So it’s been awhile so I figured it would be a good idea to play a little catch up on what’s been happening on the Titan’s sidelines.
Kenny Britt going high up for his third touchdown catch against the Eagles.
Currently going into the bye week the Tennessee Titans are 5-3! Week five, six, and seven were just repeat efforts of the titans kickin’ some a$$ around the league, and week eight, not so much. Week five in Big D, the Titans came out hot and won 34-27, the following week the Titans traveled to Jacksonville to take on their rivals on Monday Night Football.
As a rival, I hate the guts out of the Jags. They don’t sell out their stadium, there team always sucks but are good (I know, it makes no sense to me either) and they have the worst colors in sports. There wasn’t much to say about the game, however the Titans won 30-3.
Week seven was good and not good when the Titans squared off with the Philadelphia Eagles. Unfortunately Vince Young got hurt in the game against the Jags and the Titans had to start the old man, Kerry Collins. Collins is TERRIBLE! He had three turnovers in the first half and the game was not going good at all. Then second year receiver Kenny Britt came off the bench and so many things went right. Kenny Britt ended up catching seven balls for 225 yards and 3 touchdowns! That is nuts for a receiver! I swear Vince was ready to go but coach Jeff Fisher in my opinion is a racist bastard, and like old white man Collins. Whatever though, the titans scored a franchise high 27 points in the fourth quarter and won the game, ending week seven with a 5-2 record, not bad eh?
Week eight was similar to week seven, lots of good and lots of bad. Vince was back on the field and the Titans hoped to improve to 6-2 going into the bye week. Things started off great, the Titans blocked the first punt for the San Diego Chargers and got a safety to take a 2-0 lead. However, the next drive Vince chucked a ball deep and Kenny Britt went up for it and heard a pop. Shit! He pulled his hamstright and was going to be out 6-8 weeks. That is terrible news after seeing what he was capable of last week, and having 7 touchdowns in six weeks.
Things didn’t go much smoother after that, the Titans gave up the lead and in the fourth quarter the Titans were down eight. Of course more would go wrong, Vince Young dropped back to pass and ended up taking a few minutes to get up. He hurt his knee so that meant Collins had to come in. What a great thing! Collins gets to come in to try to tie the game up on the last drive, but that never happened and the Titans lost to the Chargers 33-25.
Now going into the bye week the Titans are 5-3 and looking for a week off to get healthy and to prepare themselves for a road battle with the Miami Dolphins. Screw Fish and Collins, get Vince healthy and let’s get to the playoffs! Go Titans!
Week three was one hell of a week for the Tennessee Titans. The Titans went into the New Meadowlands Stadium to face the 1-1 New York Giants. As a fan I felt like they needed to win this came, the Titans just came off one of their biggest a$$ kickin’s in the past few years and it’s very important to start off hot and carry the momentum over.
Apparently they did not get the memo and scored a lousy three points in the first quarter. On a good note the “G-Men” also didn’t do much and put up a fat goose egg in the first quarter. I was sitting there and I swearwatching paint dry was on the same level of entertainment this game was providing.
Then CJ rushed it in the end zone to take a ten nothing lead. However, that did not last long. The defense forgot to tackle and the Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw was tearing up defends on his way to a score and at half time the game was all squared up. It was ten to ten.
The second half was a blast. The Titans head coach Jeff Fisher had to have said something to get the team to make them come out hot. The Titans forced three turnovers and the Giants were making all sorts of mistakes on the field. The Titans ended up pulling off the win 29-10. Now they were sitting at 2-1 and had all sorts of things working.
Week Four the Tennessee Titans had their hands full with the former Bears quarterback Kyle Orton. I just had confidence knowing that Orton was in the Music city and I guarantee he just wanted to get out of the game and go enjoy a few cold ones on the side line and go see what the city of Nashville had to offer tourists
- Kyle Orton back in his college days
I said this because I recently realized how much of a laid back guy Orton is and how much he enjoys getting F*c*ed up. I checked out pictures on the internet and saw dozens of pictures of Orton just obliterated and almost to the point of blacking out and he seemed to always have the chicks and a bottle of Jack in one hand. However these were from the college days so of course he was a hot shot because he was the quarterback. I was just hoping he had a big night in the Music City to help make the Titan’s day at work just that much easier.
On other terms, Orton just tore up the secondary. Kyle Orton ended up having almost 400 passing yards and the Broncos improved to 2-2 after a close 26-20 defeat of the Titans. Nothing went right for the Titans, the offense was pretty much shut down and there were countless mistakes all over the field. There was not much to say but the Titans had to put that a$$ beatin’ on the back of their minds and focus on a tough Dallas Cowgirls coming up in a week.
A 2-2 start is not bad, compared to starting 0-6 last year, but it would be nice to start the year on a good note so the Titan’s could just coast and not have the last few weeks of the season as the most important.
We’ll see next week in big D. Go Titans!
