TJ, I like your insight. I, too, do not think we can blame everything on the coordinators. I wish I had answers for today's debacle. I honestly think today was one of the worst performances I have ever seen from the Titans. This is especially true when you consider the magnitude of the game. Was anyone else glued to the TV rooting for Chicago? I think it is time for Bud to make a phone call. He needs to explain to Fish & Co. that we were outplayed and out-coached--it worked the last time. As far as our team, it is hard for me to believe that Albert is that valuable--but it is apparently true. Even KVB has been largely ineffective and no one can question his heart. Albert is the only missing link. Lendale is not a good running back. Do we need to draft a running back? No. The New York Times has a great article in today's paper about the fact that RB's are easy to find and cheap to replace. We do, however, need to put Lendale on the bench and find a way, any way, to motivate him. Before the season started, I think anyone would have been happy with 9-7. We got spoiled. Our talent level is not there. We have had several bad drafts. Losing Pac Man made a bad situation worse. We might not make the playoffs, but I will still be content with 9-7--this assumes, of course, that the players actually play and look like they care. After today's game, I am not sure that either of these things (playing and playing with heart) will happen.
