    The Bucs and Rams both beat the Saints, we should be able to win our game too. Not saying we will but we could if our running game gets rolling.

    LOL, no problem, and Happy Belated Birthday. But now that our ground game exists, we should be much more competitive than in any other games.

    Complete bollocks when we're talking Titans defense.

    Well said that man.

    The Titans didn't run an effective prevent under Schwartz and Grayhasn't yet either.

    Prevent is supposed to be all about giving the offense the short yardage in the middle of the field. Give them room but make them work for it. Make the opposition run out of time to come back from a two score deficit.

    All we've done historically is take our foot of the gas and let opposing teams back in the game. Fisher trying to play it with a 3 point lead always drove me insane.

    Prevent defense should only be run when you are up by 14 points not 3 or 6. To me when you go prevent you give the opposition MO! I wonder how many times we have given up 3rd and 15 and longer with those looks? I can think of many off the top of my head.
