    For all those thinking preseason means jack just let me just say this, in 2010 I KNEW with all my heart after watching 3 Packers games that they would be representing the NFC in the Super Bowl, I absolutely knew it and I'm not just saying that.

    That was long before they began their streak of dominance, long before anyone thought Rodgers was the top QB in football. And I only felt that way because of what I saw during preseason.

    It may seem like I'm pulling excuses out of my butt, but last year Hasselbeck had half a training camp, it was a new scheme, new team, and we had a limited time to install our offense. I mean week-1 was sprung on us so soon we simply weren't ready.

    It would be a major mistake on your part to compare last years week-1 team to this years team.

    Oh yea, and the Giants also lost week-1, to the Redskins, and they much like the Jaguars, suck! Point is, teams evolve over the coarse of the season. And our team has come a long ways since September 2011.

    I called the Bucs superbowl, and said it would not even be close.

    Yeah every team went through the lockout as well and other teams went through coaching changes, we're not special.

    It's also a mistake to compare a 2 time super bowl champion team to a team that went 8-8 and gave the Colts their first win, just saying. The Titans will keep it close but I'm not chugging the Kool Aid just yet.

    Whos comparing the 2011-2012 Titans to Green Bay? Not me. All I said was you can tell early who's gonna be great.

    But just so you know, even Sterling Sharpe believes in us, he said "don't think Tennessee can't beat New England, they definitely can".

    If we knock New England in the mouth how we did Baltimore week-2 last year, we should win.

    And we really did have a unique situation last year. What other team had a new QB and new head coach? Just too many new changes to be able to compete for a title. But now we're sitting in a nice spot to make a run.

    we are better than last year for sure, but we still dont have the key things in place to win a SB.

    We have our starting QB but he is still unproven. We are still weak at WR with Britt out and Wright a rookie.

    Defense is further ahead than our offense , we have some good players who have a year or so behind them. It'll be another year or so before this team is ready for the playoffs.

    But thats not to say we cant have some luck on our side this season. Thats why im pulling for some crazy stuff to happen this season in our favor.
