NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Mike Munchak has been in the NFL long enough to know that five wins in a season isn't good enough.
The Tennessee coach's challenge will be convincing owner Bud Adams, his boss for 30 seasons as a player and coach, that he needs more time to turn the Tennessee Titans back into winners.
Munchak is only the seventh Hall of Fame player to be an NFL head coach since the 1970 merger. He wraps up his second season Sunday against Jacksonville (2-13) with 15 players on injured reserve, including four of his starting offensive linemen out for the final month.
He says he feels good that a lot of things with the Titans (5-10) can be fixed really quickly, but not in less than two years.
