    As long as Amy is making the hires, the Titans aren't going to have top talents at GM and head coach.

    My quick thoughts...

    - MM // Week 1 looked great. Week 2 he reminded me of that Ravens game (panicking when there was no real issue, and scrambling too early can hurt a play call's protection). Week 3 he fixed himself and the OL just crumbled... After week 2 I said I'm done with him... But now, I'm back to lets see.

    - OL // Absolute trash... Ben needs to go. Put in the rookie at G, it can't be any worse.

    - OC // if the line can't block, call some quick throws!! Way too many drop backs... Also too many bunch formation, spread things out to help open quick outs and calm that rush a bit!! I was yelling at the TV, wasn't until the end of the game that he actually finally spread things out

    - OC // We need to get into 'hurry up' to also calm that rush a bit

    - In the modern NFL, if the D holds a team to 20ish, you need to win those games... Its an OFFENSIVE league now, and yet we still make offense look so hard

    - Casey // Has been my favorite player in over the past years, but through 3 weeks, I've hardly noticed him compared to before... Shame he might be starting to slow down

    - DL // I feel we can't get pressure unless we blitz and that's a big problem... Wake wasn't on the field much, but remembering him in week 1 reminded me that we haven't had a young premier edge rusher since Javon... Pathetic.

    - ST // Why the hell is Adore still returning kicks? The guy is TRASH... I remember when we drafted him, I really wanted Tre'Davious White... Maybe he can still develop into a better CB, but he needs to be off return duties. I'm so much happier when I see Adam back there.

    - HC // In the end it all comes back to him... That 4th down call when things finally started moving for us was a horrible call, get some points on the board. Especially when he just said he wants to win the game 17-14 coming out of HT. It was way too early to go for it and I think demoralized the team. And he missed some obvious challenges in week 2. He needs to step up because while 1-2 is not so bad, 0-2 in what should be an 'easy' division now is unacceptable.

    MF right. Bingo! I co-sign this. I’m willing to put half the sacks on the OL. But even then you can’t tell me he didn’t have enough time to get rid of the ball, if nothing else throw the damn ball away. He is was too content with taking sacks and killing drives.

    The way some of you guys explain it our OL needs to give him 10 seconds in order for him not to get touched. Dudes biggest strength is his mobility and scrambling yet he can’t manage to even try to escape the pocket. If our OL is that bad then he should take it upon himself to get TF out of the pocket and make something happen himself. He doesn’t have that mentality, he just thinks I’ll just go down and we’ll get em next drive. F*** that, that’s loser talk.

    Troy Aikman stated what I feel is the obvious, “he’s way too casual in the pocket”. I’d take that a step further and say he’s way too oblivious in the pocket. This wasn’t his first start this wasn’t his first game, he’s a #2 overall pick in his FIFTH season. Quit giving the guy a pass.

    The fairies embrace average and poor play. It’s sad really.

    Marcus did NOT look great week 1. The Browns were terrible and Marcus took zero risks, so the stat line was fine. He made plenty of errors that a 5th year franchise QB should not be making.

    Exactly. Our oline is no worse than Seattle's, yet Wilson rolls out, extends and make plays regularly.

    You do realize Davis is hurt right? It isn't like they are starting Douglas because they want him to be a starter... As soon as Lewan returns, you can bet Douglas is on the bench. Once Davis returns, Douglas will be lucky to see the field in any way.

    I think we'll see Davis in Atlanta.

    Yea I get the feeling, that they are going to put him on the line. They know we can't have any more games like last night.
