    This team seems to have lost the heart and us against the world attitude from last year.

    Why not us? ....because we suck

    He did come back in the game, so I wouldn't think it's too serious.

    I think you misunderstood my post.

    For a 5-1 team, a 1-5-1 team with a tattered Oline should be an easy win.

    Obviously, since the Titans always seem to play down to their opposition, this was not the case for them. Maybe one day they'll definitively beat the teams that they should beat.

    Um, they fought back just the week before giving us a FG chance to tie after being down big at the half. I get being upset about yesterday, but your statement is unwarranted IMO.

    Yesterday was clearly disappointing and a classic Titans loss. For what ever reason, we can’t win the silver platter games regardless of who is playing or coaching. We seem to have hideous loss like this every year. I do feel like the defense has trended so poorly this season that JR should have Vrabel on the carpet with a plan to right the ship.

    It's not unwarranted if you watched the game yesterday

    piss poor effort. Want to be a playoff team? you need to play game in and game out, especially against 1-5 teams

    The tackling was pathetic, 21 million on 2 new edge rushers and they have done nothing.

    Unwarranted? Nope

    This WAS a classic Titans loss. Everything tee'ed up to smash a win and we whiff. It's become a habit this year for me to keep busy during the 1st half of games, checking the score on my phone and then tuning in to the 4th quarter. I'm older and seriously the 2 hours of aggravation this year's team causes just isn't worth ruining my afternoon. I wasn't always like this, just with this year's team.

    Anyway- I started watching live in a bar in Montana the 3rd quarter. When I saw Burrow destroying us with slants and screens it reminded me how good Burrow actually is. And he has great pocket awareness. So some of the beating we took was that Burrow really IS a great QB and will be for the Bengals in the future.

    No DC is a travesty, especially with how Covid limited our TC and "live" practices. Our D players are playing undisciplined and having a neophyte Bowen calling the D plays is a horrible idea. Vrabel/ JRob REALLY messed that up. Clowney is what he's always been, freak athlete (albeit aging) that plays undisciplined. Nothing new. I never had any faith Beasley would wreak havoc. Simmons is playing well also unexpected. AJ25 is MIA, he's made of glass- I've always thought that was not a good value pick, maybe we'll get him back I don't know.

    I agree with a comment TJ made in another thread- last year was an anomaly how we avoided the injury bug. Losing Lewan appears to be bigger than I had imagined. It seems to have Tannehill flustered. Kern needs to get healthy and get back soon. I wish Gostowski had been injured instead so Vrabel/JRob would wake up to the fact that not replacing him is going to lose us one or two more games this year.

    DH22 is still the King- we'll be fine in short yardage situations. AJB11 awesome and CD84 looking improved. Offense will be fine but probably not as great as last year.

    Reading comprehension my dude. You said, and I quote: "This team seems to have lost the heart and us against the world attitude from last year.". To which I reminded you that just the week before, the team went down big, and fought back to the point of a FG sending it to OT. Pre JR Titans would have mailed that in and lost by double. So yes, your statement is unwarranted.

    Now the rest of the things you said, I'm not disputing. This D has taken a big step back, and many players have regressed. They invested in EDGE with nothing to show for it. Not hiring a DC was a huge mistake. And sadly, one I don't see getting fixed in season, which is such a waste of the talent on this roster. Getting King was good, but we need more than that, and none of it will matter if we're spotting opposing WRs 7-10 yards every damn play.
