Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans…

In impressively-produced events for season ticket holders, Ken Whisenhunt took questions. It was another piece to a media blitz that appears to have two goals: Introducing the new Titans coach to a wide audience and reinvigorating a fan base, says John Glennon of The Tennessean.

To which I say: These are the sorts of events that are a smart investment that will pay dividends beyond the expense of putting them together.

President and CEO Tommy Smith told us on The Midday 180 that the status quo is unacceptable. “This is a new day for the Titans. We're breaking eggs, we're making omelets, we understand what's expected of us and we're going to work constantly, relentlessly at this."

Smith offered a strong endorsement of Jake Locker to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Whisenhunt knows first-hand how hard it can be to play at LP Field when it’s full and loud, said Teresa Walker of AP.

Whisenhunt plans to run the team-sponsored 5K this summer. David Boclair of the Nashville Post says it shows just how the coach is generating excitement and has hit the ground running.
