    I like ham. Thank goodness I planned ahead for this eventually. Lots of good stuff to eat and drink. Merry Christmas!

    We're not bad. We're just not good. There is actually a difference.

    That said, cheers to firing the staff.

    Too bad we're not firing this staff.

    This is what adds salt to the wounds. Makes me sick.

    Goff was rarely pressured today, Gurley feasted on our defense on the ground and catching passes as he got over 100 yards in both categories. Jimmy G lit us up and torched us for career numbers. DLB defense has been weak for years. Our team just sucks on all fronts, defense and offense. I think players giving up on these dinosaur coaches.

    As Jeff noted, there are many things we do well, especially STs. That said, our DBs are just awful at coverage and tackling. We had them stopped on 4th down but Gurley steps right out of a leg tackle (were you watching Henry?) and gets the first. Lots of shoulder checking too. We need some hitters. Cypien is a *****.

    Naw. They are mediocre. They flash some good play. They look piss poor pathetic in others. Just when you think they've taken a step, they take two back.

    I thought the offense did some better things today. But you can't have the one or two horrible plays by Mariota, stupid penalties, missed assignments, etc. The Titans are not good enough to beat most teams making these kinds of mistakes.

    Though I would love to see a new coaching staff, there are some personnel improvements which have to be addressed along with improvement from players who have to be more consistent.

    Defense wasnt expected to be good anyway. We all thought we had a dynamic offense to overcome our defense, but oh well..

    We were without 2 of the top 3 CB's today. Team got gashed less than I expected.

    Team needs more CB depth.

    And the defense giving up 37 points to SF and 36 to us is good?
