    Before the season began, if someone looked at our schedule and didn't believe we could get back to 9-7, I would've called them crazy.

    My point was that he obviously sees something in our team. We certainly are very talented and have a ton of potential. With proper coaching/scheming and motivation, I think we have a playoff caliber team.

    we still can get to 9-7, maybe more. Lets not get so down on ourselves that we think we are actually the worst team in the league.

    We will salvage something together, guys will start coming together and we will win some ball games. Remember, this is the worst part of our schedule and hopefully our guys will come out stronger for it.

    I would agree with you if we actually looked like a competitive football team the past two weeks. The playcalling is atrocious on both sides of the ball, coaches are not putting the players in position to succeed, opposing teams look like they know exactly what we are doing before the ball is snapped...

    This team is going in the wrong direction and Munchak wants to continue in that direction.

    It is sad to say, but I have seen this team worse. We will not be picking num1, probably late teens or 20s. We will probably not be looking for a new head coach, for better or worse. We may be looking at a new OC though. Just hold on for the ride.

    Bud Adams is a toxic owner and he would never let Gruden do what he wanted to do. Gruden wouldnt even consider this job...

    You just gave me a nice laugh.

    No way we pick late teens/early twenties. There would have to be a massive turn around, with the players putting it on themselves to play well despite the coaches and the playcalling. Right now I don't see that happening, but I would love to be proven wrong.

    I see us picking between 5 and 10. And that is being optimistic.

    I haven't given up on this team yet either. Remember the Titans started out 0-6 and they became the first team in NFL history to win 5 straight to make it back to 8-8. That was with Fisher and VY so i feel were on the right track here, theres going to be bumps in the road. Titans still can make the wildcard this year and suprise everyone. Teams that start 0-2 they say usually don't make it, but i feel they will sneak into the playoffs...would be even better taking down the texans in the playoffs. Could you imagine that??

    I remember us being competitive in those 6 losses, though. We weren't blown out every game and made to look like chumps. There was still fight in that team.

    We will see as the season moves forward, I am just not expecting anything more out of this team right now until proven wrong. Not going to get my hopes up anymore this year.
