    Two teams tied atop their divsions with one team having the #1 ranked defense, doesn't sound less than stellar to me.

    If we beat Pittsburgh it will only be because they are getting "too old" or Big Ben's foot was hurting. We will still get stepped on in the media and we will still hear every excuse there is not to talk about us as being a contender.

    The only thing I saw was the play to Cook was highlighted on NBC before the late game last night, but it was probably 20 seconds long.

    I guess we have to go on a 10 game winning streak before anyone notices, but I'm like a lot of you, I like flying under the radar.

    And why do people even need to hear their "team" mentioned more in the media?

    Do people here build self confidence from that?

    When the Titans are being talked about the way folks here wish they were being talked about you will know they've arrived. Thus far they are equal to the 49ers. It will come.

    no we really dont deserve any recognition. we only get talked about for cj lockout, and the criminal records of our players. titans are a small market team and will never get talked about until they win the super bowl. remember when we were 9-0 or 10-0, remember the year before when the pats were. we had probably 10% of the headlines the pats did at 10-0. thats the way its going to be

    Inside the NFL on Showtime......
    Titans highlights have been in "the whip-around" for the 1st 3 weeks. (10 secons or 1 play.)
    Is Primetime Sanders re-thinking his comment about Munch not getting a chance for another Gatorade bath this year because we wouldn't win again?

    We talk about this subject because it is something to discuss. Yes.....it is typical after all of these years but it still sucks.
    Everything leading into this weekend was all Vick and Romo......all the time.

    (And I'm sure that Romo had a fractured rib during that one game that he came back in to. However, the comments in the media that he "played with a collapsed lung".....I gotta call BS on that. I'm sure it collapsed, but AFTER the game. He COULD NOT have functioned on the field with a collapsed lung. He is still the most overrated QB in the NFL.)

    So all this talk about the Titans being on the front page of nfl.com I decided to check it out it's only a little opinion article by LaCanfora with a couple of small jumbled sentences... I can't call those paragraphs.

    Well there are a few pundits who seem to like us. Skip Bayless predicted us to have a good year last year before the VY incident. Keyshawn Johnson seems to like us. Micheal Lombardi predicted us to win the AFC south and everyone called him an idiot.(Note he also predicted the redskins to win the NFC east which was a good call as well).

    I also prefer to fly under the radar a little more. This Defence under Gray is exciting to watch, and the offense is anything but Vanilla. We also have a very favourable schedule IMO. I though this was a 9-7 team but I may even have underestimated us.
