    Titans do what they do best a surprise everyone by dropping 38 and hold NE to 23 after a garbage time FG and TD.

    Always seem to bounce back well after a brutal loss under Vrabel. Expect the same thing here. Might not win but we will play better for sure.

    This will be a tough game, Pats seem to be picking up steam. So far, Vrabel is 2-0 against the Pats. He seems to really know how to read what Belicheat wants to do and beating him at his own game.

    This is the type of game we tend to win. Even if we don’t, I think we’re in this one down to the wire. I don’t expect a chit show like we always produce against the bottom feeder teams.

    I just wonder if they even sit down and actually try to think this through or is it a full steam ahead kind of approach.

    The slow start thing still bothers me. IMO an OC has two primary jobs. To develop a plan that results in early scores to cause the opponent to react and alter their plans, and to adjust in game to capitalize on what the Defense is giving us. If we are only getting one of those from our OC, they are only good at half of their job

    Is anybody coming back from injury this week? That's the first step in the game plan on both sides of the ball.

    If the coaches can't adjust for backups they shouldn't be coaching

    Evans practiced last week. Hopefully he will be back. I think we are looking at the week after the bye to get most guys back. Julio and bud should be eligible then and a lot of nagging stuff will fade from others.

    Tennessee Titans
    OFFENSE
    Tennessee was going to face this problem sooner or later. You lose Derrick Henry and Julio Jones for prolonged stretches, and your offense is going to suffer. That's what we saw on Sunday, when the Texans trounced Tennessee, turned quarterback Ryan Tannehill into a turnover machine and reminded us that Titans running back Adrian Peterson really is 36 years old. It wasn't just that the Titans looked flat in what should've been an easy win. It's that they dropped that contest just as a road game with the New England Patriots -- a team that actually has an elite defense -- is coming up next.
