    What do people think of the win streak?

    I thought it was all great, but a guy on foxsport and his dvoa ratings said the win streak is comparable to that of Miami's last season, and where has that got them this season?

    But really, they had an aging QB in Rosenfals and they gambled with a franchise QB in Culpepper. They chose Ronnie Brown in the first round who has not really done much of anything in terms of being an every down back and Chris Chambers hasn't had the pro-bowl numbers he had from a year ago. Lets not forget that the miami team is old, whilst we are one of the youngest teams in the league.

    It's a bit worrying but the team is going to grow together, which is only a good thing.

    Well he is right that it doesn't mean anything come next year in terms of how well we're going to play. What you hope for though is that it has a mental impact on the players and will motivate them to work extra hard in the offseason and play 100% from the very start of the season.

    I only see us getting better next year. With lots of cap room,a good draft, and a quarterback that will be even better next year I see us as going 10-6 or better.

    I think the way many of these games are being won show a team on the rise but one no where close to what it needs to be in order to win a Super Bowl.

    If the Titans can address the defense by plugging in some talent in key areas, I think they could make a serious playoff run a year earlier than most (including myself) thought they could.

    My feet are firmly on the ground about where we are.

    Our recent streak of wins has been awesome but in none of our victories have we looked convincing as a 'complete' team.

    We've still got a lot of holes to fill & the chemistry the team has now is an intangible that might not carry over into next season.

    IMO a crucial thing that our future depends on is that our O line looks good . Mawae is the key right now & we need to have an understudy for him,aprt from that we look set for a while.

    As long as we see defensive upgrades there's no reason why we can't be a contender next year.

    IMO it is hard to compare what Miami did last year to what the Titans have done this year. Sure Miami won 6 in a row (after being humiliated by Cleveland 22-0) but the only quality win was against SD in that stretch and SD wasn't near as good as they are this year. In that streak Miami beat Oak, Buff, SD, Jets, TN and NE. NE didn't even play their starters in their game. The Titans on the other hand started their streak after a tough one point loss to one of the best teams in the AFC, Baltimore, and beat a number of teams either playoff bound or potential playoff teams: Phily, Giants, Indy, Jags and Buff. The only light game on the schedule during that stretch was Houston.

    It's also worth mentioning that, in terms of future prospects, the Titans have two big advantages over the 2005 Dolphins:

    1) Unlike last year's Dolphins, the Titans' QB situation is very much settled; in fact, it's quickly become one of the team's strengths, and it's only getting better.

    2) Jeff Fisher > Nick Saban

    Yes. We have more consistency in key areas - LB, OL, QB, depth at RB, improvement in the secondary. We have more positives than the 2005 Dolphins. Plus, we are much younger than they are.

    I'm not worried at all. Why should we be worried when Vince Young is our QB?
