Many were surprised that the Tennessee Titans retained Mike Munchak after a poor 2012 campaign, but the Titans decided not to let go of the inexperienced head coach.

Unfortunately for the third-year head coach, he’s not likely to be manning the sidelines in Tennessee once the 2014 season rolls around. The Titans went 6-10 in 2012, and they are poised for another miserable campaign in 2013.

The Titans managed to steal six games, but none came against a team with a winning record. The Titans beat the Jaguars, Steelers, Jets, Dolphins, Bills and Lions in 2012, and four of those wins came by four points or less.

Those tight wins aren’t going to come often in 2013. The Titans have to play the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans (twice), Indianapolis Colts (twice), San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams, in addition to solid teams like the Steelers and Cardinals.

With one of the league’s worst starting quarterbacks in Jake Locker and a poor defense, Munchak isn’t going to get bailed out by his players. The Titans will have to pull off some upsets to help Munchak keep his job, and even if they do that, he’s likely to be out of work soon after the season ends.
