Indy's inability to stop the run is going to kill them down the road.

It is time for Dungy to go. He came to Indy with all that firepower on offense and was supposed to make the defense respectable. He hasnt won and the defense hasnt gotten better. Their offense is good despite Dungy and their defense is bad b/c of him. Put the worst head coach you can think of in charge of that team and I cant imagine the outcome would be any different. Year after year they show you the same thing and they can't ever to seem to get past their unimaginative play calling and awful defensive play.

To lose to Tennessee is bad but to lose to them while not playing your best players is just inexcusable. Unless Indy wins the super bowl this year somehow despite that horrid defense Dungy should be run out of town.

well, at least there's a sliver lining for Harrison/Wayne/Manning owners... they are probably going to have to play all the way to week 17 to get that home field advantage.

Sorry man....how good was Indy before Dungy came? How much better is that defense now than they were before he came (they do actually have a top 5 pass defense)? Did they start 2 seasons 9-0 before he got there? A loss to a team that is playing well right now (just beat the Giants the week before) is not reason to call for Dungy being run out of town. C'mon man....talk about overreactions.....

Thats four big ones in a row for the titans. This team has shown unbelievable confidence and resiliency for a team way under .500.
I think you cant give enough credit to Fisher for keeping the guys believing in each other. This is the turning point for the Titans franchise coming into the next couple of years. I would also like to ask those Vince Young naysayers to step up and realize that you are wrong. This guy is unbelievable. His ability to evade defenders at will while running and being a solid passer makes him nearly impossible to defend. The most amazing thing about Vince's success this year is his lack of a supporting cast. He is playing behind an offensive line with 3 new starters, and his top two WR's are Drew Bennett and Brandon Jones. Also the Titans defense has vastly improved over the last few weeks and the stars are emerging under the leadership of Keith Bulluck, the most underappreciated defensive player in the NFL. The emergence of Pacman Jones has been huge as well. You can say what you want about his criminal record and whatnot, but when this guy steps on the football field, he is a monster. He is developing into a lockdown cornerback, and is probably the best punt returner in football right now. Heck, the guy is even getting 3-4 snaps a game on offense.

In summary, this is a turning point for the Titans. Once management is able to get some more solid offensive players to build around VY, look for the Titans to return to the prominence they had from 2000-2004. ;-D

It feels good to be a Titans fan again. This late surge might be all too late for this season, but I'm loving what this means for next years team. VY is gaining experience and is just picking defenses apart and is doing it the right way with his pass first mentality. Even though he is taking this mentality, it seems he can run on defenses at will. Maybe its just defenses not being able to stop him, or maybe it is just the defenses not have a good strategy. Either way, it's working and it doesn't look like he's slowing down.

This first round draft pick that we have this year is going to be crucial. We should get a pick somewhere within the 7-15 range and I think that we should just take the best available player. We still have alot of needs, (WR, OT, DE, CB, SS) but I am liking the turn around with the emergence of Young.

Like I said, it feels good to be a Titans fan again. :-)
