Default Handed the game and we still lost...

All week we heard talking ish from the Titans how they were tuffer. Well they walked the walk, kind of. At no point in the game did they man handle us imo, except for the goal line stand (which was good call but should have already had play called instead of burning a TO to run same play). The Titans played "TUFF" alright and by tuff I mean bone headed, bush league bully ball. They had 11 penalties for 80 yards, some of them were critical drive halting ones that typically kill momentum. Yet still made Matt Hasselbeck look All Pro w/o CJ2K. Props to our coaching staff for making our guys poised, so we didn't get any retaliation penalties.

Congrats to Von Miller forced fumble #2 along w/ sack #2. This guy is beast. Nice that our DL also bottled up a slumping CJ2K. Any sunday that boy will be back on top, glad it wasn't on us.

How many times at that goal line stand did we have and with Titans penalties they tried to give it to us.

7-8 tries inside the five and cannot get it done. That is disgraceful. The offense should be running laps forever like my coach did us. Man up, take responsibility for the guy in front of you and get it done ONCE ?

What a joke, we DID NOT DESERVE TO WIN YESTERDAY..............

If we had picked up a few DT worth a **** we could have been playoff bound or at least in discussion near end of season.

here is that drive in full.

1st and 10 @ TEN 13 - McGahee right guard for 2 yds
2nd and 8 @ TEN 11 - McGahee left guard for 4 yds
3rd and 4 @ TEN 7 - Penalty TEN offsides for 3 yds
1st and 4 @ TEN 4 - Penalty TEN encroachment for 2 yds
1st and 2 @ TEN 2 - Orton pass incomplete short right to Fells
2nd and 2 @ TEN 2 - McGahee up the middle for no gain
3rd and 2 @ TEN 2 - McGahee left tackle for 1 yd
4th and 1 @ TEN 1 - McGahee up the middle for no gain

change of possession on downs.

if only we had somebody on the roster who created matchup problems for the defense in the redzone.

If the team had spent all the cap room it's possible. The AFC West division isn't very good.

False.

If you think a DT turns this team around, you're insane. We need a DT or 2, no doubt. But it wouldn't change anything. We were never going to be close to the playoffs.

Insane is not addressing the glaring abyss that is our DT. We would have been relevant at least untill week 13-14. I think we can do better than most if healthy, but teams will be able to run all day up the middle.

So far, starting Orton has put us at 1-2. If they had just used Tebow in the red zone, or started him, we are 3-0. That is with multiple starters missing. Fox is screwing this team out of what little chance it had.

We bottled up Chris Johnson pretty well. We would not have been relevant into week 13 or 14 either way. We were never going to be good this year.

It was impossible to address every deficiency in one shortened offseason.

Yeah have know idea why you protect ego of a QB thats not coming back next year. He could win 10 games and he'd give us the finger walking out the building.

When you leave $25million dollars on the table when you could have got the best 3 DT's for just over $15mil if u got all 3 of them plus 10 mil more to spread around "cap minimum." Bowlen is just a cheap ass.

Maybe few extra CB's and I can't say we are weak starter wise.

For starters, we did address the DT position. Unfortunately, two of the guys we signed are hurt, one out for the year. Even with our top two starters out, DT is not even close to our biggest problem (or even in the top 3). Bunkley has quietly been playing very well, and we'll get to see what Thomas can do in this defense soon enough. We have bigger issues at MLB, CB, and QB.

It has to do with not winning the game at hand. What makes you think the same problem won't rise up and bite us in the ass again? It did many times since last year and it won't be the last from yesterday. I just want to know Toker, who is "tuffer"? Broncos or Packers? I think the tuffest is going to be someone other than Packers. Most tuff might be Raiders at home.

We could have Suh in there and we arent going to win games because we cant score any freaking points

Two of our top three DTs are hurt, and Bunkley has been playing well

Our DT situation is not good, but its not the biggest weakness on our team

Our defense has been keeping us in games, only to watch our offense piss it away

Blaming THAT red zone failure on Orton? Really guys?

He had 2 Red zone TDs in that game and that one was all runs except for one ****ing play.

Let's blame Orton for that.

Im not advocating Orton or nothing but you ****ing people are retarded. That Red Zone failure is on the coaches, not the QB.

Orton's not a difference maker, but no one on the team is right now. Defense and O-line are getting better but aren't spectacular...

You put Orton on the 1999 Ravens, and they would have breezed through the Super Bowl.

When the other QB is the solution, the starting QB is the problem. You are correct though, the coaches are to blame.

I don't think we deserved to win any of the 3 games....

Orton is bad enough in the red zone. Throw in ultra conservative Fox into the equation and you get a steaming pile of crap!
