wow all signs seem to be pointing towards a locker start, this is cray
im all giddy inside
If Jake plays, I bet the stadium will be rocking when they call his name out.
If Jake thinks he can play let him. No one stopped Mac9 and he had worse injuries. Also, I have a feeling the line will play with more passion to try and protect him. They must play him if they are leading us on this much.
Man this is scary. As much as I want Jake to play with only one more game before the bye, it sure would be nice to sit him so he'll be fully healthy after the bye. It would just suck if Jake re-aggravates the hip or knee during the game. Thinking about it I kinda want him to rest another week even though it means we'll probably lose.
Gotta go with the doctors take, I'll be nervous as anyone else but if he's cleared to play then let's do it. We need this win bad heading into our bye week.
The day after we learned Jake would be ok and they said it was a 4-8 week recovery I called Bull S***. It takes 3 weeks to come off a minor sprain (which is what he had), Im pleasantly surprised I was right on the money.
Ill be nervous as heck if he plays sunday because he won't be playing at 100%. A lot of players don't play at 100% but the qb position needs to be close to that in order to win games. I am afraid he will take a hit that will get him back on the sidelines for even longer. I think rest for one game before the bye would be best for the team but if they think he can go and he thinks he can go then it's a go.
If you were Jake's mom ok I get the caution, but come on man, you want to win right? Well thats nearly impossible with Fitzpatrick. Jake needs to play, this is a must win. We lose and who knows where these guys heads go, we've seen this personnel fold midseason before, not looking for that to happen again, this week is a tipping point if we lose.
see, this is where you lose me. I don't understand how this is a must win game because we are 1 game out of first with the colts playing the best team in the nfl come sunday night. If Jake is not 100%, he should not be on the field. I want to make the playoffs and we need a healthy locker to do it so don't rush him back.
I get what you're saying and 9/10 times Im with you, but this is the Titans, falling below .500 will be detrimental for us. We need the momentum of a big win, otherwise for 2 full weeks players and coaches are going to have to answer all the wrong kinds of questions.
If he's able to play, he should. It would be nice to be able to sit him until after the bye to get him more rest BUT if he's good enough to go then he should.
It is clear to Jake just how much this team needs him and how horrible we are with #4 in there. Going into the bye 4-3 with Indy playing against a fired-up Peyton could have us tied for the division coming out for the STL game. Jake at 70-80% is better than Fitz at 100%.
