    well, it would be good to have a starting quarterback getting most of the reps in camp and in the preseason.

    Not ten days before your first game on the sked ...

    So you're saying that the pre-season is an indicator for how good a team is eh? The Colts were 0-4 I believe in the preseason last year. How'd they turn out? The preseason is good for evaluating talent and looking at keeping fringe players. THAT'S IT. Our problems are far more deep-rooted than Pre-season play.

    I would say that everybody that made their predictions about the Titans record for '06 , was counting yesterday's game as a Win.
    The fact we lost could be considered a very good indicator.

    I am truly dissapointed in that loss. If we would have won that and lost the next 4, I wouldnt have been as disapointed as that loss.

    We are not the Colts. The Colts are a very disciplined group, what we continue to show is inconsistency and bad fundamentals. We make the same mistakes over and over and over and over. We don't correct mistakes, we just make excuses. The preseason is for these flaws to be ironed out, and a winning mentality to be born. If you continue to allow your team to lose in the preseason, then it starts to stick in the mindset of the players and they get used to it.........I don't ever want a football player used to losing, he then loses his edge. I agree with evaluating talent, but to a point, you have minicamps and all offseason to get a feel for the cieling of a player, you don't go into games totally unprepared and vanilla to the extent that you're guys are getting embarrased because you didn't even attempt to protect them and give them the best opportunity to make plays, that is just a slap in the face.

    Kamikaz, I know what you're saying, but you know what I'm saying too, it's about being a man, and wanting to win battles. Our staff has shown us that it doesn't matter about winning battles in the offseason, therefore we go into the regular season flat and questioning ourselves as players. Did you want that when you played?
