    I wasn't supposed to go all four games, just two. But it turned that I will go to all four games in a row. I went to the colts game with some co-workers and will go to the rest with family. I live 350 miles from Houston. That's a 700 mile round trip. I'm not complaining because I actually enjoy the trips. I actually have a blast. They are just really exhausting.

    I hear you Stingray. If it weren't 2800 miles one way and $600 out of my pocket, I'd be at every game myself. I have to settle for $300 worth of DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket with SuperFan.

    I made it to my first NFL game ever last week to watch the Texans. I'm a college student (obviously broke all the time), but I managed to get my season tickets this year. Its a 800 (there & back) mile trip for me each time but I will be there at every single game. Some people may have given up hope on this team but I was there for 2-14 & I will be there the day we turn the corner & taste 14-2.

    Slaton, Ryans, Williams & the rest of the youth on this team shows more than just promise. We have had a rough road but I still believe that we can string together a good number of wins before this season is done. The Titans are good & may have already run away with our division but a playoff spot is still within reach considering the Colts, Jags, Chargers, & Jets have started off pretty dismal & yet they all go through a rough spot in their schedules like we did early on.
