Rhonda and Kevin Lawrence have had season tickets for the Titans since their start in Tennessee and couldn't help but notice all the empty seats around them in the upper deck at LP Field.

She said she wants her Titans back.

The Titans are just as eager to get their fans to return.

The team invited season ticket holders to lunch and dinner Tuesday, showing off new coach Ken Whisenhunt as part of fan outreach for a franchise that has sold out 15 straight seasons.

President and CEO Tommy Smith and members of the Adams' family flew in from Houston for lunch to help make it clear that the status quo is unacceptable for the Titans.

Whisenhunt said Tuesday night he has seen Nashville get behind the Titans and wants that home-field advantage back.
