    Well I’ll have to admit that I’m pleasantly surprised that we are set up to make a run at the playoffs after the disastrous 2-4 start. thank you Tanny, Thank you Henry....thank you special teams! Oh, and thank you Vrabel for benching MM8.

    We are now one of the hottest teams in the NFL and at the right time to boot. Now this is the point when the old Titans drop the ball and lose should be win games (Raiders?) Do we finally buck the traditional Titans trend and roll into the playoffs on a major win streak as a team no one wants to play? Or crash and burn?

    I want to believe this time is different, I really do, but I’ve been burnt so many times in the past I’m still skeptical. What do you guys think? 100% sold, or Titans fools gold?

    The win at the clots has me believing in this years Titans team. I'll just enjoy the ride and keep hoping for the best.

    The win at the Colts showed me concern for good teams... our weaknesses are blaring.

    Secondary is the weakness of the defense and the Oline of the offense.

    The team that exploits that... concerning.

    The negative plays. Can't have those. Eliminate those and we have enough talent to compete with the big boys left of the schedule. Also, must score in the first half. The team hasn't proven yet that we have enough talent to overcome mistakes, but without the negative yardage plays, we do play a style that could beat Houston and the Saints, as well as New England.

    It's going to come down to Henry. His running will be the best offense and defense. If we try or have to air the ball out we ded.

    The secondary is, I fear, going to be exposed by the Texans WRs/Watson. I just can’t see ya beating them unless we can manage to keep their offense off the field. Think we will beat the Raiders, NO will be tough if they are playing for playoff seeding but doable, just can not see us beating thenTexans twice to win the division outright. That O line has issues as well, but Tanny/WRs, if given a little time can make big plays, soooo I’ve been burned too many times to believe we are capable of doing this but man I really want to believe, get back to me in 2 weeks lol

    Agree with most. Many of us have been fans of this team for years and have experienced just flat out awful emotional let downs. I believe this team experienced a ton of good fortune lately that can't be overlooked if you are truly being skeptical. The defense albeit good seem to have lost a small step with all the injuries, the o-line is still playing average to below average, and you can't count on 2 blocked FGs to win games.

    I mention that because without the missed fg, 2 blocks the Colts game would have carried a different tune. All that to say for the Colts to be that injured on both sides of the ball, no way that game should have been as close as it was for as long as it was. That being said, admittedly this team IS different. They have been finding ways to win in different areas, that's not only impressive, but a trait good teams display.

    So I'm cautiously optimistic. I look at this a bit differently than most. Right now we are 7-5, with the Raiders, Saints, a Texans (2x) on the schedule for December. This team feel like a team that may split with the Texans, and probably loose either to the Saints or Raiders. So assuming they do how'd you feel after another 9-7 season, precisely what we wanted to avoid?

    Bottom line in order for me to feel good about this team I'd need to see 2 more conservative wins. As the next two games have playoff implications. I'd love to see 10-6 but think 9-7 is more practical. Hopefully I'm wrong and this team finish with double digits in the win column.
