We'll just sticky this. "Next week" is always the bigger test.

Division game or not I actually think the Denver game was bigger, because of tie breakers. Denver if Manning gets on a role actually has the potential to challenge our record. It's the same reason why I feel the game against Baltimore is bigger than any divisional game we'll play this season. No team in this division is going to challenge us this season.

The Titans are allowing 37+ ppg and 463 ypg. This is a bad defense. Epically bad. Richard Smith and Frank Bush bad. I look at the talent on defense, and they shouldn't be this bad. A case of the sum being less than its parts.

In week 7 of 2011, both Foster and Tate put up 100+ rushing yards versus the Titans. I can see that happening again. It should be long day for the Titans.

I read on the titans board that their defense was better than the broncos and their offense was good enough to put up 20+ on us easily...

I wanted to create an account just to respond to that one post...

Maybe we can go for a triple and Forsett will put up 100+ also.

I'm sure the Texans will go easy on the Titans on Sunday, after all it's going to be the Titans's superbowl for this year. The game surely won't resemble the 41-7 boot party the Texans threw in Nashville last year.

I haven't been to the message board on the official Texans website, but I hope the fans who post there aren't as classless as the fools up in Tennessee.

Default Re: Next Week is an even bigger test.

What's interesting to learn is that the Titans may have very well lost the Lions game, leaving them 0-3, if not for a "little" publicized "mistake" at the very end of OT.
Quote:
Yes, the Titans had five scoring plays over 60 yards but what’s even more unfathomable is the Lions mustered up some tricks of their own with the little time they had left in regulation.

Down two touchdowns with 18 seconds left in regulation Detroit backup quarterback Shaun Hill threw to wide receiver Calvin Johnson cutting the Titans’ lead to seven with the clock dwindling. After a perfect onside kick recovered by Amare Spievey, Hill heaved a Hail Mary to the end zone and the ball fell into Lions’ wide receiver Titus Young’s hands for the score sending the game into OT.

The Titans settled for a field goal in overtime and the Lions wouldn’t settle for the tie, failing on a fourth-and-inches quarterback sneak at the Titans’ seven-yard line handing Tennessee their first win of the season.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz took responsibility for the call to go for the first down instead of taking the points but he did so by admitting it wasn’t the intended call. Schwartz sent Hill and the offense out for a hard count in an attempt to draw the Titans offside but a costly miscommunication led to center Dominic Raiola snapping the ball instead.

Raiola said he misread Hill’s lips thinking he was supposed to run a fullback dive
and he isn’t happy with the mistake.

“It still hurts,” Raiola said to the Detroit Free Press. “It’s still fresh. I just let everybody down; I let all my people down. That’s the way I take it.”
