Hey do yall remember last year when the Texans started 0-4, the Titan fans would come in here and remind us we were 0-4? Well....where are those guys now? hmmmmm I saw Bullock made a post last week, but outside of him where are all those Titan fans that are loyal to their 50 years of tradition...must be blanking this year out along with those years in Houston.

I am calling you out...you guys are cowards...beat us when we are down but when your team is down you make like a tooth in a Tennesean mouth..you disappear. From this point on yall have no credibility on here. (Bullock being the exception)

and you guys wonder why we think yall are frontrunners.....well...here is your sign.

they have 2 games against the colts and pats staring them in the face. It looks like 0-6 is a real possibility. Leave them be. It must be hard going from playoffs to detroit lions in one offseason.

The Titans have lost a lot of pass rush with Haynesworth gone and for some reason Fisher refuses to adapt and use blitzes. As such, they are being absolutely picked apart in the passing game. 350 yards and 3 TDs to the Jags with 3 probowlers in your secondary? Ouch

The funny thing is Steeler fans were saying they would be cursed for dissing the Towel. Now it looks like some Titans fans are starting to take that seriously.

Just think, they already have the Bud curse going for them, which I knew would be in full force because they broke out the oil derricks this season. On top of that they have the Towel thing.

There are two threads discussing curses...lol.

Well, there was an 0-4 team in the past that made it to the playoffs, only to choke after they got everyone's hopes up. So your season may not be ended just yet. They may have further misery in store for you.

If you are referring to the 93 Oilers they were actually 1-4 before they went on the winning streak. They were never 0-4. IIRC I think they went 1-1 or 1-2 before getting to 1-4.

The only team to ever make the playoffs after starting 0-4 are the 92 Chargers.

I dont go out of my way to do so. and I find it hard to believe that all of the Titan fans suddenly became busy or lost the website location. I mean come on guys I have watched these guys preach at us how loyal they were and how they always supported their team....well Titan fans (Toronto, Bipolar, Bailing Arrow.) show us your loyalty.

That was my point last year...trash talk fine but going out of your way to make other fans feel bad. not cool.

I agree with you. :clap:

The Titans fans who came over here and ran their mouths to us always made me mad. If they talked football, I was OK. But so many times on here, they were really just making snide little spiteful comments. They might even make a good "football" post, but then they would insert some smack'ish statement or comment within the post. Just to give us a little dig. To pour salt onto the wound.

I have not posted on their board. And will never post on their board. I get the satisfaction of knowing that the environment on their board (amongst themselves) is probably chaotic and disgruntled. My joy is found in that they have been taken down a notch, and now THEY have to gripe and whine and be distracted from happiness. That might be a poor way for me to look at it, and it might be characterless by some people's standards. But this is just a hobby. I can take joy in their calamity because it's not like I am wishing bad things on their jobs or family life or anything.

The old "I don't have anything nice to say, so I keep my mouth shut" line of wisdom applies here, at least for me.

I wouldn't go and do to them what some of them have come here and done to us. Does me restraining myself from going over there win me any points with them? No. But I'm doing it as a principle. So that when those meatheads come here and start flaming us, I can flame them right back and say "I don't go to your house and take a dump on your furniture. Don't do it here in MY house."

You kick a man enough times when he's down you give him an incentive to get up and when he GETS UP...he'll want to respond to the kicks you gave him. Let the Titans fans grieve, and when they get back up THEN we can kick em.

When the Colts had a stranglehold on the division, smack-talking Titans fans were nowhere to be found on the boards I'd frequent.

Last year, they were insufferable.

This year, nary a peep.

That happens with fans from most every team, but it's bad form. If you're going to dish it out, you'd better be able to take it in return.

Yes the Titans are a steaming pile right now and I don't expect that to change for at least a couple seasons. The Colts will most likely beat us down and then off to the pats which unless they forget they are playing on Sunday will bury our heads in the mud.

Everyone's talking about losing Albert Haynesworth but, I got to wonder if the biggest impact really was losing Schwartz to be coach of the Lions. Also looks like Kerry Collins is rounding back to form.

Has to hurt that your former DC went to a team that lost every game last year, and still managed to win one before a team that finished 13-3 last year. I will say though that Kenny Britt looks like a good player though.

Didn't Antwan Odom play for the Titans last year ? Never mind he last year was 2007 .

To me the Titans were a team that if they had 7 talent , they play as a 9 . This year they lost that intangible and the talent level dropped . It may have happened when the Texans decided to hit the bully back and beat them .

:voodoo: :spin:

You're going to blame all this on Collins, though?

The reason he was good last year is he wasn't asked to do much. This has been recognized. I'm sure he would do just fine if he wasn't asked to win a shootout or bring us back from more than a score, which has been asked of him 3 times thus far. Fact is, he's not that kind of QB anymore, nothing has changed from last year to now. The defense is killer, the offense didn't get worse.

A lot of things go into the offense, for example. There were two times yesterday Heimerdinger called a run up the middle on 3rd and long... there's two 3 and outs. Once he ran a a little flare to a WR on 3rd and long, again, nothing. Not that Collins would have made that play, but he wasn't given much of a chance.

The sad thing is, Collins still gives us the best chance to win; and he's not able to do what we ask of him now.

Not sure how you don't see that, unless you're just looking at the box score each week.

Thankful as hell I got two kids that are keeping me so busy on weekends that I have missed two and a half games live. I should give them an extra hug for helping me avoid watching this shit.

I'm stunned at the falloff - it's basically like the team shut down after the Ravens beat them in the playoffs and the hangover has not left the dressing room; worse is there is a complete void of leadership imploring the team to move on already.

I think the debacle yesterday in Hagland was the wakeup call. Several veterans are earning themselves new destinations this upcoming off-season.

Like Hervoyel pointed out, they are now 3 times cursed.

The curse moved to Tennessee with Bud...and when they finally seemed to be shaking the curse, they decided to stomp on the Terrible Towel and show no class. They could have been good sports and shown respect for a longtime respected adversary, but they decided to make it all about them.

It really surprised me to see Bulluck engaging in those shenanigans but that guy may have hit 'the wall'. It looks like age is catching up to him especially as it relates to pass coverage.

The Titans may go hunting for draft picks and it would probably best serve them to give VY a chance if things dont turn around. Remember that they have to either cut VY or pay him huge option year at the end of this season.

If you don't think someone is going to give him a shot, you are fooling yourself. There are more quality QBs in this league than ever before, but there are still some teams searching.

To the Titan followers here I cannot find it in me to say I feel sorry for y'all. However I can lend a lil' insight. If Bud Adams follows suit to the way he has always done things expect the payroll to shrink as well as the talent pool over there.

Last year's Titans season was all about their dominant defense. They didn't have to do much on offense.

If they don't have dominant D, they don't have jack. The players say that they miss Schwartz. Clearly they miss Haynesworth because though they get some sacks, they aren't being able to do everything that they like to do with rushing just four. And their secondary in my opinion has always been a bit overrated--QBs didn't have enough time to be accurate in previous seasons. This season QBs have more time, and they are suffering from injuries on the backend.

If their D can't hold up their end of the bargain, that Titans team is in trouble because their offense is offensive.

Should be interesting to see what they can do against the Colts.

And yeah, do NOT mess with Myron Cope.

Honestly how do you consider yourself an analyst. The comments about Haynsworth show such a lack of research I can not even tell you. In 5 games the guy has been injured ... produced only one sack and shows a lack of the penetration that he had when he was looking for his money. EVERY Titans fan saw this. Even ESPN analyst are marking him as the biggest bust on FA this season but you peg our losing streak on the lack of a guy who half arses plays and sits on the field? Laughable ...

Not sure how a Texans fan can even talk about a secondary since flaming trash can would cover better then what the Texans offer but to call the highest turn over secondary "over rated" again go back to playing with dolls because this comments makes no sense. Yeah we have sucked this season but that is more on the coaching and poor position by play calling then actually talent.

Yes our D needs to step up but at least call it as you see it. If you drop all of our LBs into zone on the 5 your are going to get chewed apart. You play off of some of the best WRs by 10 yards and can not get pressure then your are going to get scorched.

I don't mean to be harsh but calling our loses on the lack of a guy who is a slug really shows a lack of research and a lack of even watching the games IMO.

Yes our D needs to step up but at least call it as you see it. If you drop all of our LBs into zone on the 5 your are going to get chewed apart. You play off of some of the best WRs by 10 yards and can not get pressure then your are going to get scorched.

I don't mean to be harsh but calling our loses on the lack of a guy who is a slug really shows a lack of research and a lack of even watching the games IMO.

Texans Chick was saying the Titans miss that dominant DT they had. How does what he is doing this season have any relevance to the fact that the Titans aren't getting the same penetration they had last season because they don't have the same pieces in place? They obviously miss the dominant Fat Albert not the one who is busting with the Skins this season. Almost everybody sucks when they go to DC.

Also a Texans fan can't make an observation just because their team has the same issue?? If anything we should really know what a sucky secondary looks like because we see one ourselves every week. However that being said when the Texans played the Titans the Titans secondary sucked just a little bit more.

The DTs have not been the issue. They are actually playing well and keeping the run game contained. We are not getting pressure from the outside. Our play calling on D is atrocious to say the least.

Our secondary again looks horrible because of play calling. We are out of position on every play and drop into zone. It honestly makes no sense. Cecil was obviously not ready for the job and if he does not right the ship in the next game or so he will be unemployed at the end of the season.

You can not let the other team walk down the field on you ever single opening drive. It shows your play scheming was poor and you did not prepare for the game.

might be a little difference when one guy can consistently command a double team (i.e. Fat Albert) and still get pressure up the middle and with two guys getting some pressure, meanwhile the doubled player becomes KVB or Kearse

I might be wrong. from what I have seen from the Titans (limited) is that they aren't collapsing the pocket and the Qb has time to step up and make the throw.. Haynesworth took some of that away

I thought that secondary was overrated last year

I don't understand how there have been no changes schematically on defense. Teams have been having beating them for the same reasons all season but nothing changes. Its very telling when Garrard tops 300 on you, so its not just good QB play. Brady will have an absolute field day and probably won't get touched.

How many yards did KVB give up on breathing near Manning. The ref'ing was silly in that game. On the second TD which basically buried us the refs gave up 3x15 yard penatlies and Manning never even touched the turf.

Man I can't believe I'm dumping on Fish this much, but I guess the last two weeks have done me in.

Memphis/Nashville is OVER. He's had stability for years, and is de facto in charge of all personnel decisions for the last several years. This team, as constructed, is his, minus VY maybe being stuffed down his throat by Bud.

I admire what he did during the mid 90s, but it's frigging 2009 now. The tune is old, and clearly so is his message, because that team sure isn't listening anymore.

Fan of the team since 1978 when I lived in Houston sir. After 15+ years of Fish I'm ready to move on. Seeing as how Fish hired the DC and helped ruin Mr. Wonderlic (I never cared about VY either way to be honest, I just want to win), plus the playoff failure last season with a team that should have won it all?

I've done the Fisher dance for 10 years and dealt with the ups and downs, but he NEVER had a team play this stupid or outright quit on him (adds Jevon Kearse now). The character of team speaks for itself, specifically the lack of it and again this reflects on the man that is directly responsible for building 98% of the team - minus VY, which was forced on him as we all know.

Hope that answers your question. As for VY? I doubt it matters, but with the season in the toilet (I feel OK saying this at 0-5, 0-3 in the AFC South and 0-5 in the AFC), why the hell not try and see what he does? Not like it can get any worse.

There is always someone better - I'm sorry but the more I talk about this the more sure I feel - if Fisher had gotten us ring(s) yes it's a no doubter. At the end of the day there are NONE, and the team is now in a frigging death spiral. But that's not why I am becoming anti-Fisher - it's the team quitting on him and the unreal lack of discipline and character. That is directly accountable on Fisher's leadership. And at 0-5 (with NE on tap) and outscored 68-26 the last two weeks, we're already getting laughed at, don't you think?

Its not that I don't appreciate the job Fisher has done. I appreciate not being the Detroit Lions or Raiders. That being said, I just don't see us winning a championship with him at the helm. If it couldn't happen last year, 1999-2000 or 2003-2004, when the hell is it going to happen?

I don't know what happened in every market, but geez that is embarrassing if the network gives up on you just after half time. There I was wanting to watch the bbeat down continue and then I realized this was even more demeaning.

It was a network decision by CBS actually. Every market, except the Boston and Nashville markets, switched to the Bills at Jets game.

What's your honest opinion of what's going on Blazing Arrow? What do most of your team's fans think? Do you guys blame the coaching or the players for the downfall? It sure is weird how fast it all fell apart. I never saw this coming and I honestly think it's just a fluke. (not the 59-0...that wasn't a fluke, that was a "you're not my real kid" kind of ass beating)

I've never actually been a big Jeff Fisher fan. I think he's a good coach, but I just don't think he's capable of winning a SB. That said, I think it's pretty funny how Tacks fans thought the guy was great last year when they were winning 13 games, pushing all the right buttons, handling the VY saga well, and keeping the team's varied personalities in check, all while promoting aggressive play on the field.

Then suddenly, within the span of a few months, Fisher has suddenly forgotten how to coach, according to them.

For most of us Houston fans that felt betrayed by the Oilers exodus from our state it is much more personal (= much more enjoyable) than just watching a rival or team we grew up hating implode.

BTW, I can't believe Fisher's judgment in wearing that Colts jersey, especially now with everyone calling for his head.

So in one week he has promoted Houston (wearing Houston gear on the sidelines) and now Indianapolis. All he is lacking is Jacksonville and he will have covered the whole division.

Of course it was a charity event and for a good cause or whatever - but yeah, Jeff Fisher is a very smart guy. He knows the role the media plays in sports coverage, and he knew ahead of time this was going to get out. He's WAY too smart to think otherwise.

The other coaches and the players won't care, but I imagine Bud and the fans will be enraged.

Yep, quick check over at musiccitymiracles.com (http://www.musiccitymiracles.com) confirms - they're LIVID.

Just when you thought 0-6 and 59-0 couldn't get any uglier...

Also - interesting timing, right before the bye week. If Fisher wanted out, this would be the smartest time to pull a stunt like this since the team would have an extra week to make their next move. Just saying.

I 100% agree with this. If you are upset with someone about something, their jokes (no matter how funny) just aren't funny.

I take the other approach to all of this: This is no big deal.

Is he supposed to go into deep depression and wear a black arm band, and mourn this bad season? To me, he's showing that he's above the game.

He's saying that his life in football is beyond (a) being the Titans' head coach, and (b) having fun only if he's winning. If anything, he made me respect him for having the ability to relax a little.

Plus, he and the Colts are goooood buddies. One team laid down for the other in the last regular season game...easily ensuring a playoff spot instead of trying to make them earn it the hard way.

IIRC, the Braves were also involved in a lay-down game with some other team which screwed the Astros from a playoff spot.

Many folks say "it's just a game", which it is at it's core, but it's also a multi-billion dollar industry and part of professional sports which is the 6th largest industry in our economy.

While I can laugh at the Titans current plight, I wouldn't be happy to see our HC doing such a stunt during an 0-6 start and after a 59-0 ass kicking. Heck, by that point in the Texans 2-14 season, pink soap avatars were taking over and the "Fire Capers Club" was in full force. Titans fans are facing a bigger disappointment after a 13-3 season and a playoff appearance. That's a helluva' long fall.

I still don't understand one thing about the incident: what does wearing a division rival's jersey have to do with a charity event? He could have introduced Dungy without all this clown stuff, and to be honest, it's pandering to an audience in an act that can be perceived as betrayal, disrespect, and ridicule by some fans and players.

Bulluck53

People have talked on the radio and tv about him trying to boost the spirits of the crowd, in order to get more donations for the charity. It makes sense and Fish is a smart guy, I'm sure if thats the case he thought of that well in advance, even before the 59-0 drubbing. He is so arrogant he probably likes this attention, and in return is giving the charity even more pub.

I can understand why people don't like it, and why it is kind of a big deal. But I don't see a grown individual can actually be offended by it. Thats bizarre to me, its a game, its a business and he's using his status to get publicity for himself and this charity. This team hit rock bottom at 59-0, can't get much more of a laughing stock than that.

The crowd, in Nashville, laughed. I would imagine a lot of those people to be Titans fans.

First off. Titans suck this year and the Fisher thing is just off the charts hilarious. Take your medicine, Titans fan.

I have always been a big Fisher guy, but he needs to leave the 'real' comedy to comic geniuses like Gallagher and The Cable Guy. I bet he has a great sense of humor and I have seen it before, but this failed and I can't understand what he was thinking. Coaching football does not make you funny. I love Fish and hope this doesn't define him.

Maybe he is trying to get fired because he doesn't want to work for Adams and the Titans anymore. Maybe the whole McNair thing has gotten him kinda flustered and numb to the NFL. Would Fisher go so far as to do this to motivate his team? That would be some serious double-reverse ancient Jedi mind trick. One thing is for sure, if Bud fires Fisher you better prepare for some really crappy teams in Nashville.

I also think they need to start VY or cut him now. They aren't going to keep him next year unless he turns his entire game/career around with only 10 weeks left, so why keep him if he is so bad he isn't even worth giving a start when your 0-6 and circling the drain. It can't be helping team chemistry having your highest paid player do nothing for you. Remember, we had Carr for 5 years, we know how much it sucks to pay top$$ for garbage.

I also think they need to start VY or cut him now. They aren't going to keep him next year unless he turns his entire game/career around with only 10 weeks left, so why keep him if he is so bad he isn't even worth giving a start when your 0-6 and circling the drain. It can't be helping team chemistry having your highest paid player do nothing for you. Remember, we had Carr for 5 years, we know how much it sucks to pay top$$ for garbage.

agreed
I think if they had plans for VY , he would have started already a few week ago..
