??AP Pro32 comments about Titans??
NEW YORK -- Comments on the Tennessee Titans by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
TENNESSEE TITANS (30)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 30) -- Doesn't look good.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 30) -- Not much to hang their hats on offensively, which is not good.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 30)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 29) -- Chris Johnson should stop talking and start producing.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 29) -- Looking like a lost year.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 31) -- Opposing quarterbacks are completing almost 75 percent of their passes against the Titans. That's not a recipe for success in a passing league.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 29) -- Jake Locker is hurt. The defense can't stop anyone. And there's an APB on Chris Johnson. That's not how you win, and the Titans are proving it.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 31) -- When Jeff Fisher departed Nashville, he took any semblance of defense with him.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 29) -- They look nothing like the team that went 9-7 last year. Chris Johnson needs to be benched before it gets any worse. I thought Matt Hasselbeck would stabilize the offense, but it may be too far gone.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 32) -- Manhandled again! This time against the Vikings. Chris Johnson said it best, "We don't look like a good team. I don't believe we're close right now." Neither do we Chris.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 31) -- Foundering running back Chris Johnson isn't the only one who should be feeling the heat for a 1-4 record.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 30) -- In each of their four losses they have been outscored by at least 21 points.
