    There's a blast from the past. :)

    I think the Titans have to walk before they run. Winning Sunday would be a big step in the right direction. I think most of us know making the playoffs is a lofty goal for a team who gave up as many points as the Titans did last season.

    Every year someone flips a losing record. Anything can happen.

    The most important thing we can do in this game is stop Redman from running the ball and wrap up their speedy receivers. The Steelers have moved to an offense that looks to grind up clock with long drives in order to protect Ben. If we can force Rothlesburger in 3rd and long situations then we can attack him with our front seven.

    Hopefully we kickoff first.. I hate when we receive the ball first to begin the game.

    All of 2011 we won by kicking off, so we'll see.

    This preseason I did notice Munchak select to receiver first, so again, we'll have to see.

    Redman averaged 2.8 YPC on us last year, he's not the threat he's perceived to be.

    Sure he's big, and we sucked at tackling last year, but the tides are turning.

    Nothing more discouraging than receiving the ball first, getting a touchback, going 3 and out and giving them the ball at almost midfield..

    Just saw Big Bones picks for the week, and that dude is a fake fan, he's picking the Steelers :disappointed:

    The other issue is Locker vs Dick LaBeau's scheme. There's a lot of moving parts to that Steeler defense
