Mike Munchak just called a screen pass on third and long by selecting Chris Palmer as the Titans new offensive coordinator. It’s the type of call that usually fails to pick up a first down but occasionally works. It’s usually a safe call, one that may not gain any yardage but at least it’s not as risky as throwing the ball downfield into double coverage.
Translation: the Titans offense probably won’t get any better but there’s not much risk it will get worse either.
The 61-year old Palmer is probably best known to Titans fans as the offensive coordinator for the Jaguars (1997-98) and for the expansion Texans (2001-05). He was also the head coach of the expansion Browns (1999-2000) and was once the wide receivers coach for the Oilers (1990-92).
I am completely underwhelmed. Munch fired Dinger to make this move?
