    I'm glad we get no love. I think it just puts a chip on our teams shoulder. People will pay attention when we start knocking players out.

    If we lose, we get a new coach (and staff) and it is likely that we will get a new QB.
    If we win, we WIN.

    Either way, we ultimately win.

    I just fear that we will become the next Cleveland, Jacksonville, Oakland, or Buffalo.. cycling through coach/QB after coach/QB, never finding the right fit.

    Just think about all that loser mentality you people are putting out there. God, it's a wonder we don't just fold up before the season even starts. And if Vegas is as good as you all seem to think, then don't you think you should be consulting them on every decision you make in life?

    Vegas does not predict outcomes people . . . they predict human behavior. The predict that most people will bet the Titans to lose games and that makes sense because they were 6-10 last year. If more people thought the titans had improved, then they would raise the mark to get more money on both sides. This is the biggest mistake people make about Vegas--they simply predict people and adjust to people . . . they don't predict real outcomes.

    Here's the deal fellas. We have greatly I'm proved our roster...RW has done a really good job. BUT, we're pretty much coming from one of the worst rosters in the league. I think we would all agree that if we're able to stay relatively healthy we probably have a good shot at the playoffs.

    BUT, and that's a BIG BUT, our roster is still very thin at some key positions, and vulnerable at others. Even though we're moving in the right direction, we still need a few more years to truly solidify our roster.

    Just a few things that I think we can all agree upon right off the bat are:

    1). What if Jake doesn't improve? I hope he will, and actually have faith in him. But, our offense sorta hinges upon him "managing the game" this year. Fitzpatrick is a good backup...but he isn't the franchise QB we need.

    2). What if Colin Mac gets injured? We don't have a solid #2 behind him, and Colin hasn't exactly proven to be durable. That's a pretty dang important part of a defense.

    3). Our DL has improved, BUT we don't have a true dominate pass rush DE or a beast dominating the middle. We're better, but not where we need to be.

    We're getting there with Webster. I hope they keep him around for a while, but there are still a lot of IF's for this season.
