    They sure could, since a lot of them are going to jump ship once 18 hangs up his cleats. they're gonna need somebody to half-fill that unnecessary stadium.

    Well, I don't know if I'd call it a breakpoint, but I've achieved indifference. I had a friend over last night and instead of making her watch the game with me, we sat, drank a bottle wine and shot the breeze with the game muted on the TV behind us. At one point I turned to see the score 14 - 0 Colts. I laughed and turned the TV off.

    I've watched every single Titans game since 99, with the exception of the game in Miami that was moved up to a Saturday start due to weather concerns (some young hurricane stirring chit up). Since 1975 I've been as passionate a fan of this franchise as any reasonably sane person could be, but for now at least, for whatever reason, that fire is out. And honestly, it sucks... hopefully something will rekindle that passion before long, because it's been a part of who I am for almost as long as I can remember, and it's absence leaves a bit of a void.

    I hear you....I watched this team sporadically when Pastorini and Campbell were playing (St. Louis Cardinal...aka Big Dead fan back then), frequently when Warren Moon was playing (always a huge Moon fan), then always when McNair and Eddie came on board, up until now. I am on the road this week, and had to find an Applebees here in Lexington, KY. that was showing the game. At halftime I considered leaving, but did not.

    I have Sunday Ticket at the house, and have gotten this since moving to Wisconsin in 2005. Every year it has pretty much been automatic (a "no discussion" item with my wife), but I am not so sure about next year.

    As this season has progressed, it has gotten to be more like an "obligation" every Sunday than something I look forward to...and that is sad.

    I am hopeful that, after another offseason (which I call "the Abyss"), I will feel differently, but I will also be paying pretty close attention to how Adams deals with this clusterf..ck. Hopefully common sense prevails.

    You and I are on the same page. This is the first time as a Titans fan I have felt completely numb. Watched every game since Tennessee Oilers days ... this is the bottom of the barrel to me.

    When your team sucks and you know they suck and they have no talent, ok - it is what it is. But this team has TALENT and was 5-2 ... What is it? 5 straight seasons with 5+ losing streaks? It's like torture.

    I was completely numb to the game last night. I was laughing internally.

    I usually watch Titans games with the hair on the back of my neck standing up because I would hang on every play. Now I am just waiting for it to be over ... which sucks, because in the off season I am just waiting for it to begin - which I won't be doing this offseason unless Fisher is gone.

    Fortunes change overnight in the NFL. The Titans should look at bringing in a younger qb and make a few free agent acquisitions. As for Fisher, for the sake of reading this message board I'd be open to the idea of a new coach if only to silence those intolerant of Fisher. I kind of like Fisher. It's so easy to get a poor coach. I read posts by Colts fans that say they would rather have Fisher than Caldwell. Maybe it's a grass is greener kind of thing. This has undoubtedly been a terrible season. Let's not be so quick beautify VY and demonize Fisher. Young had his moments. That's for sure but he proved time and again (in my opinion) he didn't possess the mental fortitude to be a success in the NFL. I view Fishers troubles as a function of VY's dysfunction. For what it's worth I would like to see a more pass heavy offense with a quarterback more in the style of Brady/Manning/Brees/Rivers/Ryan/Flacco/Rogers.

    Dont give that up man. You can still enjoy football.

    I used to watch 2 games every sunday, sometimes 3. I rarely do now because our games suck the life out of me.

    Not anymore though,I'm putting the fun back in football.
