What I think the Titans should be thinking...

December, 10, 2013
What I think they should be thinking in the headquarters of the Tennessee Titans this afternoon…

Have we been brainwashed? Some guys after that 51-28 pasting at Denver said it reflected our season, that we were close but couldn’t finish. Close? Close for a while doesn’t mean close in the end. What definition of close fits a 23-point loss? Our head coach sometimes talks like that and now it’s seeping into the locker room. That’s dangerous. Yes, we’re still playing with effort, we’re still following the coaches’ leads and we’re still playing for each other. But it’s time to be a bit more honest. We are a lot better than last year but we’re still bad. Maybe that lends context to just how bad we were last year. But we have to win two of three to be better in the only way that matters, our record. We have to win three straight to finish 8-8. Why in the world would anyone look at us and say, ‘There is a team poised to win three in a row?’
