    So not being a blinders-on suckup like you and many others is “degrading” Brady?

    Face it — he’s playing not great and no amount of frantically trying to blame everyone else on the team can change that.

    Yes, his arm is almost certainly injured and that’s a huge part of it. The question is if getting these nagging, performance-hurting injuries (knee last year, elbow this year) are the new normal given his age or not.

    No its not. But thats all you do . It's not like you are objective about some silly penalty or dropped passes or pass protection. The only person you keep blaming is brady because he somewhere saud "he has answers to test" and he is not giving you the worth of 20k you spend on tkts on this team.

    BB called AJ Brown’s pre-draft visit “impressive.” I wish it was impressive enough for the team to have drafted him instead of Harry.

    I'm going to do something super out of line right now -- mods please don't ban me -- and I'm going to talk about football.

    I don't think there's a single matchup in the playoffs that we should be happy about. The AFC was very competitive this year, after all. It was the same way last year too. SD was coming in red hot and looking physical and we beat them in basically 1 and a half quarters. No doubt all the ex-Patriot Titan players will be extra motivated for this one especially after all the crap talk last year.

    This is very much a strengths on weaknesses type matchup. Our WRs matchup poorly against their Secondary so this game needs to be highlighted by Michel and White. Those two need to have combined yardage of at least 150 yards. The rest needs to come from Burkhead, Harry, Sanu, and Dorsett, and LaCosse.

    The Titans offense is efficient in the passing game and they run the ball well. It all starts with stopping the run. Tannehill has been killing it on the play action. Our defense is experienced enough to not bite on it and we can afford to go bigger at LB/DL to help out against the run.

    The key to this game is starting fast. If we can get 10+ point lead early it allows us to simplify, double down on what we do well (passing defense), and de-emphasize what the Titans do well (running game). Not to mention, start off fast would give our team a ton of confidence that they haven't had in a while.

    I refuse to believe that the guy who threw absolute darts vs KC IN KC in OT on those 3 3rd and 10s last jan suddenly lost it with his arm strength or mentally. Its a down yr for him just like 2006 was and its a down for tthe whole offense in general.

    Can someone breakdown the strenghts and weakness of the titans on film so we can have more football related discussions ? Everywhere i read it seems titans are #1 in this and that since tannehill took over. So how can we stop this team and score on it ?

    PatFranken suggested a larger role for JoJuan instead of Chung in certain subpackages. Could see him in a money role playing against a TE when the Titans are in 12 and 13 formations.

    That Vrabel is one ornery cranky pants SOB. Definitely making sure his men come in totally sans awe.

    He might be on to something. JoeJuan has been pretty decent actually in coverage

    He’s been ok, but he’s big so not as easy to muscle.

    I’m not a huge Vrabel fan, but it’s kind of a dumb question that he’s answered several times already.
