    also these pink flags and pink towels are confusing, penalty or no penalty? Keep the towels pink, there are more players than refs to promote cancer awareness but bring back the yellow flags.

    So we are okay with Fitz or no? Maybe he plays better after more reps with the team?

    Without a decent run game... it doesn't matter.

    Even with Locker in... eventually things would "even out" with the offense sputtering due to no true run game.

    Unfortunately for Fitz the 3 games he's starting are against probably the top 3 defenses on our schedule.

    I'm alright with Fitz. Of course I'm not expecting him to look like an all-pro against the #1 defense in the league, with zero run game and receivers dropping balls all over the place. I'm weird that way.

    D rey should have come up the 3 or 4 yards and caught the punt instead of lettin it hit the turf which i think he was told that notice the next punt the ball further away from him he comes up and far catches it. If this happens we arent down from the start of course the refs would have done something to get us done in

    After a few hours of feeling nauseated... I began to think a bit on this game.

    Reynaud is a bad, bad return man. Helped spot KC 7 points.

    Run game suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks. Oline looks terrible for what was done in the off-season. Put Schweinke(sp?) in and let it ride. Gel my ass... the line would look AS BAD, at worst, as it does now.

    On that same note, the play-calling for the run game is pathetic. Run CJ up the middle? The hell? Roos even said in his post-game interview how Loggains didn't have any runs anywhere BUT up the middle. Idiot Coordinator.

    Calls were... bad, but they did even out. Not so certain about one of those PIs that gave the Titans renewed chance to score... The glaring problem was how that one call - which was a doozy of a bad call - pretty much gave KC the go-ahead score to take the lead. THAT is what made it bad. The timing.

    Fitz was a decent back-up. I mean, when you have NO ONE ELSE helping you... no run game, players dropping balls left-and-right... average-to-bad protection... Fitz did the best he could. He even started to look good in the second half. The problem was when they game had to be put on his shoulders at the end. Saw the turn-overs coming a mile away. Fitz just isn't clutch.

    ST kept their return game in check.



    Ok, so all that... no run game, giving them a TD, no pass protection, a critical call at a bad time... the Titans almost came away with it. Yeah, almost only matters so much... but, there was very little going right for the Titans and they came close to defeating an undefeated team.

    Sucks that it was an AFC team, though...



    Oh yeah... also without Locker. So... add back-up QB to the mix... yeah, KC had a lot going in their favor and STILL barely won. Future looks decent is all I'm saying...

    You guys don't give your D enough credit. The reason it was STILL that close, was because of the Titans very solid D. The Chiefs aren't going to blow teams out anyways.
