    I was only half joking, we need a kick in the butt though for sure. Tebow-like powers is what I'm talking about, we need some kind of luck from the universe.

    I am thinking about selling my PSL's also. I have a guy at work who says he is interested in them so we shall see how that works out. I have been selling most of this yrs tickets because we are unable to go since the gf has to work on Sunday which has also cut into our backapcking trips :irked:

    Also for what I paid for my PSL's and season tickets all of these yr I might could have been able to retire already...lol well I could at least have a kick ass TV and sound system :brow:

    I voted no but I did sell 2 tickets to the Pats games (luckily to other Titans fans).

    I don't know if this is helpful, but I do business with a establishment that does business with a couple of active Titans a couple times a week. Rumor Mill has it from these two Titans that the players have little faith in the coaching staff. In other words the coaches have lost the team.

    I was surprised to hear that....... but maybe I shouldn't be?

    In years past under Fisher when we knew the coaches had lost the team, it showed on tape.

    I haven't seen anything on Sundays to suggest that is happening this year.

    Yea we suck, but at least the players are still fighting for most of the 4 quarters.

    Really?

    I don't think it's a coincidence that every time we get down by a few scores it just snowballs from there. When the going gets tough, this team quits. I'm not saying everyone. But I see very little fight in this team as a whole.

    Look at the Texans game for example. It's what, 14-7 at the half? Then Hass throws the pick 6 in the 3rd Q and suddenly we look like a completely different team out there. And we end up getting blown out 38-14.

    Perhaps "quits" isnt the right word. I just think this team has zero confidence that they can overcome large deficits. And it shows on the field in those situations.

    It's human nature to do that though, doesn't mean the team has quit.

    They way I tell if they want it or not is how they tackle.

    If they start whiffing and acting like the next guy's got this, then yea they've quit, but when I see gang tackling on 3rd & 1's vs Houston, I feel like they still want it.

    I think we are quitting. You can tell when Percy Harvin powers through people and guys like Griffin move out of the way because they don't want to tackle.

    So reflecting on this thread...

    Two of our home wins (although not pretty) were exciting wins. We are 3-4 and "in the hunt" so to speak. Honestly don't see why anyone would want to bail at this point. Gotta support through the ups and downs.
