    I'm not all that bummed about losing yesterday. I honestly thought we would get blown out. Once again, I pretty much correctly predicted the tempo of the game. I said it would be very close at halftime (a 10-6 type game) and that the Seahawks would run away with it in the second half.

    They ran away with it, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected.

    At 3-3 we are tied for 7th in the AFC. We're behind only Miami for the 6th seed. If the Colts lose tonight, we will be in decent shape to continue competing for the division.

    I still think we end up 10-6 this season.

    I agree, I feel like as titans fans we have been through a lot worse games than this. This loss stings but we can bounce back unlike some games that haunt me forever.

    Anyone know if Pollard can throw a spiral?

    We should be grateful that this team plays hard and competes every week. That was certainly not the case last year.

    If this were last year, we may very well only have one more loss than we do right now, but the losses would've been miserable and embarrassing... Chiefs and Seahawks would've slaughtered the 2012 Titans.

    We're heading in the right direction... reminds me a little bit of 2007. A lot of the pieces were in place for us, but we just needed one more difference maker on offense to be able to contend for a Super Bowl. Then in 2008, CJ came along and we had the best team in the NFL - I don't care what the haters say; we were the best. Just ****ing blew it in January as always.

    Everything I predicted about this year's team has come true... and I expect us to continue getting better every week. Let's keep flying under the radar, sneak into the playoffs, and do something.

    The 2002 game doesn't really haunt me because I knew we'd lose. It was an awesome season and totally worth it though. 1-4 to 11-5 to AFC Championship.

    The rest, yes... I'll never forget the awful way they finished. All within our reach until the final drive. And I'm convinced if we come out the W in those games, we have three rings. Fisher's fault through and through. I cannot stress that enough.

    I agree the 2002 season was awesome, I will never forget Mac 9 vs the gmen and how tough he played that year. It doesn't haunt me because I knew we left it ALL on the field. I am convinced in 2003 if Drew Bennett comes down with that ball, we win that game and get a ring, I agree there. Fisher played not to lose and we lost that jackass.

    How dare you forget the SB :)

    I still have that game recorded and to this day still haven't watched it.
