    It should be pretty clear by now, I am a stick up for the team kind of guy...No matter what. I am beginning to believe that Schwartz may be a liability we can't afford...However I found this very interesting...and made me feel a little better about our defense.

    I don't know if any of you were watching Sunday Night Football --Colts v Seahawks late in the game...The Seahawks made what was a pretty good gain on a pass play...John Madden said this.

    "Ya know that combination has always worked well in preseason games. And the the longer the season goes, the more they take that away. That ole bootleg where the QB fakes to the backs goin' one way, he goes the other way and the reciever crosses the field. In preseason, they never. ever cover it...Never Have covered it...But once the season starts, they start picking up on thoses things...But if there's anything thats a giveme in preseason, it's usually the bootleg pass"

    Our D has work to do in several areas, but I thought that was a interesting

    I agree with this post, the Titans have now palyed one of the worst teams and one of the best teams in the league. The truth is the Titans are somewhere in the middle and with an adjustment on the defense (will Jeff step in and say "I used to play d and this is not working"?) could be decent instead of the embarrassment they were last night. All I am really asking for is effort instead of looking like quitters. Last night gave me flashback of the last couple of games last season.

    I say it will take about another 2 years or so before we can become a contender in the afc.

    I hope it's not going to be that much longer. We've been getting beat on for the past two years now. And, I'm not sure if I can take another two years of that.

    So, things better turn around quicker than you think they will. If not, there will be quite a few new people who see this team win who weren't in Nashville the last time they did.

    Shanahan was really upset about Denvers performance against Detroit last week and said they would do some game planning for the Titans. They are hard enough to defense if you do game plan for them and it didnt appear we did. I also suspect Dinger wanted to rub it in as much as possible and once we got behind it just got out of hand. It was a terrible performance no question about it but maybe guys will get really intense this week and in the end it will become a positive. I think we will see a much better performance and effort next week and get back on track.

    That's possible but it could turn around quicker than you think. Lots of team do it, so why can't we. We've been really bad over the last couple years so it's looking very grim now but I still keep the faith that things could turn around quickly. I'm not saying Super Bowl or anything but I'd say by next year we should be competing at a play-off contending caliber. It's going to depend on how lond it takes VY to mature and play like he should.

    Everyone needs to quit worrying about the Broncos game! For crying out loud! This is the pre-season! There's no need to panic, fire all the coaches, and start worrying about next years draft. Don't forget we were 1-3 the year we went to the SB. Hell, the Colts were 0-5 last pre-season before rattling off 13 straight. Granted the Denver game wasn't very promising but no reason to hit the panic button yet.

    I was a pretty big Chris Brown fan, but couldnt help but notice in the last two preseaon games hes been shakin up....Lendale White impressed me a lot with is tough hard running.... maybe Lendale really is the future...maybe since you all think we will be choosing in the top 10 picks of next years draft, which may be true, we could get Dwayne Jarret...Adrian Peterson (dunnno why but hey why not) or Ted Ginn.... maybe Baraka Atkins who knows

    I agree with you here. One thing a coach should never do is throw his team under the bus when he is talking to the media. It would show a lack of respect to the players, and the players would in turn lose trust in the coach. If the coach wants to say something about his players in a closed meeting, that's fine, but he should never say anything to the media.

    I actually saw some positives in the game. With White, VY and the rest of the second team in the game we saw a glimpse of what the future will be. They were some what competitive and didn't make huge mistakes. They looked more comfortable then the fist team.

    The negatives I saw were the fist three quarters. The first team look completely out of rythm. The defense had no backbone what so ever. Special teams look fine, especially with Wade, I like the kid.
