Good thing is that the Titans play Steelers next week at Pittsburgh while we entertain the Raiders.

A Steeler team that will looks like it might be without Big Ben since we put him in a walking boot. Who knows, but it would be the Titans lucky break that's for sure if he doesn't play.

Imo, we do typically have problems with smashmouth teams but I am not nearly as worried this year as I have been in past years.

Ok runs the ball well but doesn't pass well. Baltimore passes well but can't run.

I think we should win against the raiders and give us a coin flip against Baltimore. Against the raiders make them one dimensional I think angle beaters (ie speed backs) give us more trouble than power backs and he could blow us up. Getting ahead fast makes them play catchup and thus one dimensional. Against Baltimore long drives and power running are key and hit flacco ALOT.

It doesn't really matter how good the Browns are. The question is can the Titans win 10 games?

They are 3-1
Pitts - 1
Bye
Houston
Indy - 2
Bengals - 3
Carolina - 4
Atlanta - 5
Tampa Bay - 6
Buffalo - 7
New Orleans
Indy - 8
Jags - 9
Houston

New Orleans is the only elite left on their schedule
Even if we sweep them, there are still 9 games on their schedule they can win. I'm not saying that they can win all 9, only that they are all winnable. They only need to win 7 more for a 10 win season.

I'd almost bet money Ben plays , he's a tough son of a gun ..... and that the Steelers win .... cant remember the last time they lost two in a row.

Ray Rice is one of the leagues best backs ..... I think he would question that statement.

Atlanta, Tampa Bay, and Buffalo will not be cake walks.

But I like to take things week by week since obviously things can change and by then the Bills could come back down to earth.

I hope we pissed the Steelers off, Ben is tough...he will tough out this injury if it's not serious otherwise they are likely to beat Batch behind that oline.

They beat a good Ravens team and a decent Browns team though. I was hoping the Browns would have gave them more of a challenge to show that they are just a decent team but looks like they have something going for them.

I still think this is our division to lose. We have the talent to sweep our division and should win some games against teams like Oakland, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Carolina - and we also have a chance to beat Baltimore.

Sure, the Titans play better than expected and might very well have a 9-7 record or even a 10-6. But there is no reason for us to not have a 10-6 record and at the very least get a wildcard spot.

I'm not putting them up as wins, I'm just saying it's possible.

I don't know why Texans' fans are saying 10 games will win the division.

Like I said, we can sweep the Titans (which most likely won't happen) & they can still win 10 games. There really isn't another "elite" team on their schedule other than New Orleans.

We may need 11 games to make the play-offs.... we may need 12

At the start of the season, I thought Hasselbeck might be washed up.

I'm not sure I think that any more. Maybe he just needed a scenery change.

I see the bye weeks as favorable. We need to win to keep momentum, but sometimes teams get rusty off the bye week and it takes a bit to get back in to things. Helps us out because apparently we are a first half team now.
