That’s the difference between Vrabel & his Titans vs Frank & his Colts.  The Titans beat other AFC playoff teams on Vrabel’s watch.  We haven’t had the same success under Frank.  It’s time for us to start beating the better AFC teams if we ever plan on making real playoff runs.

OMG, the Titans are the luckiest team I have ever seen. You talk about football Gods being with you, the Bills get a penalty on a 101 yard return and then this, too comical. This team is so lucky that it is truly nonsense. 

 

You make your luck. Vrabel learned from Belichick you play the whole 60 minutes. Look how Belichick and the Patriots played the Cowboys, they make you play 60 minutes. Make the plays to win it at the end when you can. We blow a FG, lose vs the Ravens. They make a 4th down stop, beat the Bills.

That right there on Monday night football the past two weeks  is the difference between the Titans and the Colts and why Tennessee will win the division. Titans can beat a good team while the Colts blow a game against a good team.  Huge win for the Titans. Sucks for Indy.  Saw this coming.  SMH.

Terrible decision, as good a runner as Allen is, sending him up the middle against hundreds of pounds of humanity was stupid. I know a field goal attempt may not have been successful but from that close, it would've taken a horrible snap or fumbled hold to not convert and then they could've won the coin toss and got the ball 1st in overtime.

Indy can’t catch a break in any shape or fashion. We get injured and fall apart. Tennessee loses their starters and backups and STILL stop Buffalo. 

That is when you know you have good coaching. Eberflus to me is not a very good coach. Titans defense played physical and we play like mush.

Yeah with the help from the REFS anyone can win.

Good teams create their own luck.  Since they’ve paired Tannehill (not that great of a QB imo) with Henry, they’ve had a knack for making key plays.  Be it turnovers to give their Offense a short field or defensive scores or Henry breaking off long TD runs.  Regardless, they usually cash in those opportunities.  Right now they’ve been getting all the good fortune the last couple seasons while we’ve been finding ways to lose close games to the better teams in our conference.  I don’t know what it’s gonna take but I’d love to have that good fortune swing back our way.

It was not a co-incidence that we won more close games when we had AV for a kicker and/or Luck as a QB that could make plays with his legs and arm. Those guys were the last true "finishers" we had, IMO.

The similarity between this MNF game and last week's is that 1 team didn't win the game, the other team lost it - last week it was us, and this week it was Buffalo. For all of Lamar Jackson's heroics, if we make just 1 of the 3 or 4 kicks we missed, we win that game regardless and if Buffalo showed a little imagination on the 4th down play call, they at least get the yard and if they take the field goal, they're probably still playing right now in overtime.

Colts had plenty of chances to beat Ravens but couldn’t get it done. Doyle got the benefit of a bad call on a cheap shot he gave late in the game but Colts couldn’t capitalize to win the game…kick was missed.  If you get the refs to give you a break…still got to cash in. Gotta give Titans credit for doing what we didn’t do last week.

If giving up 353 yards passing 75% completion and 3 td is defending the pass not sure what you definition of good is but it sure isnt mine or most

Oh good lord. They stopped the pass when it counted. You knew exactly what I meant. Quit trying to argue.

WE will beat them and so will KC so both teams will be 4-4 through 8 games IMO. Tonight was a pile of you know what though. These holding calls on kick offs are so inconsistent, you can call holding on almost every play, the REFS just do it when they want too. You don't take away a 101 yard run over a hold that had nothing to do with the play. I seen the hold but it was brief and Buffalo would've scored anyway, that player was gone regardless.

I think the colts are missing some swag on this team. You look at Aaron Rodgers and what he said to the bears. We need players with a little bit of ego.  We have a lot of players with a passive personality.

We need a WR like Michael Irvin, he was great and had swag. I know they don't make many like him. Odell is wasting away in Cleveland.

    • Yeah, for one game.  Pinter was that bad.  Of any O-linenan the Colts actually went into the season with as a starter, Pinter might be the worst Colts O-lineman of the past 15-20 years.  Dude was tossed around like a rag doll.   The official investigation is still ongoing as to whether Matt Ryan fell off the cliff or was pushed off the cliff by Pinter and Pryor.    
    • After Pinter nearly ended Matt Ryan's life in 4 games, Smith was moved to RG for the 2022 Denver game - the 12-9 game for the ages.  Ballard pulled the plug on Smith at RG five minutes later, so I wouldn't expect it again.  
    • It wasn't a great season (great would be making the Finals) but I would classify it as a very good one, one reason why is, we overachieved. Making the Final 4 is a very good accomplishment and winning 47 games to stay out of the playin scenario is pretty respectable. We also won a Game 7 at NY in the Semi's which is almost impossible to do no matter who they have out there. They did have Brunson and Divincenzo for that Game 7 for most of the game. Brunson had to leave because of a broken hand late in the 3rd but by then we were up big anyway.    Even though we got swept by Boston, it didn't even really feel like a sweep. We lost both home games without Haliburton by only 3 points and gave away Game 1 losing in OT and that was at Boston. They really only kicked our butt in Game 2.    All in all, we just lost to a slightly better team who has been in the Conference Finals for many years - so their experience in closing games was better.    We need to add 1 more piece and it needs to be someone that just focuses on being physical in the paint defensively and wants to Rebound more than anything. Turner is more of a stretch Center that has a score first mentality, he is a great shot blocker but isn't physical enough when guys come into the paint.   There are 5 levels to basketball: Level 1 - Just making the Playoffs (above average) Level 2 - Winning a Playoff series (good) Level 3 - Winning 2 Playoff series = making the Conference Finals (very good) Level 4 - Winning 3 Playoff series = Winning the Conference (great) Level 5 - Being a World Champion   -We reached Level 3   I won't be a sore loser so I will congratulate @NFLUpand the other Boston fans for winning the East. They are just better as of now.
    • I'm sorry I misstated that it was Saturday that moved him back, IIRC Saturday had stated that Smith would be staying at RT and they were moving Raimann to LT and that's what I am remembering. Still never stated it was a long term plan, I even said it was Reich grasping at straws to try and fix the O-line.   It's the simple argument of someone stating that something never happened, when it had happened. Now you're somehow trying to argue that while trying to put words in my mouth. I never said it was a long term thing. YOU and I are on the same page and the same opinion that he should remain a RT and shouldn't be changed to RG
    • Smith had a career year when he was in there last year on a bad knee.
