The Tennessee Titans received a beatdown at the hands of the Green Bay Packers Sunday at Lambeau Field, 55-7, which likely ruined Christmas for Titans fans around the globe.
Such an embarrassment of epic proportions was perfectly summed up by a lone Titans fan who was actually fortunate enough to witness the travesty in person:
At this time of year, all NFL fans want is a victory from their favorite teams. If that cannot happen, at least being competitive in a loss should be enough. This especially goes for a 5-10 team team like the Titans.
Suffice it to say, losing by 48 points two days before Christmas is not exactly winning fans over.
Fans were not the only people disappointed by the performance from the Titans. Offensive tackle Michael Roos was not thrilled about how his team played, as he let the world know via Twitter:
Disgusted. Embarrassed. Pissed. Not enough adjectives to describe how crappy that was. Apologies to Titans fans— Michael Roos (@MichaelRoos) December 23, 2012
Roos is likely one of only a few players that are actually disappointed by the perfornmance, at least if you take into account the overall effort and body language of the team on the field. Nate Dunlevy of Bleacher Report illustrated this perfectly via Twitter as well:

The Titans appeared to throw in the towel early against one of the NFL's best, which is not at all surprising. Jake Locker threw for just 140 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He also managed to be the team's leading rusher with 32 yards on the ground.
Tennessee did not seem to field a defense, at all, as Aaron Rodgers threw for 342 yards and three scores and helped his team covert 28 first downs to the Titans 10.
The Titans embarrassed themselves Sunday, which in turn embarrassed their fans like the one above. It's a safe bet that the Packers faithful were actually consoling the guy rather than heckling him.
At this point, that is the best anyone can do for Titans fans. Their favorite team just suffered one of the worst defeats in recent history, and it happened right in time for the holidays.
So, NFL fans, next time you think you have it bad as a fan, remember Nov. 23. Then, look up a picture of this guy.
You have no idea what rock bottom as an NFL fan feels like unless you're a Titans fan around Christmas.
