    Two former SEC Super-Stars going at it in Nashville this Sunday. This is the premier match-up of the day if you ask me.

    On one side you have the immensely talented 6'4" rookie who has had two 100-yard games in the last 3 weeks in Justin Hunter. And across the line from him will be the 6'1" two time Pro Bowler Patrick Peterson.

    Beating Peterson deep wont happen, but when they play zone hopefully we can clear a space for Hunter to sink into and make some plays. We saw Hunters cat-like reflexes in Oakland when he broke two defenders and scampered off for a TD, I expect to see some of that come Sunday.

    Any wild predictions for Hunter that anyone would care to post?

    Hunter gets 1 catch for 6 yards and we leave the game wondering if WR is a bigger need in April.

    Thats a wild prediction for sure

    what about a realistic one though? Hunter wont have just 1 catch.

    ok three catches

    but honestly, its impossible to predict with him and this team.

    He could explode catching some 60 yard bomb and have another huge game. He could have 2-3 catches because Fitz can't get him the ball, or Peterson could just make him a non factor. Probably the hardest person to predict on offense right now.

    Well there will come times where Peterson slide inside, so I'd expect thats when Hunter would get his stats.

    But this is a great match-up. If Hunter can beat Peterson, it'll mean he's truly arrived.

    Last week Hunter was chewing up back-ups. But this week he'll get a chance to go against the best in the business. Thats about the only thing Im anxious to get to watch this game.

    But right now, its more about seeing how he holds up against premium competition. If Fitz can get him the ball, this will go a long way in telling how he will be in the future.

    It all depends on Fitz and the play calling. We are 5-7, they are 7-5. We could be blown out or we could step up to the line and deliver. It's whichever team shows up; whether the coaches(Loggains) can figure out how to play them-because most of the time, that is the issue.

    The Preds figured it out last night. Maybe the Titans can figure it out this weekend.

    The real question is why did we take Hunter over Keenan Allen?
