    This be a good week to also monitor the improvement of our offensive line. Lasat year we didn't have levitre, warmack, or turner. Should make a big difference in this ball game. Anxious to see warmack on watt also. The defense looked good last week but steelers don't have the talent like texans. Will be even more critical to control the ball and the clock. the other is we got to knock their QB ever chance we can. we need to stuff him on every play. disrupt him all the time. we lose time of possession in this game we going to lose this game.

    We will need to keep the pressure on the Texans with the defense and keep scoring and not go into prevent mode with a small lead. They can come back just like they did Sunday night. If we do win we still want get any kudos from the talking heads.

    GO TITANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Texans offense is light years better than the Steelers. I will be shocked if we are able to shut them down like the Steelers. It is easy to look good when a team is one dimensional like the Steelers were. The Texans offense is multi-dimensional and looked very very good last night.

    We will learn a bunch about our team this game because the Texans are top notch on both sides of the ball. Is our new OL really able to control the game for us? Is our larger DL able to stuff the run? If our lines can win their matchups or at least hold their own then it bodes well for our season.

    Our offense can't turn the ball over and our defense needs to hold them to FGs instead of TDs everytime they get in the red zone.

    I think this is a game that we might see the 3 safety package some because the Texans like to run the ball so much and like to throw to the TE so much. I could see Pollard in the box all day with Griffin and Wilson as the safeties.

    LBs will be key for us. They have to make sure they don't let Foster/Tate to the next level, shut down Daniels, and take advantage of their right side when going after Schaub.

    Interesting info. couple things first good luck to you guys. Second the Texans will not be shut down so those ideas are crazy. AJ and Daniels have rarely been locked down but lets say by some miracle they are. The the addition of Hopkins and the emergence of Garrett Graham our other TE Schaub has a buffet of catchers including our two headed RB monsters of Foster and Tate. I think you best bet is to get into a track meet and see if you can somehow win the turnover battle by a large amount limiting our points. Lastly it looks like Ed Reed will be coming and feeling our biggest defensive weakness. Cant wait to see that.

    Has everyone forgotten that we have Kevin Walter who was with the Texans offense the last 6 years?? Gregg and Jerry better hammer him for some info...maybe that will help out. There's a reason we kept him i think ;)

    You won't run on us.

    We'll probably knock out Schaub. That's not smack that's historical Titans defense. Can't even remember of all of the names of Texans QB's we've destroyed.

    The passing game is what gives you the edge though. The 2 headed whatever you called those scrubs will not be running on us this Sunday.


    I don't think it'll be a track meet at all. I think we're more than capable of getting pressure. Our defense is young and continuing to grow and come together. Haven't reached our ceiling at all.
