Tennessee Titans have been a poor football team for a quite a while now. The Titans have not made the playoffs in the last six NFL seasons and they also haven’t won a playoff game for 13 years.
Former star for the Titans, Eddie George, certainly did not have to endure such barren spells when he was a key cog in the Tennessee machine. Back in those days, George and the Titans managed to make the playoffs four times in eight seasons.
Speaking about the state of the Titans franchise this week, George did not hold back on what he sees are the problems that Tennessee currently have.
Titans in disarray
The former star running back explained how he “would love to own” the Titans, and more explosively, he said that he thinks the Titans are currently in disarray and are badly managed from the top.
"(Titans management) has been in such dysfunction and disarray. Right now, they're putting out a bad product,” George explained, according to NFL.com.
“Talking to the fans, who are knowledgeable around here, they are upset. They've seen in the past what it takes to win championships. It takes playing for more than yourself. That has to be communicated from the top down, not just from the coaches and in the locker rooms, but from the ownership and management."
What the Titans need to do
George’s words are certainly quite explosive and you cannot really argue that they don’t have some merit. But rather than just simply criticizing his former team, he also offered some key advice for the Titans going forward.
"I think once they get their house in order, decide on a mission statement of who they want to be, then you can find the right leaders from your coaches on down to extend that culture. After that, championships can happen."
