Six days after looking like world-beaters on Monday Night Football, the Titans reverted back to old form, losing to the team they replaced in Houston, 20-10
Can you say frustration, any one?
The Titans are 0-3 at home this year....oh and those losses are to AFC South opponents. That sound loud wooshing sound you heard yesterday was the win rushing out of our sails for any hope to compete for a wild-card slot much less the AFC South trophy. And the road doesn't get much easier next week as we go on the road to face the Minnesota Vikings, who pass for approximately 1700 yards per game. Yeah, our secondary looked pretty sad against Houston...you have to think that Dante Culpepper is just drooling at the chance to play us next week. Also, on the last Titans' drive when time was of the essense, they looked lethargic. No sense of urgency or rush to get to the line and try to drive the ball downfield, keep the Texans' defense on its heels and get a touchdown and try for the onside kick. Instead, McNair and company looked like they were out for a normal Sunday, with the Titans up by two trying to bleed off some clock time. Also, I think Jeff Fisher's lack of willingness to kick the field goal on fourth and two from the four with three time-outs and less than two minutes to go speaks volumes about his confidence in our defense.
