  1. Yes, you guys barely escaped the Texans today. And it could happen again to us in week 17. But keep in mind that this will be the game that Derrick Henry will be trying for 2000 yards for the season. Even facing J J Watt, I can't see Henry being denied in that game.

  3. We had very high hopes for Corey Davis here in Nashville and there have always been "flash" games. But he's never played like he's deserved #1 receiver status until this year where the consistency has finally been there. Ironically that's been after A.J. Brown hit the scene and catapulted himself into #1 status pretty quickly. The irony is that because of his lack of #1 production numbers through his first few rookie years, the Titans declined his 5th year option. Now with the way he's playing, it's more likely that he'll get more money on the free agent market than what we could
  4. Awful news and all the best to him. Titans LT David Quissenberry spent 3 years fighting cancer before returning to the NFL last year and made it off the practice squad to starting LT. Hopefully he beats this and makes a similar return.
  5. You know what’s crazy? The Titans nearly traded him in the middle of a lack luster first season as a starter. Derrick Henry reportedly had a come-to-Jesus talk with Titans legend Eddie George about his running technique and then a light switch went on. He’s been King Henry ever since.
  6. True. The Colts have somehow owned the Titans regardless of who's driving the ship. Those of us in Nashville wonder when the day of losses to the horseshoe will end, but so far it hasn't yet.
  7. The stellar defense of Indy can stand the loss of Buckner, as great as he is, and still be formidable to most NFL teams. Of course, Derrick Henry doesn't have to face a guy even larger than he is, not that he'd care much. Most teams have figured out how to stop Henry, at least in the beginning. Stack the box on obvious run plays and look to shoot the gap to get his legs wrapped in the backfield before he can get up a head of steam. That often works for the first half of play. The problem is that Henry doesn't tire easily and the defense usually wears out before he does. So it's not unusual fo
  8. Sounds like this week is going to be a war of attrition before the starting whistle. Buckner being out isn't good news for trying to take down Henry. But the Titans lost Jayon Brown for the season on a really cheap shot on a meaningless play last week and he was our "green dot" guy on defense. So a defense that already had problems gets worse. On offense, we were hoping to get Adam Humphries back as our go-to slot receiver but he didn't make it off of concussion protocol and will miss his third game (he was taken out by a horrible flagrant cheap shot weeks ago). But A.J. Brown and
  9. There is always a chance with Aaron Rodgers. Our three toughest remaining games are Indy, GB (in December!) and Cleveland.
  10. Here we go again. Hopefully for Nashville the outcome will be different. The Titans are seriously banged up right now but they showed true grit yesterday, and Derrick Henry is still Derrick Henry.
  11. Obviously must-win for both teams. I think we'd be happy to split with you guys over the next few weeks, but whomever controls this competition controls the AFC South playoff race. We have not had good luck against Indy for years regardless of who is manning the ship (pun intended).
  12. The Titans are carrying two kickers right now since Ryan Succop hasn't been the same since coming back from IR earlier this season from a knee injury. When he first came back, he was spraying it all over the yard. Accuracy is better now but distance is crap, so we brought in a kicker for kickoffs and long distance field goals. You guys saw him last week but he didn't kick any field goals.
  13. Cameron Wake went to IR after last game....not good and he's been productive, even at an advanced age for an NFL player. But the rookie Jeffery Simmons is back there now and he began the season injured still working on his ACL repair from this past January. He's been pretty productive so far and hasn't faced the Colts yet. Part of our problem the last time was the inability of getting Brissett on the ground, even when he was in the grasp of someone. Simmons is a proverbial beast....should be an interesting challenge for both men.
  14. And TY Hilton is out. Now I think we Titans fans actually have a shot....that's the guy who always scares me. Of course, you have beaten us without him before, usually turning tight ends into 100 yard performance days.
  15. TY Hilton always scares us. I've yet to see us have a true answer for that guy. He always plays us well. But Logan Ryan and Malcolm Butler are very experienced corners with Kevin Byard behind them. It's probably the best defense we've ever had against that guy. The Titans' punter isn't just "very good". I wouldn't have anyone else in the league except for Brett Kern. He's that good. Last week's safety was set up because Kern sent a 70 yard bomb straight into the "coffin corner". And he does this all the time.
