Am I the only one that thinks our passing game will be better?

    Yes you are. Fitz put up the majority of his good numbers at the end of blowout games when teams were basically done with the Bills. He will probably get killed in this weeks game and we will be stuck playing Rusty - who will then become the best backup ever according to you guys. The big thing that the Titans are going to miss is jake's leadership. Did you see the whole team come out to check on him? That is not happening with just any player. Jake has become the leader of this team and he is looking like a pretty decent QB. Hopefully Fitz can keep us in the playoff hunt until Jake comes back.

    People always get carried away whether it's extremely negative or positive. Jake was looking good vs the Jets D but the 3 touchdowns we had were all after Jets turnovers with position on their side of the field at their 46, 26 and 18 yard line. Is it really unreasonable to expect a pretty good backup to score if his defense is giving him fantastic field position more often than not.

    I wish this was true, but I doubt the line magically starts pass protecting better for Fitz than it did for Locker.

    Nah man, I used to trust you for information when I would read something here. Now I know you are just a lying unreliable hack poster.

    I don't think it will be better. We might have more yards per game but also more turnovers. Jake was really clicking with our WRs. Nate and Hunter especially. I think Fitz can get it done though. Our WRs are too good for him not to do good.

    Maybe even Britt can come out from under his rock.

    I love how you capped the "TEAM", the thing is even though football is a TEAM sport, some positions make all the difference in the world. If this was a CB you can scheme away from, yes I would agree with you. If this was a RB you can scheme away from, yes I would agree. However, a QB touches the ball EVERY SINGLE OFFENSIVE PLAY. Losing a QB the team started to rally around will hurt. Does it mean it can't be done? Absolutely not. The Steelers a couple of years back started five games with out Big Ben and still ended up being 4-2 or 5-1 or something like that.

    However, let's be real that's an exception case and probably not the rule. I think you guys are nuts if you think putting Fitz in won't impact the team. Am I'm hopeful he can keep it going? HELL YEAH I'm a die hard fan. I wish any body in two tone blue the best. No one knows how these things turn out so we all mind as well wait and see how we match up against the Chiefs. Bottom line this blows either way!!!

    I definitely hope they get serious fines though...I agree with Munchak, those hits definitely wasn't called for.

    I don't anticipate the passing game to be better, but you're definitely not alone in thinking there will not be a downgrade. I don't think Fitz is as bad as most people think, he's gonna raise a few eyebrows over the next month or so.

    I don't mind Locker and he's showing signs of improvement, but he's still far from great.

    Oh no doubt. It's Jake's team. Not saying otherwise.

    Not really, not a big Fitz fan. We can still win with him but I think our passing game will suffer.
