Mike Munchak is 14-16 over his first 30 games as coach of the Titans
Mike Munchak could have very well saved his job for next season with this win.
The Titans were lacking a signature win outside of the Pittsburgh Steelers game this season. They needed another one to give Bud Adams a reason to stick with him and show patience.
With this big win on Monday Night Football in what was a gritty football game, you have to think about maybe sticking with him for another season.
It may have come against a bad Jets team, but a win on Monday Night Football is always a huge boost for an organization.
If the Titans would have been embarrassed on the national stage, then it would have been hard to consider keeping Munchak around.
Munchak probably bought himself another season to get the Titans moving back in the right direction that fans are yearning for.
