Garrard connected on two 23-yard throws and finished with a woeful 5.08 yards per pass attempt.</p> <p>Let the purging and rebuilding begin.</p>

    As Titans fans I think we had better be hoping that Miami and the winner of SD/Den win next week.

    We want no part of either Indy or Baltimore, right now.

    ^^^More or less what he said. We will be just as wound up, if not more due to the crowd, as the other team will be. We will also have Haynesworth and KVB back. You know those two will want to wreak some nasty havoc on some opposing QBs.
    If we are firing on all cylinders like we did during the Pittsburgh game, no one will beat us.
