    Beat me to it.

    First half in a close game? Take the points.

    Why not run Battle 4 times in a row? I mean, surely ONE of those times we'll get in. The defense wouldn't expect it anyway.

    Why are people saying that Munch isn't providing any new info with this statement? We all assumed the run was designed to go up the middle. It was actually designed to go somewhere else but Battle ran the wrong way. Who knows how many other times something like this has happened? Maybe I'm missing something but this hasn't been discussed by anyone as far as I remember.

    The Captain Obvious comment I made was mostly in regards to the "Titans should have scored" part. Maybe that was the Insider's own words, but it reads as if Coach is saying that the Titans should have scored there. As if that's news.

    I was also making fun of Munchak saying that the one Battle run was well blocked. I'd have to watch it again to be sure, but I saw very little successful blocking on any of those 4 plays.The line looked to be going backwards to me.

    And in another Insider's thread on here he said that Turner hasn't been bad. Do any of us really believe that? Maybe that one play wasn't exactly his fault, but this whole O line has been really disappointing to me. And he's been one of the worst imo.

    Ah, I understand you now. Munch knows Turner is sucking now, all he's doing is using coach speak to avoid throwing his player under the bus. Anyone with eyeballs knows Turner is god awful.

    MMs praise carries zero clout

    QB sneak while getting no movement up front is not a good idea. And several times when we tried to run up the middle the movement was backwards, not forwards. If you want to sneak it, not out of that formation. I was thinking they might go 3 or 4 wides and try to sneak it...but no:(

    agreed, but point was too go into first down prepared too ram the ball down their throat.

    no huddling. Just get back up and do it again. Dont allow the D too get set. should have been snapping at like 34 seconds on the playclock.

    Yeah, when I saw the replay, I thought they were pulling to the right but Battle went straight ahead. Sometimes you pull as an influence block but you wouldn't do that on the goal line againsta a goal line D. I think Battle decided presnap he'd run up the middle and thru anything in his path and score if he had to but just couldn't.
