Keith Carter needs to be fired

So, we’ve addressed the need for a quarterback change and the awful offensive line play, but we’ve yet to place blame on the coaches. Well, sorry to say, but someone should lose their job over this historically bad offense.

Firing offensive line coach Keith Carter is the easiest decision to make. It’s a no-brainer after the Titans saw their worst offensive line performance of the season, which is hard to accomplish considering Tennessee had allowed an astounding 22 sacks in five games.

In game No. 6, the Titans allowed seven sacks. Adding insult to injury, that’s two more sacks than the Broncos had through the first five games combined, and they were without one of their top pass-rushers.

Not only is this offensive line not getting better, it’s actually getting worse. Head coach Mike Vrabel gave Carter a vote of confidence after the Week 5 loss, and that vote of confidence looks to be yet another example of poor judgement by him.

There are no excuses left, and the results speak volumes. Carter must go.
