    I swear, it really does bite, and I didn't like the comment made by, I think it was michael irvin about this being the only gatorade bath he gets. We beat a very stout football team, and we socked them in the mouth in every aspect of the game. Offense, defense, and Special teams. I said in another post that I was very pleased with the coaching this game to keep pressing. I was really expecting us to go into the 3rd quarter and begin to start running the ball and go 3 and out. I had forgotten that we don't have Fisher anymore. Many games I see us just begin to play conservatively and lose the game in the last seconds. I have not seen us play with this much intensity and fire in a long time. The last time was Monday night against the Colts, "Code Blue." But this game brought me back to the Steve McNair and Warren Moon eras. The hits were awesome and reminded me of the old "HOUSE of PAIN." I just really wish that we could get some credit. Oh well, I guess we may have to win the Superbowl this year and next two years after to be put on the radar.

    In all seriousness, we can really take our division playing like we did this Sunday. We're only going to get better and I can't wait for us to be running on all cylinders. We beat the RATBIRDS!!!! I am so damn happy right now.

    A Toast to the BEST FANS in the NFL.

    Fans of the Cowboys, 49ers, Patriots, Steelers, and Colts are like Bologna sandwiches. They're everywhere and cheap. We Titans are rare and scarce, just like Fillet Mignon.

    Respect is earned. 6-10 last year and one win this year earns you no respect.

    Sorry.

    I must say you're right. I guess, I am just excited to see how we well we played. It has been a real long time since we've played like that and kept applying more and more pressure. We actually went for the jugular against the Ratbirds. Well, here's to going 12-4 this season, and then another 3 more wins on top of that.

    I'm not asking for the Titans be named a top 10 team yet.

    I'm asking for some damn highlights. They spend 5 or more minutes on every game, but only 30 seconds on ours. It makes no sense.

    There were some very impressive plays in our game that no one outside Tennessee or Baltimore has seen.

    I think it's disrespectful to overlook any team after they knock off the #3 team (based on the power rankings). Upsets always draw plenty of attention and highlights, but not with us.

    It's all good... The Texans are still a top 5 team in ESPN's eyes. These guys just have no clue.

    Nobody cares about the Titans but Titan fans. Apparently nobody at NFL network is one. Honestly, it is better to be under the radar. I don't need to hear so called experts give me validation that my team is any good. I have our games dvr'd. I don't need to hear what PastTime or Irvin has to say about our team to recognize we have something sexy this year.

    Let them hate and overlook us.

    This team has a history of feeding off that.

    they'll start paying attention to the Titans when the nation starts caring, which they don't, and probably never will until we win the Super Bowl. I'm two hours from Nashville, and I only know a few Titans fans in my city. It's a newish team in a moderately small market, with a moderately small amount of fans. It just makes sense. I remember before the Titans/Rams SB Jay Leno said this is the first Super Bowl noone cares about.. Which would have been true had it not been such a great game.

    Plus, the Titans generally have not been an exciting team to watch. Looked like an entirely different team last Sunday.

    Let's get a winning streak together before we demand some respect. You had a great post and I do agree with you but with everything that has been going on with this team the past couple years we're perceived as one of the jokes of the NFL. Of course if you fire a coach who hasn't done anything the past few years and cut a QB who causes problems it's fine but if it's the Titans then we get hated on.

    We lost to the freaking Jags week 1, if we were 2-0 now then yes you better believe I would be wanting a bit more respect but like bigtitan said, respect is earned. If we get our revenge on Orton and beat the Browns then yes we deserve some.

    The NFL is about SB's won. Everytime u hear fans debating on a player being great in any sport, they involve rings. We have none. When we win one we might get talked about more, but i see where your coming from. It is annoying at times to watch ESPN and have them dog us. I know we can say oh they dont know what they talking about , but they do in somethings. One thing ive noticed is that when i predict something i base it off history.

    Example: Browns went 10-6 with Derek Anderson. Anderson threw alot of picks that year, but everyone was on their nuts about rising and him being the next big QB. I said theyll be lucky to win 6 games the next yr and he sucks. Everybody said i was crazy, but when they fell off and Anderson sucked it, everybody ignored what i said even though they knew i was right. When have the Browns been consistent? Thats what i based it off of. I said Cromartie was overrated during his 10 pick season, 7 of them were thrown RIGHT AT HIM, all he hadda do was catch it. Everybody said i was crazy, and then he got exposed. Trust me i been 80-90% most of the time every year in picks, debates or predictions. Maybe i know my stuff. If ppl would pay attention to the lil things in the game i think we'd be talked on more and fans wouldnt be such stupid or unrealistic with stuff.

    Nobody likes to give credit when its due, i do though so i know im real. Other ppl wont though, they'll find a excuse for us bcuz we arent talked about, nor have won a super bowl. And if we win that theyll prob say we got lucky bcuz a certain team didnt play us. So realistically its impossible for us to get respect til we have Colts success every year, or Patriots success. With Locker ( i like his drive to lead ) i think we can do that. When we pull out 10 wins a year i think over time itll change how ppl see us. Until then, expect no love. But they'll be wrong about us when we make the playoffs this year.

    We lost to the Jags bcuz we didnt gameplan forreal.. If anyone watched the game they woulda known we didnt go out there to light it up or try hard. CJ had 9 carries... If we were trying CJ GETS MORE THEN 9 carries... Forget the rushing stats against us, Jags didnt really have any big plays, Mike Thomas kinda got lucky with that 26 yard catch, If Griffin makes that play better Thomas doesnt catch it. We have a top 10 RB QB WR and Defense. We are one of those teams where we beat ourselves alot. Thats def one thing Fisher always did was manage to let ourselves beat ourselves. When we dont, we are hard to beat. Only years where we really didnt have a team that could make the playoffs was with Volek and Youngs first year starting. Thats about it. Every other team we had could make the playoffs. So us being jokes on the NFL is ppl not knowing their stuff. We fired a coach we knew was overrated, and always managed a letdown. I love Fisher he was cool but lets face it he hurt us more then helped us after the 03 season. To me, we got BETTER ditchign Fisher and all those cordinators. These new guys seem to know where to put certain players bcuz of their abilities. We threw MORE against the Ravens then we ever have. We didnt stick with the run when we werent getting any success. Seems we learned and got better. Lil things like i said in my previous post if ppl watched or paid attention we wouldnt be a joke.
