  2. No way, the Titans way is to build up your hopes only to crush them as soon as you start to believe.

    I am on the hype train! The late season games against Huston will be HUGE!!! We will get flex games and finally get the respect we have been longing for! Lose in the AFC championship game to Brady and company all the while hearing the little brother comparison all week leading into it.

    The Colts aren’t **** compared to us. Little Mack will get slapped around like a flea bitten dog!!!! We will sack their QB so much Marvin Harrison will feel it!!!

    I’m expecting us to lose to the Colts , just so I don’t smash my laptop if we do. Been down this road way too many times . I truly feel Vrabel is redirecting the culture of this team though. This game is gonna show a lot . Hopefully our energy is super high at home and our defense is out for blood !

    I think we are on the right road. I have a friend who has worked for the org for many years and he swears that something is definitely different and says "these guys seem to really love each other", unlike many years he has been there.

    I see us winning the first 3, which should ramp the momentum to beat ATL in their house. With the Dolt's, it is at home and we are dang sure due. Jacksonville only scored the points they did because the Chiefs still have defensive issues. The only teams higher in the latest power rankings that we have to face, (which I know they do not mean much), is the Chargers in week 7, Chiefs in week 10, and Saints in week 16

    A lot can happen between now and then, but I am trying to remain optimistic. We have good depth, a really good backup QB, a really good OC & DC, great coach, hungry defense, a hell of a rookie receiver and good core, very strong Rback come the 3rd-4th Q, and soon, a very strong O line again

    Why not play optimistic?

    This year does feel different. I was astonished to see the play calling vs the browns. It was... Intelligent. Logical. Modern.

    If that continues, with this roster, we won't be worried about making playoffs, we'll be worried about seeding.

    I look forward to those chiefs and saints games. I think we can beat them. They both have abysmal defenses. Those will be the games where we have an opportunity to really earn respect.

    That Saints run defense was putrid. Henry should have a field day on them.

    If we don’t go off on a typical Titans meltdown spree or some major injuries we really could end up 6-0 or 5-1.

    Colt, Jags, Falcons, Bills, Broncos and Chargers. Chargers are the biggest threat if we keep playing at a high level.

    Or we end up with a more Titan-esk 4-3.

    Yep. That will be the tell if we are for real, or our usual pretenders. Can we bring it EVERY week. Consistently. Let's see.
