    Originally predicted this team being around 8-8 or 7-9.Without Britt if we pick up a decent WR,Hasselbeck keeps the passing game doing good and our defense keeps playing like we played the first three weks of the season then i can see us being 10-6.If the Titans keep passing the ball with success along with the defense playing like a top five unit then yes 10-6 is very reachable.

    Haven't you heard? The Texans already have the AFC slot in the Super Bowl locked down.

    When I looked at the schedule before the season I could see us going 12-4 or 11-5 (and that was with us splitting games with divisional foes)...REALISTICALLY I saw us being 10-6 again splitting divisional games..

    With Kenny Britt out...IDGAF I'm standing at 10-6.

    I'll be honest, I'm a little scared for the upcoming weeks. No Britt and virtually no CJ could kill us. Hasselbeck and the defense can only do so much.

    If Hass/D keeps playing well and CJ/WRs step up, we could easily win the AFC South.

    While Britt is certainly our best player, let's not forget that Hasselbeck got the ball to 8 different receivers in week 2 and 11 in week 3.

    Britt makes Hasselbeck's job easier, but at the end of the day Hasselbeck is still a ******* brilliant QB if he's on a half decent team.

    Wow...two consecutive wins and suddenly we are contending for the best record in the league...LOL!

    I will be real curious to see this thread in about two weeks. The next two games are going to be tough. Despite what everyone seems to think about the Steelers, they always improve as the season progresses, so I am not ready to say they are anywhere close to a sure W yet (especially in their stadium).

    At the beginning of the season I was seeing 6 wins at worst, 9 at best. With Britt I would have been willing to stretch that to 10 best case (assuming we get our act together with the run game). Now, however, I see us still at around 9 wins best case. If we keep floundering in the run game I see us at 6-7 wins.

    I still think that we come out of the season hot, and will have a good head of steam into next year though.

    Also, I still think that 9-7 can win this division...we are the weakest division in the league IMO at this point.

    As I stated above the first two records were my thoughts from initially looking at the schedule...and I also put what my realistic (not so optimistic thought was) from before the season started.

    In no way will 10-6 be competing for the best record in the league :lol:

    Cleveland in my mind is still an obvious W for this team (even w/o Britt). I will stand by my 10-6 prediction until we lose our seventh game.

    NFC West is easily the weakest division.

    No one said 10-6 is competing for the best record...however, 13-3 would be.

    NFC West is weak, agree, but lets not have any illusions about our division this year. Right now the Cows are in 1st....the COWS. Not too pretty. I hope I am wrong, but I think whoever comes out of this division is pretty much one and done in the postseason, BUT, you never know.

    Yes we are all Titans fans and chit on the 'cows', but they are a very respectable team. And I do believe you will be wrong about the one and done...unless it is the cows :brow:

    Steelers are having the same problem we're having. Terrible OLine plays. It will derail even a very talented team like Pitt when they're OLine can't block
