|Will closing practices to the media help Mike Munchak and the Titans improve on last season's 6-10 mark?|
Keep in mind, the Titans have not had a player earn a Pro Bowl invitation in two years. They have not played on Sunday Night Football (the league’s showcase broadcast) since 2009 and for the second time in three years they have been left out of the Monday Night Football package.
