    So AFC Playbook unanymously (all 3) picked the JETS!!! Not only did they all pick the Jets, all they talked about was the Jets. The offense racked up over 500yds against Buffalo and the Defense is 3rd in the league and has held the last 3 1000yd backs to a combined 279yds.

    They were sounding like the Jets won the Super Bowl last year!

    Biggest concern is that Walker is 50/50. That could hurt us a lot in this game where he is one of our best mismatches. On the flip side, it looks like Milliner is gonna be out. Personally, I'd come out in 4 WR's with Wright on one side and the other 3 in trips on the other and see what personell the Jets use, if Cromartie covers the single guy or is matched on Nate or if they go to a zone look and try and keep some LB's on the field!

    If Walker can't go, then whatever TE we use is at best a push against a Jet LB and they don't have to worry about coverage mismatch there.

    Wilkerson against Big Country is gonna be something to watch!

    BTW, Jets fever is in full pitch because....Yankees and Mets are eliminated and the Giants look like a high school team and the Jets so far look pretty solid. For a big town with a big market, they will ride the Jets as long as they can!

    In addition to QB decision making and overall execution (and of course the turnover battle), there are good coordinator match ups in terms of playcalling. Loggains vs Rex, Morningwig vs Williams/Gray!!!

    At least we got Herm, Stink, Sims and Collinsworth believing in the titans against the Jets!

    They played the Patriots in a damn monsoon. Otherwise, the two other teams they played aren't on our level. We'll beat them up. If Geno has one of his signature multiple INT games then it may be a blowout. Our offense and defense alike have been getting stronger with each game.

    yea genos gonna give us the ball a lot plus vs pats that was the worst offensive output ive ever seen from them and although were not a better offense we will be better sunday than the pats were when they played. being in our house were looking good and can go to 3-1 with Houston likely fallin to 2-2 our crowd should be huge for us. im looking for jake to throw 215 yards 2 tds maybe this is the week we see a int but It wont hurt us in a 24-10 worse than the score looks thrashing

    Meh.....Those "experts" do as good a job as any of us over the course of the year. No doubt if Tenn throws out a lot of 4 wr sets it will be a challenge....however, the flip side is the Jets dline gets to the QB fast.....so spreading the field wide, also thins the middle.

    And you forgot about the NY Rangers.......

    I can't believe this is a 4:00 kickoff. What the hell am I supposed to do with those extra three hours, watch the Jags!?

    I HATE late Titan kickoffs. I'm up by 7-8 every Sunday so it already feels like an eternity with the noon kickoffs.

    Oh well, looks like I'm getting the Bears/Lions game at noon so at least that should be mildly interesting.

    I agree lots of hype over the Jets right now. There is explosive potential in our offense, but I'm not convinced we've been through enough games to harness it consistently vs solid defenses (Titans) and in big games (Falcons/Pats/Saints).

    Your posts seem to be the more levelheaded ones. I've watched my team closely and I just need to see more before I can start spouting game predictions confidently.

    What I do know is- CJ won't be running wild on us, unless he rips a random run to the house. Our Dline can put pressure on the QB without much LB help, which leaves a few LBs to roam in zones, help in coverage, or spy on Locker. Our CBs are suspect to blown coverages and generally be in bad positions to defend a well thrown ball. This will not dissuade Rex from calling aggressive defensive plays. Mornhinweg will want your defense being as unbalanced as possible. He will take down field shots to loosen up the run game. Geno throws interceptions on his short/short-intermediate passes, but his deep ball is nice. I know you don't fear Bilal Powell, no defense does, but him and the Oline have been playing with so much swagger.

    I think this will be a long tough game and even with a few turnovers Jets will pull it out 24-20. No disrespect, my knowledge of the Titans is very limited (especially this year). Just throwing my useless prediction out there like everyone else.
