    Interesting no one has the Titans among the top ten teams to make the Superbowl in 2021.

    I think we had about 3 games I could say were somewhat of a shootout with THill this year.
    Houston #1. Even though the final score was only 24-21, both teams went up and down the field. THill did well and really it wasn’t kind of dumb luck Houston won. Imagine if their INT wasn’t returned from the EZ 80 yards but 1 of ours were. Probably reverse score.

    Oak - final score doesn’t show shootout but the first half definately was. THill had a good game, Carr probably doesn’t count as elite thrower though.

    TB needed THill to save that game and he did. Winston isn’t elite.

    LAC another big game from THill and against rivers. 29-23 isnt really shootout per se but he did a good job.


    Much like Manning in the early 2000’s, just about every QB needs a little something from at least the D.
    I just don’t think I can agree that THill can’t hold his own against another QB ripping up our D. That’s not to say I think THill is some top 5 QB of the league. He had a great year.

    The Titans are not going to be the next big thing. That was just their flash in the pan.

    Its a process. This is only Vrable's 2nd year. The year before Vrable we got eliminated in the divisional round and today we made it 1 step further. Still missing a few links, but we are improving and moving in the right direction.

    This. It’s def a process. We’ve def taken steps forward from out past 20 years. Now it’s a matter of hitting on a few picks that are game changers, avoiding the injury bug, and making a few big plays. I think we’ve got the right GM and coach to get it done.

    We weren’t just lucky to make it to the AFC championship game this year. We played great football. We’re capable. Now consistency needs to be the norm.

    Good teams have to be multidimensional. I thought we would have to pass-to-win, and they seemed to have our number with their run D.

    The Chiefs ran well, showing they can beat you in multiple ways, which you need in the 'one-game-take-all' format of the NFL.

    I think our D did great, and I'm not mad at our DBs either. Most of the time Mahomes had all day back there, and against an Elite QB, you need Elite rusher(s), plain and simple.

    I was reminded of Cam on that amazing year he had, the one time I think he looked human was when Von/Ware tore things up. He too could run and gun like Mahomes, and they corralled him all game, showing that ultimately we are still missing pieces.

    I'm so bummed, like borderline depression, but the most important thing is we build, not regress.

    We've showed many times during the season and during games that we are not the 'Titans of old', but this is the final step to really prove it, to be a team that moves forward and not back.

    so, other than getting pressure on the qb, and being able to cover more than 2 seconds, and stopping the run the d played great? WTF
