    Do you mean 10-6 or 9-7? Makes a difference.

    That said- if the Colts lose tonight- which they should- we're still in good shape. Locker is back and looked good as the game went on- and we have the bye to retool. Defense wins championships- I'm not saying that we're a super bowl contender, but I wouldn't say we're a one and find playoff team. Reynaud needs to go, and munch needs to get these penalties under control. Locker looked mobile and on target, he came back way earlier than I'm sure anyone expected. If Greene can get back after the bye and stay healthy, I think we look good in the second half of our schedule.

    So deal with our shitty staff, hope we get our one and done trip to the playoffs, an extension for Munch, etc. Basically it is better to be at least relevant alot of the time than taking a chance at being elite. That was our Fisher-era mindset. "It could be worse" was the phrase of the day.

    Am I on Volnation.com? seriously?

    How many game manager head coaches have won Super Bowls? Over the last ten years?

    Tomlin? He was a DC at least and has an active role.

    I'd give you Coughlin but hell it took him 20+ years and two franchises to win a championship.

    Tired of this franchise being in that limbo area. Never really awful but far from elite. There has to be a change of culture around the franchise in order for a corner to be turned.

    Munch represents the same old Titans/Oilers mindset. It was an awful hire.

    I think I'm more pissed that I see a team with talent being squandered by a truly average at best coaching staff. It would be one thing if we were just awful and in straight rebuilding mode but we aren't. We have potential. We found a QB (seriously wrong on him), we finally have a good group of WR's, a good offensive line that is healthy, a defense that has come alive AFTER A COACHING CHANGE.

    I just think this team could be elite with a couple more pieces and a coach that can manage them.

    I'm not saying keep him for 5 more years, he has just made solid steps and is clearly not a Fisher clone.

    He just needs to hire a decent offensive coordinator and fire Bruce Matthews...

    BUT YOU KNOW HOW THIS FRANCHISE WORKS.

    Mild success is rewarded like you just won a Super Bowl in Nashville.

    A Super Bowl loss bought Fisher a decade!!!

    yea, see, I really don't think he is that far off.

    If he sits around this offseason with the same hires and doesn't go anywhere, then yea.

    Biting on the Read Option time after time after time after time is what got us beat today...

    Let Frank Gore run up the middle for 4 yards instead of Colin running on the edge for 20 yards.
