Default Are the 2013 Titans a play-off team?

Playoff transformation realistic?
Quote:
The Titans will open the 2013 season with what appears to be a far more talented roster than last year, thanks to an extremely aggressive approach to free agency and a new crop of draft picks.

But just how realistic is it to expect a 6-10 team – which is what the Titans were last year – to become a playoff squad the following season?

Well, here’s what recent history reveals: In the five-year span from 2007 through 2011, a total of 12 teams finished with 6-10 records. Of those 12 teams, four (33 percent) made the playoffs the following year.

It didn’t happen at all last year, but did occur three times as recently as two seasons ago, when Houston went from 6-10 in 2010 to 10-6 and the playoffs in 2011; Detroit went from 6-10 in 2010 to 10-6 and the playoffs in 2011; and San Francisco went from 6-10 in 2010 to 13-3 and the playoffs in 2011.

Seems like we aren't the only ones dealing with offseason injuries that aren't going as well as we'd hope.
Quote:
Missed opportunity
Justin Hunter made it to the field for the final day of minicamp, but not before the rookie from Tennessee missed most of the offseason work with a hamstring injury. The absence frustrated Hunter, his position coach and the Titans, although most everyone seemed willing to chalk it up to bad luck. The Titans expect the second-round pick to be ready for the start of training camp, when we’ll find out just how much the missed practice time hurt him.

So much for chemistry
After a season of constant change on the offensive line because of injuries, the offseason didn’t exactly pan out as the Titans hoped. Veteran tackles Michael Roos and David Stewart and big-money free-agent guard Andy Levitre missed all the team drills because of lingering injuries. The revamped unit needed to develop chemistry with rookie guard Chance Warmack, but there’s still a lot of work to be done.

If they sweep the jags & the colts, then win the games against the other teams that aren't expected to do much.... that's 10 wins & a possible wildcard. Beating Pittsburg isn't out of the question, neither is beating us or the Broncos, or Seattle.

I think the tacks drop both games to the colts. While the indy did lose some, they are still pretty formidable with Luck. I also think SD beats them.

No.

Your 10 win scenario gives them every game they should win, the iffy games and at least one they shouldnt probably win (@ Ind).

They were 1-5 in the division last year, so even penciling in a sweep of the Jags is super premature.

And they beat zero teams with a winning record last year...

I thought they were going to start 0-2. They got over on PIT... damn near had us. I'm interested in seeing their defense go against San Diego's offense.

every mid teir team can be a WC team pretty much

Titans
Jags
Dolphins
Bills
Bengals
Browns
Ravens
Steelers
Cheifs
Raiders
CHargers

I for one think Dolphins and Ravens are deff the front runners IMO and there ARE A COUPLE OF dARK HORSES LIKE cHEIFS AND bENGALS I think CHargers and Steelers can actually win there divison maybe

I think the Bengals are going to win the AFC North. They've been trending up, so has the Ravens, while the Steelers appear to be treading water. I think the Ravens may be a wild card, but Cincinnati wins the division.

NewEngland, Houston, Denver, & Cincinnati will win their division.

Ravens, KC, Miami, & Tennessee will be fighting for a WC. Pittsburgh will be playing the Ravens twice, the Bengals twice, Tennessee once, & Miami once. I don't see them making it to 10 wins & you'll need at least 10 wins for an AFC WC this year.

TBO this could be a weird year for the AFC powerhouses WHat if the Pats FINALLLYYYY have a flop season and Denver has well If peyton gets injured or even regress 2nd year Alla Mike Vick his 2nd year in philly then WOW the Texans will be alone at the top of the AFC facing the teams that will fill that void the hot young teams like MIami and Cincy

at this point im kinda more afraid of the WC teams and dark horses more then Denver or NE

The answer is no, I have cursed the titans and it shall not be lifted until the passing of Bud Adams. Yes that's right, and you just read this on the Internet so it must be true. Sorry Tennessee fans, no apologies to the Houston fans that still follow that team, :-)
