    Seems like we aren't the only ones dealing with offseason injuries that aren't going as well as we'd hope.

    Is this just hate talking?

    Ten pit
    Ten hou
    SD ten 1
    NYJ ten 2
    KC ten 3
    Ten Sea
    Sf ten
    bye
    ten stl 4
    jac ten 5
    ind ten 6
    ten oak 7
    ten ind 8

    ten den
    ari ten 9
    ten jac 10
    hou ten


    If they sweep the jags & the colts, then win the games against the other teams that aren't expected to do much.... that's 10 wins & a possible wildcard. Beating Pittsburg isn't out of the question, neither is beating us or the Broncos, or Seattle.

    I think the tacks drop both games to the colts. While the indy did lose some, they are still pretty formidable with Luck. I also think SD beats them.

    Ten pit
    Ten hou
    SD ten
    NYJ ten 1
    KC ten 2
    Ten Sea
    Sf ten
    bye
    ten stl 3
    jac ten 4

    ind ten
    ten oak 5
    ten ind
    ten den
    ari ten 6
    ten jac 7
    hou ten

    Remember, they've got a QB killah on their team now.

    No.

    Your 10 win scenario gives them every game they should win, the iffy games and at least one they shouldnt probably win (@ Ind).

    They were 1-5 in the division last year, so even penciling in a sweep of the Jags is super premature.

    And they beat zero teams with a winning record last year...

    Titans Draft one of the best guards coming out of college in years and sign one of the best free agents at guard in years, so what's the sack number for JJ in Titan games this year ?

    My point was that their schedule is full of teams that had as many problems as they did. They might not sweep the Colts & Jags, I know. But everybody "win some they shouldn't, lose some they shouldn't".

    They beat the Steelers last year, they can probably beat them again this year. We're not unbeatable, they might beat us. Seattle didn't win 16 games last season, they might beat them.

    I don't know that the Titans are a play off team. Just trying to spark some football conversation. I appreciate your post, but I'm not saying "my scenario" will play out exactly like that.

    You're posts in this thread pretty much assume the bolded is only 1/2 true.

    Of course they are. I bet their playing will be off all season.

    I don't see the Titans being good for a very long time so the answer for me is NO

    You really never know, but I see a very slim chance that they would be a breakout team next year.

    Even if they make it to the play-offs, I wouldn't consider them a break out team (Bengals, one & done two years running). They've got a bunch of chumps on their schedule & even though they're chumps themselves, if they've improved just a little compared to the other chumps, they could win 10 games.

    Heck, if they can stay focused for 60 minutes they could win 10 games.

    I'm not rooting for them to be a play-off team, or for them to win 1 game, much less 10. It was an article I saw out in cyber-space & thought it would be nice to talk about.

    I know it's the tits & I hate them, but it's hard for me to watch Munchak fail. He deserves better than that & this may very well be his last shot.

    As long as Bud Adams owns them my answer is no.

    You act as if the guy is Jerruh or Al Davis, he deserves more credit and respect than that

    Those guys/teams have won SBs. Besides, I was half joking regarding his chances of winning.

    Far as respect goes, though, I can't respect an owner that shoots the bird(s) at fans of the sport in their seats. Nor do I like it when he drafts a player (VY) who his HC doesn't want primarily in an effort to stick it to my favorite team. I will leave the politics and money issues of whether he was an @$$hat for leaving with the Oilers alone, but he's just generally someone I don't see as deserving respect. If I was older, I'd probably resent his firing of Phillips too, but I wasn't really an Oilers fan yet at the time.
