    Luckiest team in the league. Take away our redzone turnovers and this is a 2-5 team. That's okay, because I'll take lucky over good anyday.

    Take away the good plays and every team in the NFL is 0-7. That's not an argument. You make your own luck. Players had to force those fumbles and intercept those passes.

    Despite the 0-6 start last year and certainly some blame to the coaches the staff also should be credited for righting the ship. It works both ways and after the 59-0 beating at NE most teams go in the tank and end up with a top 10 pick in the draft. This team was in the fight right to the end of the season.

    As for what the talking heads say you have to take it with a grain of salt for the most part but these guys aren't complete idiots as some make them out to be. They have some understanding of the game. I think they are accurate saying this team is mentally tough right now and giving Fisher credit is appropriate. No sense in living in the past. Right now this team is showing us it has the right stuff like it did in 2008. The good part is there is still room to improve. Cecil is over the hump with the defense and we have other weapons on offense to where CJ doesn't have to carry them. If the OL can step up the sky is the limit. STs are vastly improved over last eyar as well. It is a well rounded, well coached team without any significant weaknesses.

    Mainly because Bud Adams forced Fisher to play VY.

    Same crap that always happens when the Titans get a little limelight.

    Some clueless hack that nevers sees us play rolls out the old Fisher ass kissing carpet.

    It's a self perpetuating storyline because no media gives us enough airtime to realise that Fishers flaws are equal his good points.

    Fisher is a .500 coach who occasionally punches above his weight.

    That's good work, Einstein. It's unfortunate that you completely missed the point, but that will surely be overlooked when you get the Nobel Prize for Mathematics.

    Fisher is like God.

    No one pays attention to the more awful things he does- but as soon as something goes well, ESPN is there to hype him up.

    Mentally tough? Doesnt this team average more penalties than any other in the NFL? (it's close to the top at least)... that's not mentally tough.

    Fisher isn't god yet. He is in Pre-God mode right now just like Bill Cowher used to be. Once Jeff gets that ring..... Move over Vince Lombardi!!
