    Nope. We've played the Titans so rarely that I know little about the team other than they have potentially the best RB in the league.

    "It sucks"

    But seriously... they got lucky TWICE, beat us in Nashville when we had home-field advantage TWICE, preventing us from our Super Bowl run TWICE.

    They also have a murderer on their team. If he was in prison where he belongs, we'd have two rings.

    And yes, I loved the Cundiff miss. I was a belligerent drunk at a bar... Believe it or not, there were a ton of Ravens fans. I was loving that moment and being as mean as possible to all of them.


    Almost forgot to mention that I've been a lifetime season ticket holder and I was at both playoff losses to the Ravens as well as the Super Bowl. I was so young when we played in the Super Bowl that I didn't care as much. The Ravens' losses were, in their own way, worse. We were going all the way both times. No doubt in my mind.

    That game had 7 Titans turnovers IIRC though. It seemed to me that that team had absolutely completely given up. They even made Lawrence Maroney look good. :shocked: If there are any players left from that team, I imagine they're still plenty pissed about it as well.

    Step one: Must get a pass rush early, very early, enough to make them rethink their vertical game

    Step two: LB's (especially spoon) needs to not get eaten up by the TE's when they switch to a quick drop and quick passes to avoid the pass rush

    Step three: The "hot" Locker shows up on Sunday, and not the cold one. Were going to need better than 50% completion from him and our WR's


    We miss any one of those, and were toast. Were going to need a good team performance, from everyone, to beat the Pats.

    I object to this list. Jason McCourty should be listed numero uno!

    We don't have two players who I think can stop Gronk. Mediocre TEs have always killed us...especially if we go into that "keep them in front if us" zone D. These TEs will go nuts.

    Hope I am surprised....hop we just hang close and come out without injuries.

    Unless you break his ankle, there's no "stopping Gronk". He could be slowed down, and to do that we'll need McCarthy & Co. to step up and want to beat his azz. Gronk is a special talent, however anybody can be slowed down if you make it a point to knock their heads off.

    Nooo, we stop mediocre TE's.

    Greg Olson is a mediocre TE, and we stopped him last year. He had a few catches, but he was target a lot.
