    GoT doesn't even understand how the scheduling works. We went back and forth for a long time and he did not and does not understand how teams rotate divisions every year.

    No offense, GoT. :D

    But I don't think there's really a clear explanation (that makes sense) why we're playing the Seahawks in Seattle and not in Nashville.

    THANK YOU!! Finally this truly makes sense. I couldnt find this answer anywhere, so I am so thankful that you found it for me. Makes total sense with us having to play the AFC west as well in the same season. We didnt play them in '09 cause the AFC division are one fewer.

    My only problem with this one is Arizona is not the West Coast. So it would mean we travel one less game than going to Seattle now. Seems like we travel less going to AZ than WA. But whatever at least this answer has logic behind it and not just a simple I don't know deal with it.

    And I did do a google search, but I never put in West Coast Modifications as my search.

    It does suck that I wont ever get to see Lynch play in person as he will be long gone by 2017. You get 5 high fives on post for answering this for me

    Why do you think it should be 39?

    Because teams with the same record rotate their picks.

    The picks are rotating. It was a three-way tie at 6-10.

    In round one it goes Buffalo, NY, Tennessee
    In round two it goes NY, Tennessee, Buffalo
    In round three it goes Tennessee, Buffalo, NY

    Seems pretty clear to me.

    I don't know if this is common knowledge but there is a phone number to the Titans where fans can call and ask questions, kinda like a customer service line. I usually use this number if rain is in the forecast to see if they will be practicing outside on certain days for training camp (I live 45 mins away so it sucks to drive that far and them go inside the bubble to practice).

    The number is 615-565-4000.

    Don't abuse the number, I'd be afraid that they would take it away if people call in with stupid questions like "why didn't you draft x player?" It's handy to have if you have questions like this. Not sure if they can answer something so specific about the schedule but it's worth a shot.

    Were going to get destroyed, but I'm with you, it sucks. To make matters worse, I watched the end of the 96 year Oilers @ Seattle, what a joke that was.

    It's not a big deal. The schedule cycle restarted in 2010, we'll be playing everyone twice again by 2017 and it cycles again.

    I'd rather play the Cardinals at home anyway, we have a chance of winning that one.
