    Yeah, just too bad it doesn't matter if you hold a playoff spot in week 11. We will still have 6 games left to play (IND, HOU, JAX, DEN, OAK, ARI). No way we make it 9 wins. I can't blame you for holding out hope though. But I've learned my lesson.

    You guys were the one expecting us to blow out Jacksonville, and acting like we couldn't lose the game. I saw that coming after watching Munchak's teams over the years.

    I bet you 9-7 will get a wildcard, since we hold the tiebreaker over the Jets and Chargers. We have 4 wins. Win against: Indy, Houston, Oakland, Jacksonville, Arizona and we have our 9 wins. Sweep the Colts (Which we almost did last year, and we sucked last year) and we have 10 wins.

    Imagine if we blew the game against the Rams, but beat the Jags instead. Our record would be exactly the SAME as it is now, but I bet you guys would have a lot more optimism. It doesn't matter that we lost to Jacksonville.. a loss is a loss. We're 4-5 with an easy schedule remaining. As long as we split Indy and win the games we are supposed to, we make the playoffs at 9-7 with our tiebreakers.

    Actually, Sawdust, myself and maybe one other called it a barely win by the Titans. Not a blow-out.

    You may be right, but I'll learn my lesson in December when we are or arent in the playoff race. But for now, Go Titans!

    Unless our defense returns to the effort given in the first two weeks of the season, the Colts are superior to us. Upset possibility yes but we are not on the same plain yet.

    I'm glad we play Thursday, doesn't allow much time to dwell on Sunday's horrendous effort and result.

    My guess is we lose by 7-9. Defense keeps it close but offense doesn't do enough. Basically the story of Fitzy's other 2 starts this year.

    Loss. Nothing to see here. Only way we win is if we blow them out. We have Mr. Anti-clutch and they have Mr. Clutch. I fully expect to lose if the game is close near the end.

    For the love of god i just want the Titans to score on their opening drive. So sick of 3 and outs and spotting teams unnecessary points. In the 9 games that we've played we've started from behind in 6 of those games not to mention on our first possessions in those 9 games we've gone 3 and out 6 times. Absolutely horrendous, every post game interview Munch says the same sh*t "we gotta start off better no doubt". His post game interviews are just as predictable as Loggain's play calling. Titans aren't built to play from behind as we all know so a touchdown on their first possession is imperative Thursday night. Don't even use Bironas unless its for extra points. With that being said we win on a safety.:cigar:
