    After last week's horrible loss, I was thinking about the 59-0 blowout in '09. The Titans were 0-6 after that game entering their bye week. Fisher decided to put in Young over Collins. That Titans team came back and ripped off five straight wins in finishing 8-2 and the season 8-8.

    That was about as weird a season as I can remember though this one could be just as strange and eerily similar.

    Though Young only had one game during that win streak which had eye-popping stats, he gave the team something they lacked with Collins at QB. Everyone else seems to step up their game.

    Which brings us to today. After a loss as embarrassing (if not more) as that Pats game in '09, we see Locker come in and, though he didn't do anything outstanding passing the ball, made plays with his legs and gave the Titans a spark that was missing. And everyone else today seemed to take their game to the next level.

    We can only hope this season continues to play out like that one.

    I refuse to let one game give me foggy goggles.

    Then again, our schedule isn't really that hard at all. If we play like the way we did today, there is no doubt in my mind we will be waiting for other teams to help us out come week 16 and 17.

    True. But to come out strong after both blowouts seems really...

    except this time we make the playoffs ...

    just kidding. I will need to see more than one game before I seriously start thinking like that, but it was a nice win today. Much needed for the moral of the team/fans

    Way too early to tell. Miami aren't that good and we are not as bad as we were against Chicago.

    Also Bud forced the change. Fisher was happy riding Collins to 0-16.

    Miami was actually a couple nail biting plays away from being 7-1. But I still don't think they are that good.

    We will have a hard time beating HOU and I doubt we get in at 9-7, plus we still have GB coming up.

    I see two more losses at a minimum.

    More middle of the pack records for more mediocre drafts for more mediocre seasons for more mediocre offseason signings for more mediocre coaches.

    Celebrate good times.
