    This loss WAS a big deal. At least where we are headed with playoff potential.

    Btw I'm fukin tired of the keep hammering the run and hope to break the big one gameplay. Our O-line just isn't playing that we'll

    The loss sucked. The loss certainly could end up having playoff implications. However, we're still squarely in the mix folks. Sure a win would've been nice. But it's week freaking FIVE. Lots of football left. Not just for the Titans but for every other team as well. Teams will fall. Teams will rise.

    Way I see it we're playing very solid football week in and week out. Perfect? No. But we've been in every single game. And we had a very real opportunity to knock off an undefeated team with the #1 defense in the league.... with our BACKUP QB at the helm. No shame in that loss today. Especially considering we spotted them 7 points to start the game.

    We fans are a fickle bunch. A week ago everyone's talking about how the Colts aren't anything special now we're conceding the division to them.

    Loss is bad because...

    1. We really should've won this game
    2. We play 2 top teams now, despite what their records may be at this point

    I don't like to chalk up automatic L's but we're looking at 3-4 going into our bye since we couldn't beat KC. Looking at our schedule after the bye:

    at STL: Should win, regardless of QB. A little worried we rush Locker back and he plays like crap and we somehow lose this game. Plus Rams will be pretty motivated. Not a sure W anymore imo
    JAX: Win
    IND: They look to be for real now, it is a home primetime game so maybe we can pull out the win.
    at OAK: Win
    at IND: leaning more of a L
    at DEN: A loss for the team and my liver that day
    ARI: Win
    at JAX: If we split with them again...but we won't. W.
    HOU: Good feeling about this one, W.

    We can still get 10 wins out of this team. Problem is, we'll probably need to win the division to get a playoff spot so we have to at least split with the Colts. We also don't know how Locker will play after his injury, could be the same or worse or even re-injured. I'll go ahead and give a 9-7 prediction assuming we split the STL and home IND game.

    the vols fans precious little peyton didn't win the SB that yr for them it was dominic rhodes and their defense that finally showed up.. I'm a vols fan but have never like manning, he never beat florida, never won a NC and didn't even win the heisman. He's all about statistics and has never been a big game QB

    Good breakdown. I agree. We SUCKED big time last year and almost beat Indy. This year we are decent. And what happened to Houston, they look bad.

    It's still too early to predict Wild Cards imo.

    I think we will steal one of these next 2 before the bye, but let's play it worst-case style. We lose them both, go into the by 3-4. I still see 7 wins after the bye to end up 10-6.

    @Rams
    vs Jags
    vs Colts
    @Raiders
    vs Cardinals
    @Jags
    vs Texans

    Which of these do we lose? Colts and Texans are the only ones up for debate, in my mind. We already proved we can beat the Texans. I think our D is good enough to split with the Colts this year, too. 10-6 ... probably not good enough to win the division. That will put us in a battle with Bengals, Chiefs, Dolphins and Texans/Colts for the 2 Wild Card spots.

    I thought we ran battle 2 times? I know we tried a lob to walker 1 time, but Fitz stumbled on the way back and messed the play up.
