As the season wore on and the Titans continued to struggle and it appeared that coach Mike Munchak was in danger of losing his job, you didn't hear much about the so-called locker-room cancers that might have affected the team mentality.

Now that Munchak has been fired, tight end Delanie Walker feels like the tale can be told. There were cancers, he said, and there were six of them.

"When we started losing more games, we got to see it more and more, it was just like it was falling apart," Walker told the Midday 180 in Nashville, via ESPN.com. "And the players that were the cancer were dragging other players into that box with them, and the box was getting bigger and bigger. At first, it was just a small box. The box just got bigger and bigger.

"Everybody [saw] it. So I feel like these coaches are going to come in, they're going to watch film and they're going to see. They're going to see what type of players that want to be here and don't want to be here, and he's going to get rid of them."

In those last two sentences, Walker is referring to new coach Ken Whisenhunt and his staff.
