    Everyone is jumping on the V. Young Bandwagon. Yes, they are winning recently. But V. Yound didn't win the game for them. There defense did holding the Colts to only 17 points. Remember the Texans scored 23 vs. the Colts in Indy. If the Texans defense played the Colts like they are now, then we would have beaten them. Defense wins championships!!! Not offenses. So give a lot of credit to the Titans D.

    another thing that helped was VY controling the offense and winning the time of possesion game.

    If I remember correctly, we scored some of those points in the 4th quarter when the game was already over.

    I think everyone will agree our defense has improved a lot and I am looking forward to us playing the titans and colts again. It seems to me the titans play the colts really well. The titans only lost to them by 1 earlier this season..is this correct? and then of course the victory by the titans today.

    We have jacksonvilles number... what can we learn from the titans for when we play the colts? I think the game on christmas eve should be a good one, kubes will have the film from both titans game to help us out with the colts.

    why? VY sustained drives. Colts had only 9 plays and 47 yds in the 3rd Q. VY ate clock in the whole second half. The D had little to do with it until we needed a stop on their last FG..............then VY led us to a chance for a FG with 7 secs left. It was all VY.

    i love the way you make it sound like a gimmie 25 yarder:francis:

    this is like the saints fans saying reggie is the reason why brees, colston, deuce etc are playing well...obviously VY's production has been much better than reggies but its still the same principal...

    look its the colts(same for the giants last week)- they have 1 of the best offences and worst defences- so sorry if i think the D deserves as much (and more imo) praise for their victories the last 2 weeks- guys have been making plays for them- vince has been 1 of them but pacman, bironas, henry etc have been making plenty aswell

    No, it was Chris Hope. And he only got beat once by the best QB/WR combo in NFL history.

    Chris Hope has 3 INTs on the year and over 90 tackles. Lamont Thompson isn't very good, but he didn't get burned on Sunday.

    Wow you mean to tell me that HE scored 14 points all by himself with no offensive line, running back, tight ends, or wide recievers. :ohsnap: Why in the world did we pass on this guy I mean if we would've drafted HIM then we wouldn't have to worry about our pitiful offensive line. :sarcasm:



    I doubt he was the sole reason they scored 14 points. :shoot:

    I love the way you make it sound like the Titans would have lost without the field goal. They were tied and would have gone to OT. Just like the Titans' winning kick last week.

    Nope, you are wrong. It was Lamont Thompson that got beat. He is #28. Hope is #24. No question it was LT. He'll be replaced by Landry from LSU next year. :bananasplit:

    Sorry buddy but you are wrong.

    I have seen the replay many times & #24 is the guy who gets sucked in on the double move.

    #28 is the backside safety who ends up chasing the play cuz #24 is so far behind.

    P.S.- It's pretty easy to tell if you just look at the hair. Thompson has those long dreadlocks that stick out of his helmet so when he comes on the bottom of the screen you can easily tell which one he is.

    Number of 3 and outs yesterday for Titans - Zero
    8 of 13 on 3rd down conversions.

    What does that have to do with the defense?

    And for the record, it was #24 Chris Hope that was torched.

    SportsCenter has been showing the wind behind that kick and make no mistake, it had to have helped. Credit goes to Bironas though, for using the wind and kicking it the way it needed to go... straight down the middle.
