    Let's talk the upcoming game here.

    Some background: Vikings lead the series 7-4. In their last meeting, the Titans won 30-17 (9/28/08).

    I'm surprisingly optimistic about the game. I just don't think the Vikings are as good as their record indicates. That said, they're certainly a better team than we are right now. But I think they're due for a letdown.

    I expect CJ and the run game to look much more like they did weeks 1-3 than the week 4 version. Vikings are tough up front and we all know about our scrub OL. If we're going to come away with the victory we're going to need a sharp, relatively mistake-free game from Hasselbeck. And of course our D will have to at least look like a professional squad.

    I don't know why and I'm probably a fool for believing at this point, but I think we get it done this Sunday.

    I am a long time FSU fan the key to the game is to make ponder uncomfortable nobody has done that he will make a mistake if he feels the heat all day. McCarthy playing will be huge

    They definitely aren't as good as their record... they lost to the Colts.

    I still say we lose, and I hate to be that guy, but I think Hasselbeck throws 3 picks (another pick 6) and Harvin takes one to the house on us.

    I'll be happy if our scrub d keeps them below 30 points. McCarthy being back should really help the run D. I predict Nate having a big day, but we lose 27-24. Hope I'm wrong

    i'm hoping Gray backs up his talk by calling a more aggressive game. but i'd take the over in any points bet.

    No game on FOX here during the Titans game. However English Premier League Soccer will be on FOX then and that's football, Newcastle vs Manchester.
