I hope that Ngata tears it up at 0/1-technique. The guy's a monster and would even be a test for Mawae.

Same here Herv! One and done, and old BUD can hang up his rug for one more year! I'm just not sure my stomach can tolerate watching this game. Think I'll just go take a nap, have to work tonight anyway. Can't afford a new TV, and I just might shoot mine if the Raven's decide to hand this one over.

I made a similar projection last year during the combine. I saw Joe Flacco as a guy you could groom a couple years on the bench (similar to Schaub) having size, accuracy & arm strength (as Schaub) then become your franchise QB. guess he's a couple years ahead of schedule :)

Ravens are lucky to be tied. Besides the big play for the TD, they haven't done much on offense. Their D is, for the most part, getting outplayed by the Titans offense.

Titans outplayed the Ravens by quite a bit. Ravens couldn't move the ball at all while Titans moved it quite easily. If it wasn't for the fumbles, this would have been a 24-10 game. But I am not complaining!!!!

Yeah those TO's were easily the difference. The Ravens play calling was weak to me though. Out of all of their big plays were when they threw the ball down the field and let the WR's make the athletic plays. They didn't do that enough. They kept trying to pound the ball with no holes. They should have tried to run the ball by Screen Pass plays more and passed more in general.

You got to give great credit to the Ravens though, because those TO's that you're talking about are just typical plays from the Ravens. That is what they do. I'd love to see the Ravens go to the SB again this year.

It wasn't his fault..it's the turnovers that cost them this game. I mean the TE has the ball and fumbles on the what 3 yard line? That's not his fault. And bonehead White fumbling isn't his fault either.

The Ravens were prime pickings with all those penalities too...

gtexan02
01-10-2009, 08:27 PM
I've got to confess something. I was a little disappointed to see the Titans lose today. I was cheering for the Ravens, but I'm still a little disappointed. Heres why.

1. If Tenn had gone to the superbowl, it'd be cool to say we were the last team to beat them (in a meaningful game).

2. Its nice to see our division get some respect, and having contenders is a good way to do it. AFC South doesn't look so hot when you go 0-2 in the playoffs

3. The Ravens played a dirty game. That Ed Reed hit on CJ sort of turned out to be the play of the game. If hadn't gotten hurt, they probably would have won. He was averaging 6+ ypc. That was a very cheap shot

4. All the bad calls went in the Ravens favor. The delay of game. The shoulda-been-safety. I hate to see playoff games decided by the officials

Anyway, I'm happy that Bud Adams won't get a ring. I'm glad VY won't get one for sitting on the sidelines. But that being said, I don't like the way the Raven's won today.

I've always said I'm a Titans ma 1st, Texans 2nd. It was a lttle disapointing to lose that game today. When it was a ie game at the hlf, I had a bad feling about the game. The white fumbe before the half and the crumpler fumble was bad. Something else I've noticedd. the oilers/titans are 0-fer when they have a bye week. Montana got them 1 yr ad the ravens 2 times.

It wasn't his fault..it's the turnovers that cost them this game. I mean the TE has the ball and fumbles on the what 3 yard line? That's not his fault. And bonehead White fumbling isn't his fault either.

The Ravens were prime pickings with all those penalities too...

I agree that it wasn't really his fault, but he also had an INT that was his fault.

My point and prediction on Collins all year long has been this. He might be able to make some plays and manage the game really well. He's done that all season. But when it comes to crunch time and Collins playing against a top defense in the 4th quarter I just didn't have confidence in him in the playoffs. The intensity is so much higher and he just isn't one of those QB's that can really make the HUGE plays or the "WOW" plays where you think only Collins could have made that play and no one else. He is just to one dimensional.

Flacco to me even as a rookie has more of "IT" factor than Collins has. Flacco may be inconsistent, but he just seems to make BIG plays here and there and when his team needs them. I think the Ravens coach should have let Flacco loose more in that game and their offense would have done a little better.

You should have dumped them when they dumped you. This loss "being a little disappointing" is a HUGE understatement. This could/should have been their year however as always it ended in typical gut wrenching choking fashion. They were also even victimized by a horrible call which is part of the Bud Curse.

He just needs to get more acclimated to the NFL. One thing I noticed though was that he completed A LOT of deep balls this season. The Ravens need to get a deep threat for Flacco, because he can really hit those guys on deep routes.

The thing I've liked about Flacco all year long is his ability to execute on 3rd down plays. He has a lot of poise and doesn't get rattled at all. The minute you think he won't be making any plays on a drive, he consistently seems to surprise you.

I don't think there is any chance Fisher gets fired, but the QB situation is going to be a HUGE issue in TN this off-season. Collins is a FA. Before the game he said he was rejuvenated but he either wanted to start or retire--no more backup QB for him. He didn't lose the game today. How do they gracefully hand the keys back to VY?

I'm actually glad the Ravens won. BUT... I thought Flacco stepped on the end line in the end zone. That should have been a safety and would have made the game 10-9 and the Ravens would have had to kick to the Titans. That looked like a really bad call to me.

I wanted the Ravens to win too. I don't think Flacco stepped out of bounds in the end zone, and one of the networks (either CBS or Fox) showed a replay of it. You could see green grass between his foot & the white chalk of the end zone. It was 2 or 3 inches but it was clearly not a safety.

With the way the game played out probably the play of the game for the Ravens was the challenge by Harbaugh on the completion to Scaife that was overturned on review. It backed the Titans up 5 or 6 yards and made the FG attempt that much more difficult. Bironas missed it to the left.

Flacco didn't step out, it wasn't even close when you see that overhead endzone shot.

I've got to confess something. I was a little disappointed to see the Titans lose today. I was cheering for the Ravens, but I'm still a little disappointed. Heres why.

1. If Tenn had gone to the superbowl, it'd be cool to say we were the last team to beat them (in a meaningful game).

But at that cost? Not for me.

2. Its nice to see our division get some respect, and having contenders is a good way to do it. AFC South doesn't look so hot when you go 0-2 in the playoffs

See 1st answer

3. The Ravens played a dirty game. That Ed Reed hit on CJ sort of turned out to be the play of the game. If hadn't gotten hurt, they probably would have won. He was averaging 6+ ypc. That was a very cheap shot

Karma my good man, karma. Besides, it went both ways IMO

4. All the bad calls went in the Ravens favor. The delay of game. The shoulda-been-safety. I hate to see playoff games decided by the officials

There was no shoulda-been safety, the replay I saw from the back of the endzone clearly showed his foot was safely in the endzone. Agreed on the delay of game, that was pretty bad.

Anyway, I'm happy that Bud Adams won't get a ring. I'm glad VY won't get one for sitting on the sidelines. But that being said, I don't like the way the Raven's won today.

...and I'm not saying any of this to go against you in any negative way. I still wonder if I saw enough of the replay in the endzone to have an informed opinion because the replay froze at the point where they thought the controversy came from and presented the replay as proof he didn't step out, so I'm sort of taking their word for it there was nothing more to show. (This was postgame from JB and Co.)

Herv, I still think having a season like theirs and having "hope" is alot better than finding b.s. to be proud of in a .500 or losing season. Not the same

AND a bad call. AGAIN, I am not a Titan fan but you are either just a homer or blind to realize that a game winning drive was kept alive on a crucial 3rd down when a rule..that is black and white..was broken and the refs whiffed. It was a massive mistake. It added to the turnovers, penalties, etc..LIKE I SAID.

I'm going to be a dick for the first time in years on this board but if SOME Texans fans weren't delighted in the misfortunes of the Cowboys and Titans they wouldn't have crap to talk about.

Yes, it was a delay of game, but, you have to take into account the unknown factor. Who is to say that that still would not of been able to convert? Or, who is to say that they still convert the FG.

Was it a blown call, yes. Was it a game deciding call? No.

There are too many variables to take into account. Facts are 3 TO and a missed FG and giving up the first down on 3rd and 5, is what cost the Titans the game.

If you go in and take care of business like you should than things like this wont come back to bite you in the ass later.

What "b.s." are you talking about? I had "hope" for the Texans right up until they were eliminated from the playoffs just like any Titans fan had right up until the end of the game today.

I didn't mean to raise hackles but I've never bought the fact that "wait until next year" applies to all but the SB winner. I've been here years and came here being a Cowboy fan and trying to become a good secondary Texans fan. I think I've done a good job. But I think it is "b.s" when people make excuses for the team, the schedule, the injuries, etc to justify still not getting over the hump. I'd rather be in the playoffs and fail then on the outside looking in...that is all. Sorry of I offended.

You are right..they may have converted 3rd and 10...I just wanted to see it and not think about it. But we agree on one thing...3 TOs inside the 30 is killer...even 3 FG chances gives you the lead in all probability.

Yeah I HAVE to wait until next year but 9-7 isn't acceptable and I don't gloss it. I think they underachived and were heartless and I have always thought they should do better since the 70s. The difference is that if I don't see SB or a playoff run it sucks. I don't want to talk progress. That is what I want for the Texans but I always read an almost acceptance of 8-8 like it is OK. It's not OK at this point. I'd rather be crushed over a playoff rush than not matter.

I know I'm disliked being a Cowboy fan but I'm pissed the Titans lost. Sue me. They screwed themselves with turnovers. Maybe I'm a bitterman but I hate for great games to be decided by crap refs but it happens yearly. The delay of game and all just sours me on a great smash mouth game. That was 3rd down and huge. It wasn't just a split second. It was at least 2 seconds after hitting 0. So the Titans screwed up with the turnovers inside the 30 but that doesn't mean they deserve to get effed by the typical old cadaver refs.

It was a bad call plain and simple. Maybe they wouldn't have converted with another 5 yards, maybe so. We know for certain the Titans were -3 and you win about 2% of the time in the NFL with that stat.

I didn't mean to raise hackles but I've never bought the fact that "wait until next year" applies to all but the SB winner.

You have done a good job. I even grew up a Cowboys fan like you. I think your excuses rant is off base. Before the game the commentators noted most of the playoff teams were teams who had extremely low injuries, such as the Cards with 3 IR players. The Texans were the 1st team in NFL history to start their season with 4 playoff teams. Those are facts. Whether those facts count for nothing is an opinion. But bottom line, the Texans haven't succeeded yet. I see as many frustrated fans around here suggesting too many changes as I do folks making too many excuses with a wait til next year attitude.

With all due friendship and respect, Frog, I wonder what your thoughts would be of a team that you grew up loving left your city for BFE, USA and displayed Bob Lilly, Roger Staubach, etc...etc.. in their stadium "ring of honor." Boasted about "their own Tony Dorsett" and so on.

The whole thing is't right, I guess you have to live it to know the experience. There's more to it than that, but this example is one that, well, just isn't right. It tends to make you wish bad things on them and when they happen, you talk about it. (On our own board I might add)

However, I think I stepped in it here and I am sorry if I pissed some people off. That wasn't my intention...my main two points were

1) The Titans pretty much deserved a loss because of TOs but I hate seeing key moments screwed by refs and:

2) It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved........it is better to have been in the big dance and lost than to sit and find reasons why you can't get over the hump.

I'm sorry Frog but you're wrong about that.

"Wait till next year" is what you hear out of every single team that doesn't win the Super Bowl. The team that loses that game and it's fans start talking about "next year" the moment they lose that game. Once you're out then "Wait till next year" is pretty much universal.

Is it better to win than go .500 or lose?
Of course.
Is it better to make the playoffs than to not have made the playoffs?
Of course.

But we didn't make the playoffs and we didn't have a winning season so I'm taking a break from trying to find tidbits of news on our coaching hunt to enjoy the fact that the Tennessee Titans and their fans are saying to themselves "Wait till next year" and I see nothing wrong with that at all.

Nobody said I was satisfied with the 8-8 record of the Texans. What I think about the Titans loss today doesn't have anything to do with that.

What amazes me is that not one single person mentions the horrendous holding call that even the announcers commented on. It went the titans way, but that is ok because it went for the titans. Also on the series when the titans were backed up to the 2 yard line. On the second down run there was a holding that occurred in the end-zone. Which by rule would have been a safety against the titans. Refs blew calls on both sides as it always is.

Certainly, but the Texans missed out on the playoffs because they underachieved & quite frankly just didn't deserve a spot with our play. So to many seeing the Titans lose their first playoff game as a #1 seed is a bit of a consolation prize.


Sorry but as an outsider that has been here a bit I find it frustrating that there isn't more anger towards team progress. My bad. Enjoy the weekend

There certainly is a lot of anger in regards to the progress of this team, but you won't see it on a day like today when the Titans choke away their best shot at a SB in quite some time. It's similar to what I'd imagine a Cowboys fan might feel at seeing the Giants or Eagles choke away their chance at glory. Only this thing with the Titans is at another level with the organizations' history with Houston. It is tough for someone on the outside to see why such anger & resentment still festers in the hearts & minds of Texans fans. Until the Texans make that leap to becoming a playoff team this is all we are left with rooting against one of our most hated rivals. Perhaps over time as the Texans start making their own mark in the post-season some of this hatred for the Titans will lift, but who knows.

I'm not going to get into this about the oilers/titans quit on me and all this other stuff. I'm not a guy that eats,breathes, and dies if the team wins or loses. That doesn't make me any less of a fan as it does the guy that paints his face with the team colors. I just see it as competion, that's it. Neither the texans not the titans pay the weekly diesel bills of my trucks. I felt bad about the buffalo fiasco, but it wasn't like life or death.

As for the hate bud adams and all that stuff, we've been over that a million times before. The mayor took business and made it personal, bud founf someone that met his needs/price and left. Its all business and its no different in sports. I didn't want to see them leave, but it is what it is. I'm still a fan of that team, but I follow and have a strong following with the Texans. Just like the old blues singer say, its cheaper to keep her. It was cheaper to give bud the stadium and stay vs paying 600m for franchise fee and 300m for the stadium. Not to mention, how many winning teams have the titans had since their start? Its all gravy, I just hope the texans can get into the playoffs and play well.

This was a very tough loss, one of the worst in franchise history on the hurt meter, but if you are really a fan at heart, all you can do is let time heal it and look forward to next year. It's a great game, but also very cruel for 31 teams every year. It's disappointing to see the team on the field that looked clearly like the better team -- but find a way to lose it with mistakes.
