needed stability to our organization, and I look forward to progress that will be made under his leadership.

“Additionally, I would like to thank Ruston Webster for all of his efforts with our franchise, as he is a man of great character and integrity and someone for whom we I have tremendous respect. Our mission is to become one of the elite franchises in the National Football League, and we have fallen short of this goal in recent years. We are in the search process for our head coaching and general manager positions. We share our fans’ frustration about the team’s recent performance, and we are committed to doing everything we can to return our team to a perennial postseason contender.”

    Look out football, here we come,
    Tennessee Titans, Number 31.

    Tennessee has the Titans, the suckiest football team.
    We stumble the ball from 30 to 30 like no one’s ever seen.
    We’re in the air, we’re on the ground – always unsuccessful,
    And when you say the Titans, you’re talking top draft pick.

    ‘Cause we’re the Tennessee Titans, Tennessee Titans,
    Tennessee Titans, Number 31.
    Yes, we’re the Tennessee Titans, Tennessee Titans,
    Tennessee Titans, Number 31.

    We’ve got no offense, we’ve got no defense,
    We give our few fans no hope.
    ‘Cause we’re the Tennessee Titans, Tennessee Titans,
    You know we’re gonna smoke the dope.

    Yes, we’re the Tennessee Titans, Tennessee Titans,
    Tennessee Titans, Number 31.
    Yes, we’re the Tennessee Titans, Tennessee Titans,
    Tennessee Titans, Number 31.

    ‘Cause we’re the Tennessee Titans, Tennessee Titans,
    Tennessee Titans, Number One – Five – Seven – Eight,
    We’re the disgrace of the Volunteer State!
    Tennessee Titans, Tennessee Titans,
    Tennessee Titans, Number 31.

      That’s giving them too much credit. There are 32 teams in the NFL, and the Titans are the pits. Plus Alabama and Clemson are probably better than they are, too. So it’s more like Number 34 than Number 31.

      Give Butch Jones another year or two and the Titans will only be the second-best team in Tennessee.

    Elite franchises in the NFL? We’d settle for them just being a legitimate NFL team.

    Congratulations on hiring a retread coach! You can take the Oilers out of Houston, but you can never take the Oilers out of the Titans!
