    Losing Pacman in itself puts us in the running for worst off-season. Add in the losses of T.Henry, D.Bennett, and B.Wade, and the lack of big name FA signings given the money we had to spend, it is very easy to see why people are saying we had the worst off season.

    We can argue that we need to see how our FA's and rookies perform first, but every team has FA's and rookies coming in, so every team can say that same thing. Bottom line is we did not get better with all the player losses, in particular Pacman and T.Henry. I don't think any Titans fan is thrilled with how this off-season has gone.

    All that being said, this guy is still underestimating our team if he thinks 6 wins is a ceiling for us. This team will go at least 8-8. Mark it down.

    Clutch QB who makes plays when game is on the line, solid special teams, solid O-line, improved defense (can't get worse, right?) especially d-line if our guys stay healthy, young hungry RB's (put down the cheeseburger, Lendale, I meant hungry to win!).

    Vince has never had a losing season, and I don't expect him to this year either.

    Let's remember Vince Young is on the cover of Madden 08. That will play a role in our season. I don't believe in ghosts or curses, but this thing hasn't missed in about eight years. The Vince Young Madden cover makes this our wosrt season. I'm glad we signed Tim Rattay. We will need him.

    There is no Madden curse. It's missed plenty in the last 8 years. Eddie George for example. He played fine that year, except for one memorable play.

    Not that it matters...Vince is immune to curses. Curses that contain Vince Young's name destroy the people who utter them. The real version of Vince can do things the video game version can't. Madden doesn't have a speed rating high enough to account for Young.

    Upon further review, Eddie had his best season when he was on the cover, which was the last time a Titan graced the cover. Titans are immune to Madden curses.

    It's not easy to think long term, since we haven't been anywhere in a while, but I am really optimisitic we are building a team that will endure for a while. We have some good veterans, and some promising guys got playing time under their belt last year. If we can just get some production from our draft picks, we could be looking good for several years.

    Exactly.

    That, by itself, probably makes the Titans 5-11 last season.
