    If I could just se a shred of consistency I’d feel better. I’m apprehensive about what team is going to show up.

    Which I think is exactly what @Roscoes Wetsuit is trying to say. And I agree with it. On paper they should win this game, but there's a very long list of games they've lost but *should* have won. A team looking for their first W vs a team coming off a big MNF football win with a staff who can't get them ready for games. Yeah, I think it's fair to be a little apprehensive about this one.

    I'm still saying we win, and I'm hoping it's a blowout/significant W. But I could see it being ugly too.

    i just don't think the Browns defense will be able to stop the running game for the entirety of the game. I think it stays close until late but Titans win.

    Wrote Jim Wyatt about this game being a trap game, got my question featured. What he had to say:
    [​IMG]

    Michael Newsome from Drexel, North Carolina: Hey, Jim. Still riding high after that win on MNF. However, I am waking up with a sense of worry. Super emotional game, check. Against bitter rival, check. National TV, check. Fighting history, check. Getting the job done, check. Next game, go on the road against a winless team on a short week ... check. Could it be any more of a classic "trap game" situation for the Titans going into Cleveland? What are the Titans going to do to ensure we don't show up flat against the Browns and to avoid the door of the trap game falling out and dropping our spirits back down to Earth?

    Jim: Hey Michael. Well, guys only have to look back the Miami game on October 8 for a reminder of what happens when you don’t play well. And the guys who were around, the last trip to Cleveland in 2015 was a punch in the gut as well. Marcus Mariota[​IMG] got roughed up in that game, and Johnny Manziel led the Browns to a win. The Titans don’t want history to repeat itself. I think guys will be ready to play.

    Anyone got anything new on Delanie Walker? Been limited or DNP all week

    Seems like he will be held out through the bye week for rest according to rotoworld and other sources

    Heavy dose of Jonnu Smith?

    FWIW we've actually done pretty well taking care of teams we are supposed to beat OUTSIDE of our division since last season. The only loss last year I can think of that we should have won was against the chargers. This year of course the Miami game stands out. Its a different story within our division though. So far so good as long as Mariota is healthy.

    The media (PFT anyway) is having a fit over Gregg Williams saying "I hope his (Mariota) hamstring is hurting a lot." And bringing up the bounty scandal.

    To me he was simply saying for his teams sake, a hobbled Mariota is easier to deal with because of Mariotas ability to scramble. I see that more as a sign of respect for what Mariota can do than as a wish for injury.

    Even with Williams past, I don't think that comment can be taken any other way unless youre really trying to stretch it. But that's what the media does, I guess.

    I agree with you

    Media making a story outta nothing

    Just Gregg Williams saying man I hope their best player isn't 100%

    Nothing to see here
