    How many plays were left on the field this year?

    Winners don't blame lockouts, new coaching staffs, etc. Last I checked first year head coaches still get paid, just like 3rd year head coaches.

    Munchak standing on the sidelines emotionless wouldn't be a big deal if inspiration was coming from somewhere else, but its not. Michael Griffin? Chris Johnson? This is our leadership? Nah. Its about time we stopped making excuses for what we are not. Its about time we stopped being content with mediocrity in Tennessee.

    A little emotion and leadership might not seem like a lot, but it would have got us through the Indy game. It would have helped us beat Atlanta, and that Cincy game, yeah, it probably would have gone the other way if we weren't walking around with our heads down.

    Maybe you guys are cool with talking about our future, and "we'll get them next year". We need a head coach who plants the message in the Tennessee Titans that there is no "next year". With all the plays we left out there, this could have been a heck of a year. But instead, we are left sitting here, emotionless, and out of the playoffs.

    I'm sure Munchak is cool with that. I'm not.

    I do honestly feel like we should've been 11-5 or even 10-6.You had the first Jax game where Matt should not have thrown that pass and let Bironas kick a FG.Then you had the Cincy game and of course Indy which was embarrasing because of Donald Brown 80 yard run and a Matt pick 6 is what lost that one to a then winless Colts team.If Britt was healthy all year i'd say we would easily be 11-5.

    Like someone said today all it takes is a play here and a play there and thats the difference between a 6-10 or 10-6 team is just a few unlucky or lucky bounces.Just 5 or 6 bad plays could be the difference between a winning or losing season.

    What record were you expecting?

    You better believed I'm pissed about not making the playoffs, but did you participate in our early season poll?

    Content No. But we exceeded expectations. We have a crap OC, crap Oline, lost Kenny Britt, and went through the season with our QB and WRs still out of sync. I would have loved the playoffs. But this season was not a failure. We got a glimpse of the future. And it's brighter than it's looked in years.

    ^^ I'd like to see that pulled up. If I remember correctly, there were only a handful that predicted us doing as well or better than we ended up.

    I predicted 8-8. Let's keep in mind we were 6-10 last year. A three game improvement is something to be proud of. Let's keep in mind some NFL talking heads picked the Titans to have the worst record in the league (I specifically remember Mel Kiper saying this) and getting the number 1 pick. Many thought the lockout would effect the Titans the worst with a new QB, HC, OC, and DC. Yes it sucks that we're the only 9-7 team not to make the playoffs but just think if we see a 3 game improvement next year.

    all excuses aside EVERY team in the league has games they could have and should have won and we are no different. I predicted 7-9 this year and that was with Kenny Britt and a good CJ. so 9-7 is just fine in my books.... especially since we are still in the rebuilding process

    Did the early season poll include manning playing 0 plays this year?

    Great video, so high five for that. I disagree with everything you typed, though.

    Only would've gave us one more loss or win (depending on how you look at it). We split with the Colts this year.
