    Was just taking a look at some things that we showed improvement in... one actually surprised me.
    2015 vs 2016
    Points scored 299/381. Improvement by over 5 points a game.
    we gained 47 yds a game more this year than last.
    Points allowed (as bad as our defense was, this surprised me) 423/378. An improvement of 2.8 points a game.
    We gave up more yards per game this season by 15.

    So all in all we gained almost 8 points a game. If we can get that defense shored up I expect next season to be much better. Full disclosure, I only expected 6 maybe 7 wins this year. Pleasantly surprised that we were in it until week 16. Here's to winning the division and a home playoff game next year.

    I like the way the team it's heading, especially with the picks we have and the guy calling the shots. This year exceeded my expectations, next year I fully expect the Titans to win the division.

    The fact articles like this are now being written is a sign of improvement as well

    Titans could be a surprise Super Bowl-caliber team in 2017

    If we address our secondary, I like our chances. Our offense is only going to get better with mariota growing. Just need to take care of the DBs(other spots on D could help) and maybe punt returner/kick returner.

    Cb and ilb are the only 2 position we absolutely need to address this offseason. We could use players at other positions as well, but those additions need to be game changers. With a slight improvement at ilb and a complete overhaul of our cbs (thier so bad literally any cbs will be an improvement), this is a 10 win team, easily. With a few game changers, we are a 11 or 12 win team. I really like the direction we are headed.

    Apparently Amy thinks so, she is raising ticket prices again! Amy your going to raise the prices on us again at least spend to the cap and stop pocketing that EXTRA 30 million before you raise the prices on us.

    any team in the world would likely raise ticket prices after a 6 game win increase truthfully.

    The problem I have is not spending to the cap but raising prices. The 30 million extra going in her pocket should more than offset any need to raise ticket prices. Also we are having trouble filling the stadium, raising prices is just stupid.

    Well I get that I also noticed the upgrades at the stadium and practice facilities... it's not all going in her pocket. To be a first rate organization, you need first rate facilities and we all know they were lagging.
