    I thought I’d list what I trust and don’t about this team going into the playoffs.

    The big one: I don’t trust our Kicking game (and especially) Randy Bullock to make a pressure kick to win the game. I almost trust the opposite that Randy Bullock (or whoever) is what’s going to bounce the Titans from the playoffs. Randy is a serviceable kicker when there is no pressure on him, but if there is 3 seconds left in the game and the Titans are down by 2, and Bullock has a 45 yard kick to win the game, we are going to get bounced.

    Also, I do believe in our defense as a whole to play with any team and keep the game close.

    I also believe that Tannehill will give us a chance to win at any time in the game and in any game. If there is less than a minute to go and 3rd and 12, I think Tannehill will somehow get it done.

    I don’t believe that the Titans have a good enough offense to comfortably win games but do have a good enough qb and defense to be able to win a game despite that in the playoffs against any team in the league. These kinds of teams usually do well in the playoffs as long as they have an ice-water kicker (which the titans don’t have).

    I believe that other than finding a good kicker, I trust that Vrabel will make the right decisions to win a game. That he can get a team to the superbowl. His kryptonite seems to be finding a good kicker.

    I don’t believe Derrick Henry is enough. That the titans to advance in the playoffs they are going to need a game plan that involves a lot of leaning on Tannehill to get it done.

    And finally I do believe that the Titans have an outside shot to get to the Super Bowl. With the defense and qb and running back the Titans have, they are going to be a team nobody wants to play.

    I am surprised the Titans have won as many games as they have with Daley at LT. The defense is great but tends to break against the elite teams. See the Buffalo game.

    With that said, I also think the Titans have an outside shot at the Super Bowl, but it will require a lot of things in order to happen. They just don't once we get to the playoffs.

    Honestly, I think the fact buffalo beat the wheels off plays better to titans football in the post season. Titans would already be underdogs, but if anyone hunks they won’t be like 8 point underdogs and the media love for buffalo won’t be the story, they haven’t followed the titans long enough.

    Titans play better when counted out.

    From what I've seen over the past few years under vrabels tenure this team can beat anybody.

    But like some one alot smarter than me said every action has an equal and opposite reaction. So we'll tank to the likes of Houston, jets, etc etc.

    Forgot to add my point. Vrabel seems to get the guys to rise to the occasion.
