    3. I want to see if Shonn Green can do what he did last week and not just be a fluke.

    Along with losses to the Colts and Jaguars. Win any of those games and we're in, Munchak probably isn't on the hot seat and Kendall Wright is a Brown instead of a Titan.

    Yes, sorta.

    That loss made it very very hard for us to qualify, but it was really the Dolphins winning over the Jets to put the Jets at 8-8. IDK how, but we would have somehow benefited if the Jets tied us at 9-7 and beaten out the Bengals, and Jets as the 9-7 Wild card team.

    I think the strength of schedule was in our favor if we tied teams at 9-7, and we beat the Jets who beat the Bengals, IDK something like that.

    But thanks to loses to punk teams like Fry mentioned, we missed out.

    iirc, the three way tie break is different then two team tie.

    Two team tie with Bengals is head to head, which we lost.

    Three way tie is division record or something, which we would have won.

    I was at that game. Good time for me. Not so much for my Titans fan wife.

    I remember it as a gimpy MH not stepping aside in the Indy game and we lost that game in pathetic fashion. We had no business losing that game yet we did. Not that I'm bitter about it but I say F*** MH for that.

    Yeah thats right. We would've lost the head to head tie breaker, but would've won a 3-way tie breaker, so we needed muliple teams to have the same record as us.

    Stupid Jets

    Then there was that time a few years back where there was a similar, yet crazy scenario for us to get into the playoffs. It looked like we had no chance, but everything fell into place perfectlky for us ... except we lost our game

    I think that was VYs rookie year maybe? Either way the PO spot ended up going to the Chiefs that year I think. Their fans must've felt like it was an absolute miracle at the time to get in. So many things had to fall just so for them hahaha
