    Respect is earned on the field, period. And it takes a while for people to notice. Detroit's rise didn't start this season but last season. Only now are they getting props from around the league and fans.

    We're 3-1 but the Steelers are...well, the Steelers. They're at home and facing dropping to a losing record. These guys know how win and usually come up with different ways to do it. After all, nobody around here would have put money on Charlie Batch rolling us last year, but it happened.

    Even our own Tennessean sports beat writers have us losing this game and their rational is all sound. For the Titans to get a victory, we have to play balanced disciplined football with the attitude we put up against Baltimore. We can't let the Heinz field crown get in this game.

    The 49ers are 3-1 should the media spend hours on them? The Bills also?

    By whining you admit your own inferiority and paranoia. Them big eastern media types don't like us hillbillies down here.

    That's it isn't it? Your own feelings of inferiority or inadequacy?

    Last year we had the same damn thing. The titans are 5-2 and nobody respects us. We are being dissed! Yeah right we won one more game!

    There are teams that win regularly that are not media darlings. The Ravens for example. I don't remember the media fawning over the Chiefs last year either.

    Maybe if we can go to the post season 4 out of 5 seasons like we did from 99-2003 we can say we deserve some serious respect from espn and others.

    FYI Hasselbeck is getting all kinds of media kudos if people have noticed and on nfl matchup they said that a good defense and a QB playing like that is a recipe for success. We are getting some attention it is not like we are getting ignored or crapped on. That is a product of your own small minds.

    I guess if this was an isolated incident of people crying about media coverage and lack of respect it might be different. This has gone on since the team moved to TN. People acting like red headed step children always whining about not getting enough attention. Who care? This isn't the NCAA and we are trying to get a better ranking.

    For those who think we are not getting our props at what point in that 80 yard run by that 15th string Steeler's RB did you start feeling really stupid?

    I don't understand why continuously feel we get disrespected. Respect is earned !! We haven't done much over the last few years to earn that. We've been way too inconsistent. Teams like the Steelers get the benefit of the doubt even when they start off slow because of what they've done consistently year after year. We have to do the same. Its a 17 week season..people cant start crying about respect in week 5. Games like the one we're having to day is all to familiar. Until we consistently show up to play week in and week out..year after year..you can forget about it.

    04'- 5-11
    05'- 4-12
    06'- 8-8
    07- 10-6 (lost in first rd)
    08'- 13-3 (lost in first rd)
    09'- 8-8
    10'- 6-10

    Nothing about that screams we deserve respect ! We have to earn it on the field..JMO
