We just need to stay healthy for New England. I'm hoping most of those players come back by the time we play New England. We'll need them. We saw what other teams did to us when our defense was spread out. Tom Brady would pick us apart.

Ball control, red zone accuracy, no turnovers, pitch and catch by Matt & usual targets should win game.

I was kind of hoping they'd rest Joseph another week. The Titans passing game is...nothing compared to the Lions, and our secondary was adequate once Kareem was moved to cover Calvin.

I'm excited about Mercilus starting Sunday for the first time, especially on the weak side where he played in college. It's less demanding than the strong side for rushing defense and also pass coverage, and just lets the rookie cut loose and rush the QB.

With Gump out, does that mean Brandon Brooks will be in the rotation? Ben Jones was rotating with Gump. Who is our other backup Guard besides Brooks and Caldwell??

I would like to see Brooks get some snaps.

Don't worry. Wade's had our D practice with modified equipment all week in anticipation of our "handicap" going into Sunday.

I think the most important thing he needs to "figure out" is play recognition. Is it a run, or a pass? I know many have said he is a liability against the run, but when I went back to watch the Lions game, he appeared to do a good job. Maybe not excellent, but a good job none the less.

But yes, it will be nice to see him get a start & get some serious snaps. His pass rush ought to improve simply because he'll have the ability to get into a rhythm & set up his opponent.

Sorry to say however, I haven't seen much explosive strength from him. He's strong enough to set the edge, but I don't see him as being able to punch, or use his arms to "press" a Tackle off of him.

But we'll see.

After all the injuries coming out of Detroit, at least we'll be playing on natural grass this Sunday.

Time to see what that 60th pick got us. I really hope they are just giving guys time to heal up, and get ready for the Pats, and the stretch run. All of these injuries, kind of worry me.

The defense with all of these players out won't slow anyone down. If the Titans struggle to score, it'll be because of their issues, not the D. Shouldn't expect much from the D, the O however should hopefully perform on all cylinders against their mediocre D.

Caldwell, losing him is no big deal, he's not a starter anyway.
James, this hurts since he calls the defensive plays.
Joseph, this really hurts, time for KJ and Harris or Ball to step up.
Newton, he could probably use a brake, Harris should fill in fine.
Reed, this hurts but we've got great depth at OLB.

This almost sound like Kubiak is letting some players heal up and rest up in preparation for the playoffs.

I know Harris will get the predominant share of snaps at RT in place of Newton but I'd sure like to see Gardner get some playing time as well so that we can better evaluate him in real game situations and see if he's worth keeping next season.

James was a replacement for Demeco, if I remember right. Wonder how much they miss him now! (to lazy to look up the sarcasm smilie!) Same with all the chat about Caldwell replacing Winston. How did that work out?? Regardless of what you guys think about the DUMPING of Winston, he never missed a game with an injury, that I know of anyway.

Now, PLEASE don't start spitting out the "we're 10-1" without them crap either. We MIGHT be 11-0 with them, or 1-10 with them, who knows. I just think what they brought to this team is truly MISSED! Not one replacement has been as solid as Demeco or Winston. AGAIN, JMO!!!

I don't think they expected the players they brought in to play at the same level as Demeco and Winston. They've been good enough though, but they need to find an upgrade during the offseason. Unfortunately both of those guys were cap casualties. Had we kept them then we would have had to cut quality players somewhere else.
