Default Clenching the South

Not trying to get too far ahead. Just trying to think this thing through.

How many games ahead of the Titans do we need to get in order to clench a play-off spot?

Or even the Colts? We're up 4 games to the Colts right now, if we win 4 more & they lose 4 more, they can't catch us, right?

I know we need to get past 5-7 first & we need to get 3 games over .500 first, but just wondering, when do we think we'll be clenching? week 10? Week 11?

Technically, the Titans could still finish 13-3, but they'd have to beat us in Houston to do it; so, we have to win 8 more games (for a total of 12), including the one in Houston against the Titans.

Currently, we are 4-3 and they are 3-3.

It's just way too early...

Agreed. Listening to Mark V this morning and he is swimming drunk in the Kool-aid. He sounds like he's just seen a naked woman for the first time.

We started 5/3 last year .... and went on a 4 game losing streak.

We had no defense. BIG difference. We'll be in every game we play this year.

This is whats coming up for Tennessee


Cakewalk against IND
Should win against CIN, we should of beaten OAK
Cam Newton is better than Vince Young, should beat TEN in Carolina
ATL at home with Matt Ryan is unbeatable
TB on paper is a better team than TEN
BUF is a better team than TEN and in Buffalo
NO will beat TEN like they beat IND

At best 2-5


Let's not forget Chris Johnson is a no show.

that's not even true lol... are you people even listening? or do you already have a certain idea of how a host is? He was actually supporting the side of being realistic and taking it one game at a time. It was actually John Lopez who was calling out dates of clinching.

Actually, I think these two games are what sparked the conversation on the radio this morning, which got me to thinking.

The Colts may very well win that game if what we saw out of Tennessee was for real. They had nothing. No offense, no defense, the Colts could win & the Bengals look like a lock to win.

Unless they have some reason more urgent than Division lead to play for, the Titans may very well be done.

I think that 10 wins will be what's need to win this division. Given the nature of the other three teams, the Texans should go 5-1 or 6-0 within the division and win at least 4 games ( 2 already in pocket)against the rest of the world. I only care about the Texans racking up the 10 wins, the who they beat to get there is not important. Just get there if you can.

I hope not. Hopefully the Tits will be so far down the toilet you can't see them and the Texans have clinched the division already.

How awesome would it be to beat the shit out of the Tits last day of the season while they are already downtrodden and we are on our way to the playoffs!!

10-6 in this crappy division will make it a certainty, and we can go out first round of the playoffs just like KC did last year...

If they have already clinched the division, knowing Gary he will rest the starters. I would want them to put their foot on the Titans throat!

I'm not gonna look too far ahead though.

There is no doubt The Texans are the only nugget of corn in this pile of k-rap division. But injuries could still make this an open race.

Default Re: Clenching the South

If the Texans can consistently play like they did yesterday, clinching is a no-brainer.

But, historically they 'let up' on lesser opponents and play down to their level. The next two home games will be revealing in that regard, as they should roll over both Jax and Cleveland.

I don't want to get ahead of ourselves and count chickens, but 6-3 would be a nice record to look at, especially because it means they've broken the 5-7 curse.
