    With all the doom and gloom these past few months (and admittedly I've been among the most pessimistic), I figured we could use a positive thread around here. So what's the one, or main, thing about our team that gives you hope for 2013 and beyond?

    For me it's most definitely our linebacker group. That's the one area I can point to and say "We're on the right track and the future is bright". We have three young guys with tons of potential. All three have shown flashes of greatness. McCarthy needs to stay healthy, obviously. But even if one of the three completely drops off the face of the earth, we're still left with a pretty beastly LB group if the other two continue to develop and don't turn out to be just flashes in the pan.

    And honestly, I don't see any way that 1 of the 3 doesn't turn out to be a big time playmaker for years to come. We've gotta get this defense turned around. And looking at the bright side, at least we appear set within that one unit. If we get a legit safety and a consistent playmaker on the DL, our defense will be well on their way (of course that's easier said than done).

    I think you're right, our LB corps have the brightest future right now. Ayers and brown seem to be a nice 1-2 punch. I still think we need another MLB. Could you imagine Te'o in the middle of this defense??? Not taking anything away from McCarthy but I have my doubts tat he's going to stay healthy.

    Whoops, read the thread wrong. I thought its what you wanted most for the future...

    What gives me hope is my belief that we have a lot of talent on this team. If we can get someone to lead them, whether it be a coach or player (insert F'in Franchise QB lol), I know we can be great....

    What makes me optimistic? The fact that I am about 65 years younger than Bud Adams ... barring my untimely death, I should see plenty of 'post Bud era' Titans.

    Yeah if Te'o was there at 10, I'd be all for it. But I can't see him sliding that far and it's doubtful we'd trade up for a LB.

    I would say the Linebackers as well, but that's not enough to give me any hope for the team as a whole. As long as this team is being run into the ground by our coaches, there is no hope. I did have hope for this team when our coaches were performing so poorly that I just knew they would be fired. Now that it looks like they are staying I feel worse than ever about the state of the team and it's future. The only hope I see is that Munch will keep this pathetic staff together and we will be so pathetic next year, that Bud will clean house mid season. That's not realistic though. Nothing is realistic at this point. It's like the Titans are stuck in a parallel universe where everyone does the exact opposite of what we, in the real world, think they should do.

    So yeah, there's my hope for the future. That's about as positive as I can be right now.

    I read a mock earlier that had Star and Teo both falling out of the top 10 ... Probably not gonna happen, but it would be sweet if we had our pick of the 2

    One thing that gives me hope is we don't have massive D R A M A between the head coach and QB and we don't have thug losers like Pacman on our team causing trouble.

    I mean I guess Kenny but he is more pacman-lite.


    So I'm hopeful that the franchise is heading in a direction of professionals that focus on football as a career instead of a bunch of thugs and drama queens.
